      Historical Traveler Reviews The Newington Hotel York

      What's the fuss!? We loved it!

      from

      Read other reviews. Bit of a mixed bag so decided to give the Newington a go. Had a truly wonderful time during our brief visit to Yorkshire last month. All the adverse comments on previous reports seem to have been addressed as we could find no fault. The Newington came up to expectation, clean, very friendly and well run. Nothing was too much trouble, even when we asked to leave our car in the car park all day when we had checked out! Dinner was included in our Low Season deal and we were not dissappointed. The food is of good quality, nicely presented and plenty of it. We can give the Newington the thumbs up, so don't be put off by what others say. We were delighted and will go back.

      Could have been great, sadly it was poor

      from

      Staff were pleasent enough, however the room though serviced, had thick

      layers of dust on all ledges. The shower was a disgrace, just attached

      to the bath taps. The heating was switched off so the room was freezing

      on arrival and took an age to warm up ( in the middle of December no

      less ) It was a short walk from the town which was good however so were

      a great many more GOOD hotels.

      The food selection was quiet good however my wife and I were horified to observe who seemed to be the head waitress split a bowl of ice cream between two diners using her fingers even though there was a serving spoon next to her. Thankfully the diners were busy in conversation and missed this. A very overpriced B&B. A very poor reflection on the English and a beautiful City. We would not stay again, ever.

      Had a brilliant stay

      from

      Just returned from another stay at The Newington had a fantastic time.

      Staff were very helpful, meals were excellent and rooms were very well maintained. I have stayed here on several occasions and have always enjoyed my stay, only wish I had stayed over a little longer as did not have enough time to visit all the attractions of York. I would recommend the Hotel to anybody I know.

      We keep going back

      from

      We found The Newington a couple of years ago. Since our first stay we have become almost regular visiting up to three times a year. Have stayed in a number of different rooms. All are clean and well decorated. The food has a degree of traditional about it but is always pleasantly served and in our opinion value for money. No pretentions here! If you do not mind the ten minute walk into town then this is the ideal place to stay when visiting York.

      Avoid like the plague

      from

      Having spent one night in this hotel I pray all who read this listen.

      The hotel is a disgrace, I have digital photos of the filth in the bathroom, the damp on the walls and the peeling wallpaper and I am in the process of formal complaints about it to various authorities. My daughters bed was broken and the sheets dirty. Our room was next to a busy main road that carried traffic all night. There was also a bus stop just feet from our room! The pool is pathetic, next to the bar on a busy corridor and there are no changing facilities. We ate in the restruant (but did not eat), set course menu 16.95, the starter was a disgrace so we left it and when the main course arrived we refused to eat it and left. We are not fussy people but this room was 115 per night!!!!!!! Please Please listen.

      Disgusting!!!

      from

      Partner and I stayed there a few weeks ago. An overpriced, overrated, dump. There are many, many better, cheaper, value-for-money, cleaner, places to stay in the York area.

      Dirty, small room. Bathroom facilities from Trainspotting. Pay fee to use the sauna. Pool not available. Unhelpful staff.

      Made Fawlty Towers look like the Hilton, at double the price.

      Great stay at The Newington

      from

      Had a wonderful stay at The Newington last week. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and the standard of housekeeping immaculate. The food in the restaurant was wonderful and all the waiting staff smiling and most helpful. Can't wait to go back!

      Dissappointed, not half!

      from

      My wife and I booked for two nights at this Hotel, one was enough. On arrival we were directed to the annex (this was not disclosed on booking), our twin room was the dingiest I have seen. The ceiling paper was loose, no spoons to stir our coffee, one saucer and chewing gum stuck on the window sill. I immediately complained to the reception who offered us another room. This room was moderately better however the TV only had two channels and it was damaged, the handles on the units were loose and as it was getting late we reluctantly accepted the new room. The next morning we woke to find that our clothes which we had hung in the wardrobe were lying on the floor of the unit as the pole fixings had came away from the sides of the unit. So as not to be completely negative the bar area was quite nice as was the dining area. Grossly overpriced.

      Second-rate and overpriced!

      from

      We were trully fooled into planning a weekend break at the Newington!! The place portrays itself as a luxury hotel, but is nothing but an ordinary (and seriously overpriced) B&B.

      Problems included:

      - The advertised pool was not functional (we were not even made aware of that when we callled to confirm our booking!).

      - The rooms were small and dark.

      - The carpets were dirty, especially under the beds which had not seen a vaccum cleaner for a long time.

      - Reception service was poor.

      - To use the sauna for 30 minutes - a fee of 5 was charged. Needless to say that we didn't use it.

      - Scrambled eggs were watery and tasteless and the breakfast room resembled a factory.

      So the 85 per night was clearly outrageous for such an ordinary place and dull place with no charm!!

      Weekend at the Newington

      from

      Our stay at the Newington was excellent. My husband and I could not fault any part of our stay. The swimming pool was warm and very inviting, our four poster bedroom was lovely also the jacuzzi. The food was brilliant, service friendly, nothing was too much trouble.

      ... home of the Bronte sisters. The parsonage museum is very interesting, it's quite eerie to stand in the rooms that Charlotte slept, lived and wrote in, and there were some very touching family items such as her wedding bonnet and a cap made for the baby she was carrying when she died. I think I have my summer reading sorted as I really want to revisit the books I loved as a child now that I've seen the places where they were brought to life.

      Last day in York

      A travel blog entry by martina.elise3 on Nov 19, 2014

      Quite day in York with everyone else now gone. My dorm now is just myself and another girl who keeps to herself. It's boring without other people. Went for a walk around town and found the markets and disney store then headed over to see the Clifford Tower and the York museum. Not a very full on day, just a quite one plodding along before heading up to ...

      ... ooze, unfortunately) and is not only lovely but is darn close to the Cathedral and the center of the Old Town. We wandered in search of dinner, found a pub that was still serving after 9pm (after finding an adorable shopping district called The Shambles) then came back to our B&B. The girls declined dinner with us and instead found burgers and pizza which they brought back to the B&B. I'm trying to understand and be ...
