Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn York City Centre - Blossom Street North
Good Hotel and location
I was very impressed with the location of the Travel Inn. It is only a 5 minute walk from the Station and right in front of the Micklegate entrance through the City Wall. We walked everywhere and only ever seemed to be a 15 min walk back to the hotel.
The rooms are the standard Travel Inn model and were very clean and comfortable - we had a very quiet room at the back of the building. We never use the food facilites so cannot comment on these. But I found the staff very helpful for directions and they alwayds said hello when we walked past - really that's all I want from them.
All in all for £63 per night in the middle of York you cannot beat the Travel Inn. I stay in them quite often around the country as they are such good value and why pay for facilites in other hotels you won't use - we were out all day?
Awesome location next to Mickelgate
Literally a stone's throw from the Mickelgate entrance to Yorks city walls. This property also has limited on site car park which was a great thing since parking is scarce in York. However, if you need internet, as of May 2, 2006 they dont have wireless, still only has dial up. Like most rooms of this chain, reasonable size, clean rooms, clean property, nice and helpful staff.
We set out on foot and walked to Jorvik viking center, York Minster and all the other major sites was an easy walk.
Good But expensive.
Rooms: The room was great very specious and clean with a huge bed and a balcony overlooking the river and the rest of York.
Food & Drink: N/A
Staff: Friendly enough never had any problems.
Overall: A good hotel in a very good area of York very close to all the sites and the nightlife. But the hotel is quite pricey.
Great stay at travel inn
This hotel is in a great location for all of Yorks attractions,very clean and comfortable with very friendly staff.Stayed over easter with husband and two children in a large non smoking family room which was excellent value for money.We didn't bother eating at the hotel but had breakfast at Wetherspoons over the road(much cheaper).I wouldn't hesitate staying here again.p.s the Yorkshire Wheel is great!
excellent hotel! as pilots we stay en-route alot of the time, and with its fantastic location we could take advantage of the brilliant night life whilst having a fantastic trip! cheers x
Clean, friendly and comfortable
Stayed here for two nights at the beginning of October half-term. Arrived early - hotel had been booked out so couldn't check in but no problems parking car in CCTV car-park.
Friendly service, good clean room, helpful staff. Breakfast not bad.
Great location for exploring York.
All in all a great place to stay.
Did the job
The location, service, staff and bedrooms are fantastic however the motel should not take stag parties when there are children staying.
The noise and language was disgusting and made us ashamed to be British.
I cant begin to imagine what state the rooms would be like for the poor chambermaids to clean.
We saw grown men urinating in the car park and being sick out of the window.

Great hotel, great value, great location.
Excellant value for money and a great location just outside the city walls. Room was clean, spacious, and well positioned above the courtyard. Pleanty of pubs and restaurants right by the hotel. Staff were friendly and courteous. Would definately stay here again.
Family weekend away
Perfect location and accommodation particularly for family weekend. Great value and a first class standard of housekeeping compared to the dodgy 'family room' which we had in another York hotel. Would recommend to all young and old, singles, couples or families. Couldn't be faulted.
This hotel has the best staff we have met in along time. From the restaurant staff who treated our children brilliantly to reception who made us feel very welcome. The hotel offers great value and the rooms are clean and kept to a high standard

We had a leisurely 15 km walk today. Conditions were cloudy to begin with but brightened over the morning as the cloud broke up into beautiful balls of cotton. We started with a climb up Round Hill, the penultimate C2C climb. Once we reached the summit we again had beautiful views across to the east and back at yesterday's path over the 3 hills. The rest of the walk was along an easy plateau. Since entering the North Yorkshire Moors the the quality of the paths ...
... 2/3's along the stage we stopped at the busy Lord Stones Cafe and had cream teas. This place was a bit of a surprise in the middle of nowhere. It can be accessed from a narrow bitumen road so the tourist can get up there without burning a single kilojoule. Climbing up those hills afterwards with a belly full of scone and tea was hard work....it was!!!! The third and final climb took us through the Wain ...
... York is quite flat and we seemed to be able to see all of England from up there; including what one would consider the new cathedrals of England, huge power stations (at least 3) visible on the distant horizon. Check out the pics.
We our day was rounded off with a late lunch in a posh Italian(?) restaurant housed in a colonnaded Romanesque building. We ate pizza because we didn't want to afford anything else...but enjoyed the cool ambience.
... been 9 generations of artisans before it was finished.
And subsidence of the foundations of the cathedral in recent decades led to the discovery that it stood on top of at least three other sets of buildings. Truly, it represented a magnificent record of seven centuries of religious life, with in-jokes and self aggrandisement etc all included.
After not sleeping at all last time and my stomach doing backflips... I am finally on my way! Getting up at 6:00am to have a nice hot shower to help calm the nerves (I'm not sure if that's due to the long ass flight or the fact that I'm going to the other side of the world!) and taking my time to get sorted has paid off a little as I ...
