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

Travel Blogs from York
Driving to York today with Ruth and Charlie we stopped to view Hadrian's Wall at two locations. Maps 1-2. An 83 year old woman riding nearby said that on a clear day you can see it to the horizon. Running virtually from coast to coast we realise the Romans were making a serious effort to keep the Scots out of their domain. Not a lot has changed in 2000 years has it. We are still building walls either virtually or in other ways to keep others out. Thanks to Charlie for the long ...
... built around the few remains ruins of York Castle it's actually a very interesting and well laid out museum (which is good as I've seen a few recently). Sections on life in the olden days, children's toys and pastimes up until now, a great exhibition on The First World War and another on the 60s. You also went through a section of the old prison that was built in the area too. Very worthwhile (and I got to dry out a bit). It was this stage where I was so wet ...
... before stoping at a french style bistro called It had a good deal for a 2 course meal. I had an amazing slow cooked chicken and apple pie and mum had the steak and cream brûlée. Such a lovely warm meal on a very cold day. After lunch we went for a bit more of a walk, before the weather changed to rain. We have spent the evening doing all our washing in preparation for our tour to ...
... followed. Back outside and on our way to the castle museum we were surprised by some heavy rain! Of course we didn't have any umbrella so we ran through the streets looking for public washrooms. Once we found them a lovely lady gave us some garbage bags to use and we continued to the hostel. After drying off we ate our leftovers, the fresh fruit and some local chocolate we had purchased ...
... some time at the castle ruins, which were very interesting, as they have many different styles of architecture, in a beautiful setting. Many of the windows were bricked up to avoid the Window Tax which was introduced in 1696. After the Civil War, most of the buildings were slighted, so they couldn't be used against the Parliamentarians again. We had lunch at one of the 19 coffee shops and tea rooms in this town of 1500 people.
