... visit. After our visit we walked to Betty's to have cake and tea. Unfortunately there was a very long queue. David and I don't do queues and peering through the windows it just looked like everyone was crammed on top of each other. Personally I prefer Fortnum and Masons Diamond Jubilee Tea Room. We spent the rest of the day walking up and down the various lanes window shopping and then had a very pleasant walk back along the river and got back just before the ...
... as with other locks onto a tidal stretch to come out with a lot of revs to help with the steering control, save it for the bridges!". I see what he meant, the river is flowing pretty fast, so we are already doing twice the normal cruising speed circa 7/8 knots and there are two big bridges right in front of us. Power is needed to control the boat to make it safely through the arches with cars ...
... a "duck weed" issue on the Selby Canal but were surprised on how much there was and how green it was, it didn't look like there was a canal at all, under the luminous green covering.
Selby is a very pleasant small town and we moored in the basin at the junction with the River Ouse, well placed for our for our early set off time with tide on the way up to York ...
We are on the way again after a week at home. John and Vanessa join us at Lemonroyd Lock by the Marina and we head off on the second stage of our summer trip. First stop is Castleford to fill up with diesel, a simple process you might think, just like filling the car!!
Not quite so easy on the boat.
Two hours later after the chap at the Marina who was ...

There is a hedge maze and a path completely encased in vine covered arches and walls. The walled garden is in full bloom and the smell of roses overwhelms me. It's very picturesque, some flowers I've never even seen before and so many vivid colors! It's lovely ...

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
