Historical Traveler Reviews The Churchill Hotel York
Rooms have grand names, but grand hotel it is not!!!
Room was very small, very dusty, and had a few cobwebs. Spare pillow in wardrobe was very stained and unusable. Shower was more of a dribble. Not very impressed and would not stay there again if in the area.
Lovely service and food, bed was horrible!
In York on business. Had to move rooms because the bed was so uncomfortable and the shower was tiny...The new room was beautiful, but dusty behind the tv and above the armoire. The beds was really hard and uncomfortable and shower pressure nonexsistent...I enjoyed the staff and they did everything they could to assist me during my stay were incredibly nice and hospitable. In addition, the breakfast was outstanding! If you are able to sleep anywhere, want a historic feel in a small setting, I would reccommend the hotel...
FANTASTIC! (and I'm fussy!)
Great hotel. Food delicious, staff very helpful and
room very comfortable
My wedding made special - 1996
Not wanting a big wedding, we selected the Churchill as from the moment we stepped through the door the staff made us feel welcome.
Nothing was too much trouble for them and on the Big day itself, myself & guests were given 100% attention.
The food was superb -we did not have to go with their menu but given the chance to select food appropriate to our requirements.
The room was laid out beatifully and the service was excellent.
I would recommend the hotel to anyone wanting "something special" and indeed friends who have stayed have thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
So disappointed we changed hotels!
We were very dissapointed with this hotel. We had reserved the best room, the bridal suite, on their recommendation. When we arrived the hotel reaked of cigarette smoke which made it feel seedy. The room was large and full of old furniture and felt very 'historical', unfortunately though it wasn't clean and the bed wasn't made up for us. Everything needed a good polish. the mirrors were dusty and the bathroom was filthy. The facilities such as coffee making equipment and television were also of poor quality and badly supplied eg. only one packet of very manky custard creams. We were not impressed especially for the money that we had paid. As this was a special occassion for us we decided that we would prefer to find another hotel rather than have a poor room. We then found a lovely hotel that overlooked the York Minster that was clean and friendly with great views.
Enjoyed my stay here enormously. Great food - brilliant and informative staff. Made our special break even more special. Left feeling like we were old friends.
Thumbs up for Winston Churchill
First class accommodation, friendly staff, good food - a most enjoyable stay!!!!!
Hotel without Honour
I visited York to select a hotel for a special weekend with friends.
The Churchill accepted and confirmed my booking for 5 single rooms only to cancel them a week later on the grounds that they might be able to let them at a higher tariff as doubles! It did not matter to them that their refusal to honour the booking meant that my "reconnaissance" trip had been entirely wasted.
Our favourite for special celebrations
We have stayed at the Churchill 3 times - always for special celebrations, birthdays and anniversaries etc. It's a "Gem" very good sevice, fantastic food and smashing rooms - we have always had a jacuzzi style bath. We will be going back for my birthday weekend in January 2004.
Loved the Churchill Hotel
good service, very pleasant room. The dining room and the food were both excellent. Will be happy to visit the Churchill again

Today we are in Yorkshire. We have driven further North, the countryside has changed. We passed by Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds. All major cities but we wanted smaller and unique places in the countryside to experience.
York is the kind of place that makes you wish – if only for an instant – that the Industrial Revolution …
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 ...
... can still be walked along. It was twilight by this time and looked eerie, timeless and brilliant at the same time. Note: some of the pictures are lighter than it actually was! All in all a good little stopover. I felt more satisfied than some of the other 1 nighters (like Liverpool) in that I managed to see a few things before dark! Tomorrow's entry should be light-on. As mentioned at the top, I have a quick sleepover in London before I leave the UK for Paris and ...
... 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 ...
... Elizabeth is fascinated by. The most surprising thing about the museum is the boys' reactions; particularly Kaeleb, who seems completely diffident to the museum. Rather than look at the trains they continually ask about visiting the gift shop. We try to get the boys to pose for pictures and they are noncommittal and indifferent. Both Chris and Elizabeth are surprised at their disinterest as Kaeleb in particular has been talking about this museum and ...
