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

... as I remember. Thanks again to Mum and Dad for being our taxi and our tour guides.
A yummy take-away curry for dinner followed by games (of course) completed another lovely day.
P.S. We also saw an amazing street artist who earns a living by creating these masterpieces in the street and collecting money from passers by. The finished one we saw took him nine months to complete (see photo) and he was just starting another one....so cool. ...
The second day was our only full day in York, as tomorrow we are heading to Edinburgh. So we spent the morning in the York Abbey. It is colossal! It also has some of the best stain glass that I have seen thus far in my journey. We passed on the tower tour, because they were not running until the afternoon, but I imagine that would the cherry on the top of the visit. There is also a lot of history behind ...
... in the city. We use the peals of the bells to guide us to the cathedral. Once inside it becomes clear it's the most impressive church we have yet to set foot in. The church is enormous. Sunlight filters in through the glorious colors of the plethora of stain glass, more original stained glass than anywhere else in England, and it fills the nave with vibrant and yet soft warm light. The detailed and intricate carvings surround every crevice of space. ...
... keep expecting to hear a spell being cast or something magical happening. The magic is that I find the second place to get myself a beer.
Called the Old White Swan, the pub is really a collection of maybe nine buildings, each of them said to have a colourful history (earthy tones, lots of wood). Apparently more ghosts reside here, often seen warming themselves by the fireplace. I don’t see them as I get another heavier beer this time – a Yorkshire Terrier, brewed ...
The Hotel's wake up service malfunctioned this morning, but fortunately I left the curtains open and the sun woke me up. At 4:30AM...
First stop is York, which was really a fascinating city. It is basically a fortress, and a giant wall circles around the entire center of the city. I walked along some of the wall, which is quite high with no railing. Knowing how clumsy I am it's a miracle I'm not mush of the streets of York. Although I ...
