We travel across the Moors which are very rugged but still covered with a patchwork of stonewall fences, sheep and streams running in every crevice. As we are on a Backroads Tour we tend to stay off the main roads and take the narrow country lanes - they don't seem wide enough for two vehicles but we always manage to pass - this is fine along the …
... favourite, with the cathedral's plain ceiling covering a series of smaller shrines, including that of St Cuthbert. Back outside, we visited the Cathedral Library via the cloisters. A librarian (a Kiwi) gave us an impromptu chat about the 13th century building, which used to house the refectory and the dormitories. Went back through the cobble paved alleys of town. Drove to York. Found the hostel and had dinner at Michael's Brasserie. Yorkshire Pudding for each. Lots of liver. Ate it ...
... to the challenge of eating soup with chop sticks on the plane. (Yes, it is possible!) I couldn't use chop sticks yesterday but with an empty belly and lack of choice i can be a fast learner! I'm gonna see if I can put my new found skills to work and ask a stewardess for some noodles. Wonder if I can seat surf in the dark back to my chair without spilling? :-) the sun's just starting to come up outside and it's beautiful watching it from above the ...
Officially, I think our trip starts today... our leaving do! Thanks for all the friends and family that were able to make it and we hope you enjoyed the little buffet we prepared. Thank you for the gifts we received too, a delicious cake from Richard and ...
... to continue on your way. I would have included synagogues, but these are few and far between, or are simply locked up during the day. Mosques are usually open, but they have few places to sit, so we avoid these as well. Anyways, after the service, we did have a chance to wander through the cathedral, and it is, indeed, grand and loaded with the history of its royal patrons and religious leaders dating back over the past 7 centuries. Besides that, it ...

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
