    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

    ... no matter how many times I told her “Siri, that road is CLOSED!” she wouldn’t listen. So we just kept on until she gave up and re-routed us. We were taken on narrow, single-track roads through the Yorkshire countryside, with gorgeous views, beautiful horses, cows and sheep (always the sheep!), amazing trees, and on a gorgeous sunny day. It was a wonderful drive.

    There were also a lot of pheasant…as many in the road as there are quail in ...

    ... learnt on our tour is that these walls originally had very narrow ledges that the soldiers stood on, and more died from falling off the wall than being hit from the other side. It was the Victorians who were romantic that made the bulk of the ledges into wider walkways that they enjoyed - and we do today.

    In our wanderings we found a Tapa's restaurant which was not cheap, but it was nice. We had tortilla, croquettes - spinach ...
