    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

    ... this was is that the town and seafront are on slightly different levels; probably about 40 metres different. We walked through the town learning of its origins; being foundered by Henry Pease as a village for his workers to find some recreation. He had Quaker beliefs so the village seemed similar to its midlands equivalent in Bournville. We walked into the gardens which are maintained around the salt burn and walked back along the stream to the sea ...

    We fond the Cobblestone Cafe in the centre of Grassington and we enjoyed the paninis with tea. As we were looking for a table another couple offered to let us share their table in the courtyard outside so we passed the time waiting for lunch chatting to a couple from Chesterfield who were staying nearby for a few days walking.

    The weather today was supposed to be reasonable so, after a walk in the grounds of the Abbey, we set off in sunshine for a couple of visits to National Trust properties near York. The Abbey has opened a new orc************ on the other side of the river to the Hall and this is a grab meadow to wander through as well as giving great views of the Hall itself.
    The fist stop was Beningbrough Hall just north of ...

    ... where the boys will be. There is a balcony and it all looks very new. The kitchen has a washing machine in it so we are able to do our clothes for "free" and we've already hit the local grocery store for food for all day tomorrow and lunches on the train the next day.

    For dinner we went to a place called Cosmos on the river through York. It was amazing! For 15 pounds each- which is kind of expensive- we were able to eat at a buffet that had a ...

The Chinese rose petal tea was delicate and a real delight to sip away on as you stared outside at the world go by. It is truly a gorgeous place, had an elegant 1940's feel to it. complete with silver service and waiting staff dressed immaculately in crisp white shirts and aprons, and neat black knee length skirts. Lining the streets of York is remnants of a Roman ...
