The Churchill Hotel
Travel Blogs from York
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 …
Glad to leave Chester - great accommodation, creepy place. The place fills up with revellers from Liverpool and they are noisy. Today we travel through the moors and dales of Yorkshire. It was an emotive day for Michael , it being one year since Jessie Vross? His wonderful mum, died. We stopped in Hayworth then Keighley and I became really …
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 …
... find anything to do after we'd driven around the old town. We returned our hire car, and they drove us out to the dock to board our ferry. The driver was very informative, just like a private tour guide.
We boarded several hours prior to departure, and it was a good opportunity to have a rest. We had an outside cabin with views of the dull and uninteresting Port of Hull. It was low tide, the mudflats were exposed, and it took about ...
... and patented the Economiser machine that saved coal fired steam run factories money on energy coasts. Frank left the house and all the contents (a huge collection) to the National Trust - we spent a long time wandering the rooms and garden. To top off the day we walked through the Museum gardens and along the river in the glorious sunshine, then back through the winding streets of The Shambles area. Two nights was not long enough - we leave for the Lake District ...

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.
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
