We stayed with you from the 4th-6th May. We were in room 514. We just want to say a huge thank you. It was our first time in York and we got engaged during our stay. All the staff were great and made it a very special few days for us. We want to thank you for the surprise room service the night we got engaged with Champagne and fruit. It was such a lovely treat and added to the excitement.
We want to say a special thank you to Helen, who was Duty Manager. Jacob who was working on the bar and Simon who serviced breakfasts. We had a great time and can’t thank you all enough.
Needless to say, our next visit to York we will be staying with you again.
Thank you all so much
Stayed for one night at the end of February! Could not fault the hotel, the room was stunning, staff on reception were extremely friendly all while what seemed to be a refurbishment of the area happening, this didn’t affect us in anyway. Car park was useful and the hotel itself is in a great location. Will be sure to book in to hotel 53 next time we’re in york.
Recently visited the beautiful city of York over the Easter break and stayed at Hotel 53 for two nights. Lovely hotel, great location. Dan, resturant supervisor was amazing. Great guest service, nothing was too much trouble. A very passionate and hard working young man. Ate dinner in the resturant one evening, compliments to the chef. Breakfast great too.
On our arrival we were greeted by the courteous, helpful staff… The room was perfect… Immaculately clean and proportioned… A very good shower and nice comfy bed… Located near to most everything we needed in the city… Breakfast was good with plenty of choice…
My husband and I spent four nights at this fantastic establishment and absolutely loved it! The reception staff were always polite and helpful, the rooms were comfortable and very clean with a lovely shower. The hotel is situated within walking distance to most of the must sees of York.
The highlight, without a doubt, was the restaurant. We ended up going twice during our stay, the food was outstanding! My husband had the steak and I had the pork escalopes, both of which are two of the nicest mains we’ve ever had anywhere. The head chef Peter is very talented!! The service on both occasions was impeccable, Daniel served us one our last night and the lovely Mitch on the first night, cannot fault either of them.
Just back from a 2 night stay in this lovely hotel. The hotel was everything we were looking for, it was spotless and modern and in the best location, just a 5 minute walk from the centre. Could not fault this place.
Very clean and modern hotel in a great location both any for the main shopping and tourist attractions also close to the Barbican Theatre. Staff very polite and helpful and rooms very comfortable and clean. Had a great nights sleep.
I have just stayed at this hotel and can not fault it one bit. The rooms are very modern and clean. The beds are so comfy and it was perfect. I stayed bed and breakfast and have to say it’s definitely worth paying the extra.
“Wonderful room, clean and warm. Brilliant shower, lovely staff. Even had a sofa which gave it a more homely feel. We will come back again!”
“The room and location were great, but the breakfasts were out of this world. There was a huge amount to choose from, and they could even cater for my gluten free needs! I’d definitely stay there again.”
