I’ve been in and out of the city of York since dressed in short, woolly trousers and reviewing hotels as a travel writer as well as selecting the most appropriate for small group tours for the past six years. For Simonseeks I’ve chosen the full spectrum of York’s accommodation options, from the finest in lavish luxuriance, through the best in mid-range to the most rewarding guest house properties. For those on a budget or looking for somewhere that little bit different, I’ve also added a rather grand hostel (Ace Hostel) and a charismatic convent (The Bar Convent) to the mix.
The bottom line is that if I like it, my wife likes it and I get good reports back from the tours I help organise, then it's here.
* Simonseeks has given star ratings out of five for all accommodation
recommendations. With hotels, these will tally with the hotel's official star rating where
it exists. Where a hotel has no official star rating, and in the case of b & bs and hostels,
the experts have made a judgment as to how many stars the accommodation deserves, in terms
of comfort, level of facilities and so forth.
