We had a weekend booked in York last weekend, we couldn’t get out of the date and left booking accommodation quite late so we were wondering what we would end up getting. We had a look on booking.com and found a hotel called the Hollies. It was really well priced and the reviews were excellent so we booked it before anyone else did!
The hotel is in a brilliant location and only 15 minutes walk into the centre which you can do along the river. It’s in a quiet area and the parking is great (both at the hotel and free on street).
The owners give a really nice welcome and it’s informative and quick to give you maximum time to get into the room, freshened up and back out again.
When we got into our hotel we were blown away. The decoration is really lovely and well put together, it’s a really relaxing feel to it with loads of comfy cushions and a daybed to snuggle up on. It gave us tons of ideas for the house much to The Fiance’s annoyance!
Breakfast was brilliant too and had a good choice with fresh fruit and good coffee. You had to choose your breakfast the night before which was unusual but they say it’s to speed up the time it takes to get the food to you so I’m alright with that if it meant I could spend more time in York!
We were sad to leave and really wished we’d taken another day to enjoy the atmosphere. There’s something about York that I can’t get out of my system so much so that it’s where The Fiance will be becoming The Husband in just a few short months and the Hollies is definitely going on our accommodation list for guests.
