Premier Inn York City (Blossom St North) Hotel
20 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Budget Hotel near Railway Station
"Our main reason for our holiday in York was to visit the National Railway Museum. The hotel is 5 minutes from the railway station and 10 to 15 minutes from the city centre. There is also a supermarket nearby. The hotel is very modern, comfortable, spotless, well equipped with tea maker and hairdryer. The staff are very helpful. The dining room is small and you are advised to have breakfast early. I wouldn't recommend having dinner there as the food is OK but on the first night (having made a reservation) we were served 50 minutes after our order was taken and on the second night (without a reservation) we were served 30 minutes after our order was taken. On the third night we went to a lovely restaurant called Russells, 26 Coppergate York, which I would recommend. We did not use the car park as we travelled by public transport. We found the hotel economical as the children shared our room and there was an offer if an adult bought the full cooked breakfast up to two children had a free breakfast. We would stay there again. York is a lovely place to visit with children and we enjoyed the tourist attractions, the National Railway Museum, the wheel, a lovely model shop and display on the grounds of the railway station, the York and Castle Muesum, bus tour and viking centre. We were also fortunate that "Days out with Thomas" and a viking festival coincided with our visit."

Lovely budget hotel
"Just back from a stay of 2 nights. Lovely budget hotel. Parked in the NCP car park right next door and cost Â£9 for 24 hrs. Had read previous reviews about eating in the Wetherspoons across the road. We tried there on both mornings and they could only offer bacon egg and chips as they had no sausages,hash browns or tomatoes etc. On the first morning we went to a Yates across the river and had a good but more expensive breakfast (with chips). On the second morning we went to BHS and had an excellent cheaper one. The next time I stay there I'll be walking further and going there."

One of the UK's best kept secrets
"This is an absolutely superb place to stay. Great location and exceptional value for money in rip-off-Britain. We paid Â£70 a room for a very large, spotlessly clean and accomodating room...with built in hairdryer for the ladies! The staff couldn't have been more cheery or more helpful. We stayed 2 nights and found it to be very quiet. Copmare this to the 2 nights that we stayed at the hell hole that is the supposed 4 star Brighton Metropole (Â£225 a night + Â£14 parking) for a smelly and pokey room with service to match). However, be warned that as of this week (I dont know how long for... you will need to check) that they are refurbishing the car park ...only half a dozen spaces available...so you may have to park in the NCP around the corner. If you stay in York you must do the Ghost Tour (7:30pm) every day from the bottom of the Shambles...what a riot...the best fun Â£5 that you will spent in a very long time!"

Good affordable accommodation
"Located just outside city wall - very near to railway station Unable to park car but overnight carparking available in Railway Car park for Â£12.00. Room was very clean, tidy and comfortable however we stayed in a ground floor room and found that overhead noise was very disturbing. Very good location because everthing is in a walkable distance. Nice staff - Breakfast option is good if like to fill your tum before you move on otherwise eat locally for a cheaper option. I would use this premier inn again."

"We stayed at the York Premier Inn for two nights between Christmas and New Year. The location of the hotel was perfect - close to the train station for one of our party, yet only a short walk into the centre of town. The hotel itself is undergoing some building work but as we visited during the Christmas Holidays, no work was happening! This also meant we were able to use the car park, which is currently listed as unavailable on the Premier Inn website. The staff were very polite and helpful, the room was huge and clean as I would expect from this chain of hotels. I would definitely use this hotel again if visiting York"

Nice hotel - great reception staff
"Good location - less than 10 minutes to the shops and just round the corner from the railway station. Fairly easy to find by road. Go into city from west on the A1036, turn left at traffic lights on junction of A1036 (Blossom Street) into Queen Street and turn 1st left into drive at rear of hotel. Can confirm what other reviews have said - good fair sized rooms and breakfast. MOST IMPORTANT -at the moment there is no carparking at the hotel because they are extending. This means you are supposed to used the NCP carpark behind or a multi storey car park nearby (Â£10 for overnight stay). Reception staff were great - my friends had arrived at the hotel before me and asked about parking - I really didn't want to leave my car any distance away. They let me park on the access drive at the rear of the hotel, I could even see my car from the room. There is also a reliable taxi firm next door to this hotel. Happy sight seeing..."

"Great Hotel. The rooms are large modern and clean. The bed was huge and the breakfast was fantastic, good quality and as much as you like. It's in a good location too, nice and central but quiet too. Just a short walk from the railway station. I'll certainly go again next time we visit York!"

great place to stay
"This is the first time we have stayed here and it was great, we had a very large room and bathroom which was lovely and clean. It was very close to the town centre which was good. Reception staff very helpful and the breakfast was fantastic, eat and drink as much as you want. Myself and my husband will be returning with the kids on our next visit we really enjoyed our 1 night stay wish it could of been longer."

Great location and value
"This is a FANTASTIC place to stay for the money. It is really central, and the rooms are clean and spacious. Even though the hotel was full of we never heard a sound from anyone else. The staff are helpful and friendly. There is a good bar in the hotel and great restaurants nearby. The only thing I would say is avoid the pub next door- The Windmill- the staff are rude and the wine is awful. Use the hotel bar instead where house bubbly is only Â£22 a bottle!!"

No Problems yet again
"We have become abit of regulars when it comes to staying at Premier Travel Inns and York shows again that these are value for Money. To be able to park in the City Centre for free is well worth it. Decor is as usual for the Premier Travel Inns but you know what you are paying for."

Convenient and unpretentious
"As a family of 4 starting a holiday in the U.K, we chose to go to York straight from London. The Premier Travel Inn was a true easy walk from the railway station, our rooms were ready as expected, and we were able to set out immediately to explore the city centre. Small, comfortable and clean rooms best suit a short stay (2-3nights). Good value buffet breakfast. Able to get some fresk milk at the bar for our cuppa in the rooms. Helpful reception staff. Close proximity to a number of pubs serving good food and beer. We would return."
