Premier Inn York North West Hotel
7 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
The best setting for a Premier Inn
"This hotel is set back from the main road and needs to be searched out if the area is unfamiliar to you, but once found this is one of the most pleasant Premier Inns I have stayed. Set in its own leafy grounds next to a traditional English pub.
The hotel felt new, the receptionist greeting very welcoming, the room a good standard that you would expect from this chain of hotels, and a pub with a good range of food and drink, and that open fire warmth you often get form the more traditional pubs.
Breakfast is served next to the reception desk in the hotel reception, although the food was adequate and the service acceptable.
I would not hesitate to stay at this Premier Inn again, and felt good value for money."

good location , nice and clean
"the premier inn north west is well located for a tourist thats planning on using park n ride
the park n ride into york city center is only a few minutes drive away and super easy to find , plus theres many large supermarkets /retail parks within a short drive
the inn has a beefeater attached which we found was very average at best , there are several other places to eat within 2 mins walk , they include a fish and chip resturant (eatin / take away) theres also a large chinesse and indian resturant in the same complex ...if youre on a tight budget theres also a petrol station that has a small co-op store inside thats handy for snacks or a bottle of wine etc
the premier inn is very clean and the rooms are maintained to a good standard , its fairly close to a busy road and rail track , but noise isnt really a big issue . i would say that the lack of air conditioning might be a problem on a hot summers day as the windows dont open fully for saftey reasons , there was a small tv with several channels and radio , the shower was nice and hot but poor water pressure
the staff were adament that we couldnt check in a minute before the 2pm check in time , although im sure they must have some rooms cleaned before then
the car park is large and has cctv cameras all over it"

a good base...
"We enjoyed our stay, the outdoor areas are well tended and pleasant to sit in. Three minutes drive away from a brilliant park & ride so time in York is accessible but at the same time the Dales, Castle Howard, Pickering etc are all in easy reach. The rooms were all you'd expect from this chain with a slightly improved general level, like better hairdryer and a good fan and Freeview TV. Don't have a coffee at the Beefeater it's supposed to be Costa but tasted like milk with a few grains of coffee! But the evening meal was good. I would stay here again,"

Poorer that I expected
"We traveled down a party of 6 (3 couples) for the York Races. We chose the premier Inn as it was cheap and that is all we wanted.
However upon arrival myself was paying with cash where I was informed about a policy where you have to have Photo ID, i was in shock as this is a policy ive only ever encounted when paying by card. I had a problem as i didnt have the required ID and even though i offered to leave my credit card detail with the hotel the less than helpful check inn girl refused and was insisting on photo ID. Luckily for me my partner had her Driving licence and we was able to check in.
The check inn girl was less than helpful and had an attiutde problem. She also mutterted that we should of known about the policy and we should of checked before hand.
Another member of our party also had trouble with the same girl when trying to get a sewing kit.
There was also one or two cleaness issues with the memeber of our travelling party and they have complained to the hotel.
Overall hotel was what we expected and needed but be warned even if you can charm a smile of the check in girl if you are paying cash then you need photo ID."

Little bit of piece
"We stayed here for just one night. We found the room basic but clean. It's just what we needed on this occaision. 1 double bed with a pull out sofabed thing. The beds were comfy but the pillows were too soft for me. The only downside was that our room was located next to a fire door on the corridor. Everytime someone went through, the door would bang.
We were greeted by friendly staff when checking in. Very willing to help and offering advice. It makes such a good impression when you are welcomed with a smile.
We decided to eat on the premises. There is a Beefeater restaurant and bar. The service was excellent. We would reccommend booking a table on arrival for the same evening. There are other places to eat close by, chinese, bengal and a fish and chip restaurant. We had the full breakfast option which is served in the Beefeater restaurant. Again service was excellent. The food served was tasty and very filling - good portions.
The hotel is close to a park and ride for York which we thought was ideal and reasonably priced.
We will be returning to this hotel in the future."

A good choice
"Having read the reviews on the Premier Travel Inn in York city centre we were a bit concerned about noise and stag parties so decided to stay in one of the ones on the outskirts.
The York NW Premier Travel Inn is situated in a quiet business park area about 3 minutes drive from Rawcliffe Bar Park and Ride. Apart from the Millfield Brewers Fayre which is attached to the hotel there are three other restaurants within a couple of minutes walk - a fish restaurant, a Thai restaurant and an Indian restaurant. The main E coast railway line passes close by but it's not really a problem with noise.
The rooms were quiet, clean and spacious which put to shame many rooms in far more expensive hotels. Staff were helpful and efficient and the only downside, which seems to affect all Premier Travel Inns, is that the shower head is not detachable."
