When I booked the Fort I actually thought I'd booked a hotel at a bargain price (no glasses on) I was initially very apprehensive after realising I'd booked a hostel but there was absolutely no need, it was fabulous absolutely fabulous, the room was spotless, fabulous bathroom and the hosts brilliant and helpful, we loved it and would without a doubt stay there again, the location is perfect infact everything about it was perfect 5* thank you
Very clean rooms and comfortable beds. Useful kitchen area. Nice and quiet environment. Our dorm got very hot in the night despite no heating and the windows open. Keneddy's next door is a good bar to start and end the day in. Betty's cafe is 5 minutes walk away.
The Fort is in a very central location so while it is very convenient for visiting the centre of York, it was extremely noisy on a Saturday night! We were kept awake by music from the bar downstairs until about 3AM. The room itself was spacious, clean and nicely decorated, and the self-access worked well. I imagine this would be a much better place to stay on a weeknight.
Myself and wife Stayed in one of the forts apartments, midweek, the staff were very polite and helpful, great location central to city centre, and apartment was very very clean and tidy with everything you could need for your stay I would highly recommend the fort as a place to stay and we will definitely be using these apartments again,
Absolutely loved staying here, would book again 100% if it was on a quiet weekday, it's just a shame that we woke up every hour due to noise coming from above, below and outside! Didn't get a good nights sleep but understandably that's not the hotels fault, however there was a couple staying here below us who was having an argument at around 3am screaming for what seemed like forever. Beautiful, clean apartment, was not expecting it to be so large!
