Superb 9.0 From 73 reviews

Very good 8.0
Convient, comfy B&B
Waratah on York is located on top of a hill with lovely views over city park. Beware it's very steep hill to walk down (and up). The staff we exceedingly friendly and gave very helpful suggestions on where to eat and things to do. The continental breakfast was above average, and the offer of hot croissants was a very nice touch. The cleanliness of the room was great, we had a couple of comfortable chairs, a reasonably comfortable king size bed and a spa bath. The bathroom amenities were nothing memorable, but were provided. The only downside is that it is a bit of bugger to find at night, (so is their key safe). But the texted instructions on how to use the safe and wifi were great. The biggest annoyance is when a hotels puts up a sign up asking guest to be environmentally conscious and hang up their towels, (which I am happy to do) but then the half flush on the toilet doesn't work.

The room was clean and pleasantly furnished for the era of the establishment.

I was unable to stay at the Waratah on York as there was a double booking. Claire at the Waratah went out of her way to find me another hotel and escort me there. Will be very hesitant about using your online booking service again. Very disappointed as this has happened to me before.
