          • Couple
            7.0

            Location Bar area

            Room was very noisey. Breakfast tables too small. The room 7 bathroom needed updating.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            The pool and steam room were good. Hotel was warm when it was cold outside.

            Had to think hard to find a fault but although the breakfast was good quality, it was a bit small. 1 bacon , 1 small sausage.

          • Couple
            6.6

            Comfort, clean and very good pool access.....food great along with helpful staff

            Very small tv and also very squeeky floor boards and also a little old fashioned interior

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Had a four poster room (minus suite suggested in picture when booking), it was fine, slightly tired bathroom and squeaky floorboards but was fine for our 3 day stay. Had a meal one evening, food was lovely with reasonable choice of menu. Perhaps used to full scottish breakfast but preferred the croissant options over the full English on offer, bacon was fab! Would book again happily as overall a good place to base yourself while in York.

            Squeaky floorboards and bed.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            Comfortable rooms and friendly staff.

            Unfortunately the steam room was not working during our stay which was a shame as we chose this hotel because we wanted access to the leisure facilities advertised.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The quite locaion on the outskirts of the main city of york. Within walking distance of the main city of york town centre/sight seeing attractions and bust stop nearby also to access the city.The Service at breakfast was excellent as what the food. Staff friendlieness, comfort of the bedrooms. Staff supportive toward a crisis that arose and offered extra time in room if need be.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            The friendliness of the staff and the quality of the meals

            We had a room at the front of hotel overlooking the main road which was pretty noisey at times.

          • Group of friends
            7.0

            The staff were really helpful, with late night sandwiches, breakfast was all you could eat and well cooked. Beds were firm and comfortable

            I had 90 year old parents with me, and there is no lift and 12 stairs to dining room.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Food was excellent and always served piping hot. Staff friendly and pool/sauna was good.

            Menu not changed daily, if you stayed for more than one week and ate in every night you would have run out of choices. Bar & restaurant not particularly warm given season (winter), could be cosier.

          • Family with children
            8.2

            quiet, friendly, great location, pool great for kids.

            can't complain

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The break we had at Kilima was so relaxing,the staff couldnt do enough to help without being in your face.Everything was spotless,the rooms were so comfortable,slept like a log,always plenty of refreshments in the room without going to ask for more,soft fresh smelling towels in the room and pool area.Food was excellent,the restaurant staff always had a smile for you,Reception staff answered any question you asked and were so helpful and very friendly,all in all an excellent stay,we will be returning in the nxt 6 months with our son for another mid week break.....

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Breakfast was very good and the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Car parking was also excellent.

            Hotel situation was somewhat out of the city, requiring a fairly lengthy walk or bus ride.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Staff very friendly,although the breakfast waitress could have made a bit more effort. The manager very friendly and helpful.good breakfast. It is about a 20 min walk to the shops.

            Our bathroom didn't have a window,which made the bathroom smell fusty. Hotel is on a main road,while the window was closed it was quiet,but not when the window is open.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            We found it well located.Not too close to York to be noisy but close enough to walk into city. nice to have a pool, steam room etc.

            I booked a Four poster bedroom to have a romantic weekend. However we were put into a standard double. When I complained I was offered £10 a night refund. This was unacceptable. It's put me off Best Western

          • Family with children
            9.2

            Swimming pool facilities, friendliness of staff

            Sheets on the beds were about 12" too short and would have preferred feather pillows.
