I would highly recommend the Guy Fawkes Inn in York. Being right beside the Minster, this hotel surely has to have the best location of any in the city. Following recent renovations, the hotel is also now very stylish and, probably more importantly, I found the staff to be friendly.
On the downside, it is not cheap and the hotel does not have its own car park. However, the Guy Fawkes Inn is certainly not the only York hotel to suffer from these problems.

As far as I know, this is a new York hotel (at least I've not seen it previously). It's rather small with around 10 rooms, but is extremely comfortable and luxurious. It has the feel of a guest house, rather than a hotel, and also benefits from being right in the centre of town.
