A reasonably priced room for a weekend visit to York for my wife & I. Some of the negative reviews previously posted here seem a bit fussy. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. We arrived a couple of hours before the advertised check-in time, but after a quick check that the cleaner had finished in the...

Very old accomodation. Poor toilet conditions and bad shower pressure. Bed was good and the floor is very cracky and sloppy. Ok to spend 1 night or 2 but no more than that. It is very noisy at night but its close to city centre and the owner is very nice and helpful.

10-minute away from the riff-raff of the city centre, you'll find this accessible yet secluded enough to feel like you have your own bit of town. It's a fairly traditional pub with modernised accommodation upstairs. It has a pool table, and the pub is quite homely. Rooms are small but comfortable and have everything you need, including tea and coffee...

I stayed here for 2 nights over Christmas week and had a nice stay. Our room had 2 single beds in and was clean, the bathroom was small but adequate for what we needed. The breakfast was tea, coffee, toast, eggs, cheese, ham and toast, you just get what you want which was quite nice. The main problem I had...
