The pub is situated in an ideal location, only 5 or so minutes walk from many restaurants, and about 10 minutes walk from the city centre! When walking into the pub, me and my partner were shocked by how local it was, and were hoping this did not reflect the room upstairs. After checking in with a friendly member of...

Good beds, plenty of heating. But for 2 nights there were rats in the walls, plain as anything to hear. No cleaning was done, no rubbish removed or beds made, it was seriously dusty and very rundown. The shower cubicle was manky, the spray kept falling off as the bracket was broken, the muncher toilet couldn't cope, there was a...

We stayed here over two nights and was quite impressed with the place. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, the room spacious and warm and the location absolutely fantastic. The decor was a little run down and could perhaps do with renovation but it was clean and cosy with plenty of amenities. My only real gripe was the noisy...

This is a difficult review because it has a lot going for it but it's little bits that drag it down , Pros are location and price it's very cheap by York standards but the place just needs a good old clean and then redecorating from top to bottom and some new carpets throwing about the place . The pictures...

We recently stayed at the White Horse. We were so disappointed. On arrival we were stood at the bar for 5mins before anyone spoke to us. Then we were told our room wasn't quite ready, this was at 2pm, we eventually got to our room at 3. Once in the room I walked in and was disappointed that the room...

Stayed here for a last minute getaway. We booked last minute so choice was limited. The location of this pub is the best ever you're literally across the road from everything york has to offer. There is no parking and cost around 20 for the night across the road. Checked in with the lady on the bar who shown us...

stayed here a few times now, just a short walk from the train station and a stroll to the shops, bars and all the attractions. basic accommodation but as you would expect for the price, if like us you just need a basic place to sleep then it will suit you fine.

Very basic accommodation offered and for the price not to far from what I expected. The pub is within walking distance to Yorkminster and shops etc. The room and en suite were clean, with the tea and coffee pack only enough for one cup. So we were disappointed when no cleaner came in after our first night to replenish this,...

“Back bedrooms would probably be preferable in the summer as we were at the front and had to have the window open and is a very busy road and busy with people leaving the town in the early hours.”
