If you're looking for luxury then this isn't thwvplace for you. However if you're looking for friendly staff, great service, clean comfy beds and unbelievable value then this is perfect for you!! Location is amazing, only a brisk walk from the Minster and historic beautifulness that is York! I don't usually sleep well in hotels but I found it very... More

First the good bits, The rooms are very keenly priced, clean and pleasant enough given the price. Its an easy 15 min stroll into york itself and also easy access for the station. Now the not so good stuff. First dont use the sink and shower together as the sink causes unpleasant black bits from the drain to invade the... More

I had read that this place was terrible. I read that the locals were unfriendly. Not true. The rooms were a bit tired but as a base for the weekend it was fine. The locals were great and gave good advice as to where to go for football match and at night. 15 minute walk into York. Locals even told... More

I would not stay at this establishment again. Carpets were stained, as were the curtains and bed linen. Breakfast was basic and milk was off! Stay at your own peril! The only plus point was that you could walk into York city centre in about 15 mins, which was fab!

Staying close by we thought we would try this pub. We dined in the restaurant 2 nights in a row and the food was good and the staff absolutely wonderful. We ordered many a drink and even took friends with us on the second night. Alas this can not be said for the pub itself. DO NOT expect a warm... More

My mistake for not reading the reviews. We were in a huge hurry to book a room as it was late in the day. We booked the two room cottage. Stay away! We paid a fair amount of money for this place and .... Yuck! It smelled. Furniture was dated. No hand towels in toilet. In fact no hand towels... More

We stayed at the beginning of July. Very cheap accommodation, only 10/15 walk to town with free parking. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok, choice of fruit, cereals, toast etc. Room was ok size, bathroom dated with cracked sink and curtains didn't meet the window sill, letting a lot of light in. Room was clean and had tea/coffee... More

Went into bar to book in, felt like we had just killed the towns favourite person we were gleared at by all the locals, the room was tiny, the tv was tiny and didn't have a remote and would only go on one chanel and one volume. The bed was lumpy and the shower was small and dribbled out, breakfast... More

Stayed here for 2 nights by mistake after reading the wrong reviews!! Our room had furniture which would not close or leaned precariously, a reading lamp with all the innards hanging out, a bedside lamp with a melted shade and a shelf which actually tipped over when I placed a cup on it. The bed was so old we could... More

Having already stayed in one other place in the area, which shall remain nameless, I stumbled upon this place whilst looking to have a few pints. I was greeted by the owners and welcomed by the regulars - this is a really friendly place. So, when I realised they did B&B I swiftly booked to stay here for the following... More
