On the Plus side it is very inexpensive and reasonably close to York, about 15 minutes walk to the Cathedral. We didn't have any issues with the heating as other reviewers have had, it was cold out, but the room was (very) warm even with the radiator turned down. On the down side, it is an old building and the... More

I booked here for Fri 13th Feb and for valentine's on he 14th. We checked in at 1430 and had our money taken before being shown the room and told the boiler broken, but would be fixed on the afternoon. We then went to look around York and came back for 1830 to find the shower was only running cold... More

Stayed here 13th Feb 2015. Room was freezing no heating on, quilt cover was really thin and slept in clothes all night. Pub noise was very loud. I will not be booking again. Towels were old and thin, toilet flush was dodgy. Room was clean enough but needs updating. Could not sleep another night in a cold room. Advise owners... More

Shown to a room by the guy on bar, I commented on how cold the room was. He said he had to go back to the bar. The radiator's thermostatic valve was broken and the radiator stone cold. There was an oil filled radiator we had to switch on...took 3 hours to heat up. Bulb was bust in one of... More

Myself and friends just wanted somewhere to crash for a night out and it was satisfactory for that. It was clean but only light worked in our room (room 10), we asked for the bathroom light to be fixed but it was neve done. We also got kicked out by a cleaner at 10am...this was not advertised on the website.... More

We have traveled round the world and stayed at some of the finest hotels and found things you... More

You get what you pay... More

Car park to rear is free and was empty! Location is a 15min walk into York town centre, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Room was spotless and silent considering how busy and loud the pub below was. Bed was a little uncomfortable and smaller to what I'm used to but I'm heavily pregnant so can't really fault it....

We stayed over the Halloween weekend. The Old Grey Mare was a cheap b&b and fitted the bill. 10 mins easy walk from the minister, small car park on site, friendly helpful staff, cheap beer. Limited continental breakfast, budget rooms , hot showers. I would guess that this is probably used by contract workers normally, the whole place could do... More
