Sits in a great location 0.9 mile from york cathedral. Pub is 250yrs old so lots of character, breakfasts are ok cereal, toast, crumpets etc fruit is also available. Rooms very dated but bed was very comfy. This was our second visit as sadly our last, as when we arrived the barman checked us in and started using the f... More

After reading some reviews I was a little dubious about booking but as I was only going with a couple of mates I risked it. And I'm glad I did, we saved a fortune by booking at the 'Old Grey Mare' compared to some of Yorks ripoff hotels. The accommodation is basic but clean, the staff let you get on... More

We stayed in the annexe behind the main pub, which is a two bedroom apartment with a shower room shared between the two rooms. It was ideal for our purposes, we had five of us staying there for a couple of nights and we had plenty of space. This is not luxury accommodation, but it was clean, a short walk... More

Recently stayed here whilst visiting friends, sadly the accommodation was poor!! The heating system is rubbish. One minute the room is fine then your then hit with heat.The dials are broke on the radiator so you can't change the temperature so have to sit with the window wide open which means you have to listen to all the busy traffic...

The staff were friendly and accommodating, breakfast was filling and wholesome, on this visit we had a very small room, and the tiniest TV i have ever seen, but apart from that well placed for a short walk into the city for all the sight seeing attractions

After reading very mixed reviews of the Pub/B&B we were pleasantly surprised on arrival at the hotel. There was adequate parking at the back of the pub, and it's easy to get to driving or from the train station, park and ride buses pass outside and it's only about 10 minutes walk from town, a taxi was about £5 from...

Ok, so maybe we left it a tad late in booking... But still... As a family of 4 we paid £180 for a two night stay, which was reduced from £300 according to booking.com!!! The pictures and write up on booking.com portrayed this place too look good.. Well.. Threadbare carpets, stained curtains that didn't fit the windows.. Windows that didn't... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with my wife and can honestly say we thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice clean room and friendly staff plus the added benefit of its own indian restaurant which was delicious. We will be back in the near future as its probably the best value accommodation weve ever booked,well done to the grey mare.
