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.

Booked a family room as a stop over in york. The booking.com website showed this bed and breakfast nice and welcoming but wasn't quite like that at all. After been showed to our room we found that it had a wet carpet with a tiny tv in it. It had a couple of lamps and what I would describe a... More

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

We then went to look around York and came back for 1830 to find the shower was only running cold... More

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
