We stayed here for one night midweek and enjoyed our stay. Arrived at lunchtime and was shown straight to our room. It was a very nicely decorated room, clean and with tea making facilities plus tv. It was an ideal location being only 10 - 15 minute walk into the city centre. The breakfast was cooked lovely with plenty of... More

We were greeted very nicely at checking but those booking should be prepared for a place that falls short when there are so many great places out there. Plusses. Walking distance is good to York but we do run marathon's so be prepared for 15 minutes each direction. Some may find it a little further than desirable. Cozy room was... More

What an amazing place! On arriving we noticed the beautiful hanging baskets outside and a nice big car park. When we went inside it was clean and friendly and we booked in with a very friendly young man behind the bar. Nothing was too much trouble as we were shown to our room. Beautiful bed linen, lovely big soft towels,... More

We needed somewhere to stay in York on a Saturday night and this was one of the only places we could book into that had a family room and a single that was in our price range. We had read many good reviews and felt confident in securing a nice place to stay. The young lady behind the bar showed... More

Used to come to the Nags a lot, but stopped a while ago when it started to go downhill. Heard good things about new managers so we gave it another go. Massive difference. Great welcome, food wonderful, and the place was CLEAN. Definitely be back.
