We stayed on a Saturday night in December as we had booked a concert at York Barbican. I could not believe the price of hotels in York at the weekend, many more expensive than London! That's why we booked The Saddle as it was less than half the price of any in the centre. We could only get a basic... More

We had a double en suite room which of cost 80 for 2 nights. We checked in at half 1 with no problems and we're quickly shown our room. The WiFi password is displayed on the wall and we were given new bottles of water/coffee/tea/hot chocolate/biscuits whenever we had used up the last. We also got shower gel/shampoo/soap in our...

Stayed there as me and my friend was competing near by and was a great place, they were dry welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. They were very helpful for anything we needed, I would highly recommend for other people who go to York, I will definitely stay there again if I return!

The rooms were clean and comfortable. Everything you need for a short stay. No food available but great places to eat close by. On site parking was a bonus .& staff were friendly and helpful. A couple of miles from the centre of York so ideal if your on a budget .

Checked in late as booked last minute and had a 3 hour drive. Barman was really friendly and helpful. Allowed us to order food from some takeaway menus he had and even set us a table. One of the locals was really chatty and advising us where to visit for our flying visit of York. The room. Now this is... More

Thank you for your review. we are glad you found the barman and locals friendly! We endeavour to keep the rooms clean and comfortable and can only apologise about the damp smell in the bathroom. This problem has now been addressed with the installation of a new shower cubicle and tiles to replace the damaged tiles which had allowed moisture... More

Room was smelly, pillow was dirty, noisy from doors banging having a room that was next to the shared bathroom. We had ensuite which was dirty, rusty wire rack in shower. We walked out as we didn't feel we could sleep in this dirty smelly room. Certainly would not recommend. Also, we didn't get a receipt for our payment. Thought... More

I agree the stainless steel unit in the shower was rusty and it has now been taken off. However, I have checked the pillows and they are brand new and the rooms are cleaned thoroughly every morning and are definitely not dirty. If you felt so strongly about the condition of the room you should have brought it to the... More

I really don't know what people expect for the price they paid. The place is not that bad, it is clean and reasonable priced. Room was good sized and it was daily stocked with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, bottled water and biscuits. Yes the bathroom and the toilet was shared but it was clean and of course you can lock...

We came across this place when we were on our motorcycle trip through the UK. Although the owners were nice, the room itself was not so great. It smelled wet. And it was the morning we woke up. The bathroom was not clean. Just a place to sleep and get out. That's why we left as soon as we woke... More

It stinks! Mouldy bathroom, frayed carpet and melted carpet hidden under the bin. Dotty mattress cheap bed linen. Stayed here last minute and wish I wouldn't have bothered. Cheap room now I know why. Pay a bit extra and go somewhere else. Plough inn down the road fantastic Sunday roast and nice clean pub. Staff was friendly though and quick... More
