Situated just beyond Micklegate Bar, The Bay Horse is ideal for a city break. Took my son to our favourite city and stayed for 5 nights at Dave and Libby's olde worlde public house. Booked through laterooms.com who failed to notify them that there were two guests, so whilst Libby split the double bed into two singles, Dave supplied a... More

Plus free parking, which is actual Gold - Dust in York!! Spoken as an ex York resident - We were initially shown into a pretty little double room on the front... More

Do not visit this establishment, we were provided with a poorly maintained room which had a smell of sewage in the bathroom, black mould, no hot water damp and dirt patches,broken shower screen,broken toilet seat. We stayed one night, that was enough! We also had to endure the offensive, threatening behaviour of a member of staff that said his wife... More

Visited York for the night for a friend's 50th. We stayed here. Fantastic first impression. The owners were really friendly and welcoming. Room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast this morning was excellent. I will definitely stay here again

Lovely little bed and breakfast, right in the centre of York and loads around it. Owners were lovely. Room clean and comfortable. Would stay again and definitely recommend to friends/family! Great weekend overall 😊
