Spotlessly clean, very comfortable, great location. We didn't even have a problem parking. The best thing about this hotel is the host. Steve is marvellous and I would have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful little place.

The proprietor was very helpful regarding places to visit & eat at. He even dried our clothes when we were drenched in the York rains. What... More
