We returned to this fabulous little hotel for a 2 night stay and once again , Paul and the Bay Horse didn't let us down. We stayed in suite no. 4 which we hadn't stayed in before and it was gorgeous. Spotlessly clean , fantastic bed and lovely quality bedding. The hotel is close enough to the centre to access... More

We came across the Bay Horse whilst looking for somewhere to have a quick dinner whilst en route back South. It was close to the Marygate car park which was a bonus. Meals arrived quickly and were surprisingly good for a "pub" as opposed to a gourmet restaurant. We weren't after a romantic dining experience and maybe the World Cup... More

On a day trip to York we wanted somewhere for lunch that was less busy than the very centre of York. Although nearby The Bay Horse perfectly fitted the bill. Varied lunchtime menu. The food arrived quickly and was lovely. We all (nine of us) enjoyed our choices and as it was a warm day we ate outside. The service... More

We stayed 1 night at the Inn and had a very pleasant stay. Special thanks to Paul, the Manager, who helped one female member of our team (who was not booked into the Inn) to find accommodation elsewhere in York. Paul even went out with me in his car to collect her and take her to her newly arranged accommodation.... More

We stayed at the bay Horse from the 27th to the 29th May. We were in room 4 which was beautiful spacious and clean . Unfortunately, the owner never smiled once and was rather unfriendly which spoilt things. There was no atmosphere in the bar/lounge area so we didn't have a meal there. Also, at breakfast we were given a... More

Great location for visiting York, good parking a couple of yards away. Spacious modern room. Quite noisy at night from banging doors. Room was cleaned the first day and refreshments were replenished, unfortunately this was not the case the second day.

The room was most comfortable, SPOTLESSLY clean, very quiet & spacious with an enormous shower. A beautiful walk through the Museum park or along the river path to the fascinating... More
