First of all, this is a cheap(ish) hotel that is situated a short 15 minute walk into the City of York (along the river). The walk is beautiful and a lovely way to see York. Secondly, I arrived with no expectations and have read some of the other reviews. I was here for work so just needed somewhere to sleep,... More

On the website it stated check in from 14:00. Well we did, but were told we couldn't get into the room till 16:00. So we said we would head into York and return about 22:00. After walking around the city we were looking forward to a hot drink and watching the 2nd half of Costa Rica V Netherlands. On arriving... More

This must be the guesthouse with the world’s most incompetent management. I turned up at about 4pm to enquire about the possibility of taking a single room. The owner advised me that he had no single rooms, but I could stay in a twin room for which he would charge me £74, but was willing to lower the price on... More

We were apprehensive about our stay at the establishment after reading the reviews but with everywhere else fully booked we decided to take a chance, we were a party of 3 couples. When we arrived we found that the previous occupants had left with the key to the room, as the family room was not booked we were given this... More

We stayed for one night and chose this hotel due to price, location and it had breakfast included. We didn't want to stay in the walls as we wanted some exercise so chose this one due to it being 15-20 minutes walk away from the centre. It was a straight road and was easy to get back into the centre.... More

We've stayed at many B &B's throughout our 27 years of marriage but we can honestly say we've never been treated so badly as by the person at the Clifton Bridge guest house. As we knew we would be unable to check in between 2 & 5 pm I rang them to specially ask if it would be ok to... More
