The location is absolutely amazing I think I genuinely could have hit the Minster with a well thrown stone. 5 mins (if that) walk from interesting shops, good restaurants, lively bars, quiet pubs and the city wall. We stayed for 2 nights and although we didn't eat here it wasn't from choice we tried but they were fully booked on... More

me and my friend recently had a meal in the restaurant. Booking a reservation was fast and easy. The atmosphere is brilliant with really friendly helpful staff, who actually interact with you and great food. I normally can't finish any meal (I get bored easy) let alone have room for a desert but the food was gorgeous I finished both... More

This is a beautiful hotel right next door to the Minster. Our room had amazing views of the Minster. Service was good, staff were very polite, happy and helpful. There are many boring run of the mill hotels in York, this one stands head and shoulders above the rest. Plus, very very very romantic. Will definitely be staying again.

The hotel/pub/restaurant is full of character; wonky floors and doors, atmospheric decor and friendly, helpful staff. However, because of the pub downstairs, it's noisy until after 11PM, so it's not the kind of place to go if you're looking for an early night. Or a lie-in. We stayed in room 5 on the first floor, which turned out to be... More

Thankyou for your review. I am dissapointed you were not totally happy with the size of your room. However the other rooms are all priced differently and accordingly to be competative with our competition. We would certainly hope you would come and join us again, the rooms to the front of the building have spectacular views of the minster. Hope... More

This is a lovely place to stay when visitng York, to really get a taste of the "olde world charm" York is so renowned for. The building is full of character, with small dimly lit rooms downstairs in the bar and restaurant and the ambience from the many candles used even during breakfast simply add to that fact. Some may... More

We stayed in room 10 which was the four poster room and has a bathroom with a shower and roll top bath. This cost us £99 for the night including breakfast and I think... More

Thankyou for taking the time to leave us a review. Room 5 is the smallest room at the inn, maybe next time we could tempt you with one of our large four poster rooms with the best view of the minster in town. I hope that this was not and issue that would stop you returning to us in the... More
