I thought I had reviewed this establishment on trip advisor but must have been booking.com site. We stayed August for 3 nights in room 11 which is off courtyard. Lovely big room with huge bathroom, although no bath which didn't matter as shower was fab. Very atmospheric place. Charming and helpful staff. Lad that served our relish breakfast last day... More

Great location, if you don't mind Cathedral bells at 09:00 on a Sunday morning for 2 hours!! All the noise from downstairs bar come up the stairs and keeps you awake, but this did quieten down after midnight. Four poster bedroom (4) wasn't what we were expecting at all!!! Very small room with no drapes or furniture on the four... More

Struggling to find what is delux about our room and why this hotel has been given a 4 star rating. Spacious enough room but no drawers, no shelf space in bathroom, window did not stay open however there is a metal box provided for you to prop between the window and the ledge which does the trick!! TV did not... More

We stayed here for out anniversary and it was lovely! The hotel is very traditional and cosy, the staff were very friendly and our room had a view of the minster. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a taste of old York.

We stayed for one night in one of the courtyard rooms. We loved the room and the place in general. It's very atmospheric and the restaurant is lovely with candles lighting the room. The food was disappointing though- I had fish which was slightly undercooked and lacked seasoning, and my wife had the bellypork with apple & chorizo stew which... More

What an amazing place to stay. So authentic and mysterious with it's many nooks and crannies. Stayed in room 9 which over looked the court yard and had fantastic views of the minster tower. The room was full of period charm and absolutely spotlessly clean. With a big comfy bed. Disappointed not to get to eat in the dining room... More

Stayed in July, awful and at a price. Enterance looked like it hadn't been cleaned since Guy lived there. We were put in room one, which is over the kitchen all you could here and feel continuously was the very loud drone of the industrial extractor fans through the whole room. Very noisy smoking area in the back yard meant... More

Staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. I could not fault the service or the location. However my room must have been the worst room in the building. It was located on the first landing so all traffic went past my door. The room was so narrow that I had to turn sideways and shuffle past the bed to... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Our staff are delighted to hear you found the service impeccable. Due to the age and character of the building, each of our rooms is different with the executive rooms being the smallest doubles, deluxe and four poster - large doubles and the suite being the largest. Room 5... More

We didn't stay at the pub, just had lunch and drinks. It was a great choice and we all really enjoyed our food. It's quite pricey for pub grub but is well worth the extra pennies. I had the pie, the waitress warned me it would take 30 mins to cook but at least I knew it was fresh. It... More

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience at our restaurant. We keep the menu very close to classic British to suit the character of the establishment, but we also like to add a little twist to the dishes just to make them a little different from the usual. The steak pie, however, has remained unchanged for... More
