A wonderful place to stay. Only a 5 minute walk to the centre of York. The breakfast was excellent with local sourced ingredients. The Italian restaurant is also excellent. The food was lovely and very competitive prices. We had a lovely short break in a very friendly and well run bed and breakfast.

We stayed four nights in May. Beautiful old building with characteristic rooms. Comfortable bed with good mattress and very clean bathroom. Easy access to York along the river (5 min walk). The breakfast was very good and plentiful. The restaurant served lovely Italian dishes by an excellent Italian chef. We had a very enjoyable stay and recommend the Lighthorseman highly.

Stayed at this venue after wondering if we'd done the right thing by reading previous reviews but no worries - we couldn't fault it. The room, bed and bathroom clean and comfy. The staff very helpful and friendly. The food absolutely fabulous, both breakfast and the 2 evening meals we took there. It had its own free car park and... More

me and my partner stayed for my birthday.the staff were really pleasant and the rooms were really nice and well set out. A little noisy at night but that was to be expected. It was definately worth the money and may return again in the summer

Arrived around midday. Check-in wasn't officially until 4pm but we were allowed to check in and we're taken to our room. Often for breakfast for the morning after. Well worth the money. Set us up for the day. One thing to mention is that it IS a pub and the night we stayed must have been pool tournament night. Could... More

There is a nice garden area which is just off the dining room and must be very nice in the summer. It is an easy walk along the river into town with a... More

Booked for my birthday in November, friendly and easy checkin, were a bit disappointed that work was being carried out and it was surrounded by scaffolding. That being said there was no sign of any workman over the weekend. Staff friendly, room was fine. It's a bit of a walk along the riverside into York, but weather was ok so... More
