I stayed here between Christmas and New Year. The owners were welcoming the rooms comfortable and the cask ale top shelf. the full cooked breakfast is a must. Only a few minutes walk into town. Would definitely stay again whe back in the UK

One of the cheapest hotels available during the first weekend of December- a very busy time in York due to the Christmas Markets, i was tempted by the excellent reviews. An excellent location, just a couple of minutes walk and you're smack bang in the centre of York. The room rate was very good and the staff were friendly and... More

Stayed two nights - excellent for cleanliness, service, location. Comfortable bed. Lovely walks by the misty river. Hosts Dan and Racheal couldn't have been more welcoming. Historic building with original features such as decorative ceiling roses and original doors and windows. Good Italian food in restaurant. Easy access to York. We will definitely come back.

We stayed here for two nights for a wedding in York. We booked the four poster room which was beautiful. Was a bit worried having seen the stories of the ghost who we now know is called George, but we had no bother from him at all. The pub was really nice with a good selection of real ales. The...
