Lovely place to stay. The room we were staying in was very clean and very spacious. Good breakfast and the evening meal was great. The location was excellent, only a 10 minute walk into York would definitely stay there again.

Booked for 3 nights for a short 25th anniversary break. Price for 3 nights was quite low so wasn't expecting much! How surprised were we? The rooms are above the pub but there is no noise to be heard when in your room. The room was advertised as a king sized en-suite and it didn't disappoint. With a lovely, comfortable... More

Only 10 minutes walk from the city centre, the Lighthorseman is a lovely place to stay. The rooms are really nice with an extremely comfy bed and quality bedding. The breakfast is varied, delicious and filling and the happy hour deal with the restaurant in the evening was a bargain. £5 for any pizza or pasta.....and they were massive portions,... More

This visit, we were checked in by one of the bar staff as the owners were away. She showed us to our room and explained the keys etc.. Our room was comfortable and in... More

Lovely little old pub. Some good ales on the bar and free complimentary brews on check in. Location is perfect for a stroll down the river and into York. (5mins) Rooms are a little dated but they are clean, spacious safe an quiet considering your above a pub. Everyone really friendly.. York is littered with similar b&bs but this would... More

The GPS had us completely lost as it had the Lighthorsemen listed as another address but after asking a Policeman we finally got there. Staff are friendly and the room was a fantastic size. Only about a 10 minute walk from town centre so great location. I would recommend a notice advising how to operate shower especially for those who... More

Great place to stay. Spacious room. Comfy bed. Very warm welcome from the landlady. Breakfast was available at a small charge. However we chose to eat in town. 5 min walk along the river takes you into the heart of York. Highly recommended. 5*****

We booked into this impressive building on the Monday,after Le Grand Depart. York was still buzzing, yellow bikes every where. Got out of York train station, we walked towards Fulford Road. It took no more than ten minutes to get there. It's a fabulous old building, and credit to Dan and Racheal Murphy, who were perfect hosts. We booked a... More

Worried if we could find it, but no problem. Very nice room, lovely pub with a wonderful garden. Such a short walk in to the city. The owners and the staff were wonderful, great breakfast and nice beer. Good Yorkshire Welcome, thank you.
