Me and my boyfriend stayed here for our 2 year anniversary March 2013. We walked there from the train station and it was an accessible location. A little far but only a 10-15 minute walk. I won't lie, I was a little apprehensive about the pub downstairs with noise and all...but it was great! The rooms and bathroom were very... More

Elegant facility, clean rooms, quiet area. The staff is lovely, young, helpful. The position in not excellent but in ten minutes walk you can get the city center and other places. Near the hotel there's a Sainsbury supermarket and many restaurants for dinner or breakfast. Hot water in showers, good breakfast. Recommended.

A very pleasant surprise. I booked this hotel on the basis that it was a decent rate and it had parking (at a premium in York). The rooms, above a pub, were perfect - clean, had all amenities including an iPod dock, and a very comfortable 6 foot bed. Although on a main road and a room above the bar,... More

The room was very clean... More

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 B&B is above a pub, but that's no problem at all. Its a lovely old building with lots of original features. Bar downstairs is good. 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
