The owner Brian was friendly, the other staff were nice, the location was excellent and the breakfast was lovely. Free parking was a big bonus and the room was a good size. If you are a light sleeper be aware that some of the rooms overlook the main road. This isnt the most romantic or fancy place to stay but... More

A very short stroll from York Minster and the centre. Welcoming friendly staff. Extremely good value. It only cost £65 for a twin room including breakfast, so we kept an open mind. Just as well we did. We only booked for one night. The room, in fact the whole hotel was very dated and would have benefitted from a complete... More

A central location but room rates much lower than other apparently similar establishments. What could possibly be wrong? I arrived at this attractive pub, entered and was warmly greeted by Harrison, who was behind the bar. He showed me up to my room and helpfully carried my luggage up for me. My room was clean, well appointed with a nice... More

My friend and I shared the twin attic room, with most stupendous views of the minster. Gillygate house was lovely, with comfortable beds ... Though the sloping ceiling a challenge! Be careful. The stairs are steep too We were made to feel welcome, and the landlord took our cases up and down for us which we appreciated. The breakfast was... More

Simple surroundings with locals at the bar. .. Nice. We had a good dinner of local gillygate steak pie and gravy with lovely veg sides. The landlord was chatty and helpful and we would go here again. We've were unfitness they have refurbished the hotel bedroom areas too. ... so we may consider staying here sometime

Thanks to Ellie for a warm welcome (enjoyed my birthday egg). Staff are super friendly. Location is phenomenal. The decor is tired and we got a special 2 4 1offer which gave us value for money. Breakfast was varied and if you ask for a veggie breakfast ensure you request an egg/s. There is a fexible atmosphere around breakfast. Lovely... More

It's a shame it's so poor because the location is good. The furnishings are shabby and broken. The hot water ran out mid-shower and the bedding was not really adequate. The room was large but it was tired and faintly unpleasant. Noise was a problem, with the place fairly raucous until well past midnight both nights we stayed. Breakfast was... More

My husband booked our room a couple of months in advance and became nervous about our stay when he read the reviews just before we went. However, we really enjoyed our stay. The staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful and always smiling. The bed was very comfortable and clean and we had heaters in the room so that we... More

The place is in need of a refurb which is what it is going to get next year(hopefully new double glazed windows) The new manager was friendly and helpful with us, allowing to park up early and go shopping which was a bonus for us. As long as the bed sheets were clean, it had hot water, a toilet and... More
