Spent a weekend in York and booked at The Old Grey Mare. Its basically a pub with B and B. Arrived at 8pm and shown up to our room. The room itself was clean but basic. Had a meal down in the indian restaurant which was superb. After a very long day driving from Lincoln to Liverpool to drop of... More

My wife and I decided after a day trip to York to stay over so we could go out on the night and have some fun. I went online and this seemed a bargain and located in a nice area. However upon arrival we went into the bar and it was full of drunken locals. A man at the bar... More

After a family member booked us here I read reviews and worried it would be a dump, but I shouldn't have worried. It was a casual place in an old building, so we checked in with the bartender at the pub downstairs, the floors creaked a bit, for sure it was not a fancy place. But it was charming, convenient,...

Called in on a Saturday evening at The Old Grey Mare, York. While staying the weekend at the Youth Hostel YHA York Clifton. The pub is well located, a short walk from the Youth Hostel and on the way into the City Centre via Bootham Bar. It is the natural choice if you don’t want to walk the twenty minute... More

We arrived early for a trip to york races, at 09.30 we were not expecting to be checked in as rooms were not vacated by previous guests until 10-10.30am. We were greeted by the staff who were very pleasant and welcoming, who said a room had vacated but wasn't cleaned but that i could use it to get changed into... More

Stopped here for a 2 night weekend break looking for somewhere within walking distance to town and this was the only good point for the place. I don't like doing bad reviews as always try to find the positives however it was a struggle here. The outside looks reasonable but this illusion changed once inside. We accidentally came through the... More

We were family of five. We paid for one night 200 pounds for this ugly room with one bathroom for all and broken beds. I don't recommend to anyone to book in that hotel. The hotel management was rude. They kept knocking the door before the check out time to leave the room. Breakfast was not good as well.

On the hottest day of the year we were desperate for somewhere to get a drink and a bite to eat and eventually settled on here. Despite advertising itself as an 'Indian restaurant' all that was available for lunch was toasties. We we hungry so agreed and ordered two as well as soft drinks. We were informed AFTER ordering that... More

Excellent value for money, really friendly staff. We were a hen party and they couldn't do enough to help us! Was ideal for us being in a pub. Definitely worth what we paid! clean comfy beds, clean rooms and clean shower room. Honestly have no idea what people found to moan about! Will definitely be returning!!
