Visited this hotel in December with a group of friends for my birthday, we had a fantastic time and couldn't of booked a better hotel! The manager was really helpful and friendly, and previous to the stay I had a phone call with the manager regarding our trip, and he was really helpful and accommodating. The room was really really... More

Five adult guests arriving from out of town, with an overnight booking, in York to attend a wedding that day were refused entry, denied accommodation & ordered to leave by the proprietor. This man is a complete & utter disgrace, a complete embarrassment to the hospitality & service industry. He is a disreputable, despicable and disgusting apology for a hotel... More

We had a very similar experience to Corinne C. The owner is rude, aggressive and should, in no way be connected to the service industry. I can only agree with their review and advise people to stay away.

Originally booked for three people to stay here as we were attending a wedding on December 5th this year. We made the booking in early January to avoid any problems. A little later, two more people asked to join our party. I rang and asked if they could update the booking to 5. We needed two doubles and a single.... More

Like many others I think, my friends and I felt alarmed by the number of negative reviews about the attitude and behaviour of the owner/manager. Certainly checking in seemed a bit rough and ready; our booking and the price quoted were challenged and we had to be fairly clear about our requests. We were however treated very well, offered a...

Hotel was clean, breakfast was nice and rooms satisfactory however we did experience quite a lot of trouble with checking in and being allocated rooms. I stayed there for my hen do with mostly family members and some friends, we all booked separately as most people didn't know each other but I did send an email in advance listing all... More

Stayed here recently and although the guest house is nice looking , with good location and clean rooms, I found the attitude of the owner very poor. He was abrupt with us when signing in and I actually saw him shout at a guest with young children who arrived to check in. Did not feel welcome . Plenty of other... More

We stayed this weekend, having stayed previously, and had a great time. Arthur from the hotel was very welcoming, he couldn't have done more to make our stay any better. Breakfast in the morning was really good, and the selection of cereals was excellent. We opted for a cooked full English and was just the right amount without being over... More

We were late arriving in York and couldn't check in as had tight schedule for birthday celebrations. Rang and there was no problems on what time we arrived, got there at midnight after a... More
