Difficult to position a review, as based on price comparison with other hotels in the area, there's little to actually complain about: certainly did not feel strongly enough to mention anything to the staff. Faults were very similar to the other reviews; windows had large draughty gaps in, which considering they were painted shut would benefit from the gaps simply... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed just for one night and we had a great time. The girl that checked us in and showed us to our room was very friendly and helpful. We didn't had dinner but when we came back to the pub, we went into the pool area and stayed there having a couple of drinks because the... More

We booked our weekend away to York very last minute at a very busy time of year, so there wasn't a huge amount of choice left - but we are glad the light horseman was available! The room was clean and spacious, and at the reasonable price we paid, much bigger and nicer than expected!! We had the four poster... More

Stayed here for a weekend to visit son at University. Pleased with room, great location to walk into York and somewhere to park! Good cooked breakfast. Had to turn heating down after first night as room got quite warm.

Good location, staff were lovely and room clean and bright. However, down side for us was the room was cold and constant traffic noise. We'd treated ourselves to the 4 poster room and I appreciate part of the problem was down to age of windows and building overall. We had to bleed the radiators to get them working, something that...

Whilst I knew from making the reservation that the check in time was 4pm, I thought that if the room was ready we might be able to check in a little earlier. Unfortunately I was wrong. We arrived to the pub being completely in the dark and closed. No doorbell to press or anything. I could've phoned perhaps, but nobody... More

The room was very clean with plenty of tea and coffee etc. Only niggle was the shower wasnt very powerful but adequate. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice to select and a fresh cooked English as well.... More

Clean hotel, comfortable quiet room with four poster bed and ensuite. Staff friendly and helpful and bar area warm and welcoming. Nice beer garden and ample parking which we took advantage of for the two days we were there. The only drawback is the check in - it's not till 4pm. Somewhat naively I thought there would be someone there... More

Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Lighthorseman B&B/inn/pub. The owner Dan was very welcoming upon our arrival, giving us a set of keys for all locks necessary and showing us to the room. We stayed in the four post bedroom which was spacious and had plenty of storage space for clothes/jackets etc. The Bathroom... More

After reading many good reviews on Tripadvisor, we booked through Expedia well in advance. 4pm is a late check in, but we were allowed to park our car (phoned before we arrived) and walked into York for the afternoon. We were greeted by a very friendly young lady, who explained the wi-fi, as well as the keys and access via... More
