My experience with this hotel has been terrible! i was due to attend the hotel in December, but unfortunately it was during the time of mass flooding in the area. As a lot of the city was underwater, i rang the hotel consecutively ( from 2 days before to on the day) to ensure that the hotel was still assessable.... More

Very reasonably priced hotel located 10 minutes walk from York centre with good regular (every 10 minutes) bus service to centre and train station. Rooms are clean and seem to be recently updated. 4 poster bed is interesting. Quite warm and spacious rooms. If you are a light sleeper suggest getting a room away from the road. Also have single...

We stayed in this hotel in the small double bedroom for 2 nights in December. Decor of the room wasn't exciting, sort of overage. Shower room was clean and modern. We found Fulfod Rd is very busy from early morning, bare it in mind if you light sleeper. Breakfast was not bad at all and all staff were polite and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was great. Dan the owner was a real gent and the room,(4 poster) and the breakfasts and dinner food was fantastic. Not to mention the excellent range of cask ales. Well worth a stay.

Great value for money. We always find parking an issue when we stop overnight in York, no problems here. Not the most luxurious accommodation, but at the price you couldn't go wrong. Just a short walk into the centre and major attractions. Would definitely use this place again.

We stayed at the Lighthorseman due to its close proximity to the town centre, the on site parking, and the price at £55 the night in the small double room. We arrived at 4pm which was good timing as the pub/hotel opens at 4. The room we stayed in felt clean and comfy and well stocked with teas, coffees and... More

Very good value for money and the staff were very friendly. Our room was very clean and cosy. Situated in a good place just on the edge of town away from the hustle and bustle but only a 10 minute walk into the centre. All in all a great place to stay for a short break!

Stayed here with my girlfriend for 2 nights. This place has some big positives, but it has some negative points too. First the positives; Excellent value for money, £60 per night for a double room within 5 minutes walk of York city walls; plus free parking; you wont find many good ones at this price. Its clean(ish) and tidy. We... More

Friendly helpful staff, good ales and excellent food so what's not to like!! OK the noise from the road during the night could be irritating but was expected due to the location! Good parking facilities and lovely garden. Somewhere I could relax, be myself and sort out the 'family business' I was in York to attend to! Thanks to all... More

Room was fine - twin, second bed squeezed into small space and against a radiator under window; one window painted shut, second window could be opened. Ensuite was large and had full size bath, which was a treat. Tired, but meticulously clean. Arrived on a Wednesday - pub closed till 4pm that I only realised on arrival. I was slightly... More
