“Most Enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Stayed for one night over the Easter Weekend. Made to feel very welcome by the owners. Perfect location, only a ten minute walk to the Minster. Room was lovely and clean, everywhere very well decorated. Had a spare heater in the room we could use if it got too cold, but the room was lovely and warm. Breakfast was lovely.
Would recommend to friends and would use again

Stayed for one night in march lovely welcome and lovely owners and only a ten minute walk into York, bus stop right outside with regular service. Stayed In four poster room which looks nice but found the bed really uncomfortable, read a review which Says the rooms were cold?! We had to turn the heating down to barely on as it was Soooo warm and it was freezing outside. Breakfast was beautiful and what lovely people who run it, would go again but not in the same room. Thank you!

Thank you for your kind review. Have noted that you found the bed uncomfy, though others have found it the opposite, everyone has different types of comfort level - will check out the mattress but it would have been useful to know if it was too hard, too soft etc. If there's a next time give the waterbed a try for something different. Glad you were warm and that you found that the room temperature is cotrolled within each room.

Really friendly family run place, great value for money. Would definitely recommend to a friend. Ideally located to the centre of York, was able to walk to centre in 10 minutes. Good choice for breakfast which which was fantastic. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

Greeted with a wonderful smile from a young lady upon arrival, followed by another welcoming smile from owner, everything explained about property and surrounding are, nothing was to much of a problem, fantastic room, superb breakfast and plenty of it , cleanliness of highest degree, four poster bed was comfortable and no noise to worry about, vast array of info on display, bus stop directly outside that went straight into town and railway station, I would definitely recent and return again, well done and thank you for a wonderful experience.

We have stayed here a few times over the last few years and always found it welcoming and cosy, the breakfast is brilliant with a good choice. its about a 15 min walk into city but there is a bus straight outside which is great. I think its room 5 we had and its funny , everytime we go here we get the same room, its at the front and we love it. There is a pub next door also which is handy for a nightcap, but you never hear any noise from it. Hopefully we shall be back soon.

This hotel is the bee knees, comfortable, homely and welcoming. We had room number 3 on the ground floor, it was a twin room which had fluffy bathrobes, a large variety of hot drinks to chose from, hot water bottles, great for chilly feet and a fan heater in the wardrobe if the room isn't warm enough, although we found the room amply warm. Very comfortable, good quality beds with lovely toasty quilts. A well decorated, spacious room with a large ensuite, great!!
The breakfast was brilliant with loads to chose from and the best poached eggs i have ever had, wish i knew his technique! A charming waitress who was very efficient even when the room was busy. You are even allowed to use the dining room in the evening with your own takeaway if you let them know, which is a great bonus, we dined out though at 2 restaurants, an indian called York Tandoori and a ghurka restaurant called the Yak and Yeti, both to be recommended.
It is very close to the centre of york and you could walk easily into york, if you are like us (a bit lazy) there is a bus which stops right outside the hotel and is just £1.20, great value. York is a great place with lots to do and i will be coming back as my son wants to visit york. I won't be looking for anywhere else to stay as i think i have stayed at the best in york, so well done David and your team you are running a great place, 5 stars !!

We stayed here on recommendation and were not disappointed, this is a cosy place and spotless...we really liked it and were made to feel welcome. We had an easy walk into the centre but tended to use the very convenient bus. Thankyou for making us so welcome
