The Nags Head York
Ranked #104 of 195 York B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Used to come to the Nags a lot, but stopped a while ago when it started to go downhill.

Heard good things about new managers so we gave it another go. Massive difference. Great welcome, food wonderful, and the place was CLEAN.

Definitely be back.

We returned for a weekend in York after a fantastic experience at The Nags Head back in August. The couple managing the place were amazing, they catered to our need, involved us in every possible way and it was clear to see they were loved by the locals.
The one thing this place is missing is them, a good management team. Will go back again, if they do!

Stayed here with friends for a December visit.

Lovely friendly staff, 10 minute walk to the centre and comfortable rooms. Landlord was happy for us to leave our car all day after we had checked out which was kind of him.

Would definitely stay here again.

We searched online for accomodation in York as we planned to have a couple of days visiting the many attactions in York, We gave the Nags Head a quick phone call to see if they had a twin and a double room as the online booking showed double and family room only available, a very pleasant young man explained that the family room would be a the same cost as a twin room, as a result the rooms were booked, we arrived lunch time on the first booked day and again where greeted by a friendly face who showed us the rooms. One room was in the process of being serviced which was not a problem for us, so we parked the car and walked into York centre a 20 minute walk. On our return we firstly had a couple of drinks in the bar, we were made to feel at home and the landlord "Jim" made a point of coming to see us to apologise for the room not being ready when we first arrived. Access to the rooms is via a steel staircase/ fire exit at the rear of the hotel, the now serviced rooms were clean, tidy and decorated to a reasonable standard, and warm. with all the usual items .
We ate in the hotel on both nights and found the food to be excellent ordering from a wide number of choices off the bar menu, and taking advantage of talking to the chef and ordering his recommendations. The breakfest each morning was also excellant served with a plentiful supply of tea and coffee.
For us at £35 pppn the Nags Head is great value with a touch of character and charm .
The only negative comment is that Room 5 suffers from noise of a cooling fan cutting in and out during the night it's not loud but can be heard during the silence of the night.

just stayed one night to see robyn hitchcock at the duchess. Room small and laid out in a strange manner. single beds in an L-shape so i was able to gaze at the soles of my partner's feet during the night.

Staff pleasant and breakfast splendid inc good black pudding.

Not the place for people who retire early as there was a band on Saturday night; still if you can't beat em, stay in the bar with em.

Hi this was a really nice B & B close to the town clean rooms and nice food, we tried to get a cab into town and the owner Jim took us, really nice guy and good service. He recommended places to visit and where to eat. All in all the Nags Head is worth a visit :))))))))
