My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights and had a really lovely time. We booked via hostelbookers and paid £78 per night for our room, which was a 'deluxe' double. This meant that it had been recently refurbished and was more modern than the other rooms. The king bed was huge and soft and there were really nice touches such as packets of biscuits, tea and hot chocolate and bottles of water. The room was a perfect size for a couple of nights - maybe a bit small if you were there for a week or so! The bathroom was big and spotless. Only problem was that the shower took about 5 minutes to heat up on the morning and didn't have that strong a pressure, but no big deal.
Free wifi with no password needed.
Breakfast was included and we had the full English - a decent size and really tasty. The only problem was that it was only served from 8.30 - 9.30. Understandable that they don't want to be cooking for hours, but maybe a bit of a problem if you want a lie-in or are on a business trip.
Owners were friendly and helpful and you can come and go as you please with the key. The place was about a 15 minute nice walk into York - and I'm a slow walker. Would recommend it and may well return one day!
