We stayed in Room 3 for 4 nights during the Jorvik Viking Festival. The Inn has a great location, quiet street at night and a view of York Minster which is just at the street corner. Our room was very warm and a welcoming cosy return on a cold Northern Night. The staff were very helpful and there was no ceremony - you felt like a guest in a home rather than an impersonal hotel. Room 3 has a four poster with 3 huge Georgian windows, wood panelling and a nice walk in wardrobe. Facilities very good and always cleaned well.
We ate twice in the restaurant and felt it was the best value and quality we had during our stay. Our only caution would be that there are street cleaners at about 6am passing the inn which can make a noise. Overall this would be my first choice on a return visit - for atmosphere, ease of location and a great atmosphere.
