The room I was in was warm, clean and functional and did not live to the rest of my experience, but reflected in the price. I look forward to...

This was booked as a surprise by my husband for our 36th wedding anniversary. I love history and quirky places so this inn fitted the bill to a tee. Location is excellent along with the food and friendly staff. It is just little things that stopped me rating it as a 5. We had the attic room (12) and do...

Very friendly comfortable pub. Ate lunch on our arrival and breakfast the following morning. all good food, delicious and plenty of it. The pun is just inside the city walls, ideal for sightseeing. The pub is very quirky and in keeping with the lovely city of York.

Nice accomodation, the rooms were very carefully and tastefully decorated and had everything you could need , hair dryer iron and ironing board. Also in the most perfect part of York right under the old walls. I would like to go back in the summer as the garden looked so inviting. Definitely a nice and surprising find .

I took my husband away for a night for a surprise. I chose the hotel mainly for the location which is very central literally a minute from York Minster. I booked via Booking.com and there was no information about parking on the booking. A few days before I phoned to check and was informed there was no parking but could...
