We stayed one night. Location is fine, 10 mins walk to centre of York. However the room was very dated and not ideally clean. Cups were grubby, bathroom not clean. Breakfast was poor, no glasses provided for the juice! no teaspoons! Microwaved eggs! Bar area was lovely, decorated for Halloween, but service very poor!

Stayed two nights, Friday and Saturday. The whole pin was decorated for Halloween and it was brilliant. The staff couldn't help enough and were very friendly and made you feel welcome. The room and ensuite were a good size and clean. The full English was also excellent. We also had dinner on the Saturday which was very nice and not... More

It's a good 15 minute walk from the centre of York, which is good as it keeps the stags and hens away, so the locals can enjoy it in peace. Found the staff to be very freindly, good choice of drinks at average prices and not too much over the top. The locals to the pub were also welcoming. Food... More

Would not recommend this hotel. Old cloths hanging in the hall looked like stuff people had left. Room was very tatty and in need of some decor and removal of cobwebs. Breakfast was very poor and took half an hour and that was just 4 people in the dining room. The fans in the kitchen are left on all night... More
