About ten minutes walk from York station! Lovely pub with nice clean rooms, comfortable bed and decent shower. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was outstanding. We're planning a longer trip to York, as we didn't give ourselves enough time, and would definitely stay there again. Good price too, and a very good pint in the bar.

Booked through laterooms.com who failed to notify them that there were two guests, so whilst Libby split the double bed into two singles, Dave supplied a...

We stayed here to break our journey from Bridington to Leeds/Bradford Airport, so it was an overnight stay. You couldn't pick a better location in York for the price! Plus free parking, which is actual Gold - Dust in York!! Spoken as an ex York resident - We were initially shown into a pretty little double room on the front...

Do not visit this establishment, we were provided with a poorly maintained room which had a smell of sewage in the bathroom, black mould, no hot water damp and dirt patches,broken shower screen,broken toilet seat. We stayed one night, that was enough! We also had to endure the offensive, threatening behaviour of a member of staff that said his wife...
