“Great Location - Recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2009

We highly enjoyed our 2 night stay at the White Horse and would certainly recommend it to friends and family. The hotel is located 50 metres from the city wall and very close to York Minster. Drop off / pick up points for tour buses and walking tours are 20 metres away.

The Rooms look to have been renovated in the last couple of years, are very well presented and very spacious for this type of accommodation. Staff were very friendly, allowing us to check in early and leave our bags after check out. The pub downstairs is great with a good mix of customers and is cheap by York standards. The full english breakfast was great.

We would certainly stay again without any hesitation!

I really enjoyed our stay at the White Horse. The Landlord, his partner and the staff made us feel really welcome and were most helpful and plesant in our two night stay.

The room was clean, tidy and comfortable and the full English breakfast very nice.

While we were there I enjoyed the choice of cask beers available, Bomber and Highwayman. Both kept in prime condition.

The pub is located 2 minutes from the town centre which was handy for a wide choice of resturants and bars.

In all our stay in York was made most enjoyable by the Landlord and staff of the White Horse and we plan to visit again in the summer.

The White Horse Pub, is in a good location in York, a minutes walk from the Minster, and the room we had was quite well furnished and comfortable ( apart from the first night when the heating was broken and no-one had the decency to tell us, it was about -2 degrees outside!!!). The bathroom was really well decorated, with an excellent shower.
We had a short stay, and there were a few problems apart from the heating episode.

Firstly, the room was not cleaned at all during the stay.
Second- the noise from the street is almost unbearable during the morning rush hour.
third- the breakfast isnt great, although it's ok.

With that said, the price is very good, £27.50pppn, (the pub across the road charge £37.50pppn)and i suppose you get what you pay for, but with just a little more effort this the experience would have been so much better.

Would we stay again? - Yes, even with the problems, the location and price make it a decent stop over if you can put up with the small problems.
