We searched online for accomodation in York as we planned to have a couple of days visiting the many attactions in York, We gave the Nags Head a quick phone call to see if they had a twin and a double room as the online booking showed double and family room only available, a very pleasant young man explained that the family room would be a the same cost as a twin room, as a result the rooms were booked, we arrived lunch time on the first booked day and again where greeted by a friendly face who showed us the rooms. One room was in the process of being serviced which was not a problem for us, so we parked the car and walked into York centre a 20 minute walk. On our return we firstly had a couple of drinks in the bar, we were made to feel at home and the landlord "Jim" made a point of coming to see us to apologise for the room not being ready when we first arrived. Access to the rooms is via a steel staircase/ fire exit at the rear of the hotel, the now serviced rooms were clean, tidy and decorated to a reasonable standard, and warm. with all the usual items .
We ate in the hotel on both nights and found the food to be excellent ordering from a wide number of choices off the bar menu, and taking advantage of talking to the chef and ordering his recommendations. The breakfest each morning was also excellant served with a plentiful supply of tea and coffee.
For us at £35 pppn the Nags Head is great value with a touch of character and charm .
The only negative comment is that Room 5 suffers from noise of a cooling fan cutting in and out during the night it's not loud but can be heard during the silence of the night.
