We arrived on Friday night with so many bags we couldn't carry them all. The staff and Julie came out to the car to help us bring everything in. It was our wedding on Saturday so it was my wedding dress, suit for my husband-to-be plus all my accessories! Our room was very comfortable and we had a good night's sleep before the big day. The reception was excellent and our guests enjoyed the venue and extremely tasty food. We would not hesitate in staying at this hotel again. Thanks very much to Julie and Staff for such a memorable stay.

Very friendly staff made the stay even more enjoyable. Ideal location for exploring York's main attractions. Parking is limited but not a problem as York is a place easily explored on foot.

Hi folks. Victor Meldrew's grumpy brother here. But no complaints about the Coach House Hotel. If you want something different then this is it. It doesn't feel like a hotel but more like meeting up with some members of your long lost family. My wife and I arrived to coffee and cakes and a good natter with the quirky but charming propietor Julie and some of her staff. The place is spotless, the staff make you feel valued and wanted and you can spit from the Coach House to the city centre and all the visitor attractions. We had Christine's Thai curry for dinner. Wow!! Good food. Good folks. Good feelings. Oh. And a good night's visit to the land of nod in the amazingly comfortable bed. Thanks Julie and co - we loved it.

The Coach hotel York was a wonderful friendly hotel the room was clean and very comfortable, the staff were brilliant, friendly and helpful, Dining at the Hotel was excellent value for money, and the breakfast was also value for money, you are only a few minutes walk from York city canter and a short walk to the museum grounds, this hotel is top of our "must return" list and we will definitely be staying there again, a plus note for me being disabled is that there is a Mobility scooter available if one needs one.

It took me a long time on the internet to unearth a small hotel hotel in York that matched my criteria and I am glad to say the Coach House delivered on all fronts plus some. Easy walking distance of all attractions, bars and restaurants. Free wifi and parking. Cosy bar with real ale and like minded residents to chat with. Good food (only breakfast taken) and most important a team of very friendly helpful staff who treat you as a person not a statistic. It's not cheap but is fair value for what you get in this central York location. The rooms are small (but comfortable and well fitted out) and the floorboards creek but this is part of the hotel's character. One weekend is not long enough to enjoy York or the Coach house so we will return to both.

Room Tip: A superior room will give you a bit more room and a lovely view of the Minster.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in this 'jewel in the crown' of York. I can honestly say that this is now at the top of my list of cosy, super clean, comfortable and welcoming hotels I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. Upon arrival we were shown to our room (room 8) which was overlooking the Minster and within feet of the old city walls. The room was not only absolutely immaculate it was beautiful and the bed not only looked fabulous with its superb top of the range bedding but was the most comfortable we have slept in. The bath was huge with a power shower above. The towels were huge and fluffy. On the dresser was a very nice complimentary bottle of wine and some yummy chocolate brownies. The staff were amazing and we cannot praise them highly enough, nothing was to much trouble for them. Lela on reception even lent her laptop to me as mine was not working. Christine prepared superb true homecooked meals for us. Breakfast was superb, completely spoilt for choice. Complimentary fresh coffee and cakes all afternoon. After a busy day in York it was just like coming home. If you are looking for a unique blend of friendly home comfort and high standards then quite honestly I would look no further, thank you to Julie and all of her wonderful staff.

Room Tip: Room number 8 has the most stunning view of the Minster
