Minster Walk Accommodation
Ranked #20 of 194 York B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Two night stay over the Bank Holiday weekend with friends. Minster view room was not spacious but clean and comfortable. Drawer space for clothing was pretty non-existent,but for a 2 night stay was not too important. No air conditioning so kept the windows open during the night - vehicle noise from the road outside together with drunken revellers passing by did not aid a good night's sleep. Breakfast was plentiful and of good quality. The dinner menu was adequate and what you might expect from a small hotel. Bar prices were a bit on the steep side but again, you are in the centre of York. Car parking was adequate but had to be vacated by 10.30 on the day of checking out, entailing a charge exceeding £10 in the nearby Pay & Display car park. The saving grace was the friendliness and hospitality of the owner and staff.

Location is fantastic for sight seeing in York. Very welcoming staff. We had the family room which was two rooms each with a double and a single bed and two bathrooms. Spotlessly clean. Benefits from car park. Would recommend this to couples, friends and families for a lovely comfortable stay in a lovely B&B.

Recently returned from a wonderful two night stay here..... right from the outset we were greeted with a very warm welcome and ALL the staff were very helpful during our stay. The rooms are very clean,the freshly home made complimentary biscuits were a nice touch too!
The location is superb with only a short walk into York city centre, with a nice slice of home made cake awaiting us upon return in the afternoon was a treat.
As for the breakfast.....FANTASTIC!! Plenty of fruit juices, fresh fruit, tea and coffee and the best full English I have had for years!! All freshly cooked to order- have as much or as little as you like!!
All in all a very enjoyable time in York and a wonderful time at the Coach House....our thanks to Julie and ALL her staff!!

Dear AR from Chester, Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review. You also live in a beautiful walled City which is similar in some ways to York. It was a pleasure to accommodate you and I will make sure the girls read your review.
Kindest regards,
Julie

This quaint, 400-year-old inn with a warm and friendly staff is a great, reasonably priced B&B in the center of York. From here it is an easy walk to Yorkminster Cathedral and the many museums and restaurants. Highly recommend the free, volunteer-led walking tour of York, which meets not more than two city blocks from the Coach House. Classic English breakfast with many choices is included and personally prepared each morning. Staff member Caroline was particularly friendly and helpful. Tea and homemade cake are complimentary every afternoon!
