Pros:
-Great location (could see part of the York walls from our window).
-Very close to town (easy walk).

Cons:
-Tough to get around in the room (only 2-3 feet on both sides of the bed).
-The lounge area was very old fashioned and drinks were pricey (can of Guinness more than draught at a pub).

Thankyou for your review, yes we are old, infact we are 17century, beams, creaky floor boards, every room different, some small some large. We are also only 300 yds from York Minster which is medieval. However we do have modern bathrooms and extremely comfortable beds.
Kind regards,
Julie

We stayed here for one night and loved it. Staff friendly and helpful (especially the young lady who greeted us at reception). We had a lovely room with a view of the Minster. Had a great nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. Very good location, short walk to shops, restaurants and sights etc. We will be visiting York in the near future and will definitely book the Coach House.

Ahhh...... Geri, thank you for your review.Sometimes I really don't want to come to work, especially when the mornings are dark, then I read a nice review and I am reminded about why I have worked in the hospitality industry for 35 years. I really love it when people have a good holiday and return home with happy memories.

If we go to York again, I will definitely look to stay here first. I like the feel of the place. The staff were very nice and the place was welcoming, clean, and cozy.

This is an old coaching inn - so you will get creaky floors and funny little hallways. Which are two things I like about old buildings. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable - a little softer than I usually like, but not too soft so I slept really well. Feather pillow was nice too.

Staff was helpful and professional. Great breakfasts too. Price was good. Parking is a bit tight, a bit like a puzzle game, but no cars were injured while we were there.

The only negative thing I'd have to say is that the water pressure in the shower just didn't quite measure up. I love a good strong stream of hot water, so I feel clean even when I'm too tired to soap up properly! Other than that, the bathroom was fine - there was steady hot water and a good shower head..

York is quite a touristy city and so picking a place to stay can get tricky. We like quiet areas and were worried about noise. Having the Museum Gardens across the street probably helped with the quietness of the area. One night I heard people walking past, but otherwise it was fairly quiet.

Room Tip: The standard room is small but the size is not uncommon in older "city" establishments, bu...

This is a somewhat old fashioned but comfortable hotel. Our room was very small but more than adequate for a city centre stay. Good to have onsite parking. The daily coffee and excellent home made cakes was a lovely addition, and the breakfasts were very good. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend it as a city centre place to stay.

I've been to some places and there are many that I'd visit again. There were a few that felt so comfortable that I wanted to stay put - The Coach House is one of them. What a great Team of people. Everyone went out of their way to make us welcome. The food for all our meals was excellent. We were ten in all and had a most enjoyable weekend. I have no need to look for anywhere else to stay on my next trip to York - I'll be back.

Room Tip: The top room is a long way up steep stairs so avoid if you're not fully mobile.

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.
