Brilliantly located in the heart of the City, ultra friendly staff and very attentive, free parking a great bonus. Room was a little small but comfortable, nice bar and lovely breakfast experience. Overall a really good hotel and fantastic for a weekend break, good vfm. Would happily stay there again and recommend it to others.

We had a wonderful time at the Coach House Hotel. It's close to the city centre, and we were made a fuss of. We had a bottle of wine left in our room for us on arrival, there were mince pies and mulled wine each afternoon (it was near Christmas) and the restaurant food was so good, we ate there each night of our stay. The room itself was cosy, and the decor is old-fashioned without being tired.

Dear Lighthousekeep I am relieved that you consider old doesn't necessarily mean tired, the girls and I are all "ripe in years" but all the better for it!!!
Thank you very much for taking the time to respond and we really do appreciate good reviews, when people have a city break its something to look forward to and we do really care that you are comfortable here.
Kind Regards,
Julie

My husband and i stayed in March 2014 for 1 night, we booked on the recommendation of a family member. have to say we weren't dissapointed at all. We arrived earlier than the specified check in time but as our room was unoccupied they allowed us to check in allowing us to make the more of our day, the staff were so friendly and helpful, we were attended to and shown to our room by a member of staff on maternity leave just popped in for a cuppa. the young lady could clearly see the staff on duty were all rushing about tending to other matters and rather than leave us standing she stepped up and checked us in (now thats dedication).
The hotel itself was cosy and spotless and with complimentry tea, coffee and cake this was my kinda place. The rooms spotlessly clean with all the ammenities and a great view of the Minster with the added touch of complimentary hand made brownies and as for comfort the bed was amazing.
The hotel at night was so quiet we actually thought the hotel was empty, it wasn't until breakfast the next morning we realsied just how busy it was.
The breakfast was lovely, pleantiful and very relaxed. the staff were super efficiant and the cooked breakfast arrived very quickly.
I only wish we could have stayed longer...........

Just back from a 3 night stay at this lovely little hotel. Room was clean, staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was promptly served and delicious.

Excellent location just a 10 minute walk from the city center & train station, also situated on a quiet side street with little passing traffic.

Finally the little touches such as the bag of chocolate brownies & the complimentary tea/coffee & cake served daily in the lounge area made this stay extra special.

Will definitely be going back :)

Room Tip: Rooms at back of hotel will no/very little traffic noise so may be slightly better than rooms facing...

Thank you James for taking the time to write a lovely review. Yes you are quite right the rooms at the rear of the hotel are very quiet (considering we are very central) however because we are down a side road the front is quiet at night. Any how the main thing is you had a good time here which is very important to us.
Kind regards,

Booked this over the internet, without prior knowledge. Fantastic location and parking may be small, but this is free city centre parking. City walls over the road, and only 10 mins walk from all the main attractions. Staff were very friendly and helpful, felt very much like a family run business.
Room was excellent, with modern shower room/wc and all drink making facilities provided although not really needed as coffee on constant supply downstairs in the lounge. Evening meals very good if you don't want to go out to the hundreds of eateries in the city and breakfast choice more than enough to set you up for a busy day, served promptly and with a smile. Definitely worth a return visit.

My husband and I went to the Coach House for one night, we had booked and paid by credit card days in advance over the phone. We arrived and the lady on reception could not find any sign of our booking at all. It was only when I repeated the phone conversation she remembered it but could not explain why we were not on their system as we stood there for over 15mins listening to her panic. The hotel was fully booked the propeitor stepped in to assist and offered us a flat to use about a 5 min walk away. We accepted although disappointed. The flat was a 2 bedroomed with a kitchen and bathroom it was nice but we couldnt help but feel let down as we were all alone and had none the the B&B comforts. We also had to go back to the B&B for breakfast which we found a little inconvenient. Breakfast was lovely and the owner was friendly but seems she may have to look at her staffing.

Hi Sammywhizz, thank you for your review, I am now going to eat a whole bag of mini chocolate eggs with the hope that the resulting sugar surge will make me feel less stressed.

This was our first time at The Coach House Hotel and what a find. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, with tea or coffee and home made cake available all afternoon. The room was very well equipped with spotless bedding and towels, and plenty of tea and coffee provided and home made chocolate brownies! The bedrooms are all individual and quirky. Breakfast is superb with plenty of choice. The staff are very helpful with suggestions of places to visit and places to eat. We had a great time and cannot wait to visit again.
