“Friendliest place we have ever stayed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Stayed for three nights to explore York. So close to main attractions that we left the car and walked everywhere.
Really friendly staff and well looked after by Caroline, with her lovely cakes.
Breakfast was top notch and freshly cooked and served at table , better than the help yourself over stewed fried breakfasts served in many hotels.
We would highly recommend this hotel, but we shouldn't really as we might not be able to get a room next time!

We arrived early just to check the location and park the car in the free parking area. The staff suggested we sit down and have a cup of tea and cake before sightseeing. This was a good start. In the afternoon we checked into the room.
The location is excellent with the wall and Minster visible from our room. A wonderful room with great bed. All clean and full of Ye Olde charm.
Later in the evening we enjoyed drinks with other customers, next morning breakfast was one of the best encountered on our travels.
Christine is an excellent manager who made us feel so welcome along with all the other staff. We bumped into Julie (the owner) who was also friendly making this an overall wonderful stay.
Highly recommended to anyone staying in York.

Room Tip: Make sure you have the tea and cake.

This hotel was a fantastic find and is perfectly located in York. We stayed twice in the past week as part of our wedding celebrations and we were made very welcome by all the staff. Everything from the brownies we had when we checked in to the breakfast we had just before we checked out was lovely. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was nice and quiet. All I need now is an excuse to return!
Thank you all for making it such a perfect stay.

Room Tip: Room 8 had a lovely big bath and a Minster view, family members stayed in rooms 9, 13 and 6 and all...

Lovely little hotel in the heart of York. Excellent location for exploring the city. Free parking and wifi are a huge bonus. Breakfast was delicious and the homemade brownies in the room were amazing!!!! The only downside was that the floorboards in the room above were very noisy - bring earplugs.

Dear Raechel,

Thank you for your kind words- we are pleased your stay was a good one.
We are having extra sound proofing put under the floor boards in January so hopefully squeaky floor boards will soon be a thing of the past.

We hope we can welcome you back in the future.

Kind Regards

The three ladies who run it go out of their way to make you feel at home. This includes a lovely, included breakfast, free fresh cake in the lounge all afternoon and the ability to order dinner for the time of your choosing, in the dining room or delivered to your room. The rooms are small, but very airy and comfortable. Located next to the museum gardens and next to the city wall, it was a quick walk to all sites within the city. The internet worked, but was a bit spotty. Even managed to get a recipe from Christine.

I have to be honest I was a little apprehensive as this as close to a pub and one or two of the reviews made me a bit iffy at staying here. But as it was close to where my daughter was getting married it was the perfect location for my disabled mother who couldn't walk far.

When we arrived we were warmly greeted and the staff were very attentive, chatting to us and joking with us. The staff went out of their way, even making a special meal for my mum in law! Nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were very pretty and spotlessly clean, I loved the little touches that only a woman would think of, especially in the ladies toilets.

We had full English for breakfast, this was piping hot, and not a spot of grease, again the staff went out of their way to make us welcome. The day after the wedding at breakfast all the staff asked about how the wedding had gone, which was very kind of them, and yet again a great breakfast!.

I know I mentioned the pub.. well I don't think anyone should worry as I couldn't hear anything, as I slept like a baby, in a very comfortable bed! with a lovely mattress topper on it!

Visited Coach House again on 24th July 2014 now in our 17th year visiting, I think the fact we have come back so often says how superb this hotel is, extremely friendly and welcoming staff, superb accomodation, great food. This hotel owed by Julie and run by Lela supported by great staff continues to surpass our expectations. Well done everyone, see you next time and thanks again for our home from home.
