I've visited the pub quite a few times and love the atmosphere of the place so decided to choose this hotel for a romantic weekend away. We had room 11 in the courtyard and was a little worried after reading other reviews regarding noise from drinkers outside but we didn't hear anything and had a really good nights sleep. Our room was absolutely stunning, beautifully presented, with a comfortable bed and large bathroom. Breakfast was really good too, if a little strange, as you eat by candlelight but it all adds to the experience! The location is perfect as you are in the centre of York right next to the minster so everything is within walking distance. One thing to watch out for if you are driving to the hotel - Lendal bridge is closed between 10.30am and 5pm. We struggled to find an alternative route at first and had to call the hotel for directions. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back.
