When traveling we look for unique places to stay...and this certainly fit the bill. The Inn is located in the center of town, with a nice pub downstairs, small menu, but great atmosphere, dark with candles lit throughout. Staff was brilliant. One tip...it states parking is available...it is, but is is a good 5 minute walk...so if you have luggage as I did, not a pleasant surprise. Aside from that, the town of York has many winding wonderful streets with plenty of shops and restaurants, as well as some amazing historical sights.
The room had a lot of personality, with a wonderful view of the cathedral. The decor was simple but charming. No temperature control in the room, as it was March this was not a problem, but the summer months may get a bit warm.
A really wonderful overnight stay...in a charming little town.
