“Very clean and comfortable.”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

My wife and I stayed here for one night . 24/08/14 . We expected the usual pub bed and breakfast ... far from our assumption . The rooms were furnished and decorated to a very high quality . The staff were amazing and the food also . We will definitely return soon . Highly recommended .

The pub had just been beautifully renovated, had a lovely feel. Our room was very comfortable with newly fitted en-suite. The location was brilliant for the centre of York, didn't need to use the car. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. Only one downer was that the weather was so hot we had to have the window wide open so did get a bit of noise during night. But we would definitely stay there again.

I would recommend this B&B over any other location I stayed in York. The facilities are new yet have great character, it is superbly located and very hospitable.
I will defenitely return here on my next visit to Yorkshire!

Very nice hotel, great location. We experienced a lot of noise from next door in the morning as it was an interconnecting room (not by choice) and the water system made a lot of noise which we reported so this has probably been addressed. Breakfast was good. Friendly staff. Enjoyable stay.

The location is good for central York attractions and had just been redecorated on our visit. The twin room was clean and spacious. Decent shower. Comfortable bed. We had great weather and the room was therefore too warm, could have used a mobile fan on this occasion. Decent breakfast, pleasant staff, good value. Would use again for similar occasion.

Nicly renovated pub with a good atmospher, good beer, nice staff and better than average pub food. Well worth a visit particularly on a sunny day in the beer garden. The team are very welcoming and chatty.

We're so glad you liked our refurb, our aim was to keep it as a really good Pub with super rooms and great food.

Looking forward to seeing you back soon.
