Yeah it's not the freshest, or cleanest, or fanciest of places to stay, but it was good enough for us. We were gonna be drinking in the pub downstairs with the York City lads anyway. Just shortened the crawl to bed at the end of the night. And the lasses in the bar were among the better I've seen in...

Wes the new owner did'nt know we were there because he'd just taken over the lease on thurs 6th april. Him and he's family are really...

The pub is situated in an ideal location, only 5 or so minutes walk from many restaurants, and about 10 minutes walk from the city centre! When walking into the pub, me and my partner were shocked by how local it was, and were hoping this did not reflect the room upstairs. After checking in with a friendly member of...

Good beds, plenty of heating. But for 2 nights there were rats in the walls, plain as anything to hear. No cleaning was done, no rubbish removed or beds made, it was seriously dusty and very rundown. The shower cubicle was manky, the spray kept falling off as the bracket was broken, the muncher toilet couldn't cope, there was a...

We stayed here over two nights and was quite impressed with the place. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, the room spacious and warm and the location absolutely fantastic. The decor was a little run down and could perhaps do with renovation but it was clean and cosy with plenty of amenities. My only real gripe was the noisy...

This is a difficult review because it has a lot going for it but it's little bits that drag it down , Pros are location and price it's very cheap by York standards but the place just needs a good old clean and then redecorating from top to bottom and some new carpets throwing about the place . The pictures...

We recently stayed at the White Horse. We were so disappointed. On arrival we were stood at the bar for 5mins before anyone spoke to us. Then we were told our room wasn't quite ready, this was at 2pm, we eventually got to our room at 3. Once in the room I walked in and was disappointed that the room...

Stayed here for a last minute getaway. We booked last minute so choice was limited. The location of this pub is the best ever you're literally across the road from everything york has to offer. There is no parking and cost around 20 for the night across the road. Checked in with the lady on the bar who shown us...
