We stayed here on 18th and 19th November for a weekend away to York.

Shower room was rather small, but had lots of... More

Warm welcome. Average room size. Cosy bathroom with good complimentary items. Excelent breakfast. Old farmhouse feel to the place. Pleasant walk into town 20-25 mins. (Able to walk down river side if not flooded) Also on bus route. Ample parking.

Cold November days but large ensuite room with comfy beds and warm radiators, plentiful hostess trays and toiletries. Warm water and shower. I could hear the next door room but there... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the museums of York. The whole place had a lovely atmosphere and the wood panelling was very nice in the lounge & dining room. The breakfast was the best we have had an any hotel, and it was even cooked by an ex professional footballer. Certainly would recommend it

Situated approx 1 mile from the city centre and within yards of a very regular bus service taking you into the city centre as well as the McArthur Glen designer outlet. Alternatively take a very pleasant stroll along the river into the city centre. We received a... More
