I've given this place a two star rating because I can only think of two positives regarding our stay here. The first being its location, it's right by the river with decent onsite parking at no extra cost which can be hard to find in York. The second positive was the lovely lady who welcomed us upon arrival, despite the... More

Very tired & tatty decor, tiny bathroom you can hardly move around in with a leaking saniflow toilet, only 1 bedside lamp! Needs a good clean plenty of cobwebs, don't think the bathroom fan has ever been cleaned. Breakfast leads a lot to be desired, is extremely poor & nothing to help people suffering food allergies, also nobody around to... More

We booked this because we were going to a dinner which coincided with a race weekend and everywhere was full. It was not too far from where we wanted to be. Parking was very tight with only four small spaces one of which you could not get in in my opinion. I drive a micra and only one person could... More

We stayed recently and after reading previous reviews, was very disappointed. We had a family room. The double bed was unbelievably creaky and noisy and you felt as if you were about to fall through it. On investigation, I discovered that about 7 slats were missing and the gap had been covered with a wooden board, which slid about! The... More

Great Stay here. Staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was continental but great choice. Room was great and bed was very comfy had a great sleep. About 15 min walk to town was very pleasant as you can walk along the riverside. Great stay will be back.

The Saxon House is relatively cheap, has parking, is well located - it's a ten minute walk along the river to the centre of York - and the hosts are very friendly and welcoming. But don't expect much from the rooms - ours had no decoration on the walls whatsoever (apart from what looked like a lip-stick smear), the beds... More

No bed made, no tea cups washed, dirty bathroom, no wardrobe just hangers above a dirty fire place! The only time we met the owner was to take our money on arrival, when we left no one present to ask had we enjoyed our visit! just left the keys on the desk. Suggestion for improvement. LARGE SLAB of SEMTEX.
