Stayed here for 2 nights. We got the family room with double bed, two single beds, sofa, shower and bath. Great home cooked breakfast in morning. Really don't understand the bad reviews on here. The owners are very friendly and for the money paid great value for money. Ample parking round the back. About a 10 to 15 minute walk...

This hotel adds true weight to the phrase 'you get what you pay for' this is not a B&B, it is a pub with rooms. In my teens and 20's I would have been happy to stay here if I had too much to drink downstairs and couldn't be bothered to go home. I stayed here with my husband and...

Bar not too bad. Very dated throughout. When we were shown to our room, upon closer inspection we found Towels which were disgusting and also the sink didn't work! Had to move to another b&b. Best decision made!

Room furniture was old and dated. Towels rolled up on bed were filthy looked like the they had been used to clean the bathroom, black marks yellow stains on them. Plumbing was a problem plug stuck in sink when removed underneath stench was appalling. We had to move on a bank holiday evening

Well well... first the positives... the staff are very friendly. Let us check in at 11am and this was much appreciated. Told nobody had stayed at all the previous night so room 7 was ready. It's a big room at the back up a flight of stairs overlooking the garden and car park. Breakfast was good and filled us up...

Very good for an cheap £50 a room, overnight stay. Staff were all lovely, the chef came in on his day off to cook us a full English breakfast. 10 minute walk to the centre of the city and easy to find, with the help of the staff in the hotel. Bed was very comfy and room very clean, although...

I have recently come back from a 3 night stay at The Shoulder of Mutton and paid a total of £270 for the experience. When you enter the hotel you are required to walk through the bar area which smells of stale alcohol and with no reception to check in expected to collect keys from the bar. On the way...

Stay here for 1 night, check in was quick and greeted promptly and shown to our room. Room was big and nice and warm. Breakfast was top notch freshly cooked and fresh produce, overall all would recommend to anyone who wants to stay in York for a short break.

Stayed here with the wife for one night in December 2016 and had to book at short notice due to another hotel cancelling on us. Was £80 a night, not expensive but mid range really and probably slightly over priced in my opinion. It is a pub with rooms and the check in was seamless, and I was promptly shown...

We stayed at this B&B on Halloween night 2016 and it was sufficient for our first stop of our road trip in the UK. The parking was at the rear of the building and was convenient. Also, we drove from London Heathrow after a red eye flight from the U.S. and the Shoulder of Mutton was very easy to locate...
