It is value for money, spacious room, 15 minutes walking distance to the city centre, and free car parking. The hotel manger was very kind to let us use the car park during the check out day. Drawback: long stairs which is difficult to carry push chair of stairs.

Lovely little B&B, Libby who runs it was a great hostess, we had the small room (no 4) for two nights at the front which although it had the traffic it didn't spoil our sleep, very comfy bed, full English breakfast included which was great. Pub was quiet but a nice place for a quick drink. Perfect Base for exploring...

Plus points.. Clean Sheets, nice location, free parking, hot shower. Cheap. Down points, Room 4 - loud traffic noise, mould on windows, dust on pelmet curtains and top of wardrobe, dirt on carpets and out of date breakfast cereal. I booked a few weeks before travel and checked reviews so I knew it wasn't the Ritz and basically you do...

This hotel is very close to the city center. In front of it you can find a supermarket and some good place to have meal. The rooms are quite clean. It has free parking so for people coming by car it is very confortable.

OK so I only paid £50 for the night. Good, location. Just a short walk from station, town, walls etc Free parking at rear. Bad, couldn't contact anyone on arrival as pub was shut at 1.30! No welcome pack, Wi-Fi, breakfast time. Ugly, tired rooms, not the cleanest and little effort at all. The Bay Horse is a bed, parking...

Just returned after spending a few days in York and I have to say the Bay horse pub was exactly what I was looking for. Yes it is not a 5 star accommodation but you get what you pay for. Upon arriving we were greeted with a warm welcome and were immediately shown to our room. Next morning breakfast started...

I like to visit York a lot but with it being a tourist town finding reasonably priced accommodation is very difficult so when we found a room on booking.com for 2 people including breakfast for £50 I thought it was worth a try. Initial impression was a little worrying as when we arrived they did not know about our booking...
