Negative Reviews


Noisy Location.

Due to its central location in York and the pub below stairs, this inn has continuous noise associated with it. The loudness can carry on well into the night as the pub stays open quite late.


Not Really a Hotel.

Guests say this is not actually a hotel, but a collection of rooms above the restaurant and pub, therefore there is no reception area or hotel front which makes it hard to find. Once there, you'll find just a back door with a telephone number to gain entr


Difficult to Get to Upper Floors.

All rooms are located on the second and third floors with very narrow, steep steps leading up to them. You may find it rather difficult to lug your baggage up and down the stairs.
