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... More

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... More

Friendly welcome, service was relatively quick. Food was hot and of good quality. We had a cheeseburger and a veggie burger. Reasonably priced, compared to a lot of places in York! No complaints here, we left earlier than we expected to as we were the only people in lol

Don't judge the hotel by the photos on laterooms. It does not live up to them. It was fine!!!. Beds comfy although to be in a front room I did not get any sleep. The traffic lights are right outside your window and the it is a main road so traffic runs all night. We booked two rooms both with... More

Booked here for a Saturday night for our wedding anniversary due to the proximity of York center and how the rooms appeared online. When we originally booked we booked a 'deluxe or superior room' which included an en-suite bathroom with either shower or roll-top bath. The price we paid also included breakfast. When we arrived we were told that due... More

We stayed at The Bay Horse for two nights 5th and 6th April '16 and were pleasantly surprised. The car park, entrance to which is via the small side street, is small but providing everyone parks sensibly, the bays are numbered, there is no problem. Our room was at the side of building, those at the front may encounter some... More
