Would stay there again
Be sure to have dinner there at least once. The food was the best we had in York.

Good choice for a budget stay
This would be a five overall if not for the room, mostly the bathroom. The shower stall was extremely small and it was difficult to maintain consistent water temperature and pressure. Also, in the morning, a reek would waft up from the sink drain. The rest of the room was okay, but could have been better if both windows opened. As there is no AC, this was the only way to keep the room cool (along with a desktop-sized fan provided by the inn which we put in the window and ran 24/7). We do want to emphasize the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the rest of the inn. We had the feeling it was a local regular, but we felt right at home. Honestly it was better than we expected overall for the price, so we do recommend The Lighthorseman for a budget priced, adult inn.
