Could do a lot better!!
We stayed for 4 nights at the end of November 22. The best thing about our room was the carpet, very clean looking and smart. There was no heating on when we arrived and our room was like an ice box, also the fan heater in the bathroom didn't work . But they were very quick to send in an electrician the following day who replaced the heater. During the whole of our stay the landlord didn't show himself once. We didn't eat there so can't comment on the food. But our room wasn't cleaned or our bin emptied during our stay. For the amount of money they charge, I wouldn't recommend it!!!!!

Unloved accommodation
The Room (8). Small, very basic, not been dusted above 8ft height (the ceiling was 13ft and cobwebs), 4 poster bed bare wood frame, tele 50% channels working, basic heating, basic shower, comfy bed. We intended eating in the pub on Friday night, but the barman didnt know if the chef was going to turn up (this was at 6pm) so we went out. Breakfast was nice, good variety of individually priced items. Room was only worth about £50 a night. Would not recommend it unless you must stay in york and cant get anywhere else.
