Disappointed as had good reviews but I found it to be dated decor, hard mattress with harder pillows and cleaning not up to scratch all mirrors smeared and shower cubicle was far from clean. Breakfast was OK but had a hair in mine.

Nice place to chat and eat, clean and friendly. Lovely food but the portions are to small so expensive for what you get. If you a small eater and don't mind paying the price then this would be ideal for you.

Paul & his wife Cath were fantastic. Room was lovely and cosy with a bright and airy feel. Bathroom was light bright and clean with an amazing power shower. Breakfast was spit on with the eggs cooked to perfection. Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

Good room and facilities. Excellent breakfast too despite layout being a bit unconventional. It is well located for people to use the P&R service into York. Only real improvement we would suggest is for some more obvious lighting / signing on the a-road, as we found it tricky to spot the entrance at night.
