Clean inside and out a really well presented pub. Rooms were clean and breakfast was good. Well placed in York to get around . Friendly owner with a well run business, and a really relaxed evening for us.

just returned from our annual shopping trip in York and once again stayed with Paul and his family at the Bay Horse. The location is good...5 minutes walk to the Minster or city centre...and the Inn is very warm and accomodating. We have stayed at quite a few of the much more expensive hotels in York over the years and...

The room was gorgeous, clean, cozy and comfortable. It had a really traditional feel, but all the amenities were well-kept. For the cost, I wasn't expecting it to be so good. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and the staff were friendly, helpful and on for a fun chat. They helped me navigate the area and made my stay really enjoyable. Wish...

Visited York on a very busy Saturday lunch time and found that the majority of city centre pubs were full. However, a very short and enjoyable walk through the museum garden took us to Marygate, where this historic inn sits. The large modern interior offers a variety of seating and a large bar with a decent selection of real ales....

Stayed in an apartment across road so this being the nearest eatery in we went. Rump steak done perfectly, great beer and super friendly staff. Nicely done décor, very quiet but it was Halloween so guess the people of York were trick and treating elsewhere. Its a pub but got something to offer and with outside seating near the river,...

If you're looking for a Bay Horse hotel...make sure this is the one that you book. We booked this hotel last minute after being let down by another bay horse in York. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The breakfast was excellent and the location was perfect for exploring the city centre. The room was spacious and well equipped...

Looked up the bay horse on trip advisor before booking just to see what other guests thoughts were. All I can really say is I agree with everything that was written about the place, from clean and tidy rooms to the perfect breakfast served by really friendly staff. We only had a couple of drinks in the bar but we...

Good choice of real ales, cider more limited but at least they had Aspalls on draught instead of usual boring Strongbow or similar. Free wifi. We didn't eat but the menu looked good, if a little pricey. Handy location just outside the city walls with plenty of parking space.
