OK but freezing
"Very good location, restaurant was very good value, staff friendly and helpful. But the room was freezing. The central heating went off at 10pm, the temperature plummeted and the radiators did not come on in the mornings. The sight of my own breath in the morning reminded me of 1970s youth hostels."

Great location, unfriendly proprietor
"Great location and lovely Minster view room, Dawn was very helpful, however our stay was tainted by the attidude of the male owner. The hotel has a large bar, however when returning just before 11pm, we were refused a drink (last orders 11pm!? in a private bar) while he sat in the lounge watching TV. A large american group also fell foul of this. Unfortunately we wont be back."

"Our stay at the Coach House was short but sweet - the best part was the employees very helpful and friendly. The place was somewhat maze- like but we appreciated that. Good location. Nice breakfast served in the dinning room. Family friendly. We would reccomend this place to our friends"

"This hotel was not in the middle of York but still located very close (well within walking distance) to everything. (I walked from the hotel to the York Castle Museum which was the most distance away and still a comfortable walk.) It is on a quiet side street next to an old Abbey. (Nothing left but walls. It is now a bowling green I heard.) They have single rooms and they do not charge any extra for a single like some hotels. I had room 12 which did not have a private bathroom en suite but the bathroom in the hall was only used by me since all the other rooms on the floor (3 I think) had toilets in the rooms. One of the few hotels to have a bathtub to soak in! Quite nice in the cold English winters! Room 13 was a double but I would highly recommend it. Lots of room and a neat room setup. Limited parking in back for those who drive. A bar and small restaurant for dinner and for the breakfast which is included in the room rate. They take credit cards (another good thing that not all locations do.)"

Eat there, don't stay there
"Small rooms, inadequate beds. For my double room, one of the beds, was a bunk bed. (not great for a 6 ft. plus man) Bathroom did not have shower or daily soap. Shower was broken and bathtub was unusually small. Innkeepers very nice. Dinners were great; eat there, don't stay there."

Good location and service
"I stayed at the Coach House Hotel in York in April of 2005. The location is very convenient - on Marygate just outside the Bootham Bar gateway. The hotel was small, clean, and very pleasant. Many small hotels and B&Bs in York do not have single rooms - and often charge a high price for a single person using a "double" room. The single at the Coach House was tiny, but much better appointed than some "business" hotels I have used in England. There was a small but quite adequate en-suite bath, a very comfortable bed, a window that opened and shut, a fan, a TV, a clothes cupboard and several small drawers, a bedside table, and (best of all!) a bedside lamp (attached to the wall at the head of the bed) that really worked and was bright enough for night time reading. The breakfast was excellent. I will definitely stay here again."
