Great location
Fabulous location opposite the end of the Shambles and within easy walking distance of all of York’s attractions. Only one vegetarian option on the menu and limited selection of cask ales. There was no room cleaning for the 3 nights we stayed there - toilet rolls and drink replenishment had to be asked for downstairs. Cups were cardboard ‘to-go’ variety and there was no hairdryer. TV reception was ‘dodgy’. We spent most of our time out and about so didn’t have breakfast at the hotel as there are a multitude of cafés nearby serving a bewildering choice of meals.

Wanted to stay her for ages but could never get booked in. It was an experience due to the pub sposedly being haunted. We had the lady Catherine room. Vert dark ornate furniture which added to the eerie feel of the room. Didn’t see a ghost but felt a presence & didn’t sleep all night but loved it. Good friendly staff & excellent full English breakfast. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.

I chose this hotel because of the novelty factor, I wanted something a bit different. The hotel was very olde worldy which appealed to me, however, the room we stayed in had cobwebs on the light fixture and the cover on the four poster looked like it hadn’t seen a washer in months. The staff were pleasant enough but I don’t think the room justifies the price and wouldn’t choose to stay here again.

The golden fleece is a lovely and spooky little place to stay. The shambles room is beautiful and outstandingly clean, by far the best hotel stayed.
