Comments by walkers who stayed at York House Hotel in High Hawsker on The Coast to Coast Path
Bit of a strange one. Lots of signs saying there's a bar and food but it was all locked up. In fact after being given our key to the room we didn't see another person until breakfast. There is no call bell for staff or telephone number. We went looking for an evening meal at the local pub to be told they'd no room - luckily a local told us to walk down the Cinder Track ( old railway) to the next village about 15 mins away and go to the Windmill Pub. which might be serving food. Luckily we did and they were as the steak night was very good.
The breakfast at York House was good but overall, compared to our other bed nights this was the second most expensive and a bit of a let down. The Owner was really chatty the following morning and seemed a nice guy and reading the other comments on here our experience may have been a one off.

A lovely, well-equipped, clean and comfortable room. Relaxing environment with good facilities. Friendly staff and good food.

I had some resevations about staying here as the previous reviews had not been good but we were delighted with this place at very nearly the end of the walk. the rooms were newly decorated and very modern and bright, warm and cosy beds.

Breakfast was good and the welcome cheerful.

Friendly welcome. Large, comfortable, ensuite room. Catering arrangements a little unusual, but had an acceptable meal in the cafe/bar.

Only stayed for one night so our experience might be a one-off. Rooms were really nicely decorated, and a really good size. However, the bathroom floor had blood spots and the towels were dirty and also ripped. The carpet in the bedroom had crumbs around the chairs and there was no remote for the TV. Breakfast was possibly the worst of our trip - very greasy and not of good quality. Second most expensive accommodation on our trip and we also gave it the second lowest rating (6/10). However, the owners are really friendly and the pub in the village was great bar staff and wonderful food.

We stayed at York House on Sun 21 June 2009. Although the rooms were nicely decorated, the bathroom didn't look as though it had been cleaned after the last guest. The bar was open, with TVs blaring, but few customers. There wasn't any food available in the evening.

I was booked in for Saturday night 13.6.2009. I had sent the deposit as requested and had their letter confirming my booking. When I got there about 5 pm they had let my room to somebody else! They did not apologise or sort any other accommodation out for me although I got my deposit back. I was disgusted with them. I decided to walk the 5 miles to Robin Hood's Bay in faith that I might get accommodation there which fortunately I did. However, I felt compelled to put these comments on the web to warn any other walkers. Nothing like this happened in the whole of the rest of the walk.

We stayed there on Sunday 14th September to a nice room with en-suite shower on the middle floor. We had an evening meal & drinks @ The Hare & Hounds which was excellent. Breakfast was nothing special, where the table cloth had not been changed from the previous day - 6 / 10.

The young couple managing York House are trying hard to make a go of it but they are new to the job and it shows a little. The middle floor rooms are very noisy any sound from above or below is heard. Not good when someone comes in at 2. 30 in the morning and stumbles about! The village pub is only a few minutes walk away but the food was disappointing. High Hawsker could do better.
John & Rose, left on 05 August 2008
Stayed 26th May 2008. I think the person with comments before us obviously has the wrong date! We thought York House was one of the best places we stayed on our walk as the rooms were enourmous and very luxurious and Becci and Andrew, the young couple in charge could not have been more helpful. We were welcomed with tea and cake if we had wanted it.
Janet Penfold, left on 11 June 2008
Stayed here on 30th May 2008. New management. Accommodation was extremely tired and disappointing. Although only two rooms were occupied, we were given a room with unpleasant bathroom and a wobbly W.C. The evening meal had to be booked in advance. We were the only diners yet full menu could not be provided and meal was overpriced. Breakfast however was good. Establishment was chaotic and disorganised. Do not expect an unprompted pot of tea and cake on arrival! Not geared up to Coast2Coasters. Fawlty Towers has more charm.
Philip Beddard & Judith Dale, left on 06 June 2008
Great accommodation on the route. Good evening meal possible and very helpful hosts, who saw to it that eventually luggage was in fact delivered from Glaisdale!
