Brilliant hotel with reasonable pricing.
The room was amazing. Quite well equipped. Very good location, short 5 min walk to Whitley bay. The hotel manager was very welcoming and helpful. He even personally showed me to the room. Really nice personal touch. Would definitely recommend it and will also stay again if back in this area.

Nice but overpriced.
Nice place, excellent service and great food. Shower was very weak and no toilet roll holder in the bathroom detracted from the overall experience. The parking was also poor. I felt it was somewhat overpriced in general.

Relaxing break
York House is a lovely place to stay. It looks small but it is like the Tardis! Close to the shops and restaurants. Beach at the end of the road. Welcoming arrival and lovely room with all of my requests met. Felt safe with their Covid-19 policy. The only problem I had was I couldn't get a signal to access the Welcome information on line so I had 24 hrs with no emails (not an issue when you're there to relax !). The staff were helpful and friendly. We had a good stay and may be back .
