3 couples stayed here for 2 nights. Nigel was very welcoming. Rooms all spotless with tea and coffee in the rooms. Breakfast was first class. Good location. Would stay here again and will recommend this B and B to our friends.

Stayed here for 2 nights recently. Nigel very welcoming on arrival. Rooms/ensuites immaculately clean with tea-making facilities, TV and WiFi. Delicious breakfast served each morning. Helen and Nigel are caring, committed professional hosts who appreciate their guests. Good off-street parking. If you are not fit for a lot of stairs, book room on 1st Floor.

Lovely clean room with comfy beds, the lounge and breakfast room delightful too. Breakfast was well cooked and served politely. Our hosts couldn't have been more helpful. Clean, well decorated, and comfortable, only 5 minutes from all the wonderful shops and eateries in the city. I would return any time :)

Nigel and Helen were very gracious hosts. The room was pleasant and very comfortable. The bathroom was clean, linens fresh, everything worked perfectly. The internet was good. The breakfasts were simply wonderful. I did try the haggis, it is ok. The third floor room was not ideal but we are still in good enough shape to do the stairs. Parking... More

Wonderful, friendly hosts, Helen and Nigel have an excellent location here at Palm Court for the sights of York. Our family of 4 stayed in the family room for two nights and were very comfortable. Delicious breakfast each morning. It's a short walk to the York Walls, Minster, Jorvik centre, and The Shambles. A little further to the Railway Museum,... More

I'm pleased to say our experience during our stay at the Palm Court was thrilling and beautiful. Helen and Nigel were spectacular hosts: kind, always helpful and professional, yet able to make us feel incredibly at home even if we were several miles from it. The breakfast was excellent, the room incredibly big, airy and full of light, with a... More

This smashing B & B was just a few minutes walk from the towns shops and restaurants. The hotel was comfortable and clean and served a great breakfast. It had the added bonus of guest parking always at a premuim in York.
