I stayed overnight for one night on business. I am used to staying in Premier Inns or above so the room here was small by comparison. However, it met my purposes for the night and was very clean. The breakfast was exceptional and I couldn't believe that it didn't cost extra. Well worth the money.

This gorgeous B&B was a lucky find! It is absolutely spotless, very warm and has the "wow" factor. The hostesses are delightful and provided a superb breakfast. Walking distance to the town centre an added bonus. Worth the trip to York just to stay there!

My wife and I stayed here for three nights at the end of March. Ideally situated a short distance from the centre of York, we really felt at home. As others have noted, the breakfasts are very good and set you up for the day. One totally unexpected touch; we celebrated our Ruby anniversary during our stay and, returning to... More

My wife and I loved our stay here. The breakfast was simply outstanding, the rooms were very clean and we had WIFI. The location for us was perfect as we travelled by train and with a short 10 min walk it made the stay more relaxing. York is a historical gem with lots of amazing buildings and architecture that was... More

a lovely place to stay, handy for the city and very warm,friendly and welcoming. Stunning breakfast with plenty of choice. Spotlessly clean throughout. Close to bus routes but the centre is walkable. Street parking available - we will definitely be back

I stayed here for one night on two separate occasions. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable, and the hospitality was excellent. The breakfast was faultless with a huge variety on offer. The hotel is in a central location, a short walk from the railway station and city centre. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for one night on our visit to the Christmas Market. A lovely find, only a ten minute walk to the centre of York and off street parking. Our room was on the ground floor with en-suite. Lovely comfortable bed, spotlessly clean and a welcome breakfast the following morning with a wide variety to choice from on the... More
