Fantastic, cosy accommodation very well presented, quiet as opposed to say Premier Inn utilised by many different types of guest, yet still within easy 10min walk of the town centre. Your host, Helen, is lovely and happy to accommodate wherever possible. For us breakfast was perhaps a little early for a weekend, but this is possibly due to the parking... More

My sister and I stayed for three nights at the end of October. We received a warm, friendly welcome from Helen who was very helpful in answering our questions about the locality and how best to get around the city. She even forwarded jewellery that I had left behind in the bedroom! Our twin room was clean and very comfortable... More

This guesthouse is lovely and all needs have been considered. It is very clean, comfortable, warm and good value. It is also very convenient for the centre of York, readily accessible on foot in a comfortable 10mins, and also for the railway station. Guests are made to feel very welcome and the breakfast is great (perfect poached eggs!). I have... More

Me and my partner stayed in October for a weekend. Lovely clean and quiet accommodation at an excellent price. 10/15 minute walk to the city centre but 5 mins to the nearest 'junction' of the walls. Lots of lovely little restaurants nearby but this place had an excellent selection at brealfast and the full English was lovely! The only downside... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Farthing for 4 nights in a family room. We received the warmest of welcomes and nothing was too much trouble to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Our room was clean, cosy and the beds extremely comfortable. The perfect place to rest weary feet after walking around York! The breakfasts were excellent,... More

Just spent two nights there and it was excellent, lovely owner, great breakfast, all food from around York, very tasty. My room clean, great bed. The guest house is sited in a great area of York, 10 minutes from town centre. I will be staying there again next there.

Spent 2 nights here for a friends wedding....we were made very welcome. Room was lovely and clean, bed was great and the breakfast was fresh, hot and plenty of it! Any time we are in York we will be staying here.....the location is quiet but near everything! Short, flat walk into the centre.

I stayed for three nights while working in York and would echo the positive comments from the solo travelers below. I don't have much too add to those remarks except to say that breakfast is usually served between 8.00 am and 9.00 am, but because I was working, I needed breakfast a little earlier on one of the days. I... More
