Excellent Guest House. Home from home. Accomodation very clean and cosy. Shower brilliant. Very welcoming and accomodating, nothing is too much for them. Breakfasts excellent. Great for a quiet break but within minutes from the city centre. Ideal location will definitely be coming back to stay. Came for the Tour De France and this was ideal for us. Could not... More

A lovely guest house run by a very friendly and accommodating host. In a nice quiet area but an easy stroll into town. The room upstairs were cosy and every endeavour was made to ensure the sharing of a bathroom was suffice. It was handy to have a sink in the room as well. The breakfast was superb, catering for...

Second superb Guest House in a week! This place is very well appointed and spotlessly clean and such a warm welcome too, even though I turned up very early (11am) the lady invited me in and my room was ready.

Excellent location within an easy walk to town. We arrived early to a warm and friendly greeting. Parking is available and very convenient. He house is beautiful, clean, and comfy, and breakfasts are excellent. Would definitely stay here again.

Spent two nights here recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner provided a warm welcome and provided us a parking permit to allow us to park right outside for the whole of our stay. The room we had was en-suite and was impeccably clean. Good tea and coffee-making facilities with high quality biscuits. Plenty of electrical outlets for charging... More

Except for the room being a little on the small side, I couldn't fault anything about this stay. I was given a warm, friendly welcome full of tips for my stay in York; very welcome after a long journey up on the train. Bed was extremely comfortable, room was clean, as was the shared bathroom, which was never in use... More

I have just returned from a relaxing two night stay at the Farthings, travelling with my 8 year old son. Upon checking in we were offered some really useful info about local attractions and money saving offers, which I obviously welcomed! The room my son and I shared was clean and the bed (complete with feather pillows; couldn't believe my... More

Myself and two others stayed here for a long weekend in May this year and had a wonderful stay. The Farthings is located just a short walk from the station and the old town. We were able to check in very early, and would have been able to leave bags had the room not been ready. We were also able... More

Stayed here for one night in March, wish it could have been longer. The house is beautiful with a lovely garden. Our room was huge and very comfortable. Had to leave early next morning so did not have breakfast so cannot comment on that. Only negative is the TV in room is very small and as the room is so... More
