We had the main floor room. It was smallish but the furnishings were cheerful and more than adequate. The distance to downtown is stated to be about 15 minutes but for seniors like us it was more like a half an hour, but the terrain was fiarly level. The staff was very friendly and the breakfasts were ample. We stayed... More

Even though we had a small twin room, the beds were extremely comfortable and the room was clean. The tv could've been bigger and it was a bit of a squeeze getting into the shower, but there was plenty of hot water and the duck hand wash and shower gel was a nice extra. We also had the usual tea... More

The award winning B and B lives up to the highest standards, expected by its many awards, and offers superb accommodation, wonderfully filling breakfasts, catering to all tastes, and a hugely welcoming and accommodating host, Helen and her mum, Shireen (the cook). They make every effort to make your stay special. Nothing is too much trouble for them. I have... More

This guest house is really lovely. Very comfortable and friendly. Easy 10 minute walk into York city centre with some lovely restaurants nearby. Will certainly stay here again. Breakfasts really good :)

We were given room 5 on the first floor. The room was on the small side, especially if you are a large person. It was en-suite and also had tea and coffee making facilities. The bed was comfortable and the room was tidy and well kept. Helen was very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our breakfast on both mornings of... More

Stopped for a couple of nights in room 2, ground floor between the entrance hall and dinning room. The whole place is well maintained, Landlady was very accommodating, good choice at breakfast and everything ran smoothly. Breakfast is 8am- 9am. Location is a fairly quiet residential side street about a 10 min walk from the city centre. There are shops... More

I had an absolute delight staying here! The host was so warm and welcoming and told me about lots of different places to visit and see while I was here. Room was cosy, bed was great. Very handy to have a sink in the room. It's in a really nice area, easy walking distance from the centre of town, and... More

Received a lovely warm welcome upon a very soggy arrival! The room was clean and cosy, the breakfast was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. A short walk (10minutes?) to the city walls and attractions, so was ideally located. Would 100% recommend!

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
