A lovely b&b, reasonably priced and within walking distance from the town centre. Breakfast was really tasty, and plenty of it too. The room itself was very comfortable, and the shower was hot. What a beautiful building, we will defiantly be back x

I stayed here with my sister for two nights and had a wonderful stay! It's great value for money and the location is away from the busy center but only a 10 minute walk. The owners are very friendly and welcoming (and the house pooches are adorable)! I would recommend for a quiet, relaxing weekend break. The Breakfast is also... More

A beautiful, warm and friendly B and B. Very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The lady who owns it, is very helpful. Breakfast was of a high quality and a wide range of food on offer. Excellent stay. Parking permit available which was of great help.

Two night stay early July 2015. Good sized room. Very friendly and helpful staff and lovely breakfast. Very quiet location but only ten to fifteen minutes walk from all the main attractions in York centre.

A beautifully kept guest house, excellent amenities, very comfortable and welcoming. I would love to stay there again! Lovely bedding, comfy bed, quiet location, fabulous breakfasts, just a really nice place to stay. I wondered if the shared bathroom would be a problem but this was not the case.

Great B&B, extremely clean and friendly, very helpful with info of where to go and how to get to there, spacious room at a generous price with a nice selection of tea or coffee. Within walking distance of the horse racing, which is what I went for.

A well furnished comfortable room with all the facilities you need, and spotlessly clean too. Ideally situated in a quiet street with free parking provided, about ten minutes walk to the city centre. The breakfast was excellent with a good selection and the owner was very welcoming and polite. I would most certainly recommend this hotel.

Wow! We enjoyed all the facilities we are used to in expensive hotels but at a VERY fair price. Our twin room had tea/coffee/kettle supplied and biscuits all replenished daily, a hairdryer, boxed tissues, ample spare bedding for the Oh-so-comfortable beds, and bath robes in the wardrobe! Our shared shower-room was well supplied with toiletries and individual bathmats for hygiene.... More
