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

Staff were superb and very friendly. The room was cosy and very clean. The breakfast included was fantastic. A happy stay whilst looking round at this city's vast history. Will defiantly use this bnb again if I go back to York. Big thanks you for a comfortable, relaxed stay

We had a very pleasant stay from the moment we stepped inside. The welcome was warm and they made sure to give us tips about going around the town. Our room had good size with own basin. Bed was comfortable to sleep in although it did creak really easy. The shared bathroom was kept tidy and clean. And the wifi... More

Booked this Bed and Breakfast on Bookings.com, rooms spotlessly clean, well furnished and very homely. Breakfast was lovely. 5 minutes walk to centre of York and free parking right outside the hotel. Should we visit York again will definitely re-book

My husband and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago, just before Christmas. It was a lovely guesthouse and in a great location, being just a short stroll away from the city centre. The place was decorated really nicely for Christmas and the room was lovely. Breakfast was excellent and the hosts were very friendly, always willing to answer... More

I enjoyed my stay here enormously. The room was small but cosy and well stocked. I visited just before christmas, and the house was teeming with great xmas decorations from top to bottom. Lots of choice at breakfast and a pleasant breakfast room. Friendly landland/staff. Would definitely visit again.
