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.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting York. It is clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was wonderful. It is located a short walk from the train station and the center of town. You will get to explore the little village outside of York on your walk to the walled city. Be sure to visit the... More

come and try this small friendly Guest house. Within easy walking distance to the Centre of York and the Minster. Very comfortable rooms and wondrful full english breakfast. Disc parking supplied bb the Fartings so no problems there. We enjoyed our short (long weekend) stay and would go back again.

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
