Lovely family and I have to mention Leo who was so welcoming in his doggie fashion! It was an easy walk to the river and along the river walk... More

If you're looking for a cosy, friendly, good old fashioned family-run guest house then look no further. Then factor in the delicious home-cooked breakfast, ensuite/coffee&tea/TV and free wifi facilities plus a short stroll along the picturesque riverside into the city and all for a very reasonable price, you'd be nuts to look anywhere else!

The King Size Room was beautiful and spacious. The Owners are very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and silent in the night. We can recommend this guest house and will certainly come back because we enjoyed our stay in York and this won't be our last visit in York.

We slept in the family room as it was our first holiday with our 4month old son :). The room... More
