This B&B was easy to book, easy to find and on arrival was very clean and tidy with a nice friendly welcome. We had room 2, a family room with a double bed and a set of bunk beds. Once in the room I noticed that the beds just had a sheet and a very thin duvet on them but... More

Me and my wife both enjoyed our stay at The Old Vic Guest House. When we arrived the welcome was very friendly. Leo, the family cocker spaniel (big softy) made himself known immediately and hung around long enough to get a pat on the tummy, whereupon our entrance was granted :D. The room (4) was very clean and warm and... More

I checked Trip Advisor before booking this B&B as I do for anywhere the first time. Too many good reviews for this to be a bad choice. The negative ones are in isolation and grossly misleading. The room was warm, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was beautifully cooked, presented with attention to detail and plentiful. The host Julie greeted... More

The Family and I had a fantastic stay at the Old Vic Guest House in Late October. The Hosts were amazing, the rooms beautiful and the location idea for adventuring around York and not to mention the Breakfasts would be a crime! all in all and 100% stay and I would not hesitate to return to the Old Vic Guest...

Stayed for one night at theThe Old Vic and cannot fault it in any way. Had orginally planned to stay for two nights but a last minute change of plan meant our visit ended up being shorter than expected but this wasn't a problem for the owners at all. The owners are lovely people. Warm, welcoming and helpful without being... More

Having recently stayed here taking up 4 of the rooms in this place I would without a doubt return, superb value for money, friendly staff, perfect location and off the main drag for parking. Bedrooms were clean and tidy, I personally had the single room, the bed was lovely and comfy and I had access to a personal bathroom which... More

Stayed this weekend to celebrate my 50th and had a wonderful time. This is a beautiful place to stay with everything you could need. Spotlessly clean, warm and cosy and serving a deliciously hearty breakfast. A definite bonus was the stunning 15 minute walk into town along the river , there is a bus stop at the end of the...

I spent four nights at the Old Vic, what a fabulous old Victorian home it is. Julie and Ian are just wonderful, warm and genuine people who run a homely and cosy establishment. I was on my own and it was so good to come 'home' to the Old Vic. I had the large double bed room on the ground... More
