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.

After a few bad experiences of guest houses/b&b's in York we decided to choose the old vic, after reading some good reviews.We knew they had a dog Leo, a springer before booking which didn't bother us as we love animals!!. We slept in the family room as it was our first holiday with our 4month old son :). The room... More

I work regularly in York and have stayed at the old vic guest house on and off for around 6 months. So I'm really ideally placed to comment on the exceptional standard of service provided. The rooms are warm and extremely comfortable with a fantastic breakfast in the morning. All the rooms come with private shower facilities and Televisions. Julie... More

Thank you so much to Julie, ian and family for a lovely wknd. We were made to feel very welcome and Leo the dog is great. Comfortable clean rooms, excellent breakfasts what more could anyone ask for. Lovely stroll along the river into the city, so a bonus not needing to use the car. We would definitely recommend to anyone.... More

Well I had recently written a lovely review of my recent stay, but it seems to have disappeared. Never mind, to reiterate the break was absolutely perfect, good food, lovely room and Julie and her family so warm and friendly as they always are. This was my third visit to York and I can honestly say gets better with every... More

I only spent one night at The Old Vic and a vey pleasant experience it was. The owners are very welcoming, and although I had only booked a single room I was given a small double room, which was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The free wifi is a great bonus. The breakfast was really good and there was lots... More

Firstly it is advertised at 10 minutes walk to town but more like 20. There is no advertisement of a resident dog, and someone who is scared of dogs and is greeted with a large barking dog that jumped all over me with no attempt from the owner to control it was not pleasant. The dog also did not stop... More

Myself and Ian work so hard in out guest house to make sure our guests feel at home in a clean and comfortable environment. It was therefore absolutely devastating when we read this review. We had no idea you felt this way, we spoke on several occasions about your stay and never once did you mention any issues with your... More

I booked 5 nights at The Old Vic for my son to be near the University of York for his Final Meeting & Presentation. He loved this family-run guest house, with its excellent location and fabulous breakfasts. I'm sure that his relaxing break here made all the difference! He was able to revise in the library, see friends and just... More
