I stayed here with my partner for a weekend in March and have to say how nice it was! The owner Julie was so lovely and her dog Leo was so friendly. The B&B has a lovely homely feel to it and is perfect for a romantic weekend away! The Old Vic is great value for money, gorgeously decorated and... More

I came here and stayed two nights with my partner over the weekend. I was greeted by Julie (who has a lovely warm smile) and she gave us our key! The rooms are beautifully decorated, you can tell a lot of thought and passion has gone into it, and had tea and coffee facilities. I loved the river walk into... More

Their dog leo is a gorgeous springer spaniel who loves a good belly rub when you first arrive. The rooms are lovely and clean, and the... More

She told us how to walk to into the city centre alongside a beautiful river which only took about ten minutes. She advised us on the best places to visit and was so passionate about the area. The owners have... More

This was by far the worst place I have ever stayed in - there are plenty of hostels nicer and cheaper than this place. Here's just a few reasons why you SHOULD NOT STAY here: 1) It took me three days to get the place to answer their phones, and further two weeks to receive an email confirmation of payment.... More

This B&B is situated in a nice walking distance from the center of York. The walk along the river is really nice. It is a okay place to stay for a night or two although it isn’t as clean as it look like at the pictures. If you are allergic to dogs you should be aware that there is a... More
