Feel a bit bad about average rating as is a lovely b & b with great staff and owners It is in a great location. Parking on street (we had to park on different street ) but felt happy leaving my car there and I do normally worry. We had rooms 2 and 6 which were family and twin. Both... More

Not a bad b and b with nice staff and good breakfast. Room was much smaller than expected and wasn't a double bed - felt like a 3\4. Although the room was clean it could have been cleaner in places as there were some cobwebs and dust on surfaces. Rooms could use some modernisation and they felt a bit dated... More

We were visiting The Old Vic guesthouse for the third time and we were far from disappointed. We got a very warm welcome from Julie's mum and the lovely Leo! The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated and very clean. The breakfast was lovely as always. The guest house is perfectly situated near enough to town to walk in... More

Great b&b with lovely breakfast, in a really good area for the city. Clean rooms & Fantastic value for money. Parking is on the street outside, we had to park around the corner but no problem. Lovely walk down the river into the city. I would recommend this b&b.

Stayed two nights at the Old Vic. Staff were more than friendly, breakfast was great and staff very attentive. Found room very clean, quiet, bed comfy and warm. Only bad point was the shower pressure not strong but that's only because we are used to more pressure. Would recommend and stay there again. Very enjoyable

We only stayed one night at the Old Vic, but we'll definitely be back next time we visit York. The room was clean and bright with a very comfy bed. Nice en suite shower room, also very clean. The owners were very welcoming (including Leo the dog!), and couldn't do enough for us. Lovely full english breakfast which set us... More

I really can't recommend The Old Vic Guest House highly enough. We spent three very comfortable nights here and would happily stay again. Both the owner (Julie) and staff were friendly and helpful (especially when we needed a printer in an emergency), and the full English breakfast really set us up for a days shopping in York. The twin room... More
