We stayed here in between 4-5 of August whilst visiting relatives in York centre. We stayed in room 11 which was newly refurbished and I have to say, The nicest B and B room we have ever stayed in.

The Hosts at the Blakeney, Louise and Mark can't do enough to make your stay pleasurable, it was a joy to stay.

We've stayed, this year, at two indifferent, one excellent and one rather poor B and B. This is the one that shows all the others how it should be done. Mark and Louise were most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them to meet our wishes. The room was well appointed and the hotel is perfectly placed on... More

Mark & Louise are fantastic! So friendly - and I much enjoyed talking to Mark about his research into his Grandfathers Boer War/WW1 army service. I hope,Mark, that you are eventually able to solve the mystery of the name change! As for our room (12), very comfortable beds and extremely clean. The members of our party (daughter, son-in-law, grandson with... More

This is a lovely small guest house - conveniently located for the centre of York with off street parking. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming and the rooms are excellent. Very comfortable and quiet and extremely well equipped including free wifi. They serve a fantastic breakfast and overall I can really recommend this hotel.

Stayed here with friends for 3 nights in July 2014. This is one of the most comfortable small hotels I have stayed in in the UK. Everything was excellent; the room, breakfasts and friendliness of the owners. Nothing is too much for them. If ever I'm in York again I will certainly stay at Blakeney House another time. Buses stop... More

This is such a convenient place to stay, close to the city centre, and with plenty of parking. The welcome was warm and informal, the room very comfortable - I especially appreciated the fresh milk in the fridge as an alterative to the ubiquitous uht. Breakfast was very good and the owners were friendly and very helpful.
