After traveling for a month, sharing flats, and in hostels, I wanted a place I could relax. And Blakeney house was it. Very affordable, yet luxurious. I was met at the door, greeted by name, offered maps of the city, bus schedules, menu's for local restaurants, and then shown into the most beautiful room. It was immaculate. There was coffee,...

Blakeney House is a good 1.7 miles to outskirts of the city centre. Large property with onsite parking which though a bonus is quite tight for space. Hosts were very welcoming and we felt well looked after. Some nice touches of having a common refrigerator with fresh milk and cold water which was much appreciated after a long day. We... More

Thank you for your review. I would like to address some of the points you have made. Firstly Blakeney House is 1.2 miles on google map from the city wall. It is a lovely straight flat walk, but there is also a convenient bus service and a taxi is around £6.00 It is such a shame you didn't give us... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Blakeney House and have already started telling family and friends what a lovely place it is. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners Louise and Mark who are very welcoming and extremely helpful. The B&B is on the outskirts of York as advertised but we enjoyed a stroll... More

This guest house/B&B just a little ways out of York city centre has everything you need. Firstly, there's free parking in the back, or on the street - a definite plus in York. The entrance lobby is lovely & fresh with lots of guest info for things to do in the area & brollies to borrow. Our room was spotless,... More

Hi Keri Thank you for your wonderful and detailed review. It is good to know those little touches make such a difference. You really get the hospitality and the effort Mark and I put into our B&B. Your little rant also saved us from thinking about an unnecessary investment into a larger T.V.! We look forward to seeing you at... More

The best feature of the Blakeney House is the owners. They are very nice, friendly, and helpful. My room was just average in most respects and less so in others. The bed was very uncomfortable but the room was adequate. The TV was only slightly larger than my laptop so you are not going to spend a great evening with... More

Thank you for you review. I see from your other reviews that you favour the chain hotels and feel that you miss the point of an English B&B. Blakeney House has many lovely features, it is a beautiful Edwardian building set in a lovely residential area and admired by many of our guests. As we advertise and shown on google... More

This property was in an excellent location with very good bus services into the city. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was excellent in all respects. Breakfasts were substantial and most delicious. We look forward to returning in the future.
