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.

This is the best B & B in York So why? First off readers of my previous reviews will know that disabled access is one of our main priorities. Parking: although there is parking at the rear on Mark suggestion we were able to park on the road right in front of the house. We had a spacious well furnished... More

A lovely guest house. We stayed one night whilst visiting family and were given a warm welcome. The room was lovely and clean and the breakfast was superb, especially the eggs florentine which was the best I had tasted anywhere. Will definitely go back again.

Everything a B&B close to the city should be, and more! The breakfast was especially good and the hosts friendly and helpful. It was very good value given the rating and location. I would certainly recommend this B&B without any qualms.

We stayed in Blakeney House for 2 nights during a weekend in May. We had initially booked a double room, but requested a twin room which was made available for our stay. The B&B has a large car park which is big enough to fit in a good amount of visitors. Louise & Mark were very friendly and gave lots... More

Thank you for your many kind comments in your review. Please note though that we advertise as been 20 minutes from the city wall which is 1.2 miles. This is acturate on google map. The city centre is 1.5miles, not two miles as you have suggested! Parking is angled as in many car parks to make access easier. Our car... More
