We arrived at the Guest House and were surprised to find that the owners were on vacation (Tour de France weekend) and there were people covering, so we worried about our experience. Let me suffice it to say, were were not disappointed! Dave and Lindsey were wonderful!! They spent time chatting with us, giving us recommendations and the breakfasts were... More

We were warmly greeted by Jane with a delicious homemade brownie & water. Booked late so I didn't get a front room overlooking the River Ouse, but had a lovely large room in the back of the house. Had a nice modern bathroom with a heated towel rack. The B & B is in a great location with the river... More

Coffee and tea were provided in room along with cookies. The breakfast room was lovely, and the breakfast just delicious. It's within walking distance to the train station and... More

Well located B & B in the centre of town with car parking available. Very efficient and friendly hosts who provided a good hot breakfast. A couple of rooms overlooked the river with larger room at the back which we stayed in. Very well appointed ensuite with bath which had recently been updated. Close to railway line but trains were...

This is our second stay at Abbey Guest House, with priviate parking, views of the river Ouse, all within walking distance, perfect. Our hosts were attentive, spotlessly clean room, excellent bathroom, big comfy bed, all with everything you should need, condiments tray, well stocked. Excellent breakfast, and the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, was the best I've had. Friendly atmosphere,... More

Me & my husband stayed here for 2 nights, and it is the nicest B&B we have ever stayed in. It is just a 5-minute walk from the train station, situated on the banks of the river, and another 5-minute walk into the town centre with all the attractions. The owners greet you on arrival with a smile and an... More

Superb location. Spotlessly clean and bright accommodation, very comfy beds, feather duvets, pure cotton bedding. Bathroom of similarly high standard with excellent shower. Very good WiFi. Lovely breakfast with various options. Add to that a friendly and helpful host who genuinely enjoys what she does - you just couldn't ask for better.

Perfect location for access to the train station, views along the river (we watched the rowers practice from our bed!), and walking int York. Warm hosts, good breakfast, not one complaint! These are new owners, since last August '13, so please check the dates of any negative reviews!

Jane is a wonderful hostess, providing a clean, tidy room overlooking the river and public walkways, and a delicious English breakfast. We stayed there for two nights in May, and found everything about the place just right. It is a very short walk to the historic sights. We arrived by train, and were at the front door after a five...
