My husband and I stayed at the Abbey Guest House for 3 days and found it to be a great place to stay. The room was spacious with an updated bathroom. 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...

A warm welcome, a comfortable bed, wonderful view, a short pleasant walk into the historic city. As much or as little as you would like to do. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The new owners interacted as much or as little as you wished, they were thoughtful and helpful if you wanted to be private that's fine to. Hope to be... More

Stayed in Room 1 (four-poster bed) at Abbey Guest House the last weekend in April 2014. Fab view overlooking river, room was excellent with gorgeous shower en-suite and great facilities. Lovely stroll into town (less than 10 mins) via museum gardens and right opposite train station/railway museum (which is free!!). Hosts Jane and Kingsley very accommodating with yummy breakfasts.
