The guesthouse is really well located for ambling along the river into the city - all the restaurants and pubs are only 5-10 minutes walk away. The owners were friendly, and the breakfasts were just what you need to fuel a walk around the city walls. The only letdown was the coffee served at breakfast.

Jane was very welcoming when we arrived early. Rooms immaculate and bathroom also. What a treat chocolate brownies in our room. Although near to railway noise minimal. Near to all amenities and we enjoyed our one night stay. Good breakfast you wont go hungry here. Would visit again.

We stayed here over the Easter period. The free parking was a great bonus, esp with the price of car parking. The location was great, overlooking the river and a short walk through the Museum gardens or along the river into the city centre. We were greeted with a pot of tea and a cake which was a nice touch.... More

Fantastic guest house, with very nice owners and great rooms. Very clean and tidy and the breakfast is top notch, well worth a visit and would highly recommend. Also within easy access to town 5 min walk, also only 10 mins from racecourse!!! Good value

My parents and I stayed here June 22-24, 2015, and had a great time. The location is pretty ideal, and is convenient both for the train station and for walking into the heart of York. Being situated on the river and watching the crew teams rowing by was charming. The hosts were friendly and quiet. They served great breakfast and... More

Thank you so much for your enthusiastic review of our guest house. We were pleased to hear that you enjoyed the riverside location and watching the rowing crews in their training sessions. We're sure you'll agree that Castle Howard is certainly worth a visit if you have time on your trip; the gardens in particular are lovely at this time... More

This is a very comfortable and quaint B&B. We stayed in room 2 and had a beautiful view of the river. The couple that run the inn are very nice and provide all your needs, including a snack upon arrival and a delicious breakfast. The house is very clean and bright and inviting. Located very conveniently to the train station... More

This guesthouse is a little gem - fabulous location, friendly welcome, superclean rooms and a delicious breakfast. The chocolate brownies and pot of coffee were very welcome on arrival before the short meander through the lovely Museum Gardens to the city. We will be back!

We spent three nights in a double room, very clean, comfortable and rowing clubs out the front window! An easy walk from the train station, just across the bridge (watch out for bicycles). A 5 minute walk into the walled city and good eating. The breakfasts here were good sized with fast service and fresh food. Our host, Lindsay, made... More

Our GPS took us right to the guesthouse using the postcode, although there are also good directions on the web site. There are reserved parking spaces—park in one of them and get a placard for your window when you check in. Once you park your car, you may not need to use it again, as the guesthouse is convenient to... More

We appreciate you taking the time and trouble to write such a detailed review; thank you for the positive comments regarding our private parking and the rest of our facilities. It’s probably worth mentioning that there is no regular train service on the Scarborough rail line overnight, so even with the window open you are unlikely to be disturbed by... More
