Had only one night in York, we are happy that we chose Abbey guesthouse. Fantastic location: close to train station and town, adjacent to the river Ouse. We had a room with a view of river that was very tastefully appointed, very up to date. Best room of our 10 day trip in UK. Breakfast room, breakfast was very nice.... More

Delightful room, very spacious and clean. Welcoming owners, for whom nothing is too much trouble. Directly on the river, only five minutes walk to the city centre. Lovely, freshly cooked breakfast of choice. Good value for money, thoroughly recommended. Jacqui Lee

This was the perfect spot for our three day visit to York. Jane was great with directions and suggestions, as well as a sweet and cheerful host. Loved our airy room overlooking the river, and the daily walk through the park into town. Wonderful to be able to leave the car and walk everywhere. We especially enjoyed the two hour... More

The location was excellent. Hosts were wonderful and accommodating. Walking distance to town. Breakfast in true English style. Good recommendations were provided for dinner. Parking available which was a must. A busy place but truly gives the flavor of the area... Sitting at an outside table and on the river was a plus.... trains stop running early enough to not... More
