In a perfect river view location, Abbey Guest house is a beautifully presented BnB that we will definitely visit again! Once you park your car there you don't need to drive again; a walk over the bridge takes you to the fab National railway museum or walk the other way and there you straight into the city of York with...

We stayed for a couple of nights recently, would have been more but we couldn't get in as long as we hoped,[ moral-book early]. We were greeted as old friends having stayed before since the new proprietors took over. We found that they have kept up the standards of Alec and Jill and have put their own brand on the... More

We had one of the front rooms so enjoyed the view of the river. The room was tight but handsome and comfortable and the bathroom was small but well designed. Location is excellent for arriving by train and visiting the city. Breakfast was very good 'though the system of setting time for your breakfast unusual. We had an early train... More

I walked from the train station with my roll along and back pack in about 10 minutes. Easy, just across the River Ouse bridge. I was greeted at the door by Jane and offered tea and a brownie. My room was in the back, overlooking the parking lot, and up a rather steep flight of stairs. (The only drawback that... More

Do not let the bad reviews from over a year ago and beyond affect your decision. This has been under new ownership since then. Location is convenient from the train station (10 to 20 min walk depending on your speed). Close to the town walls and did I mention that it is on the river? There are 2 room that... More

A lovely b&b by the river. About 10 mins stroll along the river to the town centre. Park close by too. We stayed in the front room so over looking the river, & the room was very nice, clean & comfy. Owners very nice, & breakfast lovely. A peacefully hotel to unwind. Will defo be returning.

Clean, warm, close to city center, close to railway station, excellent treatment, a complete and good breakfast. A perfect place to stay a few days in York. Although there is a train near, no bother at all.

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
