We spent 2 nights here in August....Abey is in a great location 5 mins from city centre yet away from the noise of the city....great selection at breakfast and quality produce used...very friendly staff and clean fresh rooms....the only drawback was the bed being over 6ft my feet touched the foot board and the room was a little tight so...

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope that you will come back soon! We do have one room with a superking size bed which suits our taller visitors - so don't forget to ask for that one next time and that should eradicate the problems that you experienced. Best wishes. More

The location of this little guest house can't be bettered. Right on the waterfront, by a bridge to the station, a minute from a great pub and a short walk from the city centre, with free parking, it's a gem. However, you MUST listen carefully to the directions the owners give you. The area it's set in is a maze... More

We arrived early and left our luggage, while we walked into York. When we came back our luggage had been taken to our room, and what a beautiful room it was, with an extremely comfortable four poster bed and overlooking the river. The Guest House was exceptional and both Gill and Alec went out of their way to give us... More

I spent a few days sightseeing around York, staying at the Abbey Guest House. Excellent service, good hearty breakfasts, and a beautiful view out the dining room overlooking the river. It is an easy walk to old downtown York, and there is a convenient footbridge over the river to the railway station. Gill and Alec are wonderful hosts. P.S. Take... More

This B&B is write by the river in York and is very quiet with lovely viws from the upstairs bedroom. We had a four-poster bed which was very comfortable. The hosts were very welcoming and the breakfast very nice indeed. There is plenty of parking behind the guesthouse and it is closely situated to motorway access

Arrived with ease thanks to the directions given to us by the owners, to be greeted with a pot of tea and a slice of homemade cake! Great location, 5 minute walk from York Centre. Near to railway line but we hardly noticed the noise of the trains. Beautifully decorated room, we had one of the Four Poster rooms with... More

This B&B has to be the best we have stayed in during our travels. The location is superb, within easy reach of the railway station, and once you've settled into your comfortable room it is just a short stroll to all the sites of York. There was a warm welcome from our host with a pot of tea, a slice... More
