We arrived on the day of the Tour de Yorkshire and didn't know how we would get to the property with all the road closures. Ruth was incredibly helpful on the phone before and we got there without problem and found a parking space right outside - the parking permit you get with the room is a great help! Although... More

We stayed for one night after a late booking. Communication via email was great, information was very clear and easily to follow. Arrived to a personalised bag of city information on our door, lovely clean room. Perfect little touches such as proper cups and wifi, oh and the breakfast……… fantastic! Unsure at first but really enjoyed everything, going to attempt... More

We stayed at The Staymor on Good Friday for just one night having found it so difficult to find accommodation for a night. Ruth the owner was very helpful and allowed us to stay. We had the family room and my in-laws the king size bedroom which were both very clean and comfortable. We loved the idea of self-check in... More

I stayed here with a friend for a weekend away and we had a great time! The owners of this B&B had thought of everything and were incredibly friendly, which made our stay very welcome and comfortable! Breakfast in bed was a brilliant touch and the food was delicious!! The hotel is in an ideal location too, about 10-15 minutes... More

Visited for a city break, and had such a lovely time! Ruth & Rob were so kind and welcoming, and the amazing breakfasts they provided really set us up well for the day. It's brilliant location is a 10 minute walk (if that) into the city centre and we walked from the train station on arrival. You're also in a... More

Good overnight stay. We were right at the top of the house in the family room. Beds super comfortable with quality bedding. Quiet street, so no noise to keep us awake. Breakfast was unique. A whole tray full of goodies, the best bit being the Bircher! Don't knock it till you've tried it. Effortless check out. Improvements are being done... More
