We stayed at the Southlands for two nights and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The innkeepers Ron and Nicole are extemely friendly and knowledgeable about York and the environs. Our room was spotless and breakfast was superb. Price was reasonable and location is in a desireable neighborhood outside the city walls but close enough to get to... More

We had a very warm welcome by the owners. They were very helpful. Nice room, good location. You can walk through the park to the city centre. Breakfast was very good. We can recommend this B&B to everyone who wants to visit beautiful York!

On arrival Ron and Nicole were the perfect hosts. The Roofs room we had was wonderful. They were both very informative about what to do and see in York. Breakfast was brilliant with a good chice. The thing that makes this B&B exceptional is all the little personal touches that Ron and Nicole provide for guests. Outstanding.

We had a fantastic weekend break here. The couple that run it are totally dedicated to providing the best service possible. From the warm welcome to the friendly goodbye, they are attentive at every step. The building is very tastefully finished and spotless. We plan to return and would highly recommend it.

From the moment we arrived, our experience began. Ian came out to greet us and to help us park with pass, case carrying and a cheery smile. This set the tone for a lovely overnight stay. Nicole and Ian gave my daughter and I lots of useful info on York, geared around celebrating my daughter's birthday. That information helped make... More

Everyone who stays here will love the friendly and warm welcome from your hosts. They will make you feel at home immediately, and added to that the warmth and comfort of the rooms provided are the added bonus. You are situated off Bishopthorpe Road, so the location is quiet, and there are shops and local restaurants nearby. Having said that... More

Owners Ron and Nicole are wonderful hosts; warm, friendly and attentive. They made us feel most welcome on arrival, gave us lots of useful information about local eateries, events and amenities, not to mention places of interest. As well as lots of little extra touches in the room, on learning that it was my birthday, we returned later that day... More

We had a lovely stay at this wonderful B&B. Nicole and Ron are great hosts very welcoming and provide a very good breakfast. The B&B is in a perfect position, a short stroll from York centre. Perfect.

In short nothing could have improved our stay. This is an excellent B&B, we had a warm welcome, a lovely room and exceptional breakfast. Nicole & Ron couldn't have been more helpful arranging extra parking for us and giving us helpful local information.
