This a fantastic b & b in York. Owners can't do enough for you. The rooms are pristine, with every extra you need. Breakfast is first class. On the whole a first class place to stay and thoroughly recommended.

We just returned from a trip to the UK which included a 3 night stay at Southlands. We wish we could have stayed longer, but our itinerary wouldn't permit it. Ron and Nicole treated less like paying guests and more like family. The rooms were very comfortable, clean, and large. The food wonderful, especially the rustic bread - we should... More

Just back from a stay at Southlands and I can honestly say its one of the best Guest Houses I have ever stayed in, my dad is still raving about it. The rooms are spotlessly clean and have everything in them that all you really need to do is turn up! Lots of different teas, coffees and even toiletries, these... More

After a terrible stay somewhere else the night before, we were thrilled that Ron and Nicole were able to accommodate us a night early. We were even more thrilled once we arrived and saw how nice their guesthouse is and how welcoming they both are. We couldn't have chosen a better place! The rooms were immaculate and tastefully decorated. I'm... More

Stayed for 1 night as part of our annual race day visit. Arranged an early check in to accommodate the start of the races which was no problem to the owners, Ron & Nicole. Parking is directly outside the B&B which is really convenient and a short walk to both the town centre and York Racecourse. We usually stay on... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for the races. We have stayed in York many times but this is the first time with Ron & Nicole at The Southlands and we can say we will be returning to stay with them again. From the time of our arrival until we left both Nicole and Ron made us... More

Beautiful property in a quiet area 20 minutes walk to the centre of York. My wife and I took our 16 year old grandson so we had the family room, which was ideal, well decorated, clean and with a fridge stocked with water and milk. A large en-suite shower completed this very spacious room. Ron and Nicole were very welcoming... More

My husband and I stayed only for 1 night in York. The Southlands is in a lovely peaceful area but not far from the centre, which is a lovely walk past the numerous shops and eateries along Bishopthorpe Road which is a buzzing little area. Ron and Nicole made us feel very welcome. The rooms are lovely - very spacious,... More

My partner and I stayed at Southlands on the 12/13 June but we were not strangers to the southlands having stayed there many times when Steve and Karen ran it and standards were certainly high,so when we booked and discovered someone had taken over,namely Ron and Nicole we wondered if the same attention to detail would be reached. But we... More
