From the moment Ron and Nicole greeted us at the front door to the final tasty breakfast and fond farewell, we could not have been more comfortable and well cared for. Truly a relaxed and enjoyable stay with everything you could ask for and more. Our hosts were thoughtful and attentive from the moment I first made an inquiry via... More

Yet again an excellent stay at a superb B&B. From arrival to departure we could not have been dealt with in a more friendly and accommodating manner. Ron and Nicole put their heart and soul into ensuring that their guests have a fantastic experience.Beautiful rooms, fantastic food and ideal location all to be highly recommended.

Once again an enjoyable stay with Ron and Nicole. Their hospitality was excellent, with nothing too much trouble. Accommodation was of the consistently high standard I've come to expect; comfortable welcoming rooms with everything you could possibly need,even a nice cup of tea immediately on arrival. York was lovely with visits to new attractions recommended by Ron and Nicole. This... More

My boyfriend and I came to stay at Southlands for the second time, and it was was just as brilliant as the last time. Lovely clean room, comfy bed and delicious breakfasts! (I love the raspberry jam!). What makes Southlands the best though, is Ron and Nicole! They are just such nice people and it's lovely to chat with them!... More

Our arrival at Southlands was brilliant. Nicole and Ron welcomed us into their beautiful B&B and we had reserved parking right out the front. The rooms were so comfortable and well appointed and the gourmet breakfasts were an added bonus. We would discuss our plans and take the advice of these York ambassadors as to our itinerary. We could have... More

This was our first visit to this lovely B & B and certainly wont be our last. From our first enquiry via email and subsequent phone call we knew we had chosen the right place. Ron & Nicole were extremely helpful and accommodating. On arrival we were greeted by them both and Ron took our cases to our room. Nicole... More

Super location, a short walk from York Castle Museum, the train station and city centre. On street parking right outside (free with permit from B&B). We will be visiting... More

We stayed at Southland for 3 nights at the Gates room. It is well equipped, comfy and quiet. Love the vibe and decor, and also the little fridge - where we had complimentary bottled water and milk every day! Ron and Nicole cooked us delicious breakfast of our own choice in the morning. They are very helpful and caring couple,... More

We (me, wife and sister in law) have just returned from a 3 night stay with Ron and Nicole at Southlands. You can see just why this is the number 1 rated B&B on Trip Advisor for York. Our rooms were very comfortable and beautifully appointed. Breakfast was a real treat with great choices of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt and... More
