Fabulous describes our recent three night stay at Southlands. Our hosts Nicole and Ron helped in making the stay both comfortable and relaxing. Their attention to detail in the well appointed rooms and delicious breakfast menu was worthy of their star rating. We manged to pack into a very short time a number of trips and visits in York recommended... More

Spent an amazing two nights with Ron and Nicole at southlands. The gates room was perfect and a great location to explore the city. Breakfast is to die for with an amazing selection of cereals, juice, yogurts and fresh fruit salad.....not to mention the cooked breakfast with sess the highlight! Hope to be back soon.

This was a lucky dip off the internet - and how lucky were we. Ron & Nicole are super hosts. The hotel is Victorian but they've made it light, airy,clean crisp. bright - and friendly. Full English breakfast as good as I've had anywhere and my wife thought the scrambled eggs & salmon was the best she's ever had (and... 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

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
