We stayed here for a wedding last weekend and didn't want to leave! Southlands is the most beautiful guesthouse and you can really tell that Ron and Nicole, the owners, take pride in their business. They were friendly and welcoming and we had a car parking space waiting for us - no small thing in York! We had the Rooves... More

Our hosts, Ron and Nicole, were top notch. Warm, friendly, gracious even with our unexpected early arrival. Every detail, from first communication, to car parking, baggage handling, restaurant recommendations, and the house itself met our highest expectations. Only a five minute stroll to city center, the guest house is in a quiet neighborhood, and beautifully maintained. My husband and I... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a couple of nights at Southlands. Nicole and Ron are perfect hosts, so nice, friendly and helpful with excellent recommendations about where to eat out. We were made to feel so welcome on our arrival and were offered a lovely cafetiere of coffee once we'd settled in. Our room was spotless, as was our en suite bathroom. There... More

This B&B makes you feel like you are at home. With only four rooms, it is easy for the owners, Nicole and Ron, to talk with the guests. Our room was clean and spacious and came with some water and milk in the fridge as well as cookies and chocolates. The owners were so accommodating and gave us wonderful recommendations... More

From the initial phone call to make our booking we were impressed. Ron and Nicole were friendly, helpful and welcoming and we loved all the small touches from fresh milk in the room to delicious home made jams at breakfast. The room was spotless and provided everything we needed for our stay, we would highly recommend.

This is a lovely guesthouse with high standards of accommodation and breakfast. The room, Gates, was nicely furnished with a very comfy bed and lovely bed linen and curtains. The room also had a small fridge with bottled water and fresh milk. Not only that, but there were some welcoming chocolates and attractive-looking biscuits in a jar. Breakfast was excellent... More

Southlands was our first stop on a walking trip in Yorkshire. We stayed in many B&B's, but this one was the best. We were made to feel very welcome and Ron and Nicole could not have been more helpful. The house was immaculate but was also relaxing. Food was great and there was plenty of it. Southlands was also very... More
