We stayed at Southlands last week while visiting York and it was a wonderful experience. There were three of us traveling together, so we got a triple room (the Minster Room), which can be hard to come by in the UK. It was quite comfortable and had a double bed and a single bed with an ensuite bathroom. Ron and... More

Just back from spending a lovely couple of days at York and our stay at Southlands was just excellent. We had booked on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. We could not fault anything! Beautiful room and ensuite, spacious and well appointed. Our excellent hosts Ron & Nicole were very welcoming and friendly and gave useful... More

We would both like to say a big thank you to Ron and Nicole for making us feel so welcome at Southlands. This Bed and Breakfast is finished beautifully with real attention to detail. We stayed in the Gates room which was very cosy and decorated to a very high standard with absolutely everything we could have needed for our... More

The title above really says it all! However, I have to mention the superb breakfast rated by my husband as "the best B & B breakfast ever"! Absolutely fresh and high quality fruit salad to start, a full English breakfast resembling an advert and cooked to perfection, home made bread with a selection of 3 kinds to spread with home...

what a brilliant find, the whole experience put together by Ron and Nicole outshines many 5 star hotels. Everything is immaculate with a superb breakfast to follow. Its the smaller touches that make the experience outstanding. I would certainly recommend Southlands to anyone. They certainly know how to look after their guests from booking to leaving. No problems with parking... More

We recently stayed at Southlands on an overnight break to do some shopping in York and what a brilliant place to stay it is!!! From the moment we booked Nicole and Ron were excellent to deal with. The rooms were amazingly clean and tidy and the breakfast was to die for. We had parking provided on both our days which... More

I visited on a quick trip with my Mum and we were absolutely blown away by the incredible experience offered by Ron and Nicole. The Minster room was beautifully clean and provided a warm, cosy, comfortable haven. Breakfast was mind bogglingly beautifully presented in a stunning room with candles and a warm fire. The homemade bread was fab. We had... More

Convenient location on a quiet residential street. Short walk to local shops and eating places; easy walk into the tourist center of York. Wonderful hosts, cheerful decor, clean and modern, great breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

The glowing reviews for this guest house are all accurate. The accommodation, location & food all excellent. Nicole & Ron are the perfect hosts's who willingly go the extra mile for their guests. At no notice they put a balloon & bottle of bubbles in our room when they heard it was my 60th - How thoughtful, kind & generous:... More

What a fabulous B&B! Ron and Nicole were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. Our room (Roofs) was immaculately clean and comfortable with everything we could possibly need (wifi, toiletries, TV,fantastic hospitality tray, chocolates,). We were able to park for both days at the guest house which was great considering York isn't the easiest city to park in.... More
