me and my girlfriend shared the Double room (room 1). We were immediately greeted with the offer of tea and biscuits, by the wonderfully friendly and charming hosts, karen and steve. The room had more than enough space for the two of us, with a separate toilet and shower, which was very helpful. The bed was the most comfortable bed... More

Had a night away with a group of friends and had a comfortable and enjoyable stay at Southlands. The hosts are friendly and welcoming and pay a lot of attention to little details which make the stay exceptionally good. I have stayed in lots of guest houses and would happily rate this higher than most. The breakfast is the certainly... More

All I can do is echo previous comments. Great B&B, spotless, nice extra touches such as shampoo / conditioner / sewing kit etc, home made breakfasts and nothing too mouch trouble. Good location, 15 mins amble into city centre. Loads of information available about York. We recommend the Living Room for a nice meal. Fautless - we will be back!!

My daughter and I recently stayed here for four nights. The bedrooms were immaculate. A good choice of breakfast. beautiful full english breakfast. Very efficient owners. Home from home. Have stayed here several times and the standards are always high. Walking distance to park and local shopping area. A short taxi ride from the railway station. Well worth a visit.

We spent three nights at Southlands Guest House. The location is perfect for exploring York. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Our room (3) was on the first floor. It was very comfortable, stylish and clean. The breakfast was the best I've had in a B&B with yummy fruit salad each morning (with different fruits each day!) We had... More

We stayed in this guest house for one night and found it to be one of the best we have ever stayed in! We arrived early but they were very accommodating and made sure we had a parking permit and access to the room. The room was gorgeous and we were really pleased with how helpful they were. We set...

A Black Country saying which means great, We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Southlands and would like to thank Karen and her mom for making our stay so enjoyable. The cleanliness and attention to detail would put a lot of hotels to shame. The beds were so comfortable and the little extra touches like the complimentary... More

We have just returned from a 3 day stay here and this is an absolute gem of a B&B. Everything about it is perfect. It is about a 10 minute walk into the city where all the main attractions are. From the moment you arrive you are really looked after by the lovely host Karen. Nothing is too much trouble... More

I found this guest house through Trip Advisor and it fully lived up to expectations. The attention to detail is fantastic, rooms are lovely, service is 10/10, parking outside (with parking permit) is easy, breakfast is delicious. It is a nice walk into York and is far enough away to be peaceful. We will be visiting again soon!

Great room, spotlessly clean, friendly family, top notch breakfast selection. Nice touch of being greeted with tea and biscuits too. Can't fault it - wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
