Me and my partner stayed here overnight at the beginning of September. It's in a great location as it's just a 10/15 minute walk into the centre of York. There's a local shop at the end of the road too incase you need to pick anything up. We staying in the Jorvik room which was spotless, very spacious and nicely... More

I booked his guest house based on the photos on the booking website. However, the room is nothing like the photos so be warned. Birchfield says it is 10 mins from York centre but it takes longer than that to walk there. Taking a car means you have to deal with the lack of parking in the city so its... More

Stayed for 3 nights, the room was spotlessly clean and welcoming, had all we needed. Well presented. We stayed in stonebow which was a good sized room. We didn't use the breakfast included due to having a lie in in the very comfy bed. About 15 min walk to the edge of town but wasn't a prob at all and... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend at the end of August. The guest house is handily located about a 10 minute walk into York centre. The room was spot on - we stayed in Castle on the top floor, which was quite small but cosy, well fitted and nicely decorated. I was most impressed with the landlord, Steve and his staff.... More

My partner and I stayed at Birchfield guest house for our anniversary. Even though we stayed at the busiest time of year due to the races, nothing seemed rushed or too much trouble. It has a brilliant location, close enough to the town centre that I could still walk it, even whilst heavily pregnant. Steve couldn't have been more genuine,... More

Did feel a little bit disappointed after reading so many brilliant reviews. The room was quite small but was informed by Steve it is better to order through him to get the "best room", I think that's a little unfair, why should you get a lesser room because you book online? Also found it a bit strange having to pay... More

emailusdirect, Owner at Birchfield Guest House, responded to this review

“Unfair” ? Well, these guests knowingly booked a small room, and further, I wrote them confirming that it was a small room. Only after leaving, they complain online (not to us), that it is “unfair” they were given a small room. The fact is that booking direct. with us, means we don't pay agents fees. Would it be more fair,... More

We arrived 20 minutes late but Steve was sitting waiting in the breakfast room to greet us. He then produced a tourist map of York and outlined the best routes in and out of town and several restaurant recommendations which we found very useful. The room was beautiful and the bed was REALLY comfy. Steve was really friendly and even... More
