We just stayed for a night. It was incredibly welcoming and the owner was so keen to help us. Room was beautifully clean. Would have liked a shower over the bath and not just a bath. Breakfast could have been a little better.

Fabulous, made to feel welcome, a real home from home. We stayed here for 7 nights .The accommodation was first class and Steve is a brilliant funny down to earth guy. He was very helpful and he very kindly drove us to the train station on our last morning.We would definitely come back here again for another wee break.Highly recommended,

As has been said many times, Steve is extremely helpful and provides a lot of insight into the best places to eat in York (as an example). The experience far exceeds that to be had in budget hotel chains. The location... More

Stayed in the Minster room for 2 nights. It was a lovely room, well put together and quiet. The cereal and toast bar suited us well as it's all we need to set us up for a day. Steve was very helpful, giving us a map and showing us where places to go for food were as we arrived late... More
