Birchfield Guest House really IS within walking distance of the old City walls, especially with a route pointed out by the very helpful owner, Steve. Our room was larger than expected, with the aforementioned really good bed. After 2 weeks of "full English Breakfasts" we were quite happy to have the simple cereal-and-toast breakfast bar. Steve went to additional trouble... More

This was a very good, comfortable place to stay. In the inflated ratings in York, this 4 star rating may seem low, but it was very good. We stayed in the smallest room which was on the ground floor. The owner warned us that is was small when we called but it actually was quite comfortable for 2 people. The... More

Within wakling distance of York city centre(about 10 mins). There is a bus stop but we preferred to walk. Stevie (owner) couldn't have been more helpful. Supplied us with a... More

We recently stayed at the Birchfield for two nights, once we had booked we received an e-mail confirmation explaining about the parking, owner Steve would arrange a space for our car once we had advised him of our arrival time.This was only £5, saving us the high cost and hassle of parking in York. The room was lovely, neat and... More

Had a great stay at Birchfield, a fine guesthouse. The room was spacious and very tidy and the location is excellent as was our host Steve,(even though he's a United fan) who would bend over backwards to help his guests out. I would recommend this place to all who wish to visit York.

We spent 2 nights here as we were going to the races on the Sat. Our top floor room was lovely (even if it was like an oven but no one can help the hot muggy weather we have had this weekend).I daren't mention the bedding!! Lol .We took our own fan just in case there wasn't one and then... More

Very enjoyable stay. Spotless accommodation in a good location. Comfy bed and good shower. Breakfast is as stated I.e. cereals, toast, fruit bread, porridge, juice, tea and coffee. The owner, Steve is a really nice guy and is attentive to making sure everything is just right. Booked a parking space with Steve which saved us £55.00!!! Very good b&b. Thanks... More

This is a great place to stay in a most useful location, only 10 mins from city centre etc. Steve is a great, genial host and most helpful, having exchanged a number of emails before our stay. He recommended a number of things to do and places to eat etc and they have all been great. If we came to... More

We have just returned from The Birchfield Guest House. Just a short walk to either end of York from it's location. Also only a short walk to York Racecourse. We received a very warm welcome from Steve, who took time to mark places of interest on a map. Plus some lovely places to eat. The Guest House and our room... More
