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

Steve is by far and away the best most helpful person we have come across in many years. There wasn't a thing he didn't help with during in our stay at the Birchfield from parking to returning forgotten items. (silly of me) Steve has a great friendly outgoing personality and I can see why he'd have lots of repeat custom.... More

We recently stayed at Birchfield for the Tour de France weekend. Steve was an excellent host who made us feel very welcome from our arrival through to departure and encouraged us to come and go as we pleased. Excellent map provided and recommendations given for local restaurants - one of which we visited and had a very good meal on... More

I liked the free WiFi. Our host, Steve, was friendly and welcoming and he gave us helpful information about the area. The atmosphere is the guesthouse is relaxed and... More

Location was excellent being walking distance to centre of town, host was very friendly and room was spacious; but self service breakfast options of cereal, toast and fruit with no complimentary toiletries and hard mattress mean (self certified) 4 star rating was slightly generous. Paid extra when booking for car parking even though there was free (on-street) car parking within... More
