I stayed in the single room which quite honestly was most uncomfortable. The bed creaked, there was no duvet just a sheet, the basin was maroon and cracked, the door wouldn't lock or shut properly and I don't think I got a wink of sleep because the mattress was so uncomfortable. Breakfast was satisfactory but unfortunately the bread had visible... More

Hosts very welcoming and really helpful. However had attic room at top and to say the least very basic, poorly decorated and very small.Very central to York and local facilities. Breakfast good and served by a very nice lady.

Greeted at the door and the wonderful service didn't stop for my 2 night stay, an old building with lots of charm. Only a 10 minute easy walk to Yorks main centre. Full English breakfast was delicious, Thank you Chris and Terese for making my stay so enjoyable.

I really loved staying here, it was a beautiful building in a great location (just a short walk from York City centre). The bathrooms are shared but this is made clear in the hotel booking information. For the location it's a great price. Our room had a view of the York Minster and was really warm, a great size and...

I stayed here for a weekend in January 2015. The owners were friendly and welcoming. While I had only booked a single room, the owners offered me a double at no extra cost because larger rooms were still available when I arrived. The room was basic but tidy and comfortable; well worth the money paid. Really pleased with the location,... More

We stayed two nights for the Jorvik festival. Five minute walk from the city walls. We had a huge attic room with a view of the cathedral. Warm room, with television and toilet outside. Shower room one floor below. Very welcoming and obliging. Lovely breakfast, full English, cereals toast and tea/coffee. Would definitely stay again.

Needed an overnight stop in York and found this accommodation at the last minute. I was told over the telephone when I booked that this is a "no frills establishment," ( i.e. no en suite rooms ) so arrived with no great expectations, however the couple who own it are very friendly and welcoming, the room was basic but clean...

its a real shame this is how our stay ended up, when we arrived we were met with such kindness albeit the guest house stunk of cigarette smoke, the room was dated yet acceptable for 1 night, smelt of strong dettol in the room, shared bathroom which for £64 was a bit cheeky considering we booked an ensuite and the...

We stayed two nights at this B&B and found our hosts very friendly and helpful. The location is within walking distance to the center of York. It is a B&B where you pay for what you get. While everything was 'surface' clean it would have been good to have had the floors vacuumed in our room prior to our staying... More
