I have stayed here twice and both times have been excellent. The breakfast is beautiful and rooms very comfortable. Highly recommend. Lovely walk along the river to centre of York. Can't fault this place. Definitely returning next year. Thank you to Janine and Steve for your hospitality

We stayed with Janine and Steve last month and were very pleased with the location, cleanliness, comfort, friendliness and breakfast. The scrambled eggs are especially nice. My food allergies were catered food meaning I could enjoy the whole breakfast experience. The Lighthorseman hotel over the road was convenient and served beautiful food at reasonable prices. We drove from Edinburgh following... More

I stayed 2 nights last month. Steve and Janine were so hospitable and helpful, from making sure my car was parked in the designated area, to carrying my bag upstairs and helping me with local bus details. My room was small and comfortable with its own bathroom. Unfortunately as in most UK establishments the shower is over the bath, a... More

Janice and Steve were lovely hosts and went out there way to make the stay enjoyable. Everything was lovely and clean and the breakfast was just perfect and a good selection. Just one small fault which didn'the spoil the stay at all was that the double bed was 2 singles put together with a double mattress. This caused a ridge... More

Chelmsford Place does all that a B&B should and a little bit more. It's good value, clean, comfortable and provides a well cooked breakfast. (Scrambled eggs recommended!) We received an E mail before our trip giving clear instructions about how to get from the station by bus or taxi. On arrival we were provided with a map showing the short... More

Stayed 3 nights whilst exploring York, Knaresborough and Harrogate. Ticked all boxes, clean, comfortable, and very welcoming hosts. The breakfast was perfect, full English! Nothing negative whatsoever, would certainly stay again on another visit.
