Just returned from another excellent weekend in York. As always we stayed at the Chelmsford Place Guest House because, quite simply, it's impossible to find a fault. Steve and Janine are two wonderful people who go out of their way to make sure that you enjoy your stay. Breakfast is first class with a wide variety to suit all tastes... More

Booked a double en-suite room for 2 nights at Chelmsford Place. This was our first stay in York - Janine and Steve welcomed us and gave us a map of the area. Janine had a parking permit ready for when we arrived - parking was directly outside of the B&B. The room was lovely and clean and was a nice... More

We called first thing on Monday morning after driving up from Bedford. We were lucky to get a room and we were able to park our car (definitely needed in York!) and go out for the day. We came back in the evening to our room (Room 2). Comfortable bed, beautiful big ensuite! Breakfast is excellent, omelette is amazing. Compliments... More

We stayed for 4 nights here. Had a great breakfast every day. Janine and Steve with the help of Sue couldn't do enough to help us. A very pleasant stay, and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again or recommend to anyone.

Just returned from a 2 night stay, we cannot rate the experience highly enough. Great rooms, service, hosts and spotlessly clean. I stay in a lot of hotels through work, it's fair to say I forgot just how good B&Bs can be! Fantastic all around, the big chains and plc hotels could learn a lot from the Chelmsford it was... More

We zijn net terug van vakantie. We hebben 3 nachten geslapen. Steve en Janine zijn heel vriendelijk, Janine heeft ons warm ontvangen, iedereen is behulpzaam. We kregen gelijk informaties en goede tips. Ontbijt is lekker en vers. Lokatie is geweldig. 10 min lopen naar de stad langs de rivier. Kamers zijn schoon en aangenaam. Helaas waren suite kamers niet beschikbaar... More

Stayed in a family room, 3 adults, suited us just fine! Steve and Janine are charming hosts who took care of us very well! Beautiful breakfasts. Our special dietary needs we're looked after. Very thoughtful and kind. Clean and tidy! Hoping to return one day, and can recommend the Chelmsford Arms.
