We stayed at Foss Bank for two nights. Our room faced the garden at the rear, and was quiet and comfortable; the bed was larger than a standard double so there was plenty of room. Kevin was very friendly and helpful and gave us good advice on places to eat in York. Breakfast was tasty & plentiful, with a lot... More

We continue to visit Foss Bank each year when we visitYork for the races. Kev and Val are always fabulous hosts, very welcoming and have thought of every tiny detail to make sure our stay is relaxing and comfortable. The rooms are beautifully done, beds and pillows extremely comfortable, our shower was brilliant and linen and towels are really good... More

From his reply to my initial enquiry to carrying my suitcase to the taxi, on leaving, Kevin was the perfect host and Foss Bank was the perfect location. Spotlessly clean accommodation in a quiet setting approx. 10 mins walk from York Minster. Breakfast menu and service excellent. Generous supply of teas/coffee/biscuits in room. Fresh milk daily on request. Even offered... More

We have recently enjoyed two fantastic nights at the Foss Bank Guest House, ideally located within a short walking distance of York Centre, our hosts looked after us tremendously. I would highly recommend it. We are planning our next visit there as soon as possible. Russ & Lisa from Sheffield.

Our party of 6 visited York to attend the 'The 16' concert at the Minster and to spend a day at the races. Great stay at Foss Bank, lovely breakfast and friendly host, Kevin. Only downside was the hangover after our night out in town. 'You never learn' said Kevin with a cheeky grin the next morning!! Thanks, Kevin..we will... More

Very friendly and helpful. Car can be safely left at the property. The city is near by. Breakfast can more or less what you want and any problems you may have Kevin will try his best to sort. Rooms are clean and comfortable.

A very warm welcome from Kevin who was the perfect host. We had a lovely stay in a great location - less than 10 minute work into the centre of York. Our room was very clean and comfortable despite Kevin apologising for it being the small double room however it was a lovely size with plenty of room. Bed was... More

Stayed Wednesday and Thursday night this week. As ever, Kevin was the perfect host. He recommended somewhere for an evening meal, it turned out to be a gem of a family run Italian restaurant just 10 minutes walk. Foss Bank is ideally situated for walking to all points in York. Great breakfasts free parking too! A rarity in York.
