Our 4th visit to Foss Bank Guest House and as usual a warm and friendly welcome. Home from home. I have difficulty getting up stairs but we had no need to worry. Kevin took the cases from the car up to our room and gave us a nice welcoming coffee. As usual we had an excellent breakfast and very comfortable... More

Stayed here several times and again in November it was simply second to none. Kevin really looks after you with superb breakfasts and excellent rooms. The free car park is a bonus when parking in York is over £10 per day

We have stayed at Foss Bank numerous times and each time it is even better than the last. From arrival where Kevin helps us with our luggage and getting us fresh milk for a cup of tea. To rooms which are well equipped with more than you could want: an iPod dock, hot choc sachets and lovely comfortable beds. Breakfast... More

I have stayed here 3 times and Kevin has made us feel extremely welcome, nothing is a problem. He even put the heating on for us in the day and my first morning I asked for an extra cup for my green tea and the next morning I arrived for breakfast and he had put an extra cup down. I... More

We've stayed in a quite few B&Bs in York over the last 3 years but Foss Bank is without question the best! It's our first choice when booking accommodation in York. Super location just 5 to 10 minutes walk to Monksgate. We've stayed in most of Foss Bank's rooms over the years, all are beautifully presented, well equipped and very... More

I stayed at Foss Bank for two nights. This guest house is beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. I was made to feel very welcome; nothing was too much trouble for Kevin. The room contained everything I might need. Breakfast was delicious and included a generous portion of fresh fruit. It was a convenient five minute walk to to centre of... More

We stayed here for one night with our six year old son. We had a room with a double and a (proper) single bed, rather than the camp bed which is often provided for children. It was a good size, beautifully clean with ensuite shower room. Thoughtful extras included real wine glasses and a corkscrew in the room - bless... More

Our first visit to Foss Bank, and we were not disappointed. Booking was seamless and efficient, and Kevin proved to be as good a host as he was when arranging the booking. Our room was spacious, well-appointed, comfortable and spotless. Breakfast was excellent, with a good choice of cereals, fresh fruit, juices, and much more, not to mention a very... More

Having stayed in many hotels & B&B's in York, Foss Bank is my favourite. Kevin is friendly & very efficient. The twin room is light, airy, spotlessly clean with comfortable beds. The breakfast is fresh & delicious. Cannot fault, keep up the good work.
