After lots of searching on the net I found the Foss Bank Guest House - and what a find it turned out to be. Spotlessly clean throughout, the nicest bedroom you could wish for and Kevin who is simply the most amazing host (nothing too much trouble and everything done with a smile) and who also cooks the best breakfast...

My wife and I have visited York several times, seems like there's always something new to see. We've always stayed in hotels before, some with parking, some without. This time we thought we'd try a b&b for a change, well what a pleasant suprise the Foss Bank turned out to be. Clean, free parking, quiet and comfortable and with great... More

I took my girlfriend to york for her birthday and stayed at the Foss Bank Guest House for the weekend. We felt really well looked after and the quality of the accommodation was well above that of what I thought. It's not far from York city center and within 5 minutes you're at the York minister. I would definitely recommend... More

Just spent 3 great days revisiting York and it was made even better because of our stay at Foss Bank. Could not fault it and would recommend it without hesitation. Kevin was the perfect host; from being a true gent carrying our bags (for two ladies who do not travel light!) to our room on the 2nd floor, to providing... More

We loved our room at this lovely guest house, and Kevin made sure everything was just right. Breakfast was super. We had hoped to stay 3 nights but he only had a room for two of them. He found us a room at the guest house next door for the third night and even moved our car and luggage over... More

Kevin and Val are the perfect hosts - the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast simply scrumptuous. This quiet location is only a short walk from the centre of York, ideal for our 3-night stay.

Clean rooms, excellent beds and a great breakfast. In spite of all this the best thing about Foss bank is the service. As has already been said Kevin manages to ensure that you have what you want whilst not being intrusive - wonderful!
