Our room was spacious, clean, charming and with all the amenities of a 5 Star Hotel. Large tub/shower fast wifi comfy bed and lots of room. Kevin goes out of his way to make your stay the best. The breakfast is top notch and so filling with farm fresh eggs and great coffee and tea. Close to the main gate... More

We stayed here for 2 nights with our 11 month old son. Kevin welcomed us in to our room, which was spotless! We had to bring our own travel cot, but after a little shuffling it fit in the room perfectly. Lovely big bath for our boy and a great shower. Great to be asked if we wanted fresh milk... More

Breakfast each morning was excellent. The location was extremely convenient, involving a 10 minute stroll to the city centre. There was limited private parking to the... More

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

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.
