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.

Stayed at the Foss Bank B & B in early June and was very impressed with whole place. Room was large well equipped with tea and coffee etc. Would stay again and highly recommend it for service excellent location 10 – 15 min walk to the minster. Only draw back is the very tight parking at the rear.

I have stayed here with my husband on numerous occastions, and we have always been delighted, and would never consider anywhere else in York to stay. This guest House is exceptional in every way, and the breakfasts set you up for the day - always individually prepared to each guests requirements. Kevin and Val are always willing to help with...

First, we ended up planning our 1 day trip to York on a horse race weekend so every place was booking for 2 nights only. Richard was the ONLY place that offered to let us stay 1 night. His place was perfect. The en-suite was large and very comfortable and extremely clean.It overlooked the garden. Had a comfortable king size... More

We have been coming to see Kevin & Val for almost 15 years. This is by far the most welcoming guest house me and my partner have stayed in. The hosts cannot do enough for you and give excellent advice on places to visit in York from eateries to attractions. The house is stunning and absolutely spotless with attention to... More

We chose the guest house based on feedback from trip adviser and it didn't disappoint. Good value with reasonable sized rooms. Good attentive service with helpful suggestions on the city. Would stay again.

This is the first B&B we stay in the UK (which is our first trip there) and it is such a wonderful stay even it is just one night. One of the B&Bs which ticks the Yes boxes! Comfortable, clean, big room, good breakfast, etc. and the list goes on. There is a very cosy guest room which we do... More

A thoroughly delightful experience, a charming host for whom nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and had probably had the most comfortable bed I have come across in any Hotel or Guest House ever. The breakfast can only be described as excellent.

Stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend between work travels. It is an ideal base to see around York with only a 10 minute walk to the city centre. I was made very welcome - even though I arrived early in the afternoon and was looked after well throughout my stay. The room was small but adequate - I... More
