Have used the very excellent Foss Bank B&B for some years now after some very bad experiences elsewhere in York. Foss Bank has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is very close to York Minster and the surounding Shambles. Possibly the easiest side of York to enjoy. Kevin, the amiable host, knows the town and the area well.... More

Excellent accommodation, cosy and warm throughout the house. Bedroom and ensuite bathroom spotlessly clean with soft towels and comfy bed. Breakfast delicious. Great having the use of such a comfortable lounge. Very convenient for walking into town. Welcoming host and we felt very much at home there, just a shame we were not able to stay the week!! Will be... More

I stayed at Foss Bank House in September 2013 when my friend and I were cycling the Way of the Roses. As the hospitality shown by Kevin was very good, the rooms spacious and spotlessly clean, and breakfast was excellent. I booked again for March 2014 and I went back with my husband who equally found the facilities excellent.

I have stayed at Foss Bank a few times now. It's always my first choice when I visit York. It's just a short walk from the town centre, but away from the noise. I'm always made to feel at home and the breakfast is lovely - all locally sourced. I would recommend Foss Bank to anyone in need of a... More

We have just got back from a lovely w.end in York and stayed at Foss House B and B. We can highly recommend this B & B. Our bedroom with en suite was excellent and everything and more you could possibly need with some nice little touches. . The full English breakfast was first class. You can expect a nice... More

Very friendly owners, excellent room, spacious and clean. Little things like make up removal pads impressed my other half. Lots of little extra's in the room just add to the overall rating. Separate toilets on each level. Great Breakfast, parking behind the house. Close to town but still very quiet for a good nights sleep.

My husband and I stayed at the Foss Bank Guest House in November 2012. Our son and his wife live in York and had just had a baby. We selected this B&B because it has good ratings and was only a few blocks from our son's home. We loved it. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was great.... More

We would be very happy to stay any time in this nice guesthouse, with welcoming owners, high standard of comfort, peaceful sleep and a yummy breakfast, all within a short walk to Monk Bar, the Minster, and York centre. Hard to fault, a small decor makeover in our bedroom and en suite would have earned 5 stars! (which I hardly... More

Very well thought out and presented grumpiest house - tastefully decorated and clean with all creature comforts provided!(Even fresh milk in a flask for in room teas and coffees!) With a short (5 mins) walk to the city walls and 10 mins to the minster, it is well located. Kevin was a friendly and helpful host, and the breakfast was... More
