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

The best B&B in York is run by Kevin, The Foss Bank, we arrived early which was not a problem. We had room 2 with a lovely ensuite, a comfy bed, fresh milk on the tea tray, and everything was clean neat and tidy, and as the room is at the back it was also nice and quite. Nothing is... More

Stayed for 2 nights for my 50th birthday and and could not fault it. Arrived much earlier than expected and the owner Kevin was more than happy for us to leave the car in the private car for the day before checking in and even after checking out. The room was spacious, lovely comfy bed and en suite with big... More

Treated so well, as always, Kevin the owner is willing to help in any way he can, including carrying cases upstairs. Lovely room ,2 is my favourite, comfy bed, very quiet, and then waking to an excellent breakfast all freshly prepared. Kevin also has huge knowledge of York and can give directions to any point of interest. Foss Bank is... More
