Can't fault the hotel, food or the hosts . Breakfast was spot on . What a great place . The Hotel is spotless . Ideal location for the Apollo Festival and only a ten minute walk into the city . Already booked for next year !

Steve and Tricia made us feel most welcome. We stayed in the Wisteria room; it was cozy and decorated nicely. The bed was very comfortable. Bathroom clean. Towels fluffy. Breakfast was delicious, and had a nice variety. Service was FANTASTIC. The location of the Bloomsbury was perfect. It was in a quiet location, but within easy walking distance from the... More

My partner and I stayed here in July for a Sunday/Monday. Steve was very accommodating in allowing me to drop off my bags at 10.15 just when it’s busy for checking out, but it was no trouble. Later my partner turned up at 12.15 she dropped off his bags and again this was fine with them as our room wasn’t... More

This is simply the best B&B we have ever had the pleasure of visiting. From the moment I rang to book Steve was so helpful. The room was gorgeous. So clean and luxurious. The bed so comfortable. Breakfast was home cooked to order and full of top quality ingredients. Nothing is a compromise here; all done to perfection. Many thanks... More

Steve and Tricia made us and all the other guests very welcome. Our room was exactly what we wanted to celebrate our anniversary. The breakfast was first class as was the atmosphere in the dining room. The centre of York is easily accessible from The Bloomsbury, either via a regular bus service or a very pleasant walk along the the... More

The room was clean and looked nice. Food was great, a good selection with options available. The staff were friendly and helpful, It wasn't too far from the town center and they had all kinds of leaflets available for those interested. Good prices. Would stay there again. (Some of the furniture there has some real history! Ask them about it... More

Steve and Tricia made us feel welcome from the outset with a pot of tea on arrival. The room was spacious with a lounge , bath and huge comfortable bed. My wife especially enjoyed the Vegemite available at the exceptional breakfast spread. They were forthcoming with lots of travel advice which made it easier to get around York. Thanks Steve... More

We stayed at the Bloomsbury for 2 nights in August and cannot find any fault. Tricia and Steve made us welcome from the start. The Bloomsbury is ideally situated a short walk from the city centre either via the road straight to the Minster or by walking along the river. The rooms are large light and airy, the beds comfy....

A great setting, with great hosts and a great breakfast. We had never stayed in York before and Steve greeted us on our arrival with a map of the city. He then explained our travel options and the top attractions in and around the city. We were then showed to our room, Peony which is a top floor room and... More
