The Bloomsbury was exactly what I wanted from a guesthouse stay. Friendly and welcoming owners Paul and Matthew clearly love what they do and share their enjoyment with their guests. Matthew was always ready to give advice or tips on where to go and what to do or just to have a bit of a chat. The room I stayed... More

Was greeted by Mat who welcomed like friends. A welcome cup of tea started our stay. Our room was BEAUTIFUL . Scrupulously clean, bathroom beautiful with added toiletries and White fluffy towels (a must for us) Breakfast was magnificent. Could have any amount of food. Cannot recommend this B & B. Well done Mat and Paul. We'll be back.

I stayed 2 nights here in late November. I was immediately made to feel welcome by Matt and Paul - I was offered tea on arrival and they were ready with advice and recommendations to help me plan my time in the city. My room (Petunia) was comfortable and warm - and quietly situated at the back of the building.... More

The guest house has on-site parking and is only a 15 minute walk to the city centre, which makes it a perfect base for exploring what York has to offer. On arrival we were met by Matt and were offered a pot of tea and a cafetière - much appreciated after a long journey. Matt is always on hand if... More

We stayed here last year when it was run by the present owners' parents. The standard has definitely been kept up with all the usual touches (chocolate and cookies in the room along with tea and coffee). The distance from York is about 20 minutes on foot. We stayed in Orchid which was a very comfortable large room with an... More

Sorry I've been meaning to do this review for ages. We stayed here last year for my birthday and a lovely time. The room was immaculate. The owners were great, they told us all the best places to go and where to eat. But best of all was the homemade English cooked Breakfast. Would definitely come again.

We stayed 2 nights at the Bloomsbury and enjoyed every minute we were there. Matt and Paul gave a warm welcome, always interested in your activities and had suggestions on what to do. Harvey the dog was a sweetheart too. Room Wisteria was decorated just right and a comfy bed. Good location with a 10-15 minute walk into town. Off... More

Can't recommend this place enough. The bedroom was sumptuously decorated, the bed extremely comfortable, the breakfast delicious and varied. Everything in The Bloomsbury has been done with attention to detail and lots of love. Paul and Matt are excellent hosts, giving a warm welcome and plenty of great advice about what to do in and around York. Will definitely come... More

We stayed for 3 nights at The Bloomsbury. We booked some time before the change of management but the changeover seemed to have no impact on the high quality of service provided and the guest house more than met our needs. We stayed in the Holly Berry which is one of the cheaper rooms. The room was compact but perfectly... More

We stayed for two nights at the Bloomsbury while on a weekend away in York and our entire experience of the place was delightful. Welcomed on arrival by Matt we were instantly offered tea (big thumbs up) which we quickly took up. After being shown to our clean, ensuite room we were given a quick tour, a set of keys... More
