My girlfriend and I stayed here mid December 2014 and it was a fabulous week away. The hotel was a short and pleasant walk into York city centre with a few sneaky hidden gems to find along the way, like a back route through the Museum gardens. The stay was made even better with Steve and Tricia, as it was... More

Steve and Tricia are delightful hosts who give a warm welcome. They are happy to give advice on any issue you wish to ask them about. The room was excellent, clean and, despite a problem with the heating which they warned us about in advance, perfectly warm. The breakfast was delicious with particular credit going to the sausages! Can think... More

I chose this hotel on the basis of Trip Advisor recommendations and it was well worth it! Really wonderful, beautiful hotel and the owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We stayed in Holly Berry which was warm, clean and provided everything we needed. Breakfast (full English) was great! Really good service as well and it... More

I'm only going to add to the countless other 5* ratings for The Bloomsbury, but that's because the praise really is much deserved. Our room was a generously sized, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean double (Peony), with lots of thought put into it: lamp next to the armchairs, plenty of surfaces to place bags/stuff, alarm clock/radio so you don't have...

We booked the Bloomsbury for our valentines treat, and what a treat it turned out to be, Tricia and Steve are the perfect hosts. We stayed in the holly berry room, which is located at the rear of the building and is very quiet The room was well maintained and completely spotless, its a non smoking establishment, which suited me....

We stayed in the Magnolia room on the ground floor in November. It was very nice - spacious, well appointed and clean. It is a very attractive , elegant house.We were given a tea tray with biscuits upon arrival - nice touch after a long train ride. The bathroom was spacious with a nice supply of bath things. There was... More

This was out third stay at the Bloomsbury. Yet again, could not fault it. A lovely warm welcome from Steve & Trisha. Although we had arrived mid morning, our room was ready and waiting. A cup of tea offered before we went off for the day. The Bloomsbury is a lovely place to stay, but the fact it is within... More

Thanks for another great review Jane, and we truly appreciate that you've taken the time and effort to post it. With over 50% of our UK guests being returning visitors in the 5 years we've been here, reviews do tend to dry up, especially since we don't actively solicit reviews. Therefore your review is greatly appreciated, just like Dragonlady Pam... More

This b&b is the best place to stay if your going to York, I wouldn't go anywhere else now. This is a family ran business and it really shows they care about the... More

We stayed at the Bloomsbury for 3 nights from Friday 28th November. Exceptional in the fact that you can arrive early and leave your car (even if your room isn't ready)! As explained by Steve on the telephone during booking..... In fact, I would say he encourages you to arrive early so you can enjoy a full day on your... More
