I enjoyed having the Bloomsbury as my home-base for four days while in York. Hosts Steve and Tricia were very helpful with suggestions and quite accomodating all around. The breakfasts were ample; and delicious. I stayed in a smaller room on the top floor, "Petunia," which suited my needs perfectly. High marks for cleanliness &c. This B&B is located in... More

Stayed 3 nights at The Bloomsbury and enjoyed it. Room (The Orchid) was spacious and comfortable. Well decorated and maintained. Comfortable bed and good wifi. Small but good bathroom with shower. Breakfast is well done and served in a pleasant bright room on the main floor. 15 mins pleasant walk to centre of old York, and about the same distance... More

Managing Pub-Tours with friends for over 20 years by visting the UK and Ireland this was absolutely the best B&B we have ever been. So many thanks to Tricia, Steve and the staff for this never forgetable stay at The Bloomsbury.

Our 3 night stay at the Bloomsbury in York was amazing...our hosts Tricia and Steve were very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. They went above and beyond to help make our first visit to York memorable. Our room which was called 'Wisteria' was spotless, comfortable and quiet! There was a wide variety of choice for breakfast and full... More

I had a fabulous stay at the Bloomsbury in York. All of the staff were really friendly and helpful, I was travelling alone and it was lovely to be welcomed with a fresh pot of tea and a smile. The hotel is in walking distance of the railway station and I had been told that it was a nice walk... More

This is the kind of B&B that makes so many others pale in comparison. It is attractive, comfortable with (a number of) spacious rooms. The friendly hosts could not be more accommodating, and the breakfast was a joy. If I'm ever back in York, I'll make a point of staying here again.

Our stay was pleasant, the room was good, and the breakfasts were excellent. Plenty of local information available for tourists, and what can you say about York! We were there just before the Tour de France - and the whole place had a great atmosphere. Perfect location, walk to the bus into York.

Rachel and myself had a very enjoyable stay at the Bloomsbury. We stayed between 30March - 2nd April (3 nights). On arrival we were greeted with a friendly smile by one of the housekeepers. Tricia and Steve are lovely people who are very welcoming, we also liked the meet and greeter Harvey :). They were very informative with telling us... More
