We stayed for a few nights whilst visiting York. It's a comfortable, pristine, Victorian house, home to Steve and Tricia's B&B. We were greeted by Steve, a very friendly and dedicated host, with coffee, tea and biscuits. The rooms have names and ours was the Petunia. Not spacious, probably the smallest of them all, but spotless, and with a comfortable... More

We have just returned from a four night stat ( July 2014). It as our second visit. We were made to feel very welcome, more like friends. Our room was lovely, the bed very comfy. The breakfasts are superb, full English, cereal, fresh fruits. Tea & coffee facilities in the bedrooms, plenty of each. The room was serviced everyday, each... More

We stayed at the Bloomsbury for the first time in July, and I must say it is a lovely little B&B. We stayed in the smallest room, the Holly Berry which had a great bathroom (once I'd figured out how to use the shower!) with copious amounts of hot water. The only tiny niggle was the TV - the remote... More

Stayed three nights for the Grand Depart and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful guest house. Steve & Tricia were warm, helpful and gracious hosts. The breakfast was fabulous. Will definitely return.

A lovely pleasant place to stay with nice rooms, Tricia and Steve were the perfect hosts my wife and I both had great weekend. We went to two places Steve had recommended for food Krakatoa and Delrio's, both were really good especially Delrio's. York is a beautiful city with plenty to do and see, we will be back and The...

We stayed at The Bloomsbury in early May and had a fantastic stay. Steve, Tricia and their team were lovely and couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. Steve was very knowledgeable on pubs and restaurants to try and which proved to be very good indeed. The location is perfect for walking into York, either directly or via a stroll along... More

I spent six nights at the Bloomsbury in June while traveling alone, visiting the York area. Tricia and Steve and their lovely staff made me feel as if I the inn was my home as well as theirs. They are hospitable and helpful, but not intrusive. The young ladies who work for them are like family. It was a joy... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in 'Magnolia' room on the ground floor. The room was clean and comfortable. The wooden shutters blocked out the light well and we suffered no noise from traffic. The hosts are lovely and made us very welcome with a tray of tea brought to our room on arrival. The only slight problem was the... More
