Stayed for one night in a back facing room. Small but was OK. Free parking. The other reviews are all accurate. Needs a bit of refurbishment but all was very homely. The garden could do with some paint and a few pots of plants to brighten it up. Wouldn't like to sit on any of those chairs!

Nice b&b 10-15 min walk away from the city centre, 5 min from the station. Bus outside if needed. Rooms are nice and clean. Breakfast very good as well with the cooked breakfast particular nice and fresh looking. Do ask for a back facing room as it will be quiet

We had a room in the annexe and it was really pleasant room which had recently been furbished to a great standard. It was a great price for York and still in walking distance for the city centre. The breakfast was great and it had some really nice touches too. Most of the staff were really friendly and what really... More

The staff were friendly and helpful. Great breakfast and nice selection of fruit. Parking is free if you can get in the car park, if not; the main road is safe. We felt our room was a little dated .The tv could do with putting on the wall in front of the bed instead of to the side . Bathroom... More

The hosts were very welcoming and friendly and the breakfast good. however, the room was most disappointing. it was nothing like photo of the "Superior Twin" we thought we had booked on-line. The decor was very dated and slightly shabby, with broken hooks in the bathroom and inside the wardrobe, and one of the drawers. The toiletries were v poor... More

Just back from a 2 night stay - I'd say its a decent bed and breakfast rather than a hotel. Breakfas t was very good with excellent quality of food and all served hot and fresh - a definate plus. Location is good close to Railway station and Racetrack. Our room was very small and probably overpriced for what it... More

Holmwood house is a charming bed and breakfast that is only a 15-minute walk from the Railway station, the old walls, and city center. It is only a few steps from a bus stop that will get you there much more quickly. The staff is friendly. The rooms are comfortable, though not unduly modern. The breakfast is to die for.... More
