We we're due to fly out to Barcelona on the Thursday but our flight got cancelled . Still needing a break we quickly booked this guest house which was a lovely stay.

Booked a last minute weekend away in York over Easter and we really lucked out with this gorgeous BnB. Although the rooms are undergoing some renovations this didn't affect us at all. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the cooked breakfast is honestly the best EVER (with plenty of great tasting coffee and marmalade for toast!). The room... More

Walk into town centre is 20 minutes and taxi fare £5.30. Parking available at rear of building but can get full,... More

We stayed here recently for a couple of nights. It's location is just outside Micklegate Bar so an easy walk to the city centre and the attractions. The checkin is a little unusual as you have to dial a phone to call a receptionist to appear, no massive inconvenience though. We were given keys to room 11 it was at... More

We stayed just one night at holmwood house and was a pleasant enough stay,all except for the noise in our room. We were in room one right by the rear door, the room itself is very nice albeit could do with a new carpet and some better furniture perhaps but absolutely nothing wrong with what was there, it also has...

It was just along the street & owned by the same couple Paul &Jacqui. We were given a brief talk about the area, attractions,places to eat, taxis and buses. Plenty of... More

Arrived back home today from a lovely 2 night stay at Holwood House. On arrival, we parked up in the carpark, which had ample spaces. Initially we were a little disheartened to find that they were re-furbishing the guest house, apologies were given for the inconvenience of this. However we found that this did not impact on us at all.... More
