Usually stay at Premier Inn type places but as this weekend was for the wife's birthday we decided to have a proper hotel and so glad we did. First thing - plenty of parking, checking in was pleasant and the room just grand. Then there was breakfast - don't make miss it, they're great. We had a great weekend made... More

We stayed here for several nights. The hotel looks attractive from outside and internally. It was being refurbished while we were there and the room we had just been upgraded with a new "bathroom" - there wasn't a bath but the spacious shower was excellent and the bathroom sparkled. The bedroom was very tastefully decorated and of a good size... More

Arriving with my partner, mum and siblings for a family-orientated week in York, we were greeted with the most friendly welcome. Almost instantly I felt comfortable with the staff, who permitted us to have our clean and pleasant family room hours before check-in. Holmwood house is owned by a family that also run the neighbouring Holgate B&B. We had a... More

First the positives - we received a very warm and friendly welcome from the owners, and the room was very clean and tidy, newly refurbished and of a high standard. The reason that I have marked it down is that the room was really tiny (see photo). It was in an annex at the back of the hotel and looked... More

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

Stayed two nights and at present under some decor refurbishment. Clean room (we were in room 12 which is on top floor overlooking town and minster bug beware stairs are steep to top floor)- good breakfast with good choice. 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
