Stayed here for a couple of night last month. Looked really nice on the web site but disappointed when we got there. Parking excellent and a nice walk into the town took about 10 minutes. Was given 1st room which was at the top of the house but having just had major surgery asked to be moved. Was moved straight... More

We have just returned from York (9.14) having stayed at the Holmwood House B & B and was sorely disappointed to find that it was nothing like the photographs as shown on the Internet. To say we were very disappointed with the accommodation is an understatement. The room was drab and the carpet was very dirty and badly marked. The... More

I haven't had the privelege of staying at Holmwood House yet but have had such helpful co-operation from the owners that I felt I needed to comment. I accidently booked wrong dates and didnt know about this until Holmwood House phoned asking when I expected to arrive? They have been very obliging in helping me reschedule and have been so... More

The rooms were a little dated and could probably do with an upgrade. We were right up the top and got a lovely view into York but couldn't get wifi on our room. The service was excellent with friendly and helpful staff and a great breakfast. Overall probably a little over priced for the standard of the room but not... More

We arrived well before check in but we had no trouble registering and parking. We went to explore York while our room was being prepared. On our return we found a spotless, well appointed room. The beds were very comfortable and the hospitality tray was exceptional. Our hosts were polite and friendly throughout and nothing was too much trouble. The... More

Classified as a 4star hotel is misleading. We booked a superior twin based on the photos and AA rating. Reception is a serving hatch with a phone and instructions to ring which we failed to get a response from. Our room was dated, dirty and nothing like any of the lovely gallery pictures. The bathroom had black mould all around... More

We had a pleasant enough stay here and the staff are very friendly but its definitely not 4* as is rather shabby, with worn carpets and dowdy wallpaper. We booked a 'superior twin' but I would say it was more of a 'normal twin. It was in an annex and was quiet but on the car park so late arrivals... More

Just had an enjoyable stay here over 5 nights. Room 4 overlooks the small rear garden and car park, good size double bed and with large bath and shower (driven off the taps). Lovely and quiet with no road noise. Breakfast was superb, really good quality full English, fruit, cereals, toast etc and friendly staff. Town is a good 15... More
