Checked in to Holmwood House on 27th Feb 2014 and the friendly, professional, warm welcome and check-in was a wonderful start. We were provided with lots of information about the best places to eat and visit which was great. We were booked into room 5 which was large, clean and full of character. The bed was massive and so so... More

Just returned from an interesting 3 day historical visit to York. The hotel was clean and tidy, and our room was lovely with a very comfortable bed, however it was a bit of a tug up to the top floor, but once there it was very spacious and had an interesting view over the city. The staff were very friendly... More

We were originally booked for the Holgate Bridge, which is its sister B & B, but were upgraded to the Holmwood House. Generally when you find yourself moved to another lodging you get the short end of the stick but this was not the case. Jeanette not only got us settled, she recommended various restaurants and pubs closeby. Breakfast the... More

had a decent enough room but staff don't seem to be on hand as they are trying to run another establishment a few doors away. Ordered a poached egg with the cooked breakfast - they were cooked in a mould which was quite disappointing. Although the plates were warm some of the items on the plate were cold. But the... More

The staff at Holmwood House are very friendly and welcoming and the room was clean, nicely furnished and very comfortable - had a great night's sleep! Unfortunately, our room was next to reception so it was quite noisy in the mornings and, although breakfast options were plentiful, the cooked breakfast was quite cold when it arrived. Overall, an enjoyable stay!

In spite of some confusion when we phoned to make our reservation, we arrived at Holmwood House to find a large bedroom with the cot that we had asked for already in place. The bedroom, bathroom and common areas were spotlessly clean although some of the decor was slightly dated. The shower was fantastic - really powerful and it was... More
