Reading reviews before I got to the guesthouse I was worried about what to expect. It was an easy walk from the train station and easy to find. The receptionist called to ask where I was told me to call her when I am near. She meet us at the front door and the check in process was quick. We... More

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...

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
