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

Stayed for one night in a back facing room. Small but was OK. Free parking. The other reviews are all accurate. Needs a bit of refurbishment but all was very homely. The garden could do with some paint and a few pots of plants to brighten it up. Wouldn't like to sit on any of those chairs!

Nice b&b 10-15 min walk away from the city centre, 5 min from the station. Bus outside if needed. Rooms are nice and clean. Breakfast very good as well with the cooked breakfast particular nice and fresh looking. Do ask for a back facing room as it will be quiet

We had a room in the annexe and it was really pleasant room which had recently been furbished to a great standard. It was a great price for York and still in walking distance for the city centre. The breakfast was great and it had some really nice touches too. Most of the staff were really friendly and what really... More
