Excellent breakfast and very friendly staff. Was unfortunate with my room which was stylish, recently refurbished and clean. On ground floor close to a busy road so had a choice of noise or airlessness. The bottom panes of the window were opaque and the ensuite shower had a pull switch about 6 ft off the ground. The shower was either... More

Clean, friendly and great location. Richard and Jenny are lovely hosts and the rest of the team are equally welcoming and helpful. Bedroom was a good size and very well decorated, en-suite also very clean and looked recently refurbished. Comfortable bed and very quiet. Breakfast was great, brilliant vegetarian breakfast available. Would definitely recommend this place and will be booking... More

We stayed at Warrens Tuesday-Friday after reading recent reviews on trip advisor. There are lots of places to choose from but we were not disappointed with our choice. Warrens is good value for money, we had room 3 which had a large comfortable bed with en-suite. Towels and toiletries were handy for us. Furniture is slightly dated but served its... More

We had two rooms for three nights earlier this month. The rooms and bathrooms looked recently refurbished and were immaculately clean. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. Each room is provided with an electric kettle, instant coffee, cocoa and tea, plus a little package of cookies. The staff was friendly and accommodating--we were happy for the very... More

Arrived in York from a less than perfect B and B experience in Harrogate and was instantly charmed by this beautiful B and B. Jenny welcomed us with a smile and showed us to our room which was immaculate. Bed was super large as was the room. The breakfast is in a delightfully bright conservatory at the back and is... More

Cleans and tidy guest house in a good location just outside the walls. Room we stayed in was a bit sparse and the furniture had seen better days. Breakfast was very good and we did not have to wait. Would recommend for the budget traveller.

Our second visit. Just as nice as the first. Lovely big bed in room 5. Twin room comfortable as well. Situated for a nice walk into the city. Breakfast served in the conservatory was excellent and set us up for the day.

My boyfriend and I had a lovely, comfortable one night stay at Warrens. We received a very warm welcome from Jenny who checked us in to our room, which was at the back of the house and was quiet, well equipped and we had a great night's sleep on a very comfortable bed. It was a short walk to the... More

Our room was a good size, nicely decorated and had everything you needed (although I would have liked a wee pack of biscuits each rather than just the one pack of two). The bed was lovely and comfy. Although we were on a busy road, it wasn't constant traffic and you could switch off to the noise. It was an... More
