We stayed here for a 2 night midweek easter break- booking 2 rooms with teenage daughters. We were given a warm and friendly welcome by Richard with lots of useful information about the area and York's attractions. We found the location of the B&B handy for the city centre- a 10 min walk away. Just round the corner is the... More

Initially we were greeted by a warm & friendly gentleman (Richard) who gave us a great in site as to what to expect in York. Where was a must see & possibly what could be missed. The first house is immaculate & very homely. Our room was beautifully decorated & very clean. The walk into town took us 5-10 minutes.... More

Myself and my boyfriend managed to find this B&B online after searching for many hours hoping to find a place which catered for breakfasts and was not too far away from the centre of York as we were hoping to go out and explore the city! The many reviews before this one were incredibly informative and to the most part... More

We booked a trip a couple of weeks ago for the New Year and enjoyed ourselves in the B and B. The staff were charming and very approachable. The breakfast was made to order and excellent quality. Everything was within walking distance even for my partner who likes to drive to places. The parking on site was safe and an... More

We managed to book in relatively last minute to Warrens to stay last weekend but I think it was a fluke as there were no vacancies when we arrived and breakfast the next morning showed us that every room had been occupied. Richard was very friendly and informative on arrival and we were given a permit for the handy on-street... More

Been to this B&B a few times before. The welcome from Jenny and Richard made us feel at home straight away. It's an ideal place to stay if you want to explore York and the surrounding area. The breakfast is excellent and seeing Norma again was fab. The room as always was clean and we knew our things were safe... More

Would highly recommend this friendly b+b. Very good cooked breakfast, clean room - ours had a view of the Minster in the distance. This was in a perfect location for walking into York. Would definitely like to return in order to explore York further.

Stayed two nights in September. This is a very good B&B with secure parking - always a bonus. Only a short walk to central York. Room was newly decorate, clean, spacious. Good restaurant just down the road, plus a few other cafes, and supermarket for essentials. This is an ideal location to stay in York. Friendly hosts - good breakfast.... More

Stayed for a couple of nights and would definitely stay again. We stayed in room 6 at the very top of the house, lovely and quiet. The room, the bedding and the shower all clean. Breakfast was really nice, a good selection of fresh fruit, cereal and yoghurt. Cooked breakfast was nice and hot with a choice of eggs. All... More
