I tend to be quite a coward and default to "hotel chains" rather than anything independent. Due to the races such a hotel was not available. I was lucky to get a cancellation and arrive at Bishops. Fantastic friendly welcome Incredibly efficient and helpful staff A lovely room which was immaculate & full of charm. Delicious breakfast with locally sourced... More

Excellent breakfast in spacious dining room overlooking the pretty gardens at the back. Comfortable seating area off where you can sit in the day which has an honestly bar for alcoholic... More

Staying in the orchard suite for 2 nights I can safely say that my second stay at bishops was once again outstanding! The room was spotlessly clean, and my only gripe was that the bathroom was a touch on the small size when compared with other rooms, however given the fact that this is a top floor room it is...

This is a fine old house with 10' ceilings. It is well maintained with lots of nice touches. Our room was clean, large,comfortable and really quiet. It gave us the best sleep we had in 28 days in England. Our room was bright with a big window overlooking the garden. There is a living room to sit and enjoy. They... More

Found this via google and hit the jackpot: generously priced, spotless (single) room, cheerful, friendly staff, a delicious breakfast - can't fault it. I wholeheartedly recommend it to you. I certainly won't bother looking for anywhere else next time I visit York.

We stayed at Bishops in York in May 2014 during our trip around England and Scotland and we are quite happy to say it was the best one we stayed in. Great room, friendly service and the best breakfast with a lovely girl taking care of us. 10/10 Best regards Ross and Joanna Maclean Sydney, Australia

We arrived at Bishops with a warm friendly welcoming, we instantly received a map of York and other information packages about the City which came in very useful. We stayed in a double room which had lovely garden views and the room encountered everything we needed including small room appliances. Bishops was a very peaceful and quiet place to stay... More
