First time in York and didn't fancy staying in a hotel. The staff were great and friendly. I was lucky enough to have the ground floor room next to the entrance (it's shown on the images with the sofa under the window) rooms were very clean and very spacious. En-suite bathroom was great too! Beds very exceptionally comfortable and large!... More

This family run guest house is worth a visit just for style tips. Victorian home made special by owners who go the extra mile! The bathroom offered every complimentary toiletry one might need from toothbrush to razor. We didn't need to use but would appreciate had we forgotten our essentials. Owner organised excellent breakfast tray as early departure for work... More

We wanted somewhere to walk to the city from and at only 1 mile from the walls this B & B did not disappoint. Our room was three floors up which for me with a back injury caused some issues, but...

The welcome and service at Bishops was fantastic, the lady on reception was so informative offering recommendations on restaurants, bus and taxi services and sight seeing. Our room was gorgeous, spotless, spacious and very warm and comfortable, with lots of attention to detail including being offered bath robes and fresh milk with the hostess tray. Plenty of choice of cereals,... More
