This Guest House is quietly located near to York city centre. My room was comfortably furnished with lots of little considerate touches - that make all the difference. The disadvantage is that breakfast is only served from 08:30 - which might suit holiday makers, but is too late for business travellers.

My wife and I needed a place to stop for a Fri/Sat night stay that was close to York railway station and Barrington House fitted the bill perfectly. We were warmly welcomed by Kristina and given clear instructions on where to park etc. Alan carried the breakfast duties on the Sunday morning and our appetites were well sated. We were... More

Just spent 2 nights here with our 3 teenagers in two rooms, and the place is very nice and accommodating. On the plus side, it is very clean, and quiet as well. We were on the top floor in the family room, which was fine for 4 of us. The check-in was smooth, and we were met right on time... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here early march and it was the loveliest b&b I've stayed at. We stayed in the superior room and the bed was the comfiest I've ever stayed in. It was faultlessly clean and the service was excellent and the hosts couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was a help yourself to juice, cereal and fruit... More

Stayed here for 2 nights during easter 2014. Booked it due to location as we've visited York loads of times and know its not to far from the main areas we wanted to be. Also the reviews it gets on TripAdvisor gave us a good feel for the place. They phoned the day before to offer us advice on the... More

Stayed in Barrington House last weekend with my husband...room on the second floor was lovely, very clean, and bathroom fab. Really good toiletries included. It took about 20 mins to walk into the Centre of York, and some quaint shops in Bishopsgate on the way. Breakfast good quality, but choice slightly limited? Very friendly owners. Would recommend.

Our stay in York was made very memorable by the knowledgeable hosts and the convenient location of this bed and breakfast. Our bedroom and ensuite was exceptionally clean and comfortable and we enjoyed a lovely, well-cooked breakfast. Being able to leave our hire car in a convenient location with the use of a parking permit was also a bonus as... More

My wife & I fancied a long weekend in England and chose York. We arrived at the B&B and was greeted by the landlady, she pointed out that she'd had to cancel her dental appointment as we'd been delayed in traffic. It was one of those moments that I just felt was unnecessary to tell us. I'm not wanting to... More

I stayed over a weekend, and found the guest house and rooms to be a great standard. Very friendly people and breakfast was perfect, with plenty to choose from. A great quality guest house in a nice quiet area.The resident pass for parking on the street outside the guest house was a great bonus
