We were a family of five (two adult couples and a single) who stayed here for a single night during Summer. We picked this B&B because of its fair price and proximity to the city centre. We found it perfectly adequate, although the beds were not the most comfortable to sleep on and the rooms were quite cosy. However, it... More

We contacted the hotel prior to visit to request champagne glasses in room for our arrival as it was our wedding anniversary, got up to the room... Nothing, even though we had numerous contact confirming this. Was told off for sitting in the wrong place at breakfast and made to feel uncomfortable. Will not be returning.

Great location and comfortable beds. Clean rooms. Hearty breakfast. HOWEVER - we would not stay here again. The business is for sale and it looks as if the innkeepers have already given up. The décor is old and worn, although it looks as if they tried to make it Victorian-looking. The breakfast rooms was totally different decor with bright red... More

We booked the family room for a 1 night stay while on a driving tour of England. Reservation in advance was no problem, although we were uncertain of our arrival time. With some delays we arrived later than expected which left only a short amount of time for check in and orientation. If check in is not within specified times... More

I had stayed here while in the York area and have no complaints about the place. The room was comfortable and breakfast was very nice. It was about a 10 min walk in to the city centre. Would certianly stay here again

We stayed 2 nights at this lovely B&B and would definitely stay here again. We were met at the door by Alan who quickly sorted out a parking permit for us before giving us a quick orientation of the area and providing us with a very helpful map that was heavily used throughout our time in York. Even though we... More

Barrington House Guest House, York 3 nights 24/26 June 2014 We don’t normally book this style of accommodation – but York, being the popular destination it is, was packed to the rafters. The property was rated 4 star and the centre of town was an easy 10 minute walk away. The blurb said there were pubs and restaurants nearby so... More

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
