We arrived at the hotel at 1pm to leave our bags and called the owner as no answer at the door. He did arrive 10 mins later and checked us in. Twice in the next hour he called me, asking where I was after we had left. Kettle in room - no tea or coffee in room. Room 10 is... More

Stop and think before you book this place. I went on a pre-arranged hen do for the weekend and it was a nasty experience. The owner of the place was very rude to guests and ten minutes into arriving at the place, he asked us had we stolen his master keys off the front desk!! Good start! The room I... More

Lovely few days in York at the Clifton Bridge, very hospitable, good breakfast, on site parking, 20 minutes stroll along river to city centre, or similar by road with historic buildings. Excellent facilities super value.

After booking 2 months in advance for this room we turned up only to be told we did not have a room available as a hen party had come and took all of the rooms. We had specifically booked this guest house to be close to an event we were attending that night. We were told there was no rooms... More

We stayed 30/7/14 for 2 nights. When we asked the owner if there was somewhere to eat other than in the towm, he straightaway told us about the Door mouse. He called it up on the internet and even phoned to book us a table. He told us to get ready and he would take us there in his own... More

The room was good so was the breakfast but the guy on reception was to customer service as King Herod was to baby sitting. I'm sure you can do better than this. It's also about 20 minutes walk to the city centre

So where do I start with this idyllic gem in the heart of York and its wonderful owner… Myself and two friends arrived after completing day 2 of our London to Edinburgh cycle challenge. Tired, hungry and in need of a wash we just wanted to check in, shower and head out for food… Half an hour passed and after... More

Booked this guest house for myself and two friends. Only had time to read reviews day before our visit and was horrified to read comments. We travelled by train and got a taxi to the guest house. Arrived an hour before check in time and nervously rang the bell for attention in the hope that we could leave our luggage... More

In my opinion - avoid this simple, very stuffy and bad taste guest house. We arrived and the owner made rude remarks about my Thai girlfriend. He explained that his ex-Thai wife had "nearly bankrupted him" and implied that my girlfriend (an oil industry employee) was of the same ilk; how he hated Bangkok and Thailand, etc. Breakfast was average:...
