Being able to park walk into city made this an ideal base for exploring York. Room was clean and tidy, warm and well stocked. Breakfast was tasty and sufficient. Mike was a pleasant host. Having to get your breakfast order in by 8pm the night before was a little irksome as it meant not being able to have a desert... More

Mike, the owner, was a great host with just the right amount of friendly contact. 15 minutes level and attractive walking from the center of York but several restaurants and pubs within a stone's throw in the parade of shops in the main street. Being outside York made parking easy with the Dairy's permit (I don't know if these are... More

We have stayed at the Dairy guest house on a few occasions over the years and always found it warm and welcoming, this was our first stay since the property changed hands and can say the new owners have added that extra attention to detail that makes your stay a memorable experience. In the past we stayed in the court... More

Stay here if you get the chance! The owner is so nice. Breakfast is amazing. The rooms are cleaned to perfection. Close walk to anything in York. Not as big as I thought it would be, but the charm won my entire family over. The patio outside was a nice touch and lovely to sit on and have a glass... More

We stayed at this guest house for four nights in connection with a conference in York. It is located just outside the city walls in a small business community with a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. It is very well run - orderly, clean and friendly. The breakfast is very good and you order it the evening before and... More

Dairy Guest House is a lovely little B&B. Just outside the city walls, it's near enough to walk to all of the attractions and close to some very nice restaurants. Mike is a great host, very attentive, but only if you need him to be, and attention to detail is very evident. The rooms are well equipped; filtered water, biscuits... More

I booked this guest house for ourselves, my daughter and fiancée. The rooms were clean and tidy and had nice touches like bottled water and chocolates. The breakfast was hot and fresh - Mike was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the walk into the city along the riverside and I would recommend the Dairy Guest House.

You can walk into the historic centre of York in 15 minutes even at our slow pace, their are lots of nice places to eat also within a short walk. Mike will give you a parking permit so you can leave your car for the length of your stay, you don't want to be driving around York, its a nightmare,... More
