Don't be put off by the unassuming frontage of this Guesthouse - Mike is a great host - friendly and informative and ready to assist with any requests. The room( No 2) was comfortable, clean and quiet - parking is via a free permit provided by Mike - breakfast is great with a good selection - we would definitely stay... More

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. Mike the host is fantastic and his breakfasts are the start you need for your day. The hotel is just the right distance from the centre. We had a double room with a bath. The room was comfortable for our needs. My only observation is that the decor and bathroom are tired... More

Mike was an amazing host and made mine and my boyfriend's stay really enjoyable. Being vegan, it's often quite tricky to find places that provide vegan options, and we'd actually booked without checking first, however it turned out that vegan breakfasts were in fact available which made our stay more hassle-free. Our room was lovely, extremely homely and very clean.... More

Based on other reviews, we booked here for 3 nights. Couldn't sleep, bed was so hard. Facilities poor, no soap, just a small bath gel already partly used. Shower so tiny, not even a soap dish everything had to go on the gfloor. Shabby and dirty. We left after 1 night but the landlord insisted we pay for all 3... More

We opted for this guest house after reading the numerous great reviews about it and it did not disappoint. Before we even arrived in York, a number of emails had been exchanged between myself and the proprietor, Mike, regarding check-in procedures and I was provided with extremely detailed instructions on what to do on arrival. Once I accessed the building... More

Stayed 2 nights in the Dairy Guest House. Perfect. Location excellent-15 minutes walk from city centre and a nice area, with permit provided for parking just around the corner. Highly recommend the quiz in the Swan pub just down the road on a Wednesday night, hosted by the very funny landlord, and can definitely suggest the Swan ale. The Guest... More

Mike is an excellent host and so organised, the place is run very smoothly- parking and check in /out all very good. Room 1 is a characterful room with a very small bathroom, but in such a lovely period property that is to be expected. Room 3 is a good twin with large bathroom. Lots of thoughtful aspects- eg fresh... More

Stayed two nights for mid-week York visit. Location is perfect, just 10 minutes walk to the town. It's a simple but stylish accommodation, lovely original features in many rooms. We had a massive bathroom as well! The host/owner is very welcoming and helpful, breakfast perfect - full English freshly cooked, not too greasy or heavy. Would highly recommend.
