The Dairy Guest House is the perfect location to base daily adventures out of in the York area. It is close to the train station, within a brief walk to the city walls, and is quiet. Breakfast is superb and of good quantity and quality (previous reviews which have complained about portion sizes baffle me) and the owner takes care... More

Lovely little hotel. Friendly host who does a great breakfast and made us feel really welcome. Our double room had a lovely big bathroom which is a treat in a B&B, and mum's ground floor double was newly decorated and very tasteful, and quiet. There's a private courtyard garden that's a great space for a quiet coffee. As you'd expect... More

Mike, the host has had this business for two years and it costs £90 B&B, no issues with the price, hospitality, location or value for money. Close to the City, friendly environment and the host happy to assist. Unassuming from its frontage but it does provide accommodation at a reasonable price.

Visited on a weekend with my parents. It was very clean, parking was off street and breakfast was tasty. Location was just out of town and we managed to walk everywhere including the York Minster, The Shambles and Railway Museum. When we left, my dad left something behind by accident and Mike kindly posted it back to me promptly. Top... More

My wife and I just spent an amazing three nights at the Dairy in York. Mike the owner couldn't do enough for us both before, during and after our stay. He answered all our questions about using his free parking ect and even returned a necklace that we had left in the nightstand. The building itself is unassuming from the... More

Six of us girls revisited the Dairy for the recent Music Showcase at York Races (Tom Jones is HOT!) We have always stayed at the Dairy because of the location between the racecourse and the city centre and the owner is so considerate to our needs, one of us has special medical needs and Mike is always happy to store...

Some nice touches like wine glasses and chocolate left in the room. Free parking. Very close to the centre. Friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was very nice, just the right amount and we were told to ask for more if we wanted it, plus there's cereal

Sadly the breakfast was a disappointment very small portions fit for a mouse, butter appeared to be on rations. You can walk into... More

The convient location and friendly and attentive care from the proprietor were the higlights of our 4 night stay, but the night-time quietness of room 4 (above the inner courtyard) was a big plus for us. Visiting York (and England) for the first time, we appreciated being able to visit with our knowledgable host about what we would enjoy seeing... More
