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

I wasn't really worried where I stayed as it was just a place to rest our heads. However I was really surprised and extremely happy with this choice, this guest... More

We stayed at the Dairy Guest House for the weekend of the Tour de France. Communication in the lead up to our visit was good to arrange car parking permits and estimated arrival times. We stayed in room 1 of the 6 available, which is exactly as the photos show. A great selection of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and mineral... More

Very good value for money - I stayed in Room 2 - the kingsize with four-poster bed which was very nice. Despite being by the road it was quiet at night too. En-suite and room very clean. Breakfast was spot-on - very tasty and a good quality sausage, which is a must in my eyes ;) The room had a... More
