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

Many thanks to Mike for making our stay so comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. Mike and staff were kindness itself helping me with our luggage and making sure Jenny had everything to hand and was made to feel welcome and valued. A caring friendly establishment that I highly recommend. All this, comfortable beds and an excellent breakfast to boot. Thanks... More

We stopped in York for two nights on our way to Edinburgh. Lovely town and lovely hotel. Owner emailed a confirmation before we arrived which was nice. We booked the family room which provided a double bed for mom and dad, and a twin bed for each teen. The room was clean and fresh when we arrived. Bathroom looked newly... More

We were made to feel very welcome from the start of our 3 nights. Mike was very friendly and a super host. Breakfast was great and set us up for the day ahead. Our room was comfortable, with little extras we didn't expect. This B&B also has a lovely courtyard to sit outside. We would stay there again, such was... More

We stayed two nights and only 10 minute work into the main town. Lovely hosts and great location, however, the rooms are extremely dated! The biggest disappointment... no shower! A simple basic in this day and age.

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
