It is worth staying here just for the breakfasts!! The poached eggs are perfection. Great to have the parking permit & not use the car. Lovely walk into the city. York is stunning. Loved walking around the city wall. Very comfortable beds. Spotless room. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Would definitely go back.

This was a perfect place for our group of 4 to stay in York. The room was very nicely layed out with two singles and one double bed. Though the space isn't very big, it is still enough. The television was great for the times that you wanted to lay back and relax, there were plenty of refreshments like cold... More

Stayed for 3 nights. Owner very helpful and friendly, and even took our bags up to the room for us as we arrived early. I loved the rustic feel to the room, very large bathroom and very comfortable. The breakfast is fantastic and fresh cooked for you. I think it is great value for money and would happily stay again.

This was our first stay at the Dairy Guesthouse. Mike, the owner was very welcoming and obliging. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. Delicious, filling breakfast with a good choice. Good location a few minutes walk from the city centre. We have already booked again for next year!

Great hospitality from the owner Mike, friendly, helpful & cooked a delicious breakfast. His poached eggs were perfection. Ideally situated just on the outskirts of the city within an easy walk to all the places of interest. Car parking no problem at all as a permit is provided, didn't have to use the car due to the excellent location. Great... More

The whole visit was such a pleasure, clean, comfy guesthouse. Mike the host was so welcoming. He thinks of everything to make your trip enjoyable and is so organised! Thought I had caught him out as I thought there was no hairdryer but I found it in the loads of storage space that was available.

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
