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.

My family stayed here for a couple of nights, and found the Dairy Guest House to be a fabulous B and B only about 10 -15 minutes from the centre of York. Mike was a fabulous host, the breakfasts were amazing. Having parking was a real bonus. We had a room in the main house, and a room in the... More

Ray and I have had a wonderful weekend break. The guest house was perfect. The host was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable warm and tidy. We would definitely stay there again when visiting York.

We stayed here in the summer but I'm afraid I've only now got round to writing this review. I chose the Dairy Guest House from its website for a short stay with my elderly mother. I must admit that when we arrived outside the house, said mother looked far from impressed and my heart did sink a little. I'm pleased... More
