Well run B&B with new owners. Very friendly with a great English breakfast provided. 10 min walk from train station and a 5 min walk to Roman gate. Nicely located with reasonable size rooms. Rooms were clean and reasonably appointed.

Just been taken over by new owners who gave a nice hospitable welcome. The rooms need some décor updating and not as good from this point of view a year ago. Breakfast was good and staff are the same. Looking forward to when they update this and then I will return as prices are not cheap for shoddy rooms.There seemed... More

It was quite a hike uphill from the train station to this guest house, probably a 20-25 minute walk. It's on a quiet, residential street. No street noise or traffic disturbed me. There are many hotels on this street, as well as private homes. A map shows train tracks running close by (which concerned me) but I never heard a... More

This is not a small business it is 14 beds and run like a factory. Everything is prepackaged, milk, cereals the lot. Breakfast was full English varied only by what you left off. Couldn't tell if it ere clean or dirty as everything was beige and faded pink, polyester sheets. A cheap, noisy un welcoming place, inflexible and charging £70... More

Bootham Guest House was our first experience in a B&B. Our family room was comfortable and clean. It was nice to make coffee and tea in the morning before going down to breakfast. Good wifi reception. The TV was very small, but we didn't spend much time in our room. Breakfast was very good. Fruit, yogurt and cereal provided before... More

The rooms were very clean but small even for a B&B. the owner was very friendly but was on holiday when we arrived and we didn't meet her until the morning of our departure. The beds were just ok, the breakfast was good but without... More

This is an absolute gem. I stayed in the single room for one night on a business trip. The staff were very accommodating, e.g. allowing early breakfast and ordering me a taxi. The room was very clean and tidy - nothing too fancy but excellent value. Breakfast was well cooked with fresh coffee and a range of cereals. I would... More

On the basis of the positive reviews, we booked two weekend nights at this guest house. We expected to be pleasantly accommodated given what we thought was the relatively high cost of £90per night for the en-suite room for two. 24 hours before we arrived, we received word that the purpose for our trip to York had been cancelled, and...
