Very welcoming hosts, car parked for you (it is a squeeze), tourist information offered. Excellent breakfast, nothing too much trouble, you can have exactly hat you want, cooked to order. Top floor rooms could be a climb with luggage. Our room... More

We stayed in this guesthouse from 4 - 7 July 2014. A wonderful guesthouse in York, a real gem. Julie and Chris were wonderful hosts and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Very handy to have the allocated parking, although it was a bit tight to get the car in and out of the lane, but nonetheless,... More

This is a great B&B, and the breakfast is served in a very nice room and is excellent. We were able to park in their parking lot, and never used the car again as the location is so central to everything. Julie was very helpful when we arrived and showed us on the map where everything was. Our room was... More

This is a stunning guesthouse, ideally situated 5 minutes walk from the train station , shops and York Minster. Beautiful Victorian style house, my room was tastefully decorated, and there's lots of quintessentially English trinkets and nooks and crannies. The street is quiet and my bed extremely cosy so I had a great nights sleep. Full works English breakfast in... More
