Arnot House had everything we were looking for in a B&B. The rooms were fairly small, but well organized -- there was plenty of room for us and our two (overhead-bin-sized) suitcases. Breakfast, served in a sunny, pleasantly furnished room, was delicious, offering home-made preserves as well as locally-made sausages. The location -- a short walk from the historic center,... More

Dear Wobbs1 Thank you for those lovely comments and I am so pleased you enjoyed staying at Arnot House. I always like to offer guests local info, as sometimes you can miss some special event or one off show as it is not well publicised. The free guided daily tours of York are a great way to explore the city...at... More

This is one of the best B&B we have stayed in! It is a 'themed' Victorian house run by knowledgeable hosts Kim and Ann. The bedroom and on-suite were spotless and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was really good with plenty of fresh food choose from. The full English breakfast was of good quality and well cooked. The... More

Dear Kelvin660 Thankyou for your lovely comments about Arnot House and the Byland room that you stayed in...it is a lovely spacious room with its high ceiling and brass bed and marble fireplace. We have always liked period houses as they have great proportions and Arnot House has lots of original features and character. Thankyou again for visiting with us... More

If you've ever had to shoe-horn yourself into a tiny bedroom or shower stall, you'll love the spaciousness of Kim's guest house. There is a real bath tub (a rarity in B&Bs) and lots of room that even the 4-poster bed couldn't diminish. The food was plentiful and delicious and we had tea pot and supplies in our room. The...

Lovely stay at Arnot House. The railway and town both walkable in 10ish minutes. It's nice to stay somewhere in which the owners take obvious care and pride in. Spacious room, very comfy bed with soft bedding. Lots of thought & attention to detail which is obvious with the little extras such as plasters/nail files/toiletries and a generous hospitality tray... More

Arnot House is very well located a short walk from York City centre - you can park your car in the road outside with a parking permit and never need to move it if you just want to see the city. The road is very quiet and the car quite safe. The room was very comfortable with lots of extras... More

This B&B is located on a quiet street a short distance from the old city walls. It is perfectly situated for visitors who want to check out York, but don't want to be in the thick of the bustle. The innkeepers are pleasant and helpful; and the breakfasts are the full meal deal. We easily walked here from the train... More
