Les and Al are extremely helpful, decent hosts. Bedrooms are not particularly spacious, but not too small either, so room space is adequate. In room tea-maker, small t.v. En-suite shower room with WC, all OK. The best things about this B&B are the superb breakfast with good cereal selection, fruit salad, yoghurts, toast etc and full English option too, and... More

Abbeyfields is a wonderful place to stay. The hosts are very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast is served in a lovely room, with several hot, homemade breads. We were on the top floor, so I would request a lower floor on a future visit. The location is perfect, as it's within walking distance of York Minster Cathedral, other historical sites, local...

Just had a 2 night stay at Abbeyfields. Les and Al were very attentive and showed us a map and short cuts through to the town. The room was cosy and everything we needed, including lots of information about local attractions and bars and restaurants. Breakfast was very filling and so much choice, cooked breakfast as well as freshly cooked... More

Really welcoming experience: As soon as we arrived Al went through a map with us and pointed out "must-sees," showed us shortcuts on the map, and gave us times for the free walking tour. In our room was a booklet made by them (Les & Al) not only with recommendations on everything from ghost walks to where to get late... More

A wonderful Victorian BMB with fabulous hospitality and probably the best English breakfast we've had. You wake up to the smell of fresh baking bread. Al, the host, is very accommodating and seems to know all the best places to go in town. The rooms are well appointed with all the amenities, fresh roses and a welcome packet for each... More

We stayed at Abbeyfields July 24 thru July 28. A very easy walk, if it's not raining, from the train station or a quick cab ride. Run by husband and wife Les and Al. We enjoyed our English breakfasts cooked by Al. Our bedroom on the top floor had a double bed. Bathroom was a little small but everything worked... More

The place is well within walking distance from the rail station – head towards the end of the station where the carpark is, go down several ramps, go across the bridge over the River Ouse, walk all the way straight, turn left and go through the underpass, finally turning right onto bootham terrace. The very hospitable host, Al, gave me... More

I spent two days in this lovely quiet place, with a short walk into York City centre. The breakfast is amazing with a lot of choice. My room was clean and tidied each day. The smell of the baking bread is lovely to wake up to.
