My partner and I stayed here for three nights in June and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it. It would be hard to better the location in Fossgate in the heart of the old city and a short stroll to pretty well all of the places you'd want to visit (and to shopping). And if you are traveling by car,... More

Just spent two nights in Room 2, the two bedroomed apartment, at the Blue Rooms. It was ideal for our family (2 adults, 2 children aged 14 & 11) and the perfect base for central York. We booked well in advance to secure the dates (Tour de France) and the email communication was excellent. Check in was easy and although... More

My husband and I took an overnight trip to York from London for two days. The Blue Room @ The Blue Bicycle was just what we wanted and more. Our one bedroom apartment (#5) was spotless and decorated with careful attention to detail. The unit was extremely well furnished and well equipped with a selection of complimentary treats, including champagne... More

Me and my boyfriend spent a lovely bank holiday weekend at the Blue Rooms. The attention to details is great. We stayed in room 5 which is on the ground floor overlooking the river. Peaceful and quiet, very relaxing. The staff were very helpful in every respect, Kirsty was great to me/us and would stay there again if I am... More

We stayed in Room 5 during April and had a fantastic stay. The room is beautiful, located on the ground floor with French doors opening right onto the balcony by the river, where you can feed the ducks and geese. We spent a lot of time in the apartment, mainly because we had everything we needed, and more. There is... More

All that people talk about the Blue room @ the Blue Bicycle is so true. The apartment is great, complete with many details that demonstrate care and attention to the guest. However there is not a person to do the daily cleaning of the apartament. Even if you want to hire a day cleaner, it does not have this option.... More

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and received a very warm and friendly welcome. The apartment itself was spacious and clean, with the additional bonus of complimentary bubbly, beers in the fridge and spirits as well as an honesty system for bottles of wine. A fruit basket was also there to be eaten, as well as the breakfast platter for... More

It is the second time we have stayed (and won't be the last), the rooms are immaculate, spacious and excellent value for money especially with the free parking, the Shambles a short walk away, the complimentary champagne ,alcoholic and soft drinks, fruit bowl, freshly baked bread, yoghurts and delicious Yorkshire breakfast (to cook at your leisure), yet you can open...
