We stayed in room 5 with French doors opening onto River Foss. The room was beautiful, spacious, well equipped and so comfortable that we had to drag ourselves out for sightseeing! Abundant complimentary drinks, both alcoholic and non alcoholic, fruit, bread and full English breakfast in the fridge. The staff were very attentive and we will definitely be going back!... More

I wouldn't stop anywhere else in york. The rooms are comfy and spacious. The kitchens are well equipped and the food is lovely and the fridge is well stocked. They have an honesty bar in the room in case you want a drink and didn't want to go out. The champagne is a nice touch for that romantic weekend away.... More

This was our second stay in the fabulous two bedroomed apartment and just like the first, everything was absolutely perfect. We can't wait for our next visit. Huge thanks to all at the Blue Rooms and the adjoining fabulous Blue Bicycle Restaurant.

Everything you could want in accommodation, spotless, spacious with the added little touches that make a difference. Check in was quick and easy at the Blue Bicycle next door.
