We stopped in room 4 with beamed ceiling and a four poster bed. A real boutique hotel with all the equipment you could ever need although I did find the scissors to be a little blunt for cutting the sausages (the breakfast things where all very nice) The location is just magical right on the river foss. We changed the... More

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

Blue Bicycle is a bit of luxury in the heart of York City Walls, all the little treat and details are there to be enjoyed from a very warm welcome to relaxing with the complimentary champagne.

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
