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.

Have just had a 2 night stay as our first ( but not last ) visit to The Blue Rooms. Excellent apartments in a central location. 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. A bottle of welcome bubbly... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. We were in room 3, large one bedroom apartment with a tiny balcony overlooking the River Foss. Very spacious, extremely comfortable, central and as has been said before, lots of complimentary drinks and food. Couldn't fault it, would stay again without question.

Perfect accomation, very very central, fantastic facilities, took my mum and sister as a thankyou after my wedding. Lovely for a special occasion of any kind, even stayed in and cooked one night in the lovely kitchen. M & S is just 2 mins walk away. The fresh fuit & bread and alcohol were a great bonus.
