I chose The Blue Rooms on the strength of reviews on TripAdvisor. I am glad to say that I fully back up the high rating. We stayed in room 3 (just the wife and I) and it was perfect. The first thing you notice is the pleasant smell and the clean environment as you arrive. Everything was in very good... More

Stayed for 3 nights with friends weekend 27 November. We booked the 2 bedroom maisonette and we were not disappointed. We had a chilled bottle of champers and a basket of fruit waiting for us on arrival. The place was spotlessly clean and the décor very tastefully done. The fridge was fully stocked with breakfast goodies, as well as cereal,... More

Tucked away behind the Blue Bicycle Restaurant, you can find a few rooms to rent during your stay in York. The Blue Rooms. They are marvelous! Our family of three rented a 2-bedroom suite apartment. Heavenly! Very well-stocked and supplied kitchen. The fresh bread loaves in the morning were delicious! We had a good size sitting area on the main... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. What a great place. We were late getting to the apartment due to traffic and you check in by going into the Blue Bicycle restaurant. It was quick and painless. We were guided into the small courtyard for parkin by one of the guys from the resturant. He was polite, courteous and very helpful.... More

Booked this a month or so ago as we wanted to visit the Blue Bicycle. We had heard great things. It was a great location to nearby pubs and places to visit. Apartment was clean and warm and a gigantic bed! Breakfast provided was delicious and we really appreciated the champagne on arrival. Great nights sleep. Thank you.

I booked a studio apartment with a view of the river, and this turned out to be apartment #5, which is on the ground floor. This studio was very roomy with lots of natural light, and everything in it looked high end and brand new. The kitchen comes with a combo washer/dryer, which we were very pleased to see since...

I booked this because of the excellent reviews and I was really glad I had. The apartment is beautiful. We stayed in number 5. It is decorated and furnished to a high standard and when we walked in it felt and smelled really fresh and clean. We loved the extra touches, the champagne on ice, fruit basket and fruit juices,...

We had apartment 2 which is on 2 levels and has 2 bedrooms. It was great. We'd come up for our son's graduation so the space for the four of us was lovely. The decor was great and it was spotlessly clean. The complimentary drink including champagne was lovely. They provided so much food for breakfast we couldn't get through... More
