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.

Absolutely the best accommodation we have had through-out Europe andUK. Fully equipped kitchen(just like home). Champagne on arrival, free drinks, and fruit and supplies to cook your own breakfast. Great view from room 3 to the swans and ducks on the river. Free parking and very central, could walk everywhere with ease.thoroughly recommend, it is worth the money!

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

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.

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.
