This a better than your average B * B and is reflected in the price . The Place: Run by an order of nuns who have converted part of the convent into guesthouse. Just outside The Micklegate, car parking round the corner at Nunnery Lane )Thursdays free. 15 minute walk to The Shambles, 10 min walk from The National Railway... More

Clean, tidy room and very helpful welcome from the duty staff. The Bar Convent is centrally located close to the top of Micklegate and a short walk from the train station and a slightly longer, but certainly do-able walk to the centre of York. The room I had - St Marks - was very roomy and comfortable. The place does... More

Only a short walk from the train station & the town center, the convent provides an exceedingly clean & peaceful haven, especially nice for a single traveller. Easy to find & within walking distance of everything. Price is moderate & the food delicious & simple.

A really nice location near the main attractions. It has an absolutely beautiful chapel (along with an old priest hiding hole and St Margaret Clitherow's relic). Furthermore it has a lovely Cafè and gift shop and is well worth a visit. The Staff are friendly. It has a museum also.

Clean tidy, close to town and the train station, staff very helpful. Did not give it 5stars as minor faults with decor. Was allowed to check in early. There was plenty of bedding and everything was so handy for York and all its attractions. Will be returning soon

Steeped in history this grade 1 listed, characterful building houses a working convent school as well as 19 spotlessly clean rooms for B&B visitors. The award winning breakfasts are excellent. It is opposite a Weatherspoons pub with great food bargains and a short walk from the city centre. The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful. A perfect place to stay... More

I stayed two days at the Bar Convent B&B and found it basic, but clean and comfortable. It's close to all the attractions I wanted to see in York, as well as a few minutes walk to the train station. The building is a warren of small rooms and suites, but that's how they built them back then. There's a... More
