Looked for place within walking distance of Barbican, going to concert. Unexpected bonus, found excellent B&B that we will definitely return to. Warm welcome, small but comfortable and clean room, with hosts that could not have been more helpful. Continental breakfast was top-drawer, with everything you can expect and well prepared. If you are going to York Barbican and need... More

Took my mum and grandma away for a weekend break in York and stayed at the Saxon. The proprietor was very friendly, gave us a map and directed us to the different places we wanted to visit. We had a triple room with a double bed and a single bed. The room wasn't the ritz but it was very clean,... More

Wished I hadn't booked!! Don't believe the site pics or the rating as they are very misleading. Stayed in room 3 that is depicted; laughingly, as having a four poster bed...the bed is a squeaky, metal nightmare, sporting nylon window curtains and (believe it or not) Christmas lights; complete with battery pack, wound around the bed head...wt? There are stains... More

We stayed in June 14 for several nights, having booked in advance. We have stayed in many B&Bs and this rated as a poor experience relative to others. The room was shabby and in need of painting, particularly around the skirting boards. There was no toilet roll holder in the bathroom. There was no accessible socket near a mirror in... More

Stayed here couple of nights a week for a while now. Parking is handy, always made to feel welcome, rooms are clean and tidy. The breakfast is continental with quite a lot of choice, makes a change from other places serving a a greasy fry up

I spent two nights at Saxon House last year. It´s a cozy place, clean, and the host, Debbie, was very nice! Every morning she cooked a very good breakfast. York it´s a lovely city, and The Saxon House is a good place to stay. You have to walk around 10 minutes to get downtown. An advice: bring an umbrella!!

I didn't book directly with the hotel as being on very tight budget I booked via comparison site, having done so and saved considerably I was expecting a lower level of courteousness and service. However on arrival me and my family were immediately welcomed into the building and shown to our room. The place is very clean and tidy and... More
