Stayed here for 3 nights this week & couldn't of asked for a better stay in York. Our room was lovely & clean & the continental breakfast was more than enough with so much choice.

Very clean and comfortable B&B. Very good continental breakfast. Very close to the centre so only a short walk into York itself and all tourist attractions, bars and restaurants. Will definitely be staying again in the future. Highly recommended!!

Very disappointed with this it look nice on the website but did not deliver. Smelly shower and a poor breakfast. Small details were missing, just needed a few personal touches. Won't be booking again.

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

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
