We had a great experience staying at the Goldsmith's Guest House for three nights in May 2014. It is an easy walk from the train station and an equally easy walk into the Shambles. The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfasts were amazing and we really didn't even want to eat again until mid-afternoon (Tea Time!) Both... More

We were made very welcome, the breakfasts were superb & room comfortable. The only slight drawback was the small shower cubicle. However it was so handy to walk along the river bank & in five minutes you were either at the Minster, Railway station or Museum or shops & bars. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3days in York & hopefully will... More

A return visit and George cooked me a great late breakfast after I'd run York parkrun around the Racecourse on the Saturday morning. Both he and Susan were as accommodating as ever. Great price and great location as well.
