We had a long weekend break in early December and found this B&B to be very clean and hospitable. It is very close walking distance to the Minster but far enough away from night life noise. The breakfast and service were both excellent and would strongly recommend this as an ideal place to stay when visiting York.

Me and my girlfriend have been to York on quite a few occasions and have stayed in a few hotels and guest houses etc. This one was great from the moment I pulled up in my car.

This family run guest house is first class. You really won't find a better place to stay in York. My partner arranged the stay as part of a birthday treat and I can't sing the praises of the team highly enough. Nothing was a problem for the team and their recommendations for things to do and places to visit were... More
