Excellence doesn't exist , but we could use this word for this B&B considering quality / price; very well located , no need to take the car to town center , private free car-park - you only need to talk to other guests during breakfast if you want them to move their cars -; we had a very quiet room...

I stayed at Bootham Gardens for 5 nights while visiting York. It was the perfect B&B--easy walking distance to town yet quiet and private. Exquisite breakfasts cooked to order from an extensive menu, and very accommodating to my gluten-free diet. Best of all were the friendly owners; Ian and Anne made me very welcome and had great tips on dining... More

This was the best B&B I stayed at during my recent trip to the UK (visited 8 cities). It was conveniently located; close to both the train and downtown York. The room was very clean, good size, functional, and the whole common area was set up to make guests feel comfortable (computer for guests to use, a nice area to... More

I stayed here with two female companions, we endured three nights here but were glad to leave. First impressions were jaded slightly by the fact the car park was barely adequate and cars were blocking each other in once it was full. I made a point of going out in the evening to make sure my car was the last... More

I stayed here with my daughter who is 13 for a long weekend. We couldn't fault this B&B at all. It is within walking distance from the train station and directly into York. We stayed in a downstairs twin room. The beds and pillows were so comfortable! The room was spotlessly clean and the en-suite more than adequate. Little touches... More

We stayed two nights in late July and it was fantastic from the initial personalised welcome meeting to the extra big bed and to the designer breakfasts. Hosts were lovely and very helpful regarding places to eat in York. Free computer use was also useful for research. An added bonus and I would point out to first time York visitors... More

My partner and I have just spent a week at this superb b&b . From the moment we arrived Ian and Anne made us feel really welcome and their passion for making your stay perfect shone through. The standard they set is second to none and can not be faulted. The room and en suite were a good size, spotless... More

We found the b&b to be exactly as described - our room was comfortable and clean with a decent sized ensuite and no doilies in sight! The guesthouse is in a great location being very close to all the city attractions. Breakfast offers a wide choice of delicious meals all cooked to perfection. Ian and Anne are great hosts and...
