We spent two nights here during our trip to UK. From the moment we arrived we felt these people would look after us!! Nothing was too hard. The rooms were good with lovely King size beds and ice crisp sheets!! Breakfasts were delicious with a wonderful assortment of fresh fruit, cereals and options for cooked breakfast. Deane and his parents... More

Short walk from all attractions. Warm and friendly welcome. Spotless , comfortable room. Breakfast could not be bettered for quality and variety. Has the added benefit free of off road parking. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

We stayed at Bootham Gardens for only one night and it is just lovely. The rooms are spotless, modern, comfortable and Adele is reason enough to go there as she couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. We had dinner at Lucias, (Adele's recommendation) and it was really fabulous. The breakfast is the best I have seen and eaten in... More

I have just returned from a weekend in York for my daughters suprise 30th Birthday treat, I chose Bootham Gardens primarily for the location and off road parking, also after reading some previous reviews, But Oh My Word, what a fantastic place, the photo's, previous reviews, and even their website don't do this place justice, From the welcoming arrival by...

This is the best,by far, of the many guest houses we have stayed in in York over the last 40 years! We had a lovely warm welcome from Gary who showed us to our twin room on the first floor. It was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. There wasn't anything missing! And breakfast! Don't think we've ever seen such... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in the 1st floor room overlooking the front of the property. The property was very clean modern and quiet with only about 6 bedrooms. The bedroom for a B&B was a fairly decent size. There was a king sized bed and ensuite with shower. The owners were welcoming and friendly. The quality of the breakfast... More

Fantastic place for the whole family to get together. The hosts could not have been kinder or more thoughtful...from Champagne and cakes left out for our arrival to a framed photo of us all having a celebration meal for Mum's 80th birthday... we'll definitely be back!

Such a lovely, warm, accommodating guesthouse. Our party pretty much took the place over and Dean & Adele could not have been more welcoming. Rooms were great and breakfast was amazing - go for the halloumi, you won't be disappointed! Extras such as cupcakes & fizz were unexpected but very welcome as they knew it was a special birthday. They... More

This week we visited Bootham Gardens Guesthouse for my mother in-law's birthday. It was excellent. Adele, Dean and the team made us so welcome. Nothing too much trouble. Spotlessly clean, comfortable rooms, delicious breakfasts and some really thoughtful touches. I cannot recommend the Bootham Gardens Guesthouse enough. Thank you!
