Really friendly, family run guest house, the owners certainly gave every attention to detail. Massive comfy bed with crisp sheets and everything spotlessly clean. Breakfast was great - freshly cooked to order and loads of additional items to choose from. The fresh fruit was yummy - blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, mango, banana - all lovely. Free parking and only a 10... More

My wife and I were in York for one night to attend a wedding. We needed a place to stay that had car parking and was within walking distance of the Registry Office in Bootham. The Bootham Gardens Guesthouse met our every need. Gary and Adele made us most welcome, allowed us to leave the car in the private parking... More

Best competitive price, vegetarian breakfast choice unbeatable. Cleanliness ten out of ten. Close to all sights, nice to walk. Mainly the difference to others tried is the owners and staff were genuinely warm , friendly and helpfully with local information , oh, the beds were extremely good quality.

First time to York. Owners are very friendly and made great recommendations. Was an easy walk to the minster from bnb and quick from train station. Room was a nice size and inviting. Breakfast was great with all you could ask for. Definitely will come back

This was a pre-booked overnight stay in order to visit a concert in York. We travelled by train and then bus to the property - not too difficult to find. The private, owned guest house is purpose built for overnight stays, and we were warmly welcomed by the new family of owners. Whilst the room was rather basic but very... More

Short but enjoyable stay. Clean comfortable and very friendly. Variety of food choice for breakfast all tastes catered for here, and if you like boiled eggs then this is the place for the perfect egg or 3. Family run and they know how to treat guests.
