Stayed Saturday & Sunday night, our room consisted of the biggest bed ever plus single bed (Room 6). Made to feel welcome, good sized room, great choice for breakfast and personalised breakfast menu ( Thanks Ian ) Within walking distance for all attractions.

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...

Great location, a few minutes walk from the City walls and the train station. Rooms were modern and clean with comfortable beds. Breakfast is superb, freshly prepared and delicious - no grease in sight! Certainly kept me going until mid-afternoon. Lovely touches like wine glasses and corkscrews available so you can sit in the garden with a glass of wine,... More

We stayed here on June 6th - 9th, very nice room, fairly close walking distance to York city. Nice breakfast and Anne was very friendly. Ian tried to be but something about him I didn't like. Nevertheless, they are moving on with new people taking over soon, so hopefully both new owners will be nice. The car parking was very... More

This guesthouse, ideally situated for the city but far enough away to be peaceful, was a great base for exploring York and catching up with the Tour. Despite losing track of time and catching Ian way too early for breakfast on the day of the Tour de France in York, he prepared the excellent breakfast and was charm personified. I... More

We have just returned from our third annual visit to York and on all these trips we stayed at the Bootham Gardens Guesthouse. We found it on the internet and liked the fact that it was close to the city walls and had off road parking. this bed and breakfast was purpose built so the bedrooms and lounge/dining room are...

My husband and I stayed for 4 days here in March and I have to say one of the best guesthouses I have stayed in. The breakfast was fantastic and such a selection, fresh fruit, different types of bread and couldn't mention all the dishes for the cooked breakfast to suit all types even the very fussy. The rooms are... More

We chose Bootham Gardens Guesthouse because it looked nice, central, and you could have steak for breakfast. We were not disappointed when we got there, the service was very good and everyone was helpful and polite. The breakfasts were always very tasty and I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone going to York.

We've just spent 5 nights in York, staying at Bootham Gardens Guest House, again (we had two visits there in 2013). The breakfasts were superb as they always are. Ian and Anne are wonderful hosts - everything is absolutely spotless. Great!
