Stayed just one night but would happily return for more. Very clean rooms, comfortable beds and clean spacious bathroom. Owners very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was plentiful and very tasty. Free wifi and parking was much appreciated. Close enough to walk into town easily and in just a short space of time which made our stay very enjoyable.

Fantastic place with great rooms, quiet location, great breakfast choices and very tasty too. Nice lounge area and courtyard outside and free parking. Pleasant walk down to the Minster and old York streets and plenty of good restaurants nearby. Extremely helpful hosts and definitely worth a return visit. Only suggestion is to have larger bath towels!

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.

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

Lovely clean airy room, tasty breakfast selection, great hosts and just a general feel-good atmosphere.. add in the convenient location and off street parking then we couldn't have asked for more... and...
