We loved staying here! We stayed in Goodramsgate room. The owners were accommodating and very friendly. After eating the same 'Full English Breakfast' for almost a week at other B&B's, this was the best food of all. Very fresh and perfectly prepared. The owner's son Ollie was adorable and was a perfect host to our grandson. It made for a... More

Stayed for a night in Stonegate, the room was impecable and the bed was extremely comfy! The smell of fresh baked bread in the morning was the only thing that got us out of it! Location very good, just out of town but close enough to walk in. Highly recomended.

We travelled throughout England and Wales for a full month, staying in many different B&Bs, and this was our least favorite. Pros: Wonderful location, pleasant dining room, good breakfast and good communication before arrival. Cons: Most people rave about the friendliness of the hosts, but we did not have a similiar experience. We stayed four nights (never met the hostess)... More

Stayed for an early valentines weekend. Had a late check in which was arranged with the owners. Lovely couple and fantastic correspondence. Booked in for a lovely breakfast which was made even better by the owners son Ollie playing about. The room itself was gorgeous and a very comfy bed. All in all 5 star quality.

We (a family of four that includes 2 teenage boys) stayed at St.Raphael in August 2013. We had the quad room which was perfect for our brief stay: large enough and very comfortable with a couple of twin beds large enough for the boys ! St.Raphael is perfectly situated just outside of the old town on a quiet street. You... More

My girlfriend and I spent two nights here during the week. This really was a perfect location from which to explore York, a few minutes walk straight into the centre. My girlfriend and I knew that this was a special B&B as soon as we began following the detailed, accurate and easy to follow directions we had been emailed to... More

We don't usually do B&B however, we were not disappointed! 5 mins from the wall. Parking permit ready for when we arrived and didn't use the car until we had to leave which was another benefit for being so close to everything saved a fortune on parking costs. We stayed in the Goodramgate, the info book about the B&B and... More

Just back from 2 great nights in York with my boyfriend and my parents. This guest house is in a great location and is very clean and tidy with a marvelous breakfast! Our bedroom was spacious (Goodramgate) but my parents was on the top floor (The Shambles) and had a smaller bed, little headroom and was a lot more compact... More
