Had a wonderful break. George and Maureen were most welcoming and friendly. The room was lovely and clean, breakfast was very good. Couldn't fault this place at all. Stunning garden area. Would certainly recommend this place. Look forward to visiting again soon.

Breakfast was excellent, served in the light and bright conservatory. Sadly we heard that Burswood Guest House has been sold as... More

Stayed here for a few days and found it really pleasant and friendly. Good value for money but probably wouldn't be great for families. Definitely worth a visit. Friendly staff in a very nice location.

We chose this B/B as it was as near to the York part of the Tour de France race which we had come to see and it certainly did not disappoint.
