From the welcome texts received from Simon on the day of my arrival, to my leaving the day after, everything was perfect. The bedroom was exactly as described (unusually!!) and the breakfast.......gosh what a choice. If I could have eaten more, I would have - it was such an extensive menu.

We enjoyed our stay very much, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast and service were excellent and staff friendly. We would certainly stay again. Our only criticism was the room slightly small but I know rooms are to be made larger in the near future. Overall a really nice stay.

Wow where to start. Number 21 stood out when planning our first trip to York due to the fantastic reviews and it certainly did not disappoint. The welcome we received started with a text message from Simon on the day of our arrival wishing us a safe journey and continued when we arrived. Simon has a fantastic knowledge of the... More

A lovely property with comfortable rooms, fluffy towels and robes and a fabulous breakfast. Really well located for the Minster and the sites of York. Simon and Andrea couldn't have been nicer of more helpful. I'll certainly be back.

Stayed here for a weekend break. It is a lovely place to stay, location is perfect, just a short walk through the gardens to the centre of York. We stayed in room number 9 right on the top floor which is a lovely room with a massive bed! Simon, the host, was very friendly and helpful. There was lots of... More

This must be one of York's hidden gems. My wife won a two night stay but I imagine we will be returning soon. The quality of the room and facilities are superb ... Nothing is too much trouble for the owner Simon. Home made bread, delicious cooked breakfast, good coffee i could go on but my advice is to make... More

I won a two night stay here and I LOVE IT 😃 We had the ground floor room which looked out over a small but pretty garden. Our host Simon is a wonderful font of knowledge and very nice host. Our room had a bathroom with a shower and a gift box of toiletries which was a nice surprise, bathrobes... More

We had a lovely 2 night stay mid week - the welcome from Simon & Andrea was very friendly. The bed was superbly comfortable - the location is very quiet but very close to he centre of York. Breakfast was scrummy & kept us going for ages.

We had an excellent stay at the no. 21 guesthouse. The rooms are clean and well kept and Simon our host was fantastic. The breakfast is especially excellent and made to order all in very welcoming surroundings. The place is close to everything you could want in town and also a short walk to the station. We would definitely stay... More

We booked as a birthday treat and honestly have asked for more from our stay. Simon and Andrea were excellent. The room was great, we were very well looked after, breakfast was more than you could eat. Simon was also very helpful with his knowledge of the local area. We have recommended No 21 to anyone who will listen. We... More
