A lovely clean guest house with super hosts. We stayed in the blue room which was very comfortable with all the little touches you would need, including wine glasses and chocolate!!! Breakfast was lovely and tasty, very good coffee.15 minute walk into town.

Feb 21-23, 2015. The location of the accommodation, just a comfortable walk from the Train Station and the Town Centre,, It was all rather a quiet and in a real sense unique for my wife and I. Then the reception by Debra was so warm, the meals and the décor and other amenities were all in the right place. So... More

We stayed for two nights over valentines weekend, the room was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay except a hair drier for the Mrs. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful and Debra was attentive and friendly. The guest house is a ten minute walk to the Minster, but with plenty of places to stop along the way... More

I have been meaning to write a review of my stay at Bowman's since my stay there in late October - so sorry for the late review. Bowman's is ideally situated about a 10 minute walk from the centre of York in a quiet side street and about 10-15 minutes walk from the railway station - Ideal as I travelled... More

great breakfast , all local produce really well cooked to order. The room (3) was small but fine. Lots of attention to detail and excellent shampoo and shower gel. You even get a corkscrew and cotton buds and tissues. Very quiet and the owners are very friendly and welcoming.

This is home from home comfortable in a wonderful position with a view of the Minster through the trees so really close to the centre, but quiet and really cosy. Very comfortable rooms with nice toiletries etc. Debra and Dave are amazing hosts and couldn't have been more accommodating.

I have stayed at Bowman's a few times and absolutely love it here. Debra is so friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. York town centre is only a 5-10 minute walk away so is a perfect location close to the centre, but being quiet at night to ensure a good nights sleep. I have stayed in about... More

Stayed for 2 nights to visit the Xmas markets. We booked last minute as the original hotel we booked was about a 30 min drive to York. So glad we chose Bowmans. The owners are friendly and welcoming. The street is quiet and you are supplied with a parking permit. Parking outside was no problem. The city walls are a... More
