We stayed at Bowman's on 18th and 19th September for my wife's reunion with friends from York University celebrating a 60th birthday. We thought we'd book in for a couple of nights so we could explore old haunts again. Bowman's is an immaculately clean, well-appointed guest house on a quiet road (Grosvenor Terrace) in short and easy walking distance to... More

I spent 2 nights at Bowmans with my husband, brother and sister in law. It was very clean and comfortable. Debra was a great host, lovely sense of humour(luckily for us). Daves breakfast was un-faultable, very well presented and excellent quality. Very enjoyable stay, highly recommended.

Stayed here 5th September until 7th, for my Husbands Birthday treat. Absolutely 1st Class in all aspects. Debra really goes out of her way to make everyone welcome, nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is really very good, & every taste is catered for. No hesitation of recommending Bowmans Guest House. Jan & Stephen Cruise, Cumbria .

We had a lovely stay - a great central location and clean, comfortable room. The best thing about this B&B is the personal service and the kind, friendly and flexible attitude of the owners. Also the breakfast is very, very good!

I've stayed at the Bowman's Guest house before and had another very enjoyable stay from Saturday 23rd August until Tuesday 26th August. I stayed for three nights and as usual the options for breakfast were varied. It's a good clean and comfortable place to stay at and you always receive a good and friendly welcome from the proprietor - Debra.

I lost my connection and I arrived at the house at 3:00 in the night but there was no problem to check in. The location is perfect as it... More
