My parents, 11 year old daughter and I stayed here in the spring of 2013. It was our first trip to the UK and this B&B was one of the best places we stayed! Rooms were comfortable with private bathrooms, nicely decorated and very clean. Breakfast was served with a smile and was delicious. Easy walk to attractions and Debra... More

We (my husband and I and 75 year old mother-in-law) had a really lovely stay at Bowman's. Ample free parking outside the property.Location was perfect for us, very quiet and a flat 10 minute stroll to the centre of York. Spotlessly clean (believe me, my mother-in-law would have found dirt if there was any!) and probably the best cooked breakfast... More

Debra and Dave are both very friendly and we felt like welcomed guests in their lovely home. We had the blue room on the first floor at the front of the house. It is a small room with a small bathroom but everything you need is there and it is very clean and well furnished. A bar of chocolate on... More

I loved my stay at Bowman's guest house! Debra was an amazing host who could not do enough for me. As a student that has never been to York before Debra made me feel extremely welcome and was more than willing to help with any enquiry I had whether it was directions or with regards to my room. Upon arriving... More

Myself and husband visited Bowmans mid December. We were very impressed with the location on arrival, 5 minute walking distance into the Centre of York and York Minster couldn't be more ideal. The rooms are clean, it feels like home from home and the Yorkshire breakfast was enjoyable. We would definately stay here again when we visit York again. Look... More

Came to York for the 1st time with my girlfriend and stayed in this great B and B. Deborah was great in making us feel welcome and looking after us. The B and B is in a great location just a short walk into town and close enough from the station to walk comfortably. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough... More

My friend and I stayed here at the beginning of December. A warmer welcome could not have awaited us! Beautiful rooms, scrummy breakfast and the perfect hostess. A perfect location to explore what York has to offer. I could not recommend this place highly enough.

Excellent. Debra is a hard working and thoughtful host - never felt so looked after before! Quiet area (York is a little lively at weekends and rightly so but here is sedate) - clean and comfy rooms and an excellent attitude towards the people who stay there - they literally are the core of their business. Breakfast is home-made and... More

My friend and I spent a fantastic weekend at Bowman's. The whole place was beautifully kept, cosy and welcoming. We had a really comfortable room. Debra was amazing-attentive and caring without being in the way. She made us feel so welcome and was so helpful, offering us suggestions for places to eat. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and set us... More
