Debra's a lovely lady! Soft bed; nice food. This B&B is just beside city center: 5 minutes away from the York Minster; 10 minutes away from the railway station; 10 minutes away from the Shambles and 15-20 minutes away from the Clifford's Tower.

Stayed for two nights in this guest house and can't recommend it highly enough. Room was spotlessly clean and contained everything you could possibly need, only exception being a hair drier!! Wonderful breakfast in the morning,plenty of choice and plenty of it! Deborah couldn't have been more helpful,and I would certainly stay here again next time I'm in York.

Stopped here recently with my partner. Gorgeous guest house with lots of lovely finishing touches. Breakfast was great, a lovely omelette made by the hospitable Deborah. Would definitely visit again and highly recommend.

Very comfortable and homely B & B close to the Minster and within walking distance of the station. Debra was very friendly and helpful. The cooked breakfast was very good, enough to sustain you all day! There was also a good selection of cereals and fruit and you could choose what you wanted for your cooked breakfast.

A very friendly welcome awaits you at this extremely clean and comfortable guest house. Located in a quiet area of York but only minutes away from the City Centre and the Minster, it's a fabulous place to stay whatever the reason for your visit. Delicious home-cooked breakfasts are an excellent start to the day. Highly recommendable! Diane - Leicester
