Bowman's is nicely situated and a perfect base to explore York, just 15min walk to the centre. Parking was a real bonus. Deborah and her partner keep this guesthouse to a fine standard and rooms are very nice and clean. The breakfast was quality and substantial..I would return without hesitation...

What can I say that hasn't been said before about this absolutely charming accommodation and Debra, the most beautiful host together with David who prepared my delicious hot breakfast for the 3 mornings I was there. Thoroughly enjoyed my 1st stay in a B & B in the UK and wouldn't hesitate to return if I am ever in York... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. Our room (The Blue Room) was beautifully decorated and the fresh flowers were a lovely touch. The breakfast was delicious and the hosts were incredible friendly - we only met Deborah but she made us feel very welcome & provided us with free tickets for York Minster. We both... More

We spent 3 wonderful nights at Bowman's Guest House in York. We have stayed here on numerous occasions and continue to enjoy the hospitality and the comfortable accommodation. The room was very comfortable and the breakfasts were excellent. Thank you, Debra for another great stay!

We were greeted by Debra who was very pleasant and helpful, straight away giving us a parking permit for the rest of our stay. Debra then showed us our room which included tea/coffee making facilities, towels and toiletries and a welcome bar of chocolate! Our room was... More

My first worry was, knowing York's windy narrow streets, was finding Bowman's. No problem, down the inner ring road turn left and you have arrived at your destination. A nice quiet location with no noisy neighbours. Debra had left us a parking permit, we unloaded the car and set off into York. It really is only a 10 minute walk... More
