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

I was recommended to me by my University as a place for stay during my work placements here in York within the hospitals. Debra and David have done nothing but care for me during my stay as well as allowing me to have my breakfast made before the allocated 8:30 time so I wasn't late for work. Nothing is too... More

I chose this Guest house based on the fantastic trip advisor reviews and agree that this is a lovely accomodation with a fabulous breakfast made with quality ingredients. My only gripe is that I felt that I was causing an inconvienice by requesting breakfast before the set time of 8.30 due to being in York for business rather than pleasure.

I had the pleasure of staying at Bowman's this past week and all I can say is "WOW". I booked the Blue room, the picture does on the website does not do it justice-I felt like a fairy princess in this room!!! It was beautifully decorated in blues & creams. The bed was the best I've slept on (Debra has... More

Stopped at Bowmans guest house 17th and 18th October. What a lovely guest house one of the best I have ever stopped in. Location good for the Centre of York just a gentle stroll away. Location of guesthouse down a very quiet road so no street noise to keep you awake at night. House kept in good order and very... More
