This was our second time at York House after a three year gap. How wonderful to be remembered, to be greeted with tea and delicious homemade cake, to have the same sumptuously appointed and comfortable room, and to be made so welcome at every turn. The breakfast was outstanding for both choice and quality. The location and setting of York... More

After a 2 year absence we revisited this charming beautifully kept B & B in the lovely town of Hay on Wye. We were not disappointed, the owners Jim & Margaret made us very welcome. The rooms are well appointed and each has its own unique character. The views from the rooms of surrounding hills are stunning as is the... More

Lynn P We have just returned from our fourth stay at this superb B & B. Quite frankly we would not consider staying anywhere else in this area. On our arrival, we are greeted warmly by Jim and Margaret and we are made to feel very welcome throughout our stay. The room is beautifully clean and has all the necessary... More

A friend and I enjoyed a two day break here in October 13 , and will certainly be back to York House. Very well situated for the town but just far enough away from the centre to be undisturbed by the occasional traffic noise of Hay. A very warm welcome and thoroughly comfortable room, good facilities and excellent breakfast, Delighted... More

This September we spent the 4th time in York House with Jim and Margaret and again is was a great stay. House, room (this time Longtown), the great garden and the peacefulness made this stay again a memorable one. Thanks to Jim for the great breakfast and Margaret for the home-made marmelade. We'd like to come back again as soon... More

For the third year in a row we have stayed at York House while we went to the Hay Festival. We stay in Clifford Room, which is spotless, well equipped, pleasant and roomy, with a lovely view over the property's gorgeous garden and the hills and fields behind it. The breakfasts are more than ample with an extensive range of... More

My wife and I stayed here for a night as part of our tour of the southwest and parts of Wales. The house was ideally situated for Hay-on-Wye and the hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming. The breakfast we had was good. We stayed in the Clifford room which overlooked the lovely garden. Our feelings of the room was that,... More

JLWesley, Owner at York House, responded to this review

We were very disappointed at your review of York House especially since we have been running the B & B for six years and this is our first negative review. Our Clifford Room is the smallest of our four rooms, it is decorated in light floral wallpaper and it is a very pretty room with lovely views over the garden... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
York House was built in 1893 and is of an unusual 'back to back' construction. It has a large south-facing garden with far reaching views of the surrounding hills. We fell in love with this pretty house and opened as a B&B in March 2007, it has much to offer the traveler with it's beautiful quiet location just a short walk from the bustling market town of Hay-on-Wye. ... more   less
