“Another lovely visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

A little late in posting my thoughts, but its so good here its deserved.
Had a two night stay, and this time brought slightly fussy friends to visit, as the standard is so high.
Everything was once again spot on, very clean, bathroom great, with a strong power shower.
We enjoyed another good fun visit here,
highly recommended

We first stayed at Southlands five years ago and based on our experience at that time we were looking forward to a return stay. We were not disappointed ! Karen and Steve have created an environment which we have found unsurpassed. So much attention has been given to detail. Our room(2) was spacious,bright,spotless and comfortable.
Breakfast was top notch and nothing was too much trouble.
Free car parking outside the front door is a real bonus especially as it is only a pleasant short walk into the City. Wifi readily available too

Room Tip: All the rooms are outstanding but Room 2 is exceptional.

our 2nd time to the southlands and once again i have to say a truly wonderful stay. we stayed in room 2 which is very spacious, bright and spotlessly clean. attention to detail is amazing. the breakfasts are the best you will taste anywhere. (award winning!) with a wide range of choice.with free car parking outside the door and york centre or racecourse a short stroll away this b&b is a must for anyone visiting york. you wont meet more friendlier hosts than karen and steve who will go out of there way to make your stay a comfortable one. many thanks and looking forward to seeing you again.

We can't speak highly enough of our visit to Southlands and recommend it for any length of stay. My daughter and I shared a family room which was bright and spacious, very comfortable, spotlessly clean, well equipped and reasonably priced. Karen and Steve are excellent hosts, and the breakfasts were second to none with a wide variety of both cooked and cold choices and lots of vegetarian options. The beautifully presented fresh fruit and Greek yoghurt starter made the perfect appetiser and there is a great blend of coffee too. We were able to park right outside the guesthouse and didn't need to use the car as the City centre is easily walkable with good directions from Steve. We accessed the WiFi with no problem though only used it briefly. Southlands is in a gem!

Room Tip: No problems with noise in our road-side room so would recommend any

Southlands was immaculately clean, the breakfasts were delicious and we could not have been made more welcome by Karen and Steve.

The only slight problem was that internet was advertised, but we found it fell over every time we tried to use it (we were there for 6 days). Normally, it wouldn't have mattered that much, but we were working and needed the access. If this is corrected, the guest house would be faultless.

What a find in York. Karen and Steve make you very welcome and will help in any way they can. Breakfast is lovely especially the little extras such as homemade scones or tarts. You don't need lunch! Rooms are lovely, I have stayed in all of them and each has it own quirks! Very comfy beds. Easy walk into York, go through Rowntree Park and spend some time people watching.
Thanks to Karen and Steve for providing an oasis of calm when I needed it and often at short notice.
