I chose this B&B to stay in as it was a short walk to the station and previous reviews had mentioned superb breakfasts and outstanding cleanliness. I found all of these things to be true.
Carole has a deep love of York and an engaging way of sharing her knowledge of the city. This is one of the friendliest places I've ever stayed, every staff member we spoke with made us feel like we were at home and welcome.
Extremely comfortable rooms, the bed linen is spotless and snug. Our ensuite was small but perfect, lovely hot shower and very thoughtful, eco-friendly toiletries. Beyond the standard shower gel was hand cream, face cleanser, cotton wipes and buds, those things one may forget when packing and be grateful to find on hand at the other end.
The house is a short walk into town so we had the benefit of being close to everything yet weren't inconvenienced by the sometimes noisy night life that a more central hotel would have had as a free extra.
All in all, we loved the place, we loved Carole and her staff, the location was ideal, the price was excellent. The only thing I will ask for on my next visit is a half size breakfast as the breakfasts are absolutely delicious and huge. You must try the whisky porridge. I am a convert!
