“Lovely hotel, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Stayed at the B&B as I was visiting York University early the next morning and wanted to beat the traffic. Was met by the owner who sorted my free parking for me. He was very welcoming and made my stay very pleasant indeed. The B&B itself was really clean and comfortable; the breakfast was delicious. Lots of tea & coffee in room too. Lovely B&B and great staff. Cannot fault it. Can thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Will visit again.

Room Tip: I had a room on the top floor and the stairs may be a problem if you have mobility problems.

We were welcomed by Nigel and Wendy on a cold evening and it was like staying with friends. Wendy gave us plenty of information about how to get around and what to see in York and nothing was too much to ask. The room was nice, clean and cosy and the breakfast was delicious. I would stay here again no questions!

My wife and I enjoyed an overnight stay in this very presentable, warm and inviting guest house. Wendy and Nigel were very friendly, helpful and keen to ensure that we had a good experience. Our room was compact but clean, with all the essentials and comfortable beds. Their commitment to catering for people with different dietary requirements deserves commendation, especially when even the 'bigger names' fall short of providing a personal service. We enjoyed a substantial and tasty vegan breakfast of fruit juice, cereals, soya milk, vegan sausage, mushrooms, tomato and beans, toast with dairy free spread and preserves. Flexibility regarding check in time was appreciated and the location was excellent as we enjoyed the short but scenic riverside walk into town. Thanks again for your hospitality, tailor-made service and attention to detail.

Having stayed at Chelmsford Place on a previous occasion, we decided to celebrate our 43rd wedding aniversary there and were not disappointed. We were again made to feel very welcome by Wendy and Nigel. Our en-suite room was clean and comfortable, and our breakfasts were very well cooked and presented. The guest house is, conveniently, within easy walking distance to the city centre, handy at our age, with our car at rest close to the property on a "permit" parking zone while we took in the pleasures of York once again. Thankyou Wendy and Nigel, see you next year.

Amazing Hosts, we even had a phone commentary directing us into town right to the front door on the evening of our arrival. Our hosts really do go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. Excellent breakfast, great room and location is excellent. Would recommend highly.

Would recommend anyone to stay here. Nigel and Wendy were lovely and helpful and make a great breakfast! Room was absolutely spotless and enjoyed a hot chocolate and biscuits in bed curtesy of the tea and coffee facilities in the room. Everything was literally 5 mins walk away including the museums and nice restaurants. 5* :)
