“Great little B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

Excellent value for money. It's just a short walk into the city so good for sight-seeing. We were able to reserve a free parking space which is invaluable in YOrk! We had a well-kept room with everything you need plus excellent breakfast: we are a vegetarian and a vegan and were catered for perfectly. Great communication from the owners at all times.

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

Stayed at the Chelmsford 22nd & 23rd Nov for Xmas shopping & a little break. The stay was very enjoyable from start to finish. The guest house is approx 15 mins walk from city center (option to walk along river) . A free parking space was provided right outside the guest house. The ensuite room (no1) was a good size, had a comfortable bed and and was lovely & warm.
The hosts were extremely friendly & went out of their way to ensure we had a great weekend. There was plenty of choice for breakfast & the full English was lovely.
In conclusion, we had an great time at the Chelmsford, thought it was good value for money & would definitely stay again & we would have no hesitation recommending it to friends.

Very clean. Good host. Excellent breakfast. Although the hotel is to be updated in the New Year the facilities were very good indeed. Would certainly recommend. Extremely good value for money. Very close to the Barbican Centre.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 6 at the back of property so noise of traffic. Had an excellent night's sleep...

First impression is the really friendly welcome from the management then it is comfortable and delightful - a place to relax. The food we had - venison steaks - was very well cooked and the quality of the beer and wine was top class.Obviously this is a pub which is run by people who love to take a pride in their work and the level of service reflects this. I would have no hesitation in recommending the this to anyone and I will certainly be back next time.

This is a terrific B&B for any one visiting York & it's numerous attractions, as within a 10min walk you are right in the hub of this amazing city. Steve is a good host, advising on routes to walk etc. The room was spacious for an attic bedroom, with a large bathroom. Good central heating ensured the room was always warm (& boy was it cold outside)! The quality of the breakfast could put may *top* hotels to shame, the bacon was excellent, though we found the sausage, as fine as they were, to be too herby for a breakfast sausage, (just personal taste & not a reflection on the high quality of the meat).
My poached egg was perfect each morning!
If you only do one touristy thing during your stay, the Castle Museum is a must! Gosh we had such a giggle going down memory lane in the Toy section...anyone who remembers slinkys & Cindys will have a blast!

Hi Russ n Jax,

Many thanks for your review and kind words, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay here at Chelmsford Place, and would love to see you again in the New Year. Pleased to know that you enjoyed the breakfast, this does set you up for the day lol, (We have spoken to our butcher about the sausages) so they should not be so herby in the future.

We hope you have a brilliant Christmas & New Year, and would love for you to visit again in 2014.
