“Good location, comfortable, clean and helpful with a great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The Foss Bank is in a very convenient location and offers parking, which is important in York. The rooms are all kept spotlessly clean and have good quality mattresses and nice views. Kevin the host is very helpful and sensitive. And the breakfasts are excellent - nicely cooked from high-quality local ingredients. We've stayed twice and will go again. It's a great choice to enjoy the best of York.

We have stayed at Foss Bank Guest House several times and it is one of our favourite places. Kevin is always friendly and helpful, the rooms lovely and breakfast delicious. We would'nt stay anywhere else in York.

We recently stayed for a long weekend, this was our 2nd visit to the B&B. Kevin, the host, is very helpful, the en-suite room was excellent; clean and tidy. The bed was very comfortable and a good variety of chioce at breakfast. It was just a short walk into the town centre and as a result we ended up staying an extra night. We have recommended this B&B to family and friends.

I was visiting York on my own to see my new born grand daughter for the first time. I stayed in the single room for 2 nights. Everything clean and comfortable. Kevin is a wonderful host, very helpful. The breakfasts are great. I will certainly stay again and recommend to other family members visiting my son. Foss Bank beats many chain hotels.

We stayed at the Foss Bank for a long weekend. The room was a good size with separate en-suite (large bath with good shower.) it was very clean, large free view TV, good hairdryer and comfortable bed. The room was very peaceful. We were made to feel very welcome by the owner Kevin, who helped us to our room with our luggage and then made us a pot of coffee, which we drank in the guest lounge. The breakfasts were delicious. The guest house is just a short 5 minute walk from the City centre, so we left our car parked in the guest house car park for our entire visit. Foss Bank is great value for money and I would highly recommend it for anybody looking to stay in York.

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the guest house.

We have made many visits to Foss Bank, thoroughly enjoying each one, bringing friends with us on our most recent visit who couldn't compliment the location and accomodation enough. 5 minutes walk from the city, spotless accomodation with excellent service and hospitality. Will be returning very soon.
