Just stopped at the Foss bank guest house, what a lovely warm and smashing experience. It's made me feel like I want to up root when I retire and live there. Kevin can't do enough for you just try it if you don't believe me:-D

My parents have stayed at Foss Bank for many years and I must say sometimes my type of nice isn't always what my parents perceive as nice!! But this time I was shocked (sorry mum and dad) Unbelievably, mum and dad got lost as the sat nav took them into York a different way or so they say haha, I called Kevin who was most kind and directed us perfectly (whilst laughing) and even had the door open for us when we arrived chuckling. My husband and my daughter who is 2 shared the family room (room 5) and when we were kindly taken to our rooms I was shocked to see how clean, beautifully decorated and perfect it actually was. Our breakfast was wonderful, actually the best I've ever had. Kevin presented us with a map and was most helpful and polite tending to every little thing we asked for, he even provided milk for our daughter to enjoy in her bottle and warmed it up for us on request. Opposite Foss Bank there is a river of which there are lots of ducks and swans, we fed them most days which was really nice. Our daughter Isabelle presented Kevin with a colouring she did all by herself on our last morning to say thank you for our fantastic stay and we can't wait to go back next year. I cannot find a fault with our stay which is disappointing as I can always find a negative normally but wow, if you want luxury, warmth, hospitality in a clean, friendly hotel visit Foss Bank, thank you Kevin xx

Location is very close to the downtown 5-10min walk, 20min walk from the train station. The room was great! Very large for Europe! We had a seating area plus room to move around! Kevin was very nice, and his breakfast was awesome! The fruit bowls and english breakfast was very yummy! Definitely would stay here again if we have the pleasure of visiting York again!

Another great stay this summer, forget the rest and definitely try the best B&B in York ! Well done Kevin - a fantastic host once again with great hospitality and a warm welcome. Great location for York city centre and surrounding attractions & an ideal base to explore from particularly after one of Kevin's great breakfasts. We will return !

A great B and B only 10 minutes from the centre of York. Fantastic service and attention to detail. Breakfast was great. Kevin was very helpful and recommended places for us to see and do. Highly recommended.
