“Great English B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2005

We had a wonderful stay at Holmwood House for 3 nights in April 2005. At 70 pounds per night it would have been over our budget if not for the 3 nights for 2 special. Even though 70 pounds a night gets you their most basic room, we found it more than adequate. The room was nicely decorated, clean, and full of little extras, such as complementory toiletories and biscuits. The room was made up every day, the staff were really helpful, and the breakfast was excellent (full English, plus continental buffet). Also in a good location, 10 minutes walk to the city wall and 15 minutes walk to the railway station. Area felt safe. A hard bed and a very small shower were the only negatives about this B&B. We would definately use Holmwood House again!!

We have been to York on a number of times, and staying here was a breath of fresh air, a lovely clean, comfortable, individual room and with a small garden area sheltered from the wind to sit and enjoy the morning papers.
Other hotels we have visited whilst having been more than adequately equipped with lots of facilities ( No 24 hour room service here!) had no atmosphere and did not have the friendly helpful staff.
We had a lovely stay at this Bed and Breakfast Hotel and although they do not offer evening meals provided us with a copy of menus from over 30 local restaurants. Previous guests comments helped us to make an informed choice.
