“Best place to stay in York”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2011

We loved our stay and the most wonderful bed and breakfast in York. We were trying to stay in the bed and breakfast next door and it was booked so they recommended the Holgate Bridge, we were sooo happy with the recommendation. We loved the B&B. The staff and owners were amazing! The owners were most helpful in telling us where to go and what to see. They were very friendly and helpful. The room was gorgeous and offered wifi as well as a small sitting area and very clean bed and bath. We loved our front bay window overlooking the street and garden. We stayed for two nights and were not disappointed. Both mornings the breakfast was made by the owner himself with the help of a very friendly staff :) We loved the dining area with the gorgeous fireplace. The B&B was well within walking distance of downtown York and it is in a very safe neighborhood. We felt safe walking at 11pm with our one year old daughter in her stroller. Thank you again for such a great stay we will be back!

I booked the Holgate Bridge for myself and 5 friends to celebrate my 30th birthday with a day at the races. We arrived on the Friday and stayed until the Sunday. We booked two family rooms which consisted of one double and one single bed and an ample shower room and toilet. Both rooms were spacious enough for 3 ladies getting ready for the races and very clean. Staff were on hand throughout our stay to cater for our every need including taking photos for us and giving us their restaurant recommendations. This wonderfully homely B&B and its friendly staff went above and beyond our expectations, The breakfast was delicious and at £30 per night with breakfast included. unbelievable value for money. 10 mins slow stroll into town. What more can you ask.
Well done Holgate bridge!

We stayed at Holgate B&B in April, it wasn’t brilliant, but it was OK. Easy to find and only a short walk from the city walls. The owners were nice, breakfast good and served promptly even at busy times. The room was basic, but clean, towels changed daily, there was a kettle, tea, coffee, etc. It would be nice to be able to open the window – the stuffy smell of the room was probably its only downside. The windows were old and looked like they’d break if you tried to open them, so we only tried once and gave in. The extractor fan in the shower room didn’t really do its job, it was rather loud as well, and opening a window would work much better.

It was the cheapest option available within reasonable distance from the town that included breakfast. All in all, good for budget travellers, if you only sleep there and don’t mind a few minor flaws.

If you like value for money and very freindly service with a lovely clean room thrown in, then this is the place to stay in york...We will most likely be going back time and time again as we are very often in the area and have never been as pleased with a hotel!!
we travelled from scotland and were there on the day of the royal wedding... My partner and our daughter and I had a lovely time there..Many thanks to the staff and management...keep up the good work and we will see you again soon... June Gavin and Estella xxx

Room Tip: ask for room 2...its like a little apartment

Just been taken over by new owners (now linked with the hotel next door) and they're working through redecorating - we were given a room which had been recently painted with new blinds etc.

Service was good - we didn't have towels and a hairdryer when we arrived (not so good!), but they were quick to bring them up to the room.

Breakfast was disappointing - undercooked eggs and cold toast!

Don't expect luxury, but it's cheap, clean and 15 min walk to the centre (5 mins bus to the train, 10 mins to the minster).
