Booked for one night for £90 and got an en-suite room with a 4 poster bed with breakfast.
The location is a 10 - 15 minute walk to the centre of york - if you go through the gardens you can take in some of the history there on your way.
The owners gave us a lovely welcome and whilst there were no parking spaces at the back of the hotel (there's only 3), she did show us where else we could park with a permit from her which is a big bonus in york!!!!
Our room was fairly big and had wonderful tall ceilings and a large bathroom with bath and shower.
There was lots of extras - toiletries, hairdryer, sewing kit and a great selection of beverages, though more milk would have been good (or selling some little cartons from the fridge on the stairway!!!)
The bed was very comfortable with lots of pillows,though I wasn't particularly happy about blankets on the bed rather than a duvet!!! It may be more in keeping with the house and decor but I found them very annoying, hot and both me and my husband woke up during the night because of them. Maybe just a personal preference thing!!!
The breakfast was very plentiful, wonderfully cooked and very tasty with lots of drinks and toast on offer and a great cereal and fruit buffet on offer as well.
All in all it is a great b&b - very clean, friendly, all you could ask for in facilities (including free wifi) but don't expect a modern feel - it's decorated quite chintzy but in keeping with the age of the house!!!
I'd certainly recommend!!!!
