“A belated review on this excellent B&B.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2009

We are from Thailand and stayed 2 nights at Four Seasons during early May and wished we had longer to take in all the attractions of York. This was my Thai wife’s 4th visit to the UK having stayed in several B&Bs previously and she says that the Four Seasons is without doubt the best B&B that she has ever stayed in. I would further add that the couple (Bernice & Steve) running this establishment are the nicest and friendliest people you could ever meet who made us most welcome from the moment we arrived until checking out. The booking was hassle free, the breakfast was excellent and the rooms spotlessly clean with plenty of amenities. The B&B is located in a quiet road and convenient to get to York centre which is about a 10 minute walk away and also convenient enough to walk to the train station about 15 minutes away. All in all I would definitely recommend this B&B.

We stayed at the Four Seasons for a weekend in February. It is pretty close to the city centre, and to the train station - the quickest way to the station is across a footbridge which is part of a railway bridge. However, finding it by following the roads is pretty straightforward.

It's a great place to stay with really friendly, helpful hosts and great food. The ground floor room that we had was pretty big, with a great bathroom and a really good-sized shower.

All in all, thoroughly recommended.

A wonderfully located little guest house - just eight minutes walk from York Minster and the Shambles. Our room was warm, spotless, well equipped and attractively furnished. Our host and hostess could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Breakfast, which had to be ordered the previous evening, was fresh, filling and delicious. Luxurious accomodation at B+B prices - a real find.

We stumbled over the Four Seasons on Trip Advisor after our previous hotel had let us down and we needed to re-book leaving the same day. Lucklily I called the Four Seasons and spoke to Steve and I'm very glad I did. He gave me directions over the phone from the South and the hotel was really easy to find, just off the main road into a small quiet cul-de-sac. As others have said from the moment we arrived and were greeted by Steve and Bernice nothing was too much trouble, we had a lovely and very welcome coffee on arrival and could take our pick of brochures about things to do in York. When we went upstairs we had the lilac room over looking the front garden (with York Minster in the distance) which was well decorated and absolutley spotless. The beds are some of the comfiest ever! Breakfast the following morning was delicous, we'd pre-ordered our fry up but there was also cereals, yoghurts etc (and the best fruit salad) all served with a smile. York is a beautiful place with loads of things to see and do and I can't wait to go back - We'll definatley be staying with Steve and Bernice again and would recommend it to anyone.

The four seasons was the perfect getaway. The hosts, Bernise and Steve, and just so helpful and so pleasantly nice! Nothing was too hard for them and they were one of highlights of our trip! The breakfast is first rate with lots to choose from and freshly prepared. The walk into town is less than 10 mins so the location is also excellent. The rooms are a good size and very clean. Would thoroughly recommend this B&B to anyone.

My son and I stayed at the Four Seasons for four nights in January. It was our first visit to York and our choice of accommodation couldn't have been better. Steve and Bernice are the perfect hosts. Attentive and kind, they went out of their way to make my teenage son feel at home. The breakfasts are splendid (porridge highly recommended).

Our room was large and comfortable, with lovely mauve fabrics, and a peaceful view across the street in front of the house (which is a solid and beautiful Victorian brick home). St Peter's Grove is a cul de sac so there was no traffic noise.

The old section of York is a pleasant 15 minute walk from the hotel through Bootham Bar and there is a Sainsbury's supermarket on the way. The railway station is slightly further but not more than 20-25 minutes walk or a five minute trip by taxi. It's very easy to find your way around and maps and information were available at the hotel. The tourist information office is near Bootham Bar.

York is fabulous. We visited - and loved - the Minster, the Castle Museum, and the National Railway Museum. An evening ghost tour was fun (though cold work in mid-January!). Shopping was excellent. Try Little Betty's in Stonegate for a traditional (though quite expensive) high tea.

We hope to return before too long and will certainly stay with Steve and Bernice when we do.

We went to York to celebrate a birthday and a anniversary and chose The Four seasons from the York Tourist brochure hoping it would be a good.. It was, in fact it was a lot better than we imagined. We received a delightful welcome with a cup of tea and delicious cake. The room was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and warm despite the very cold weather. Breakfasts were superbly cooked and presented and the owners made every effort to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The price may be at the higher end of the scale but it is worth every penny and The Four Seasons is very much to be recommended.
