Lovely guest house. Booked on the spur of the moment and luckily they had a spare room. The room was very clean and large on the ground floor. The bed was lovely and very comfortable. The staff very lovely and the breakfast wonderful. Very close to town and the Minster so ideally located. The parking a bit squashed but off the main road. Would definitely recommend this Guest House as it is lovely.

Room Tip: I don't know what the other rooms are like but room 2 is lovely.

was here for 2 nights... Very cosy place to stay with a hearty breakfast every morning... a bit far from the train station if you're having heavy luggage but otherwise, it's near to the attractions... Definitely a place to choose to stay when in york...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of November to visit York.

If that's what you're planning to do then it's a top location. Close enough to the train station to walk to & very close to the Minster. York isn't a particularly big place but from the front door of the Hazelwood you're only about a 15 minute walk to Cliffords Tower which was the furtherst attraction away, but with so many shops to peer in as you walk past it may take longer!

We paid top whack for the 4 poster suite. The bedroom was clean, plenty of storage space & the bed was very comfy. The only let down really was the bathroom which was a bit dated and the shower wasn't as powerful or large as we'd hoped. There was no bath either.

Staff were very friendly and the fried breakfast was superb. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for two nights in November. Great location within easy walking distance of all city centre attractions. Staff were really helpful but unobtrusive. Room was lovely (four poster) - plenty of space, very clean, warm and comfy. Nice touch having delicious home-made cake on arrival. Room was really quiet - would definitely stay again. Easy walking distance of minster and rail station, and good tips in hotel brochure on places to eat evening meal nearby. Thoroughly enjoyed our short trip (despite the dreadful weather!) Really good to have key and be left to your own devices - stayed in other places where you have to hand keys in as you leave the building.

Room Tip: Street at front is very quiet cul-de-sac - no traffic noise

We have just spent 3 days in York, staying at The Hazelwood. A great location, just 400 yards from York Minster and with everything in walking distance. In fact, we didn't use the car the whole time we were there. Room was comfortable although the central heating banging and vibrating noise (near room 4) was a bit tedious and woke us up two nights out of three. Proper english breakfast though and good, friendly service. There is a lounge for guests but we didn't use it.

Room Tip: Beware of the noisy central heating near room 4!
