Read all the good reviews for this place, combine them altogether and your somewhere close to the truth.
Sometimes B&B owners give you the impression that your just in the way, your presence an inconvenient fact. Not so with Darren, each morning he's there talking to the new guests, offering advice on places to see, how to get there, the places to avoid and if you still look confused he even marks them all on a map for you!!
Breakfast was pleasant, we had a full English and it was of a decent standard, no cheap horsey sausages from the local supermarket. You can decide on what breakfast you want the night before and send a text to confirm your choice (this means breakfast is ready bang on time).
If i'm visiting York again i'll definately try to get a room here!
