Just stayed over after a visit to the Christmas markets ( not in the same class as Manchester) Caroline is a superb host and provides really good breakfast. But i am afraid to say room 5 is very spacious its decor lets the rest of the place down. The guesthouse is quirky with plenty of character but could be so... More

Friendly hosts, spotlessly clean room and ensuite, lovely comfy beds on metal bedsteads which looked new, spacious room for a twin,(which are often tiny because they are the smaller room which won't fit a double bed in them)- this one wasn't, it was ideal for myself and my teenage son. Delicious breakfast...any combination off the cooked menu, plus fresh fruit,(mango,... More

This guest house is ideal if your travelling by train, the station is within easy walking distance. We parked our car opposite the guest house, we left it there for our 4 day visit. Easy walk into York centre along the river. Barry and Caroline do a great job. The place is spotless, the beds are comfy, the rooms are... More

Barry and his staff made us very welcome. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. The breakfasts were excellent, with a great choice of food. The City of York was just a 10-minute stroll along the river. If we ever visit York again, this is the Guest House we would return to. Have already recommended it highly to our friends and... More

The room was spotless. Parking was made available without any problems. Breakfast was a perfect full English served by the most hospitable hosts. Location was close to the city without the noise. In general, you cannot fault this place.

This is the best guest house I have stayed in for a long time. The manager Caroline couldn't be more helpful. We arrived dripping wet and she took our coats and dried them for us. A very friendly place to stay, close to train station and a riverside walk to town. Can't wait to go again.
