Being somewhat handicapped I requested a ground-level room and was delighted with its comfort and ambience. I was also pleased to find sufficient wall outlets to recharge all of the electronic stuff we seem to feel compelled to travel with these days. Also room to plus in my travel CPAP machine. Breakfast was marvelous and the staff were pleasant and... More

Comfortable rooms, quiet street, tasty breakfast, a personable and thoughtful host, and a friendly dog to boot! Really enjoyed our stay at The Farthings, which is walking distance from the historic center of York (Roman Walls, Micklegate, The Shambles, Yorkminster Abbey, and PUBS GALORE).

This guest house is 17 minutes from the railway station, walkable but it's quite a distance if you have a lot to carry. There is only one bus passing the closest stop and it comes every half an hour, so I often chose to walk to the city centre instead of waiting. Around the guest house is a quiet residential... More

The guest house is very nice. It's clean and comfortable and has everything you need. I had an en suite room. The beds were terrible (too soft and in need of new mattress) they did provide a board for under the mattress which slightly improved it. Bathroom was a good size and very clean. The room was lovely. Breakfast was... More

This was our first B&B experience, but one of many on our England trip. The bar was set high after staying here. The service was amazing, the owners are wonderful. The guest house is immaculate, the rooms, spotless and the breakfast amazing! The location is great for walking in to York, it's in a great neighbourhood. Another benefit was that... More
