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

Really enjoyable stay! The guesthouse was welcoming and spotlessly clean. We couldn't fault it. The staff are great. The breakfast was brilliant and piping hot and plentiful. This is the first time we have been to York and won' t be the last and we will certainly return to the " Farthings "

Steep stairs to all other rooms. Noise Quiet residential area so no issues with traffic noise.
