Abbey Guest House is very well located and just a short walk from the station. We have been coming to York for many years and stayed in numerous hotels and guest houses and this is by far the nicest. We found it to be clean, welcoming and very friendly and we have in fact booked a return visit. Highly recommended.

My wife & I stayed at this Guest House from 5/8/16 till 15/8/16. a long stay of 10 days. We had previously used a now closed Guest House for the previous 10 or more years, staying over 20 times there. So we did not know what to expect at this new abode. To state that we were totally delighted is... More

Well located B&B only a few minutes walk from the railway station(follow the route described on the web-site) and the city centre. It also has private parking. Jane made us feel very welcome when we arrived with freshly brewed coffee and homemade cake. Room 4 at the back was quiet, very clean and comfortable with a good shower. Delicious breakfasts...

This is the nicest B&B I have stayed in at York, tried a few and nothing compares to this. Upon arrival allocated a parking space, whist checking in offered refreshment and home made cake, good start. The room was spotless and roomy. Bathroom large and shower powerful. Good quality towels, fluffy and toiletries. The bed was very comfortable and bedding... More

The Abbey Guest House is in a excellent location for walking into York and its attractions and offers free parking. The room though small was spotlessly clean and well appointed, bed comfy and shower powerful. Breakfast offered a good 'help yourself' cereals and fresh fruit buffet followed by a well cooked breakfast, a perfect poached egg, good quality sausage and... More

This guesthouse is in a great location on the river just a few blocks from the train station on one side, and Yorkminster, Yorkshire Historical Museum, and old walled city area on the other. From our train it was an easy walk across the river to the hotel. The river view was very relaxing and enjoyable. The York Boating Club... More

Rooms are all upstairs. No lift. Room was a decent size. Breakfasts were wonderful. Very sweet lady runs this place. Overlooks the river and cute front yard with pretty flowers. Nice location. Within walking distance of City Central. To get there from the train station (within walking distance), you must go up steps, cross on bridge, and then down steps,... More

Spent two nights in early July along with another couple. Found this property to include a great location in York, with some rooms overlooking the river. Rooms were good, and breakfast was ample, tasty and varied. Hosts were friendly, helpful with advice and made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Would highly recommend Abbey Guest House.
