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.

Just across the river and a short walk to the train station; and very close to the old town. Saved on taxi fare getting to/from the B&B. Very nice room and exceptionally nice ensuite bathroom. Good breakfast. However, Jane forgot to make us a take-away breakfast when we had an early train to catch on our last day. Also, the... More

lovely position,ideal for a York visit,a warm welcome and a comfortable room although rather on the small side,would not return despite an enjoyable 3 day stay due to the excessive card charge,certainly a first for me after many years of travel,reluctant to offer large sums of cash. david

You can not beat the location from the train station as it is only a 5 minute walk and the directions given are spot on. Large room and bath facing the river and breakfast was great. Innkeeper was helpful with activity and dining suggestions. Would stay here again when in York.

We had a lovely stay at the Abbey Guest House this month. Our hosts, Jane and Kingsley, were warm and welcoming. Our room was fabulous in that it faces the river and has great views of riverside walkers, boat traffic, etc. The owners had recently updated the decor....so pretty with Roman shades at the windows, pretty furniture. Bright and cheery.... More
