Fantastic stay at this guest house. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful. We booked last minute, and Nicole and Ron, couldn't have been more helpful, gave us suggestions of where to eat and pleasant walks into the centre. The Guest house only a 10 minute walk from train station and easy to find.

I may be repeating all that has already been written about Southlands in the other 5 rated reviews - Ron and Nicole are the perfect hosts. The recommendations for dinner, drinks, sites, tours (they even knew the tour schedules by heart) were all excellent. The reservation process was easy and very attentive to ensuring a smooth arrival including the parking... More

We had a perfect two night stay at 'Southlands'. All aspects of our visit were outstanding. After parking in a conveniently reserved space and settling into our immaculate room, we were presented with a lovely pot of Yorkshire tea. Nicole and Ron's warm, thoughtful and friendly approach across our stay ensured that our trip away was one of the best!

Ron and Nicole were the perfect hosts. It was so lovely to pull up and have a parking spot reserved. We were welcomed with a drink and cookies. There were also chocolates for each of us, hot chocolate and water. We stayed in the Minster, which had enough room for 3 of us. The walk in to the city took... More

We had an overnight stay in York and stayed at Southlands after reading such great reviews. We were not disappointed, Ron and Nicole welcomed us warmly to their lovely Guest House. We were able to park right outside as they have their own private parking spaces, a huge bonus when visiting York. The room was cosy, comfortable, tastefully decorated and... More

My two friends and I have recently stayed at the Southlands for a 3 days break in July. One of my friends picked Southlands after reading the good reviews on this website and I cannot fault this guest house at all. We were very kindly put into a triple room called Minster. It's well proportioned, extremely clean, light and airy... More

We are regular visitors to York and Southlands is our B&B of choice. With just 4 rooms, all different but all very comfortable, offering excellent value in a lovely house, you can see from the other reviews that every visitor finds this a lovely place to stay. The married owners, Ron and Nicole, are so helpful and pleasant, and clearly... More

We have recently stayed overnight at Southlands Guest House and what a gem of a place to stay. Our room and bathroom was spotless and beautifully furnished. The small fridge in the room had chocolate treats in it, together with milk and water (much better that milk left out all day awaiting a return home from sightseeing) The breakfast had... More
