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

This is without doubt, one of the best Guest houses you will find in York. From opening the door you feel you have made a great choice. this includes Ron and Nicole, the room and the breakfast, (you choose your breakfast the day/night before, which is everything from full English to whatever your taste is) I would without doubt Recommend...

The location (on bus no11round the corner into town) is good even on foot but we took the bus because the weather was so hot. Spotless, attentive, friendly and welcoming. We came by train so if coming by car discuss with owners as parking is resident permit. Being York I am sure there will be a scheme. It is a... More

southlandsguesthouse, Owner at Southlands Guest House, responded to this review

We always respond to reviews directly to our guests who have taken the time and trouble to post us a review on Tripadvisor. On this occasion however we have taken the unprecedented decision to also respond to Tripadvisor as there are certain comments which are quite misleading to say the least. We do have guest house parking permits for a... More

As soon as they opened the door, Ron and Nicole were warm and welcoming. They had lots of tips and advice for us and were always happy to get the map to help us navigate our way. Southlands itself is immaculate and our room was spotless and cosy with a fridge with 'real' milk, bottled water, lovely clipper tea and... More

We love York and have finally found a place to stay which we can (hopefully) return to. It is ideally situated as far as we are concerned because we can walk into the city along the river. I have never stayed in a b&b so well maintained and clean. The bedroom was a generous size, nicely decorated, comfortable bed, plenty... More

My two friends and I stayed at Southlands for one night at the beginning of July. I cannot fault this guest house at all. The hosts Ron and Nicole were very friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The guest house itself is immaculate and the decor is beautiful. The position is quiet, in a residential area, and only... More

We returned again to Southlands Guest House for a short break and, as on our first visit, everything was just outstanding from a friendly welcome from Ron & Nicole (our perfect hosts), a beautiful room with bathroom and separate shower room all spotlessly clean, large comfy bed, large fluffy towels and first-class breakfast with a varied menu to choose from....
