We stayed here for our honeymoon. From the moment we arrived, it felt like a welcoming establishment. Kevin, the owner was a lovely & very helpful man. He helped us with our baggage and gave us some very helpful tourist information. The room was immaculately clean with an ensuite bathroom. Breakfast provided was fantastic every morning. As we're creatures of... More

It was exactly as advertised, warm friendly welcome, clean tidy rooms with all the facilities you require. Kevin was able to give some good advice on where to go, and places to eat and all within a short walk. We would go again and happily recommend it to others.

We have just returned from a 3 night break here. I cannot praise this guest house enough. The welcome was warm, the room was lovely, very clean and the breakfast was very good too, nothing was too much trouble. I would not hesitate to recommend Foss Bank Guest House to anyone who is looking to stay in York.

The host Kevin was kind and very accommodating as we had to leave early the next day. He offered to make us breakfast before 7:30 although we didn't take this offer up as we had to do the York 10k. So I cannot comment on how the food was although I'm sure it would be nice. The room we stayed... More

Everything you'd expect from a quality B&B. Large comfortable room with good ensuite facilities. Excellent breakfast choices. Warm welcome and attentive hosts throughout. Easy access to city centre and rail station by bus (no 13 or 14) or on foot. Remember it's in the city so expect some traffic noise. We'd happily stay there again.

We have been coming to Foss Bank for years now, and Kev and Val never fail to make our weekend perfect. Despite being flooded earlier in the year they have refurbished and refitted the damaged areas and are back up to speed without so much as a hitch. Everywhere is immaculate and spotlessly clean, the full English breakfast is an... More

Just got home from our first stay at Foss Bank as it was recommended by friends and I have to say it is possibly the nicest guesthouse I have stayed in. Kev and Val were such warm and friendly hosts with so much information about the local area. The rooms are lovely with comfy beds and a mix of feather... More
