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

A good sized, very comfortable double room in a lovely house. It's in a great location, with a top notch breakfast served in a bright, sunny breakfast room. And such a boon to have parking in York and to be able to then walk to all the sights!

This was our second stay at Foss Bank, and we were very happy to find it was just as enjoyable as our first visit. Kevin was as ever a charming host, & provided us with refreshing cups of Yorkshire tea upon arrival. The rooms are very clean & decorated in contemporary colour schemes, & very comfortable beds.

Just spent two nights here. It's everything a B&B should be. Comfortable, clean, lovely room, good breakfast. And Kevin was really helpful but unobtrusive.Safe parking and only a ten minute walk to the area around the Minster.
