Once again Kevin and Val have triumphed. There's nothing too much trouble at Foss Bank, breakfast is super, and bedrooms are immaculate. Add a quiet location within walking distance of the city centre and you have the perfect B&B. I'll be back in November.

We have stayed at this B&B on several occasions, and would never stay anywhere else. It's ideally situated only a short walk into town. The premises are immaculate and the food is always lovely, highly recommend it.

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.

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
