Just stopped over for a night on the drive home and had a lovely stay. The two hosts were really friendly and welcoming, room was comfortable, location was great and an enjoyable 10 minute walk to the centre, and tasty breakfast. When we're in York again we will definitely stay here again. Thanks!

We had our second stay at The Bloomsbury last week! We first stayed with Matt and Paul in October 2015 only 4 weeks after they'd taken over the reigns from Matt's parents. We had such a fantastic stay we couldn't wait to get book again but due to unforeseen circumstances it was nearly 11 months before we managed to stay... More

My partner and I spent two sublime nights at The Bloomsbury. The B&B is ideally located within easy walking distance of the beautiful city centre. (There is also parking available which is such a treat for central York!) We were greeted by the wonderful Matt and Paul who succeeded in making all parts of our stay exemplary. We felt immediately... More

The breakfasts were devine and utterly mouth watering and the rooms were spotlessly clean. You are made to feel so comfortable in this family run guest house that you don't want to leave.

The Bloomsbury run by Matthew and Paul is a lovely B&B outside the city walls of York. I would guess it is approx one mile to the Minster. I'm a slow walker and it took us about 25 minutes. It is an easy walk, turn right out of the B&B and you eventually come to the Minster going through Bootham... More

We stayed here for two nights, in the wisteria room. The place us gorgeous, so very well looked after and obviously loved. Paul, Matt and their staff were so welcoming.
