Not far out of town, this well maintained townhouse provides large comfortable rooms, top of the range breakfasts and a very warm welcome. The twin bedded room at the front is well appointed, with a very clean and modern bathroom with shower over. There is a small amount of traffic noise, but we are light sleepers and still were not...

Once again our stay in York is made so much more special by staying at The Bloomsbury. This B & B is the best by far, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is amazing. Matt and Paul are excellent hosts and take the time to speak to you at breakfast which makes it more personal. We enjoyed...

I stayed at The Bloomsbury in York for one night. It is very convenient for all York attractions. Paul and Matt are very friendly and helpful (delicious cake and tea when we arrived) The Freesia room is cosy and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious (fresh not tinned fruit!) I would love to stay again. Excellent value. It certainly deserves the award...

We stopped for three nights in the Peony Room at The Bloomsbury and we were really impressed with the hosts Matt and Paul. They greeted our arrival with real warmth and made us feel very welcome straight away. The room was lovely and the breakfasts were just superb. The Bloomsbury is about a ten minute walk from the City centre...

My partner and I had booked at the Bloomsbury for a short weekend trip to York, and were met by Paul upon check-in. Immediately he offered a choice of rooms, including an upgrade to our booked room at no extra cost. Before we'd settled into the room, a tray with tea for two and slices of cake had arrived! Throughout...

We arrived at the Bloomsbury after flying from Boston to London, then London to Manchester, then taking a train from Manchester to York. We were exhausted! Matthew was there to welcome us with tea and lemon cake. We followed his recommendation for dinner at a local pub and had an excellent meal. We slept in the downstairs super king room...

I found The Bloomsbury through the Visit York website after struggling to find many properties with availability for the dates we wanted and chose it based on other reviews and the awards it had won. Ahead of the visit, I...
