It does what it says on the tin! We have just returned from a great weekend, staying in The Bloomsbury. It was beyond all our expectations. It is by the far the best B&B we have EVER stayed in. The little touches made it for us; like the bottle of water in the bedrooms, the tissues and make up remover... More

We have stayed here quite a number of times now, and always have a great stay. It starts with a lovely welcome on arrival and continues throughout your stay. The breakfasts are excellent, good quality food well cooked and presented. Plenty of choice at the breakfast bar too. The rooms are good, comfortable beds. The Bloomsbury is on a bus... More

This is an excellent B&B, Matthew is so welcoming and friendly! He gave us several tips on dining and sightseeing in York that we took him up on and did not disappoint. The rooms are comfortable and had everything we needed, though I am sure if anything was required our gracious hosts could have done so. Breakfast was delicious -... More

The rooms are spotlessly clean, their breakfasts are exceptional and first class hospitality acknowledged by the Visit York 2016 Bed & Breakfast of the Year award. We've stayed in many B&Bs in York over the south side of the... More

Just enjoyed a stay at this perfect b&b. The room was decorated to a very high standard with a very comfortable bed. The welcome was warm despite our changing the arrival time several times and the hosts made us feel very much at home. There is nothing negative to say at all about this lovely place. Would recommend it to... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay at The Bloomsbury. Lovely welcome from Matthew - coffee and Paul's delicious lemon drizzle cake were a treat after our journey. The room was very nice with a lovely comfortable bed. Matthew was extremely helpful with advice on places to visit and eat. Breakfast was great and everyone was so friendly that we... More

Every room has a different theme. We stayed on the ground floor in the Magnolia, so perfect in more ways than can be mentioned. Bathroom in the room and one just outside the room; a convenient fridge just outside the room; lovely, tall ceilings with bright windows to match; perfectly appointed, details galore, with a very modern bathroom. Our hosts,... More

We stayed three nights at the Bloomsbury in June. Matthew met us at our car and showed us to our room, while Paul made us some tea. After a long days drive, it was such a gracious reception! Our room (the Wisteria) was quiet and clean, and the breakfasts were delicious. The Bloomsbury is about a 15 minute walk from... More

It fills us with such joy when a review such as this is received - it truly is appreciated. We are every fortunate that the Victorians who built the house in 1876 had the foresight to give us a lovely car park as we know how hectic (and expensive!) parking in York can be at the best of times.

This is an exceptional place to stay. A pleasant 10/15 minute walk to the centre. Warm, welcoming hosts, comfortable beds, lovely rooms and really nice breakfast and oh the lemon drizzle cake and cute dog Harvey just adds to the charm. We only stayed one night but this is the only place I'll stay at when I next visit York.
