From arrival to departure we felt part of the happy ambience in this truly quality home, I say home, as it felt like that special place, nothing too much trouble and everything just right. Breakfast and the extra treats simply, 1st class, quality food cooked to perfection. Sad the weekend is over but I'd give a personal 6***** without hesitation....

On arrival at lunch time we were greeted by Matthew Paul and Harvey (dog)..A genuine warm welcome, into what we were to find is a beautiful residence, full of character,furnished and decorated in such fine taste. Matt took our case up to 'our' Holly Berry room, box of...

This really was a lovely stay. Everyone that works there is extremely friendly, they get the balance spot on with just the right amount of pleasant chat and giving you your own space. The rooms are lovely - the shower was hot (something I am really fussy about). Breakfast was cooked to perfected. I am not much of a 'gusher'...

Absolutely lovely place to stay. We stayed here for a few nights in the Peony room. Nothing was too much trouble. The lemon cake was lovely, rooms clean and the decor is very beautiful and fitting for such a splendid house. Harvey Dog was so cute. About a 15 minute walk to town and 2 minutes in a taxi to...

One of the best B& B's we have ever stayed in! From the moment we arrived we were made feel so welcome- Matthew brought us up a cup of freshly made tea and home made cake and then upon departure he defrosted and cleaned the windscreen of our car. Our Holly Berry room excellent. As for the breakfast cooked by...

Where do we start, the Bloomsbury was faultless from start to finish. Host Paul, matt and Harvey were there to greet us when we arrived. We booked the freesia room which is beautiful and i would have been more than happy to stay here but the magnolia room became available so they upgraded us to this room which was amazing...

Stayed here over the weekend. Lovely tasteful b&b, a home from home. Hosts very welcoming, engaged with guests and nothing seemed too much trouble. Lovely building and decor, lots of facilities. About a 15 minute walk from York centre. Shops and cash machine close to b&b. Lots to do in York all accessible and plenty of literature to help you...

Comfortable, quiet, well-located, wonderful breakfasts. And above all, the warmest of welcomes and incredibly well-informed hosts. We'll definitely go again - and as often as possible. What a great prospect.
