Just returned from a lovely few days in York and feel so lucky to have chosen the Bloomsbury. Our hosts were wonderful, friendly and generally interested in your day and gave great recommendations on walking routes and restaurants in the area. The full English breakfast was really good, great ingredients very well cooked. Room very nice and maintained very well....

Matt and Paul couldn't have made us feel more welcome. We had a wonderful stay, it's a beautiful bnb and you just can't fault a thing. It was made extra special by the delicious slice of lemon drizzle and pot of tea we had after a long trip from London on the Friday. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in York!

This is my third stay at The Bloomsbury and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in York. Only a 10 minute walk from The York Minster and always a lovely warm welcome from Matt, Paul & Harvey. The rooms are cosy, clean and tastefully decorated and there's always a sweet treat to welcome you in the hallway! Breakfast is also...

We stayed two nights at The Bloomsbury in the middle of December and we're so glad we did! We found the place easily and were greeted by both Mathew and Paul and taken to our room on the second floor (room 8). A lovely room overlooking the church opposite with a nice en-suite with large shower. The room was lovely...

We visited The Bloomsbury on December 2nd for two nights. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Matthew and he took the time and trouble to explain the various attractions in York. Our room was very comfortable and they even left us a box of chocolates on our second night! Lovely touch. The breakfasts cooked by Paul were delicious...

Me and my wife stopped here for two nights in December 2016 so we could visit all the great places in york. I have to say I thought it was excellent. Excellent hosts, excellent room and definitely excellent breakfast. The b&b itself was only fifteenth minute walk from york city centre which meant you were close enough to all the...

From our arrival to sadly leaving this B&B it was the little extras that really impressed.

What a fantastic review to wake up to on a miserable Winters day! It was truly a pleasure having you both stay with us last week and we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay.

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...
