Typical B&B, reasonably clean. Relatively spacious room for a family of four, but looked like run down a bit: mould on the bathroom ceiling, over used linen some with holes, dusty in some parts of the room. Excellent breakfast that really beats 4 star hotels in quality of cooked food. This is actually what saves the day! This along with... More

Visited Holmwood when we went to York for the races. Stayed 2 nights. The room was nice with en suite. It was nicely situated not too far away from the city centre. We found the breakfast was very nice. However thought the guest house was a bit over priced at £130 a night. But I suppose it was a case... More

Nice place to stay. Within easy walking distance of the railway station, town wall, restaurants, town centre. Very pleasant hostess who was most helpful and gave us some good advice . Would definitely go back. York is a wonderful historical spot to visit.

We stayed in the 4 poster room as it was our honeymoon trip. The bed was comfortable, though the pillows were a bit too soft for my liking. I still slept wonderfully though so it wasn't too much of a problem. Checking in is a bit of an annoyance, since there's not usually someone on reception meaning you needed to... More

Prices seem to vary. I paid £89 per night for one of the refurbished rooms with extra large bed. The room was spacious and light but the bed was very hard and the feather pillows, although plentiful, were very thin and separated easily so you ended up lying on just the case! The bathroom had a full-size walk-in shower, powerful... More

Breakfast very basic and under cooked eggs, Had to plug the kettle in on the floor as the lead didn't reach the socket. Pillows in need of a change soft and lumpy but the bedding seemed... More

We were greeted by the very friendly and helpful owner who seemed genuinely concerned that we make the most of our brief time in York. She gave us recommendations on where to eat, and how to best explore the city. The room was clean and had been especially set up for our family of 4 with one queen, one twin... More
