This B&B ticked all the boxes for us. Comfortable room, great breakfasts, friendly and helpful staff. We were able to leave our car in their car park for the duration of our visit (four days) and easily walk into the beautiful city of York where there was so much to see and do.

I arrived on the Thursday and was given a fantastic room n the ground floor right nearby the breakfast room! I was staying with my fiance, our 16 month old daughter & my Mum who had a room separated by some double doors.... More

Room was not what we expected,felt let... More

The hotel is located within walking distance of the town and railway station, it is also on a main bus route with a bus stop less than 100 yards from the hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff are very friendly. Breakfast is ample and comprises of a... More

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
