Fantastic that this hotel takes bartercard. We had a family room which was beautifully presented, spacious, clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding. The hotel has a relaxed, warm and friendly feel to it. The staff were extremely helpful giving great tips on where to visit, where to eat and making my children feel very welcome. The children had...

The staff is very helpful, it seems to be a family business so everybody works with enthusiasm. The room was very comfortable, clean and with amenities that I'd not expect for a guest house. It's very close to the city center, in 10 minutes you are at the heart of York. Didn't try the breakfast.

We stayed here for 2 nights in May. On checking in we found the lady on Reception very helpful, She gave us a lot of information. For the price we paid for a 2 night stay we would only rate the accommodation as reasonable. The room we stayed in was nothing special and had 2 single beds located at opposite... More

Travelling with my young daughter, York is a demanding, busy and over-priced city, but worth the investment. This guest house was an excellent reasonably priced location. The staff were as friendly and helpful as you want them to be. Breakfast was very good - only complaint was the radio being on during the breakfast. The walk to the city was... More

Once in reception, the first impressions are excellent, with Deborah giving a great welcome and very helpful tips for first-time visitors to York. Very straightforward room arrangements and we had a convenient sofa in our room too. Bathroom slightly cramped, but otherwise the room was fine. Car park was also very cramped and may be an occasional issue at busier... More

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Bishops's Guest Accomodation, where we stayed for two nights. On arrival we were greeted by a member of staff who shared her knowledge of the area with us and advised us of good dining places and areas of interest. Our room was on the ground floor, at first we were concerned that the... More

Had another nice stay at Bishop's. Paid a little extra for the Superior room this time which was nice and quiet as it overlooked the garden at the back. Very spacious and nicely decorated. Tasty breakfast. Only negative to speak of was the poor pressure in the shower.

Thank you for your review, it is a lovely sunfilled quiet room overlooking the garden, I apologise if your shower pressure was down we will get it checked. You will need to try a four poster bedroom on a future visit, you could maybe work your way through them all and let us know your favourite! More
