At first glance, it doesn't really look like much, but once inside, we were greeted with a very friendly welcome. The room was spotless, with plenty of room. It's in a quiet neighbourhood about a 10-15 minute walk from the walls/town of York and it's a very direct route. It's only about a 6-7 pound cab ride from the train... More

After much travel, we were weary of "charming" which seems to be the description for "a bit shoddy really". Bootham really is charming and our room #2 was sparkling freshly appointed and spotlessly clean. Check in was excellent. Close to everything and we would definitely stay again!

Second time we have stayed here, Andrew and his staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. Free parking, rooms very clean and comfortable, breakfast is excellent. Would highly recommend this B&B . The position of this guest house is very convenient for access to the City Centre and further afield North Yorkshire Moors

We spent 3 days in York in this B&B and it was very good. Room clean and comfortable, nice staff and excellent breakfast included. The position is very convenient to visit the city centre because it's just 15 minutes walking distance. Definetely recommended!

Stayed for 2 nights and 3 days, room as expected, breakfast same, waitresses attentive. Could do with couple of chairs in room to sit on as bed very uncomfortable. Ideal as free parking, probably 10 - 15 minutes walk into York.

Bootham Guest House is located on a quiet street with several other B&Bs. It's a convenient 15 minute walk to the center of the old town in York. Andrew runs his B&B with meticulous attention to detail and has thought of everything a guest could need. Parking is available on the street at no extra charge. We were extremely happy... More

Stayed here on Saturday 4th June, never really expect much from guest houses but as soon as we walked through the door we were made to feel very welcome. The owner showed us to our room and as soon as myself and my husband saw it we were amazed. The room was absolutely immaculate, not a thing out of place... More

We stayed last weekend for two nights. Would definitely recommend. The proprietors were very friendly and helpful, interested in the guests and had lots of good tips for visitors to York. Spotlessly clean. Short walk to City Centre.
