This place was amazing value compared to other accommodation in York. My single room with a shared bathroom did not cost much more than a hostel bunk but I had a private room and a amazing cooked breakfast. Best breakfast I had in the UK. The B&B was very handy to the train station and staff very helpful - especially... More

My friend and I had a twin room with ensuite shower room plus GARGANTUAN breakfast for £44 each. And the room had air con. It's not luxurious...it is a convent after all but clean and comfortable. The staff were incredibly helpful...you can leave your bags there before check in. It's ten minutes walk from the middle of York and 5... More

I booked a twin room. Really clean and comfortable. The staff are welcoming and really helpful to me and my aunt - they were fine about us dropping off our bags before we checked in in the afternoon. The room where you have breakfast is light and very pleasant with a lovely little garden out the back for when it's... More

We stayed here for two nights. The room was nice and bed comfortable but the room faced onto a very noisy road so on Saturday night we had very little sleep. We had a warm welcome and were shown all the facilities.It is about 15 minutes walk from The Minster.

Lovely welcoming Staff ... Absolutely a real gem to stay there right by the entrance of Mickelgate. The Nuns still live on another section of the Building and there is a most Beautiful Chapel where we saw a Bride get married there. Beautiful gardens which takes you by suprise to see this. You can have your coffee or wine there... More

Well, what a great B&B! It is part convent, part heritage centre (with its own museum, hidden chapel, priests hole and the preserved hand of St Margaret Clitherow!). Don't expect prayers at meals it's not that sort of place. Comfortable, spotlessly clean, great food (breakfast, lunch & afternoon tea) which can be taken in the lovely garden as well as... More
