I booked this initially due to the close proximity to the train station (5 min walk) and what a stoke of luck! A labyrinth of corridors with kitchens, lounges and guest rooms. Stayed in a twin which was clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. The hidden chapel is well worth a look and there are beautiful gardens to sit out in.... More

I was attending a conference being held at the Bar Convent and decided to stay over night. A lovely peaceful place, comfortable room and good quality breakfast. Easy walking distance to the city centre. There is a sitting room for guests that I understand has facilities for beverages and perhaps heating food but I didn't go in there.

I stayed here for a few days in York, and it was perfect. 10 minutes walk from the railway station and just outside the walls (maybe a bit further from York's touristy area, 15-25 mins), this place is wonderful. The inside is like a maze, and the rooms were great, had everything we needed (or wanted, including tea/coffee/biscuits/shampoo), and the... More

Lovely lady checked us in and showed us to our room which was fantastic very spacious and modern. Only problem was no mirror above the dressing and noisy very late at... More

Pros: Beautiful historical building, warm and attentive staff, informative booklets/ pamphlets on the history/ facilities of the guesthouse, simple and classic decor, comfy beds, located very near to the train station (within 10 minutes' walk). Cons: TV was not working, location abit out-of-the-way for the main tourist attractions/ restaurants/ shops (more than 20 minutes' walk), the layout of the whole... More

Not knowing what to expect, I booked it due to its close proximity to the railway station. What a find it was!! Charming! Absolutely lovely! Great breakfast! And the staff (including some of the nuns) were simply great! Can't rave more about the place!! It is a real Convent, in case you wonder! The atrium where we had breakfast was... More

Considering the busy road outside this place, my room was very quiet. Lovely bathroom, comfy bed, excellent breakfast, peaceful garden. Lots of thing to like - location, tea tray, facilities. All the staff were very helpful and no problem in checking in early. Thank you for a lovely stay.

In York for the Mystery Plays (brilliant, by the way!), so staying in a convent seemed strangely appropriate. We opted for a superior en-suite double which, at £110 per night, is not cheap for a guest house (the brochure price is £100 per night, Sunday to Thursday, so we may have been overcharged in error). Although the Superior en-suite rooms... More

I stayed a few nights here in October 2015 (sorry for the late review). The place is in a great location, and the accommodations exceeded my expectations. My room was clean and recently renovated. The bathroom was much larger and nicer than I'd expected to find in a B&B in an old building. There was a large well-equipped kitchen on... More

This is a delightful B & B. Immaculate rooms of varying sizes. Steeped in local history. Great breakfasts and friendly service. Centrally located and a short walk from the train station. What's not to like?
