I found this B&B recommended by a person in the Uni of York that it was really close from there, and not too far from the city centre too. I had a really good impression of this place. The staffs were friendly. The place was clean and nice. It has an authentic old-English design (I guess, I am not sure... More

This was recommended by a friend. It's a traditional place but it was immaculate and a really good price. Near to the town centre we jumped a cab which only cost us £4.. Friendly staff,nice brekkie what more can you ask for? We will go back next time we visit York x

Stayed here for 2 nights May 13th / 14th We were in the top room, the shower was in the room but not a problem. The toilet on the landing for our use only, again not a problem. Good breakfast, with a choice of doubling up. Parking was round the back on the street, but it seems a fairly quiet... More

The B&B itself is just average, somewhat older and tired. Minuses: The mattress was well-used and lumpy. Breakfast was fine, but nothing special and had to ask to have the cereal containers refilled. The proprietress was off-putting. What I couldn't tell from the pictures is that room 11's shower is right in the room, so if you're sharing you have... More

Thank you for your comments. The property is at present been updated but unfortunately does not happen over night, However as I have mentioned before I do not want to take away the Victorian aspect of the property so some rooms do have a Sanderson feel to them. I think mattresses must be a personal choice as the comments vary... More

I stayed in the guest room at the back of the hotel with a separate toilet which I preferred. The bed was so comfy and room was quiet overlooking cathedral.
