Ideal location for the city and railway station. The rooms are always clean with comfy beds and "free wi-fi and parking permits". The breakfast is very good quality items cooked by Dave. Debra makes you feel very welcome nothing is too much trouble for her. Well worth giving bowmans a visit.

My wife and I immensely enjoyed our three nights at Bowman's. While the accommodations were charming and the Blue Room was quiet and extremely comfortable, what sets Bowman's apart is.....well, the Bowmans. Debra is a non-stop charmer whose only goal is to ensure your stay exceeds your expectations. David does the "heavy lifting" - getting your luggage to its rightful... More

Lovely Bed and Breakfast. Great Location and only a short walk to the centre of York. Debra was helpful, knowledgeable and very friendly. The breakfast was superb and very tasty. My room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely return.
