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.

Bowman's is about 10 minutes walk from York railway station and about 8 minutes walk from York city centre. York is full of interesting places to visit including... More

Enjoyed our stay, welcoming, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was huge and freshly prepared. Room was well appointed, and there was plenty of hot water. Parking on street, but readily available, easy walk into town. I have to write 200 character as a minimum - well done trip advisor!

We stayed for 2 nights in the ground floor room (10/11 June), freshly decorated and the room and ensuite were spotless. This room was very convenient and saved walking upstairs. Parking is just outside the B&B and was free. The Landlady is lovely-very helpful and caring. Breakfast each morning was great in a lovely large dining room at the front... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Bowmans. Lovely, friendly and welcoming hosts. Just got back from a two night stay. We stayed in the blue room at the front of the hotel, it was spotless. The bed was very comfortable and had a great nights sleep. The breakfast was very tasty, lovely bacon and my favourite bit were the mushrooms.... More
