“Lovely B&B, great value, great location”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

It can be hard to find a decently priced room for our family of 5 -- this B&B is a real gem. The room was lovely, the location was terrific (just a couple of blocks from the city walls, w/ free parking), and the staff was friendly and helpful. We would have been happy to spend more than just 2 nights here!

My husband and I recently stayed at Palm Court for the weekend. We had a lovely stay with welcoming and helpful hosts, delicious breakfast and easy access to the city centre! Would recommend to friends and stay again.

Just had a 2 night stay here and have to say the owners were very welcoming and provide a super breakfast. We stayed on the top floor which was a bit of a hike for my mum with 51 stairs/steps from the pavement so be warned if you have older relatives. The rooms were spacious and very very clean although the double bed did creak an awful lot. The shower was very poor but I suppose that's due to staying on the top floor. I would definitely stay there again but maybe ask to stay on first floor. The owners were most helpful and sorted out taxis and our luggage. Great find.

This is our second visit to York and to the Palm Court , we stayed here for a full week, the welcome on arrival was second to none. Have already recommended hotel to friends who have been and again they were very impressed. We had a room over looking the main road, at night this road was v Once you have found your way round the city all attractions are within easy reach. With being within walking distance of the city you can park your car up in the hotel car park, ours stayed there for a week (never moved). The breakfast cannot be faulted and a good variation.

Room Tip: Our room was overlooking a main road, but at night was very quiet, I am a very light sleeper and we...

This family run B & B is a real find. The service was brilliant and the room was clean, tidy and well organised. The only improvement on the room would be to have slightly larger TVs (three of us had to huddle around a 19" TV). Otherwise, excellent. I would recommend to others.

My husband and I stayed here on 11th and 12th May 2012. The hotel, near Monkgate, is a good base from which to enjoy the City of York on foot , as parking at the rear of the hotel is a definite bonus. We had a nice room overlooking the garden and were very well looked after by Nigel, Helen and Nigel's mum! The breakfast menu catered for everyone, and I particularly enjoyed the fresh fruit, as well as the freshly cooked food. Tourist information is supplied and all the major attractions are within easy walking distance. We would readily return to this hotel and are happy to recommend it to others.

We spent 2 nights at the Palm Court, and would agree with everything previous excellent reviews have said. We particularly appreciated being able to leave the car there until we left the city at 3PM. We'll be there for our next York visit.
