“Superb”
Reviewed April 19, 2011

We enjoyed a 2 night stay in this superb B&B. The propietors were really welcoming and were really helpful in suggesting places to eat. The family room we stayed in was clean and comfortable with more than adequate space for my wife and I and our 5 year old daughter. There was a fantastic selection of drinks in the room and the breakfast was wonderful with lots of different choices.
The location of the B&B was perfect for our needs, situated in a quiet cul-de-sac and only a nice 10 minute walk or cheap taxi ride to the centre of York. We would definatley stay here again.

We booked at short notice and enjoyed a 3 nights for the price of 2 deal. Although the bed was a little soft the room was well equipped. We had shared facilities but there was a sink in the room and we didn't have any problems getting access to one of the two bathrooms when we needed it.
The breakfast has been mentioned by most travellers and we have to agree that it was lovely - and no batting of eyebrows when we asked for bacon with our pancakes, banana and maple syrup. Lovely kippers, plenty of food and endless coffee or tea.
It's about 15 minutes walk to get into the centre of York so we didn't need a car. We also enjoyed the range of shops in the city - lots of bargains!

My self and my partner stayed in in August during the Ebor race meeting, and although we arrived early it was not a problem to leave our luggage in the guest house while we went off to the races.The room was of good size and very clean through out, We were made to feel very welcome at breakfast the next morning which was excellent with loads of choice what to eat.
The location is about 15 mins walk to the centre of york and about 20-25 mins walk to the races.
