Have stayed at the Carousel before. Very welcoming and parked off road. Lovely breakfast and very comfortable beds. Friendly hosts. Towels and shower gel provided. Great value for the money. Will stay again. :)

Both of the gentlemen were extremely polite and helpful. Plenty of parking was available and the guest house was only about 10mins walk from the city . A pot of tea was made for us on arrival and because my daughter doesn`t like full english breakfast they were quite happy to provide extra bacon instead.
The only detrimental comment I would make was that certain areas of the bedroom/ensuite could have done with a bit of redecoration but to be quite honest for the money we paid we were not at all disappointed and would certainly visit again.

Just returned from another stay at the Carousel. Had a two night break. Greeted by the owner who is very friendly. Carried bags to room for us and brought a pot of tea to room for us ... which was very welcomed. We stayed in Room 5 which is a large room and got everything you need. You can come and go as you please. Owners always happy to answer any questions and point you in right direction to where you want to be. Only 15 min walk max to city. Very quiet location. Breakfast is plenty .... 1 bacon, 2 sausage, fried egg, hash brown, beans and as much toast as you want. Also help yourself to fresh orange and cereal. Highly recommend this place. We will definitely be back

Stayed at this guest house for a couple of nights at the end of November. We arrived in the evening and received a very friendly welcome and a pot of tea brought to our room!
Although very dated our room was clean, warm and comfortable, very good for the extremely cheap price of £25 night. This place is only about a 10 minute walk from Yorkminster and the shopping area. The only down side of this guest house was that the rest of the house was extremely cold. We went down for breakfast in the morning, the radiators weren't on and the dining room was freezing, so much so that you could see your breath!! The only thing I would suggest that if anyone is thinking of going there in the winter months, wear a thick jumper (or 2) down for breakfast. All in all, a very good, cheap place to stay.

Stayed for two nights during the Illuminating York week/weekend. Our room was for the price, very much worth the money and although the view from our window was not the best, as it is situated amongst terraced houses, we were very happy with the it.
There is just enough space to park three cars off road, but there is plenty of on road parking just outside. It is only a ten minute walk from the Minster and old city walls at a strolling pace with shops and cafes in between. The hosts are extremely hospitable and eager to please without being over bearing, the building and rooms are maintained to the best of the hosts abilities although dated in places they are kept clean and tidy, which for the price we weren't too sure what to expect. We had a comfortable nights sleep as the rooms were nice and warm, with no noise from the street outside either. The only thing that could possibly improve the Carousel is the dining room and vegetarian breakfast, the non veggie breakfast is good with as much toast and tea and coffee as you want, but the inclusion of veggie sausages and mushrooms would be nice for the vegetarians amongst us and perhaps placing the dining tables and chairs better, not around the outside edge of the room would make it more welcoming in the mornings and maybe some background music to break the quietness. All in all, we would recommend the Carousel Guest House and would defiantly stay there again.

My Husband and I have just returned from a stay at the Carousel and booked this as a last minute trip having read the previous reviews. I would totally agree with what has been said before. We were met with a very warm welcome by our host and our luggage carried up to our room. We were also offered a pot of tea whilst we unpacked. Whilst the B&B and rooms are a little tired in decor it was clean and the bed was one of the comfiest we have slept in with crisp white cotton sheets and fresh clean towels every day. We had off road parking which was a great advantage and being a little way out of the city centre (15-20 min walk) it is very quiet so good nights sleep guaranteed. We received another very friendly greeting at Breakfast which was freshly cooked to order. All in all the two gentlemen hosts work very hard to make sure you enjoy your stay and was good value for money.
