York House
Ranked #69 of 194 York B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 21, 2011

My husband and I stayed at the York House for one night after a train journey. Without a car we wanted a place within walking distance to town or on a bus line, and the York House fit the bill nicely. The other motivation for reserving a room at York House were the pictures of the breakfast area and patio that I saw on the website. Since it was late spring, we wanted to take advantage of the lovely bright weather in a garden setting. Well, the pictures didn't lie. The breakfast room was sunny and airy; a great spot to enjoy our cooked-to-order breakfast. But the aspect of the stay that I have not stopped relating to all is the hospitality of the host. Not only did Dave take the time to tell us about the area, but when it was time for us to go, he drove us to pick up a car at a local rental agency. He literally went that extra mile.

Friendly owners who were happy to please us and make the most out of our stay. Breakfast was lovely. Room was clean and location was good for access to York. Bus stop right outside the front door. Parking was tight but owner was happy to park guest's vehicles. Would stay there again.

Very courteous and friendly welcome. We were shown to the room and given instructions on the windows, shower etc. We were given a tourist brochure of York, with their address and phone number written over the Map. The whole premises were very clean and tidy. It was within walking distance of York center. The breakfast was cooked to order and was plentiful.

Handy Location to down town, requiring a walk of 10-15 minutes. David and his wife were very friendly and helpful. Excellent room with newer double pane windows, comfortable bed, good lighting and quiet. The en-suite toilet worked better than what we were used to at other B and B's during our one month travel in the UK. Excellent breakfast. We thought the price compared very favorably with other B and B's, especially considering the quality of York House.

I would highly recommend this accom. The host was friendly, obliging and helpful with a great sense of humour. He went out of his way to make sure one of our party, who was recovering from a broken ankle, had a ground floor room. The rooms were huge and extremely comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. A short walk to the main attractions in York and advice and directions given cheerfully. A very enjoyable stay

This was the best b&b we have stayed in the atmosphere was relaxed breakfast was good and plenty of choice the owners Kath and Dave made us feel at home and let us use the the facilities in the kithen to warm up our take away supper. the location was only a short walk away from York and Kath and Dave gave us advice on the places we could visit. The rooms are all on suite & a really good size, if you are planning a trip to York look no further than this b&b ...Liz and both Sheilas
