York House
Ranked #68 of 194 York B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 29, 2012

After travelling through Ireland and the UK for 6 weeks York House is so fresh in our memories as being the best B&B experience we had. From the minute we walked in and were greeted by Kathy and Dave we all felt so welcome and relaxed and the feeling continued until we left 4 days later. The service we received was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Everything was perfect. Spotless, really comy beds, great shower, yummy b/fast and perfect location with a bus outside the front door to get you into the city in a few minutes and not to mention the great pub next door. We loved our experience in York and most of it was due to the awesome stay we had at York House. Thank you.

One of the best B&B we have had in the UK after 2 weeks. the shower alone got 5 stars. 10 minute walk into town. If in York make sure you walk around the top of the city walls

Stayed for a long weeked and was a very pleasant stay. Great breakfast in conservatory and very clean and welcoming room. Big comfy bed with nice pillows- I want to know where she buys them!the room was decorated very nicely too.
We have family in the area, but the reason we stayed in a b&b was because my partner has an allergy to cats. And my family has three. Unfortunately on arrival found out that there is several resident cats that have free run of the house. Lady recommended us to shut the bedroom window as they might come in of their own accord! Room was uber clean and my partner was fine in there. There were cat hairs on the breakfast table which wasn't great(black runners on table showed it up- bad choice of colour!), and a wet sticky fur ball on my partners seat. Only wee pinickity things but we were there to avoid cats- should say on the website really as others we had looked at did. If you can overlook this then the place is a fantastic wee b&b within easy reach of York- 10min stroll to the walls or a bus directly outside the front door. I would stay again.

Myself, husband and teenage son have just returned from a very enjoyable, relaxing 7 night stay in York House. We stayed in a lovely double room facing the back of the house, it was large, very quiet, comfortable and clean. The bathroom has a large shower, very large soft towels are provided and also a lovely soft dressing gown. My son stayed in the single room, which although small was very well equipped with everything he needed including free Wi-Fi, a must when you're a teenager! The owners and all the staff are so friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are delicious with a great selection, cooked breakfasts are made to order. York House is ideally situated within easy walking distance of York City Centre, there's a bus stop right outside. On one of our nights stay there was unacceptable noise from another room, in the middle of the night, this was was dealt with as soon as we mentioned it, in a very professional way. We were told noise is not acceptable day or night and had we rung the bell at reception during the night it would have been dealt with immediately (we waited until the next day). I would highly recommend a stay here, the room rates are excellent, have paid much more in the past and not received the service we got here. We won't hesitate to book York House, next time we visit York.

I stayed here for three nights. It's a short walk from the old town. The very clean, well equipped single room was fine for one person. It had a good sized bathroom attached to it. The doubles looked great for two people . The full English breakfast was large and tasty and it held me until suppertime. The service was excellent. The owners were very friendly, helpful and concerned about their guest's stay. I've stayed in many hotels, guest houses and B&Bs and would highly recommend York House.

My mum and I stayed here recently for her birthday. We were really pleased with our find it is a real gem in the middle of York. It also had parking which is a added bonus. We were greeted with smiles and welcomed in. Our room was lovely clean and spacious. We were given lots of information to help with our stay.
We came for the Olympic torch celebration and had a fab time. When we got back that night we were tired and our feet were about to drop off. The landlady gave us each a bowl filled with hot water and oils to soothe our aching feet followed by foot cream. Now that is above and beyond the service of a hotel!!
We also had take away pizza which a table was set up for us to sit at. Thank you for letting us use your beautiful champagne glasses.
Breakfast was lovely with a great variety. Nothing was too much trouble for the couple who owned it and would recommend to anyone. We will be returning shortly and thank you so much for making our stay extra special.
