“Great B & B in York”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

15 of us stayed here over the weekend of 11 October as we were going to York races.
Very warm welcome. Clean and comfortable rooms all with en suites - even had robes in bathroom! Lovely breakfast. Good location - only 15 min walk from the Minster or there is a bus stop right outside which takes you to town centre.
We have been to York on a number of occasions for the races and this is probably the best accommodation we have had. Definatly be back!
Although there was no bar or evening meal there was a pub next door (Shoulder of Mutton) which served tasty meals and had a good local atmosphere for a drink.

Stayed for three nights with my sister for a girlie break. Loveley twin room with good shower en suite on ground floor overlooking the garden. Comfy beds, very clean rooms and good selection of items on the tea tray.
Breakfast excellent (and in lovely surroundings) - worth the short wait for it to be freshly cooked. We were in no hurry to start the day!
Owners are very friendly but professional. No problem to bring takeaway food so long as you eat it in the dining room.
On the main bus route into town and not expensive. Buses every ten minutes until quite late costs £2. Taxi cost us £7 one evening.
Parking might be a bit tight if you have a big car.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: They dont have many twin rooms so book early if you need this.

Good room, nicely decorated, but four poster bed was creaky and not very comfortable. All clean in the room but bathroom floor was a bit grubby. excellent breakfast each morning. No wi Fi during our stay, we were told it was going to be repaired but it didnt happen. Convenient location to the city centre. The owners were away on holiday, but they had several young women manning the hotel. They were all very pleasant but we did not really get chatting to them. All in all we had a great weekend and we would stay at York house again.

Thank you for your honest review, I am sorry you missed us 5 weeks ago and glad you found the staff pleasant.. I am sorry you didn't have wifi, though this did happen over the weekend and the engineers were there on the next working day. This has now been corrected and a new modem and routers installed. It was another little something for the girls to deal with in our absence.

I am sorry you didn't find the bed very comfy as it has a brand new mattress, less than a month old, replaced as earlier guests thought the previous mattress was not comfy! Will take a look at the creaks to see what can be done - we don't know this occurs unless we are informed, so thank you for drawing it to my attention.

You'll be pleased to know that the shower room is being updated in January including new flooring.

I am glad you had a lovely weekend here and would be happy to stay with us again and if so it would be nice to meet you.

My friend and I stayed for two nights during a girlie weekend in September. Our twin room was very comfortable and clean with a decent size en-suite. The room was situated at the back of the building which made for a peaceful night given the accommodation is situated on a busy road. All the staff were very friendly and eager to help. Breakfast was plentiful and certainly set you up for a hard days shopping. The centre of York is a 10-15 minute stroll away which was great when you weren't laden with shopping bags; the return journey is best done by bus! Overall a really nice place to stay; I've already recommended it to friend who I'm sure will enjoy it just as much as we did.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights for our honeymoon, the room itself was big, clean and had a nice en-suite shower room with really big shower, the owners were nice and friendly and there was plenty of choice for breakfast.
We were in walking distance for town centre and there was also a bus every 10 minutes right on the doorstep.
There was plenty of information leaflets at hand and the owners knew the area very well.

Nice, large, clean b&b. Professional, friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. Had to cancel one night's stay and they advised us how to do this I couldn't change it through booking.com. The owner's weren't around when we were there but the b&b is still run to a high standard which shows how professional the staff are. We had a lovely table in the breakfast room overlooking the garden. The breakfasts were plentiful and well made. The bathroom was clean and well-stocked. The bed was comfortable. For a short stay this is a super b&b. A bit pricey, but if you're looking for quality within a short walk from the centre of town, this is the one for you.

Thank you for your generous review, I am pleased you were happy with the service, accommodation and food provided by York House staff whilst we were away on holiday. I shall pass on your comments on their professionalism, we are all appreciative of positive comments.

I am sorry you thought we were expensive, however, our prices are very much within the same range, if not the cheapest, for similarly graded accommodation that also offer the same facilities and within the same proximity to the city centre. Of course potential guests can take advantage of booking discount offers which makes the cost of the accommodation very reasonable indeed.

Probably the best B&B we have ever used. Friendly, helpful staff, clean and comfortable room with the biggest shower I have ever seen in a B&B plus an outstanding and very tasty selection at breakfast. The only down-side is that parking is a little tight, but once you have squeezed your car in you don't need it if you are exploring York because it is only a 10 minute walk to the Minster - even for oldies like us

Room Tip: Room 4 has the enormous shower.

Thank you so much for your generous and glowing review. I am so happy you enjoyed your stay at York House and appreciated the large shower, comfortable room , breakfasts and housekeeping. Yes the car park is only able to take about 5/6 cars but we do offer alternative free parking within a minute's walk of the guest house.
