Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Louise & Mark did everything to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. Our bedroom was spotless with a lovely en-suite. We were greeted with a cup of tea and homemade cake on our arrival. The guest house is in a good location for York and the surrounding area & you can walk into York (around 25 mins) or catch the bus.Louise and Mark are happy to pass on their knowledge of the area & to recommend places to eat. Cold water and fresh milk were provided in a fridge & this was much appreciated. The breakfasts were delicious and we would definitely recommend the Blakeney.

A group of us stayed here as part of an organised bike trip. Louise and Mark did everything they could to help: warm and comfortable rooms, delicious breakfast (fresh fruit salad was very welcome),guided us to pubs for evening meals, sorted out soaking cycling clothes and were generally pleasant. Thank you for everything - I hope to return.

My room was exceptionally clean and well-equipped. A nice touch was the availability of fresh milk which was kept in a refrigerator on the landing (this was in addition to the usual cartons of milk on the tea-tray in the room).
The slot for breakfast was quite limited at 8.30 - 9.0am. The owner warned me of this when I arrived but an earlier breakfast could be arranged if requested.
Unfortunately, it is a good 30 minute walk into town although a 'bus service is available.

Thank you for your complimentry review.

With regard to breakfast our normal breakfast service has always been from 8.30am until 9.15 during the week and 8.30am until 9.30pm on weekends, so not as limited as you suggest. We find this works well for our guest, but we can do earlier breakfast from 7.30am on request, or a buffet tray is provided in the fridge if requested before that time.

We are always happy to take on board Guests constructive comments and since your stay we now do breakfast during the week from 8.15am until 9.15am.

Many Thanks
Louise

We have just had a fabulous 2 night stay at The Blakeney. We are a family of five and were more than comfortable in the family room.
We were welcomed with fresh coffee and home made cake, Mark and Louise could'nt do enough.

And the most important part of going away...The breakfast.. Lovely, everything you could want, all fresh and good quality products.
If you go to York, and don't stay at The Blakeney your missing out!!.

A wonderful warm and friendly welcome on arrival. The hospitality of tea, coffee and delicious homemade cakes.

The rooms were excellent, very comfortable and homely. The breakfast was excellent with a good choice and variety, the service was excellent. The hotel is placed in a very good location. All was a great value for money.

Louise and Mark were perfect hosts, went out of their way to help and could not do enough for us.

We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend.

Room Tip: All rooms were excellent, very quiet.

I booked Blakeney House for afternoon tea for my mother's 90th birthday party. The room was nicely decorated with bunting and tables set out with a marvellous array of cakes and sandwiches, followed by scones with cream and strawberries. The owners made sure we had everything we needed and were most helpful even providing ice cream cornets for the young great-grandchildren.
We also had some of the family staying there and they all said the rooms were lovely.
Thank you Mark and Louise for making our celebration a happy one.
