We stayed here on a recent visit to York. Its a city we are familiar with so we were pleased to find somewhere so conveniently situated for touring the city center. It is really close to the station, which is just across the river, accessed by a footbridge. We were given first rate directions by our hosts in an email, so found our way easily. (They even have their customer parking spaces adjacent to the building, so all bases are covered)
The hosts, Alec and Gill were most welcoming and treated us to tea and home made tray bakes when we arrived. Gill was very helpful, recommending places to eat and offering money saving vouchers too.
The room was en suite, cosy and spotless, with tea making facilities and a sitting area to relax in. The bed was comfy and a good size too.
There was a good variety for breakfast on offer, with the option of a few "Specials" available too. I chose the Eggs Benedict.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment, and will definitely return on my next visit to York.
