“Excellent in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Mowbray House is everything a B&B should be, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, excellent breakfast and friendly owners, it is less than a ten minute walk into the centre of York so it ticks every box, would not hesitate in recommending Mowbray House to family and friends and look forward to staying with Carol and Phil in the future

My husband booked a surprise night away in York booking this on Late Rooms.com.
What a lovely couple, very warm and inviting place to stay. Very much home from home, wonderful breakfast cooked to your own liking, nothing is too much trouble, just ask.
Would any next visit staying at the same place, with Carol & Phil, making our stay Brill.
Thanks every so much. looking forward to next time.

Room Tip: 10 mins walk for City centre, just far enough away from the town

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was beyond what we had anticipated, I had trawled the internet to find a suitable place to stay and so glad we booked the Mowbray house , our room was immaculately clean and a good size, the breakfast really does set you up for the day, all nicely cooked and presented and plenty of it , nothing is too much trouble Carol is very warm and helpful , we visit York at least once a year for a few days and will not be booking anywhere else but here,
All in all a lovely well keep property well priced and great hosts, I know its a bit of a cliché but we felt like we arrived as strangers but left as friends ,
See you next year MRS CAROL :-) love to olly

We have chosen this B&B mainly for his location, close to the historical centre of York: it is at maximum 10min walk from the ancient walls and gate. Sufficiently quiet road, very few traffic noise, three car parkings available in the side way
We arived late in the evening, about 10pm, but Mrs Carol had no problem in waiting for us (we had advised her).
There were 5 of us and stayed for 3 nights: she offered a double room plus another double with added bed, but for the following night she moved the 3 of us to the main treble room on the front of the house.
The rooms are quite wide, furnished with a lovely taste that shows the attention of the owner to every minimum detail. The beds are very confortable, they were all en-suite, very clean (even if we don't "approve" use of carpets in the bathrooms, but this is standard british practice), provided with towels for everyone and full facilities for having a tea or a coffee in the room. TV LCD is also available in all rooms. Unfortunately the climb upstairs to the first floor with heavy luggages is not facilitated byt the steep and narrow stairs... but we managed to do with a bit more effort.
Breakfast, what to say about it? Excellent is not enough, plenty of choice freshly prepaered at customer preference, both Continental and full English are available: Mrs Carol was always kind and available even with the multiple requests from our children for tasting something different every day.
Con: only accepts cash payment.
Highly recommend this place for short and long staying in York, we will save this facility for future comings.

this is a super little b&b - just a short walk into the city centre and an affordable taxi ride to the races.
Our room was huge and spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom. Breakfast was great and wasn't swimming in horrible grease.
The owners were really friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
No complaints!

Great location, literally a 10 minute walk to the minster. Top marks for cleanliness, friendliness and cooked breakfast. Carol and Phil very friendly hosts. Comfortable room, and next time I'm in York will be my first booking choice, but like my title says sssssssshhhhhhh don't tell everyone how good it is or you might have trouble getting booked in!
