“Great pace in York”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

We recently spent 2 nights here. We arrived earlier than expected and it was fine to leave our bags and come back later, Michael was a wonderful host. He gave us lots of good information and suggested a few places to eat. The breakfasts were very good. Our room was spotless, and the bed comfortable. The location is about a 10 minute walk to the old city gates.
Can recommend and would stay here again.

Coming from Australia and neither of us ever having been to York, we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay! It is located opposite a park and bowling greens about a ten minute walk from the old city and parking is available which makes access to the city trouble-free and raises the availability of restaurants to a staggering degree of choice

As well as the convenience, the Burton Villa is a clean, comfortable and pleasant place to stay. Breakfast is wonderful and our hosts were friendly and very helpful. It couldn't have been better!

Room Tip: Probably a bit quieter at the back of the house, but the traffic at the front didn't keep us awa...

The Jameson's who run the Burton Villa we're wonderful. Their B&B is very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was great and varied. We stayed 10 days with them and wished we could stay longer. We could walk to the old city although they had parking on the street. They gave s a parking permit so parking is no problem. Don't need a car. York is amazing and one of the most interesting cities in England. We love history and it is there! History. About the Romans, Vikings, and the Normans in this small walled city. What a great place to explore! The Jameson's were so helpful and fun it was hard to say goodbye!

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor in front. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. Black out curt...

We found the owners were very friendly and helpful, recommendation of Indian restaurant over the road did not disappoint. The room was fairly small but fine for us although it is on a fairly busy road so if you're not used to road noise, ask for a room at the back. Good tea/ coffee facilities, comfy bed and nice to have a dvd player and various dvds to watch. Breakfast was lovely and good variety. Only 10mins walk into centre which was great.

Room Tip: If light sleeper ask for back room

We chose Burton Villa as we wanted a family room within walking distance of York. We were warmly welcomed with a cup of tea on arrival, very nice touch. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day. It took us under 10 minutes to walk into the City and we appreciated being able to come and go throughout our stay. Would certainly visit again and will recommend most highly to all!

Room Tip: On quite a busy road so you may prefer a room towards the back of the house, although not a problem...

We visited York for a weekend and the guest house is ideally situated for visiting all the local sights. The proprietor is an excellent host and promoter of his city. He was very helpful and knowledgeable about all of York's delights

We came to check.in and had a warm welcome from the male owner, who kindly showed us our room and left us to it.
The room was very clean and spacious very close to the centre which was a bonus., although the slight set back is that the front room we had, we could here the traffic through the night and didnt sleep much but excellent breakfast and would recommend this place to anyone
