“Still our favourite”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

This is a lovely small guest house. I thoroughly recommend it. A very nice welcome, a good location, comfortable, clean rooms, a bright breakfast room with great food, fair prices, free allocated street parking - what's not to like?
I have reviewed Southlands previously, and have stayed there often since. It is still as good as ever.

Room Tip: All nice and all rooms are quiet. Room 2 has a useful fridge and is a family room. Room 3 is also a...

It was some weeks ago when i stayed here, but it was so nice i had to write a late review.
I needed some rest, and found Southlands to be a haven of peace and quiet. The hotel was very clean, and smelled lovely and fresh.
Bedroom was nice and large, big kingsize be, and a very nice strong power shower was welcome.
Karen's breakfast's were smashing, and a good start to the day
We have made another booking for later in the year, and wont be staying anywhere else in York in future

A great quiet location with a nice easy stroll through Rowntree Park to the castle area. Warm welcome, great room and breakfast Karen and Steve could not have done more.

My boyfriend and I stayed here this weekend with no complaints.
Charming room, ensuite (separate toilet and shower rooms), and great breakfast (thanks for the vegetarian options!!!)
Karen and Steve were great hosts, offering to let us leave our bags for the day after check-out.
Would recommend.

This is a fantastic B&B . It is located in a really good location and very easy to find . The room was really clean with a very comfortable bed . We can see why it has won awards for its breakfasts.

A lovely guest house with a warm welcome from Karen, the owner. We were welcomed with coffee and biscuits on arrival and shown to our immaculate room. Cleanliness and condition of the room was excellant and lovely and warm all the time! Breakfast was fantastic ith plenty of choice, even fruit as a starter.
We will definately be going back later in the year thank you for a lovely stay!!!!

Absolutely the best guesthouse we have ever stopped in. From the moment we were greeted by name to the time we were waved off the customer service could not be topped. We were genuinely made to feel welcome and offered fresh brewed tea or coffee upon arrival and the hosts did everything they could to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. The room was immaculate and so clean that I even resorted to looking for dust of which I found none. The bed was comfortable and the room tastefully decorated. The breakfast was lovely, we were greeted with a bowl of freshly prepared fruit and yoghurt followed by a delicious full english and top quality bread and preserves, all of which were beautifully presented.
