“Beautiful house, fantastic hosts”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I stayed 3 nights here while I was on a course in the city. The hosts were very welcoming & attentive & left no detail to chance. I was upgraded to the double from twin room as it had a desk so I could study (at their suggestion rather than my asking!) & it was perfect. Comfortable bed, clean and airy. The house it very charming and suited my needs perfectly. Breakfast was made to order and they even made it an hour early to allow for my early starts! I would definitely recommend staying here if you appreciate somewhere with character rather than a faceless hotel chain. Next time I visit I will look forward to staying here again.

Stayed for one night in a twin room. Room clean, bed linen fresh. No ensuite but toilet just outside room (was aware of this prior to booking). Breakfast was excellent, choice of cereals, a lovely fruit salad and a full English. Cannot praise hosts enough, very friendly and helpful. Location good, less than 10 minute walk into centre of York. Car parking space was a bonus!

Really don't want to put any negatives because the positives outweighed any little niggles but.. TV would be better placed in bedroom rather than dressing area (but for our 1 night stay not a problem!) and perhaps the decor needs updating in areas but guessing that it'll be tackled over time.

All in all excellent value.

We had such a lovely time, the owners couldn't have been more helpful and very accommodating. We had a day at the races and they organised our transport, the weather was horrible and they lent me an umbrella. The breakfast was scrummy, a full English both days. We had the top floor, the beds were very comfortable. When we go back to York we would go back, thank you.

Great room, friendly owners & great location. The guest house was great value for money. Breakfast was very filling with choice of cereals and a cooked breakfast. Arrived by car with a car parking space waiting for me.

After booking a 4 day trip to York with my partner we arrived to a Amor Matris. Beautiful looking building. The landlady and her husband were very smiley and very welcoming!
At first the old style wooden floors and lack of technology(apart from WI-FI which is provided for free!) was a bit of a change to what we expected, But that was shortlived by how quiet, warm and fitting this place actually is for the York experience!
Yes we could have stayed at premier inn but why go to a expensive resturant and cover your food in ketchup...?
It was perfect, and because i asked my partner to marry me at the Minster we came back where we recieved glasses of wine and such a celebratory reception it made it perfect! as we are from coventry our family and friends wasnt there to give us that which was nice to feel like people were there to share it with us. Also the room we stayed in faced the Minster which was nice to wake up and see it everyday.
All in all it made our York trip perfect and we will be booking again here next time we come!

Stayed for two nights. Simple and adequate for our needs. We had a twin room with the bathroom just outside the room. The owners are a lovely couple and extremely helpful. They had vouchers for the Minster and Castle Museum so that saved us some money. Also we were allowed to leave our lugage at the B & B on the day of departure as we were not due to catch the train until later in the day. This allowed us another day in York which was just a short walk from the B & B. The owner (Chris) gave us a lift to the station. Lovely ample breakfast to start us off for the day. Would stay again.

This is a beautiful building and although it does need some tlc. The owner and his wife could not have been more helpful and friendly. It is more guest house than hotel and stuck a little in a time warp but it did add to the eccentric charm! The bed and bathroom was clean and the breakfast in the morning was really good. The owner couldnt do enough for you and his wife and daughter were very helpful. Don't stay here expecting a modern hotel think more 1960's boarding house but I would stay again .
