“Lovely Stay”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

I had a flying visit to York. Asked for a twin room but was actually given a double and a single - lovely size room, clean, lovely breakfast. Had to share bathroom facilities but for £45 a bargain for two people! Lovely people very helpful. Would definitely stay again.

This guesthouse is a nice walk away from the beautiful city centre of York. The hosts, Nigel and Wendy were very welcoming and they made us feel at home. On our arrival, Wendy showed us the room and then gave us directions into town and some useful suggestions and tips. The room was really comfortable and equipped with all that we needed. Breakfast in the morning was also delicious ... All in all, this place is highly recommended!

What a wonderful stay! Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived. Wendy welcomed us and gave us directions into town and told us about the best attractions. Tip - buy york passes before you arrive, you save a bundle on attraction admissions! Lovely comfortable room and very cosy. Equipped with all the essentials, nice hot shower in en suite bathroom, towels, big comfy bed and tv... What more do you need?! Wendy was so accomodating, nothing was too much trouble. Always took the time to ask about our day and even offered to look after our bags whilst we enjoyed our second day in town. Perfect location as well, lovely riverside walk into town which worked off the huge breakfast! Order the full english! My fiancee from america experienced her first one and it knocked her for six! Ideal place to come back to and crash after a long day in the city. Can't wait to come back next year!!

Hosts - Nigel & Wendy Armitage......friendly & welcoming. Clean & comfortable. Close/walking distance to York attractions. Very reasonably priced and includes a very/very good breakfast in good/clean & spacious dining room.
I had room without en-suite ...2 rooms with a shared toilet and shower and bathroom robes supplied.....sharing, I never encountered any problem :o) I must have found it good value as, due to unforeseen circumstances I required another nights accommodation in York, but they were already fully booked and did their utmost to help me when told/informed of my predicament......I would not rate your chances of getting a room, if turning up on the doorstep without prior booking lol :o)
Thank you both for an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Traffic noise could affect some people in front rooms, as the premises is on a busy road.

Stayed at the B&B as I was visiting York University early the next morning and wanted to beat the traffic. Was met by the owner who sorted my free parking for me. He was very welcoming and made my stay very pleasant indeed. The B&B itself was really clean and comfortable; the breakfast was delicious. Lots of tea & coffee in room too. Lovely B&B and great staff. Cannot fault it. Can thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Will visit again.

Room Tip: I had a room on the top floor and the stairs may be a problem if you have mobility problems.

We were welcomed by Nigel and Wendy on a cold evening and it was like staying with friends. Wendy gave us plenty of information about how to get around and what to see in York and nothing was too much to ask. The room was nice, clean and cosy and the breakfast was delicious. I would stay here again no questions!

My wife and I enjoyed an overnight stay in this very presentable, warm and inviting guest house. Wendy and Nigel were very friendly, helpful and keen to ensure that we had a good experience. Our room was compact but clean, with all the essentials and comfortable beds. Their commitment to catering for people with different dietary requirements deserves commendation, especially when even the 'bigger names' fall short of providing a personal service. We enjoyed a substantial and tasty vegan breakfast of fruit juice, cereals, soya milk, vegan sausage, mushrooms, tomato and beans, toast with dairy free spread and preserves. Flexibility regarding check in time was appreciated and the location was excellent as we enjoyed the short but scenic riverside walk into town. Thanks again for your hospitality, tailor-made service and attention to detail.
