We spent 4 nights at the Chelmsford and really enjoyed our stay. We were given a warm welcome by Steve when we arrived, who showed us where to park (right outside) and gave us a parking permit so you can leave your car as long as you want. You won't need if all you are going to do is visit York as it's just a pleasant 10 minute walk by the river into town. Steve then asked what our plans were and gave us maps and guidance for our sightseeing.
The room we had was actually for 3 so a decent size, with ensuite shower/toilet and a sink in the room. Breakfast was lovely - we didn't have the full works but they are happy to provide what you want. I opted for boiled eggs on a couple of occasions and got two perfectly cooked eggs complete with ready cut 'soldiers'! The girls that help Steve are lovely - polite and friendly.
Only down point I can think of is that the bed, although queensize, was two singles joined together and there was a curious ridge down the middle. The pillows were a bit hard too. But I know they have not long taken over the place and there are plans to upgrade decor/beds etc. It certainly didn't stop us having a good night sleep!
All in all a lovely B&B - clean, comfortable and friendly - and we would happily recommend it to friends and hopefully be back soon ourselves some day.
