“As good as a hotel”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We only stayed one night and arrived in the pouring rain (it is about a 20-minute walk from the station) but the hosts welcomed us and we were well looked after. Breakfast was very nice. Our room had a shared bathroom in the hall but that wasn't a problem and we got to wear the funky robes!

Great B&B in York, Janine & Steve were great hosts, staff friendly nothing too much trouble. Lovely clean rooms, great breakfast. We understand Janine & Steve have only been there since March and have plans to upgrade in the New Year, we are sure they will be given 4 stars when this happens. The locality to the centre of York is fantastic, a short walk along the river would recommend this guesthouse to anybody.

We will be visiting again!!

Hi Sue & Pete, It was great to see you and so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are closing down for the month of January so that all the rooms can be decorated and refurbished. We would like to keep to the 3 star grading but offer a 4 star service.

Hope to see you both again in the New Year when you are back from your jaunt in Spain.

We were welcomed at the door when we arrived and made very much to feel at home. Had booked a double en suite for me and my 12 year old daughter, which was very warm and cosy and exceptionally clean. Janine gave us a welcome pack, which was very much appreciated, and included a ' what's on' guide, maps, etc,, and showed us the best way to walk into the city centre (10 minutes by the river). Breakfast was excellent. The only comment I would make is that cereal (on the menu and on the welcome pack) is spelt cerial! (but then at York Railway Station 'clearance height' is spelt clearence (twice!!). Will definitely be staying again.

Our first foray into a B&B with my family (wife, daughter and me) was a truly wonderful experience. Chelmsford was very easy to find in York and Steve and Janine were there to greet us and give us the house rules. They recommended a great pub across the street for our dinner. We were there for 3 days and feel that York was a highlight of our trip to the UK. Chelmsford was the center of our experiences for Whitby and Castle Howard, Shambles and the Minster.

The morning breakfasts were great and well prepared. The room was comfortable and charming. The wifi was weak and the bathroom a tad small for the 3 of us...but nothing we couldn't handle. As a lifelong California driver Steve even tried to help me on my "round about" question. It was great experience and recommend Chelmsford to anyone.
