“Delightful delightful delightful”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

What a gem! Found this wonderful B&B through Visit York website. After short trip moving around Yorkshire our stay was an afterthought - we only needed accommodation for one night. As soon as we walked through the front door we so wished we'd booked for longer at Bishops and used it as our base and travelled around. We needed two rooms (single & double) and Bishops came up trumps! Unlike experience in other places both rooms were beautifully decorated, clean and smart with beautiful ensuite facilities. A lovely lady welcomed us and gave directions, recommended restaurant (Delrio's near Micklegate - fab-u-lous!!) and suggested places to visit. York centre in walking distance so easily accessible. Breakfast was freshly cooked and first class with great choice. It's taken us almost 30 years to visit York again - we definitely want to come back sooner next time and Bishops will be the only place we stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in Orchard Suite on top floor at front of house - very comfortable and quiet with bonus of...

Me and my partner stayed here in September 2012 for two nights. This is a fabulous B&B with lovely, well decorated rooms, providing everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The owners were very helpful and provided us with information on the areas to visit during our stay. The breakfasts were excellent, with a wide variety provided (full english, cereals, fruit, pastries, toast etc). The B&B is in a very convenient location, close enough to walk into the centre and local attractions e.g the railway museum, York city walls etc. It is also within walking distance of the Railway station and easy to find with the directions provided.

We also had a lovely meal in a traditional Italian restaurant 'Delrios' (recommended by the B&B owners) which is within walking distance to the B&B. All in all, I would say this was a 5* stay and we would definitely return if we were to visit York again.

We frequently stay at bishops and enjoy room 2 with the 4 poster bed,new bathroom,leather reclining sofa and all those little extras. Breakfast is great,debby the owner made special food for my ceoliacs and I felt less of a nuisance asking her to do so.lovely bread,jam and hot food too. Freshly cooked food and lovely staff. Cute dog and the gardens were pretty. Nice walk to town and if it rains cheap taxi. Walls are great fun and lots of eats around the place. Hotel is quiet and peaceful retreat,with a lounge and mini bar area.

A lovely hotel with fantastic customer service. The staff have extensive local knowledge and are happy to volunteer this information. Breakfast very good as well. We stayed in the Orchard room on the top floor, whilst the shower was a bit lacking, the staff informed us that it was about to be replaced with a better one so wouldn't let this put you off.
We are a young gay couple and the staff were not bothered about having us stay. Will definitely stay here again.

The attention to detail was second to none; it’s the little touches that make your stay away from home pleasant, and there were plenty of those, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Marco and Deborah, 5 stars. Up the Palace !!

Lovely place to stay with very friendly owners and staff, who were all keen to ensure we knew how to get about in York and the best places to visit.
Room was lovely with very fresh bathroom (albeit a little on the small side), and the four poster bed was very comfortable and added a touch of elegance.
Breakfast was also very nice and freshly cooked to order, with a lovely buffet table of fruits, cereals etc to choose from.
Location is easy to find however it was a little bit further out of town than we expected (approx. 20 min walk into the centre of things, which was ok as the weather was fine but would not have been so great had it been wet).
Would stay again if we return to York.

Have just got back from a lovely short breark at Bishops. We'd looked at some of the reviews and where impressed by the comments so decided to give it ago. The greeting was warm and friendly when we arrived, and they couldn't do enough for us, asking us if we'd visited York before, and offering points of interest to visit during our stay. The room was lovely. The breakfast was good, but I would like to see a bit more of a variety, as whilst my partner enjoys a full breakfast I'm not so keen. What would be really nice would have been a bowl of porridge with some fruit but I must stay that the girl serving during breakfast was very helpful. If your planning a visit to York then I would highly recommend this place.

Thank you for all the lovely comments. We do serve porridge regularly, with honey for our health concious guests and treacle for the less so! We are always happy to adapt anything on our breakfast menu and try to meet most special dietary requirements so please always feel free to ask
