Reviewed November 25, 2013

We have just returned from a weekend break at Bishops Guest House York, stayed for 2 nights from 23.11.13, I can honestly say it was absolutely superb. Debra and Marco really made our stay lovely, our room was fantastic, peaceful and comfortable with high quality furniture and decor and so many choices for breakfast, really sets you up for the day.

I would not hesitate in recommending this gem of a guest house which is so deserving of all the awards it has won, it was everything we hoped for and more....

Hope to see you again Debra and Marco in the not so distant future
Kind regards
Karen & John

Room Tip: Room No. 7 is fantastic...

We had a room in the annex, which has a separate door from the main hotel and it turns out, a separate boiler. We arrived back from a day in York around 4pm to a cold room and no heating on. When I spoke to owner to tell him our room was cold I was told that the heating came on at 5.30. Not very satisfactory when you paying nearly £100 a night and its freezing outside. We had been encouraged to pay upon arrival but this didn't stop the owner running after us when we were leaving, banging on the car roof to stop us driving off and questioning how we had paid, indeed questioning if we had paid.

We aren't hard to please but overall, being cold and having our honesty questioned does mean that for us this was not a great experience and we won't be returning.

Hotel lovely and bedrooms up to date and very clean. All facilities available. En suite room, bathroom excellent size. Been to some hotels and the bathrooms/shower room are too small.

Breakfast was excellent, plenty of food and staff were very accommodating. Walk into the centre of York only takes approximately 15 minutes. Would definitely return.

This accommodation is beautifully presented and a real gem on the outskirts of the city of York. The staff were extremely friendly and from the moment we walked in we felt like there was a real interest in us and a definite determination to make sure we made the most of our stay. Delicious breakfast with plenty of choice was enjoyed in the immaculate dining room and although we didn't have time to use it, there was a lovely lounge area where drinks and snacks could be enjoyed.
A special thank you to Marco for taking the time to acknowledge my daughter (an avid Sunderland fan) who was extremely honoured to have her breakfast cooked by a 'Sunderland' legend!

Just an amazing house, the bedrooms are just beautiful and the staff is great. It's a 15 minute walk to the tourist area but big deal. Breakfasts were just fantastic. Highly recommend this to anyone. There is a bus route outside and a corner store about 2 blocks away

What a place. For a guest house the accommodation and service is like a 5 star hotel. Beautiful decor and all the little extra's in the rooms made our stay that extra special. We have stayed on a number of occasions and have never left disappointed. On this occasion we took our daughter and her boyfriend and they too loved their stay. We'll be back soon.

Room Tip: N/A We have stayed many times and had rooms on all 3 levels. All excellent and of a high standard.

Our room at Bishops was just lovely. We had two nights here so took advantage of the comfort provided there with plenty of space in our room. Leather couch to relax on after a busy day before heading out again for dinner. On the ground floor so easy to bring our luggage in. The staff could not have been more helpful with directions and advice. We were happy to get some laundry done while there without needing to find a Laundromat. Breakfast was enjoyable with plenty of room for guests in the Dining Room. There is so much to see and do in York and so pleased we stayed for two nights. The Rail Museum is a must especially if it is raining and even if you think, like I did, it is not for you, it will be, believe me! Something for everyone there.

Room Tip: The room on the ground floor we had was close to Reception but it had a little room as an entry with...
