Linnies York B&B
Ranked #124 of 194 York B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Myself and my wife have just had a fantastic weekend in York where we stayed with Linnie and Steve in what we can only describe as the best B&B we've ever stayed at. From the moment we knocked on the front door till the day left we could not complain about a single aspect of our stay.
Our hosts were friendly, welcoming,attentive and interesting, their home is beautiful throughout and is full of interesting features from top to bottom. Our room with ensuite was excellent and dressed to an excellent standard. If you're thinking of visiting York definitely try Linnies rather than a non descript hotel chain where people don't interact with you.

We stayed at Linnies for 1 night with my mum. We found the stay enjoyable and relaxing and nothing seemed too much trouble. We went to York centre on the night and it's only a short bus ride to the centre. Breakfast was lovely and loved the little touches of detail around the house. The check out time was really great and both Linnie and Steve tailored the service to our needs. Loved the dogs of course! Thanks again x x Sally and Carol

Many thanks for the positive review. We like our artifacts and scour antiques shops and car boots to look for them. It's nice to share them with people who appreciate them!

Wish we had been staying for longer - Lynn and Steve have a lovely home full of character. They were friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was very comfortable had everything we could want along with some nice little extra touches. Accommodation was spotlessly clean throughout. The atmosphere at breakfast was cosy and relaxing and the food was delicious. Would highly recommend this B&B especially for those who love home comforts and relaxed surroundings.

Thanks for the very positive review. Linnie was particularly pleased with the 'spotless' comment as keeping an old Victorian house clean is a real battle! We hope to see you again soon!

Stayed at Linnies Sat 27th October 2012 - in the super en-suite room - Arrived about 4.30 and was greeted by Linnie and Steve the owners and Doogle and Bella their nutty poodle dogs - ha so lovely - didnt want to leave. Linnie and Steve are full of tales and travels - could have listened for ever. Their home is lovely abit like aladins cave - amazing taste and nic nacs - they had the proper victorian fire on when we arrived and Linnie had done some home baking - which my companion decided to sample (I was saving myself as we went to Jamies at nite). Had a marvellous choice at breakfast - from yogurt,cereal to full english which was amazing - proper home cooked breakfast !! and unlimited tea and coffee/juice. I highly recommend Linnies (and Steves) fantastic couple and nothings too much trouble. If I go back to York ill be giving them a call. Thanks for your hospitality! Your an amazing couple and love your dogs. x Tracy
