“Excellent rooms and price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

Me and my friend went for a girls weekend away. From the minute we got there we were made to feel welcome and were given refreshments. Our room was lovely and was spotless. The owners Linnie and Stephen are really nice and made us feel very welcome and told us about all the different places to eat and drink which is very helpful as there is many places in York. Even though we didn't have a en suite in our room it was only across the landing and was lovely and clean and spacious. The House it self is full of character with trinkets and treasures in every room. Breakfast was excellent and you had lots of choice I've already booked to go back again. For my first wedding anniversary can't wait.

Linnies B&B was absolutely beautiful and right down my street. Linnie and Steve were both very friendly and welcoming, they both made us feel right at home.

One of the best B&B's i have stayed in and felt very spoilt. Wish we had time to stay for longer!

We were lucky that we were the only guest staying so had the place to ourselves :), the room was lovely comfortable and i enjoyed relaxing in the bath! Very luxurious.

Linnies is a short 10 minute walk from the centre of York and its very easy to get there and back.

Breakfast was great, lots of choice and cooked really well :)

I would definitely reccommend Linnies to all of my friends and family. Hopefully next time we are up in the York area there will be room for us to stay again.

Thank you :D from a very happy customer.

Stayed for 2 nights,but wish it could've been more..superb B & B with lovely en suite room,and a lovely tranquill and relaxing breakfast in the morning.From the minuite we walked through the door, we felt right at home due to the wonderful hospitality from Linnie and Steve,who were very helpful and just couldn't do enough for us..also have to mention their 2 poodles,Bella and Dougall,who were friendly,lovely dogs...In a good location,its only 10 mins walk to the centre of York,and would recommend to anyone looking for a short break...or longer...David & Angela.

Me and my partner stayed here for one night 06/08 and it was honestly the best experience of staying in a b and b we have ever had. The hospitality was second to none and it really felt like we were staying at a family members house. The room was lovely and the whole house had little quirky surprises all over and the breakfast was also 5 star quality. We will definitely be going back and would recommend to anyone and everyone. Also have to mention how lovely it was to meet the dogs and personally thank Linnie and Steve for putting up with us after a few too many glasses of wine. Amazing people, amazing property!

Our third stay at Linnies and perfect as ever. Linnie and Steve made us so welcome in their beautiful victorian town house. Linnies little touches make it..wine glass by the slipper bath, wonderful range of bath products, after 8 mints, water etc. The rooms are beautiful with curios and quality textiles snd furnishings. Also..best breakfast ever, the set table looks grand fit for a queen!

We stayed for just one night but what a fantastic place to stay, such a warm welcome when we arrived even though it was 9pm and the room was everything I hoped for. We stayed at the top of the house and the room was amazing, so many little things that helped make our stay special and my partner so pleased to find a slipper bath in the ensuite rather than the usual shower. Located close to the center of York it meant that we could just walk in and forget the car - so handy. Steve and Linnie were fanatastic hosts and breakfast was a treat indeed.

We stayed one night. The shared bathroom was far more than expected. I loved the shower! The entire house is decorated beautifully. Linnie and Steve were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was delicious. We also loved Dougal & Bella.
