Excellent B&B. Great location - really close to city centre. Comfortable warm rooms. Bathroom in room 1 is very small, but does the job. Bathroom in room 4 is fabulous! Host is a friendly and friendly and polite chap. Breakfast superb.

Would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my young son and will definitely return. The house is in a fab location, 5-10 mins from NRM, yorvik, Rowntree Park, etc and has lovely eateries nearby including Pig and Pastry, trinacria and not to mention Meltons right next door. The room was ground floor, had plenty of storage space and mirrors and had a lovely deep bath, perfect to soak those aching legs and feet after a long day exploring. Nice thick white towels too. Plenty of tea, coffee, hot choc, biscuits, bottled water and chocs which were replenished daily and wine glasses. The double bed and pillows were comfortable and there was no road noise. You adjust heating yourself which is great. The hosts were very accommodating, answering my questions about the locality. Breakfast was nice and extra tea/toast were offered. Parking was literally a stone throw away. All in all, a gem. Very happy with my stay.

Just got back from a weekend stay at the Dairy Guest House.Our room was very comfortable.
The bed was great and we slept really well.There was plenty of tea and coffee in the room along with bottled water and chocolates which i thought was good.Breakfast was fantastic.We had cereal followed by a full english which was delicious.
Good location about a 10 minute stroll into town.Would recommend this to anyone looking for a good value place to stay.

Just back from a very relaxing long weekend in York , stopped at the Dairy Guest House, what a gem of a place, fab rooms and what a brilliant atmosphere. Very personal service, everything you could want in your room and anything extra you needed you just had to ask. Very close to everything, and the few shops on the way into the city centre are great. Please take time to have a lunch , dinner or homemade icecream at Trinacria Sicilian Cafe bar, the food and service is top notch. we went in everyday we were there. Thank you all for helping to make the weekend special , will definately return and recommend to everyone and very reasonable. What a Gem . x

Room Tip: All the rooms were great , we were at the back but i don't think it makes a difference.

Although the bed linen was clean and the bed was comfortable the decor throughout is shabby and needs updating. The windows were filthy and the corners could do with a good clean. There was dust on the back of the bathroom door and a cobweb on the wall. The shower curtain was pretty disgusting. I chose this guest house as it had 4 stars (or roses, or whatever the grade is from visit England) but it wasn't up to the standard I would expect at that grade. The cooked breakfast was good but the coffee and orange juice were of a poor standard. Overall this was a disappointing experience and I would not go back again.

We stayed three nights here , very nice, clean, comfortable and good breakfasts. Our host Ken was very accomodating and provided very helpful advice regards planning our stay/ travels in Yorkshire. We would reccomend this place and return if we had the opportunity
