Reviewed August 7, 2006

The Dairy Guest House is in a good location for exploring York. On road parking permit is provided, and if you arrive early there is a small shoppers car park about two minutes walk. Small convenience store on the corner is useful. Rooms comfortable, service and breakfast excellent.

We booked this guest house after reading the recommendations on this site and were not disappointed. Lovely guest house with home from home comforts. Great breakfast and exceptionally comfy beds. The week-end we stayed had fabulous weather and we enjoyed sipping our wine in the courtyard. Ian and Joanne were exceptional hosts who provided us with all the local information required to make our visit to York a very memorable one.

Spent two nights at the Dairy Guest House during our two week trip to UK. We were suprised to find that the guest house was indeed a townhouse on a local street, we had pictured something else from its name. That being said, behind the front door, it is a lovely guest house. The owners (although we only met Ian) preserved much of the charm of this building which indeed was used as a dairy house. You can still see where they used to bring the horses carrying the jugs of milk into the building. The original tile and stained glass door remain in the entryway. We stayed in a quiet family room in the back off a lovely flowered courtyard. The door to our room even split in half like the stable doors. Our room was large with a double bed and two twin beds, perfect for our family of four. The bathroom is the smallest we had while in the UK which made it a bit challenging (and funny) for the four of us to use the bathroom/shower in the morning. The breakfasts were fresh, made to order and served in a beautiful dining room. You have to order your breakfast choices by the night before but we were able to put in our order for the next morning before we set out for the day, since we usually returned quite late. I did miss getting to chat with the owners during breakfast as we did in so many places, but they were busy in the kitchen cooking the wonderful breakfasts. We had a rental car with us (which they provide a permit for on street parking near the guest house) but did not need it. It was only a 10-15 minute walk into the city center and it was nice to not have to use a bus or underground as with so much of the rest of our trip. There is a small food store on the corner which was convenient for buying some snacks. York was lovely and easily navigated by foot, an interesting mix of historic buildings and modern day shopping. We thoroughly enjoyed "The Original Ghost Walking Tour" (recommended to us by Ian), walking the City Walls, as well as afternoon tea at "Bettys" and an outside table at "Harkers" on St. Helen's Square to people watch and have dinner. We really enjoyed our time in York.

We enjoyed this lovely B & B. Ian and Joanne were exceptional hosts and provided service way above what we expected. The house is immaculately clean with nice big rooms. Breakfast is cooked to order with the freshest of ingredients and is absolutely yummy. Ian recommended several good places to eat. We tried several and found them to be excellent. The house is quiet and is within a short walk of the train and bus station, as well as the center of town. They have even provided stereo music and DVD's in the room....we just found this to be an exceptional property run by the best people. Carole Biancur, Colorado, USA
