“What a gorgeous place!”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

I booked one night at the Blue Rooms for my boyfriend's birthday, and although I knew he would be pleasantly surprised I wasn't expecting to also be stunned by the sheer size and quality of the rooms that make up Apartment 3. The champagne on ice went down a treat, and the Sunday breakfast was filling and delicious, particularly the loaf of crusty bread! I thought it was certainly value for money when considering all the little details on top of the rooms themselves. The location is excellent, well within walking distance of the main sights of York, and the lady who directed us to our room was very chatty and made us feel extremely welcome. My only gripe is that I opted for one night instead of one week.

Stayed recently in room 3 which is not a room but an entire apartment and a very stylish one at that.Complimentary champagne and drinks in a well equipped kitchen with dining area,fabulous lounge, wonderful bathroom and bedroom with the finest quality towels and bedding.Tasteful and high quality throughout ,the attention to detail is very evident.I would not consider staying anywhere else in York in the future.

Room Tip: Room 3 on the top floor is magnificent.

If you are in York then this is the place to stay. It has a brilliant central location with parking. The room (4) was spacious and very clean. All the extras - breakfast, drinks, champagne and fruit - add to how wonderful the stay was. We overlooked the River Foss which was great (except the loud geese early in the morning). A perfect place to stay!

We've been to a lot of places and stayed in many accommodations but the Maisonette apartment at the Blue Rooms ranks as the most well designed, well thought out and perfect family accommodation's ever. Two stories, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and an incredibly well equipped kitchen served us very well. The master bedroom is about one-and-a-half times the size of your average Deluxe Suite at a Crowne Plaza. The attention to detail is amazing and the service is excellent. The temptation was to stay and enjoy the space but when you are so perfectly located near the Shambles, the Minster, etc. how can you not get up and roam? The icing on the cake was the associated Blue Bicycle restaurant. We were served some of the best food of our 3 week stay in the U.K. Thanks to everyone at the Blue Rooms, you made a wonderful trip even better.

We had big problems trying to find the blue rooms as the satnav takes you to the rear of the property.
I phoned the blue bicycle for directions and bless them they guided us in,the only tip i can give is if the shambles is on your left take the first right and it is on the right.
There was the complimentary Chempers on ice and a frigde full of mixers/jams etc and the full breakfast.the fresh bread was delivered each afternoon.
The apartment number 1 was spotless and there was nothing that you needed that wasnt in the room. The room does not look over the river but that did not bother us we totally enjoyed our stay,thank you to the staff.

Room Tip: If you want peace and quiet room 1

Fantastic stay the Blue Rooms stayed in the large apartment balcony on to the river. Would highly recommend the Blue Rooms to everyone, large rooms, spacious kitchen and bedroom to die for. Right in the heart of the York, within walking distance to the shops and bars/restaurants, worth every penny and wouldnt stay anywhere else when visiting York. Booking at the Blue Bicylce is a must the food is devine. Everything is catered for in the apartment food, wine, even nightcaps, fridge full of drinks...... this has got to be my all time favourite place, the staff cant help you enought and even let you in the apartment early. Dont hesitate just book it!!

Room Tip: All rooms are fabulous right on the river
