Stayed for 3 nights with friends weekend 27 November. We booked the 2 bedroom maisonette and we were not disappointed. We had a chilled bottle of champers and a basket of fruit waiting for us on arrival. The place was spotlessly clean and the décor very tastefully done. The fridge was fully stocked with breakfast goodies, as well as cereal, bread, whiskey and gin!!! Every time we opened the fridge during our stay, the food seemed to have multiplied. I would not hesitate to stay here again, as the location and pristine condition of the Blue rooms is fabulous. The only negative aspect is that the car park is titchy tiny, however this is pre-warned on the website. Once you get a space, you have no need to use it again until you leave, as everything is in walking distance - heaven.

Tucked away behind the Blue Bicycle Restaurant, you can find a few rooms to rent during your stay in York. The Blue Rooms. They are marvelous! Our family of three rented a 2-bedroom suite apartment. Heavenly! Very well-stocked and supplied kitchen. The fresh bread loaves in the morning were delicious! We had a good size sitting area on the main floor, with a large HD TV, and a washer/dryer unit ensuite. (They were well used too!)

The two large bedrooms (1 king bed, and the other 2 twins) were perfect for our family of 3. Each room had plenty of space for the suitcases, and for walking around.

This hotel was very close and convenient walking distance to The Shambles and historic York. They were extremely clean, and very accommodating for our family. The black out curtains worked really well in the bedrooms upstairs. As you close the door to leave your apartment, you enter into the enclosed brick courtyard. Very well lit and safe.

There was a very helpful, courteous staff. They made it a real treat for us to stay there. The bathroom has lots of space for our bathroom items. Very spacious room. Both a shower and a tub. Plus, very large, fluffy bath towels! Such a great shower!

Even though the garbage truck came early one morning for pick up, we had two very quiet nights sleep.

Very centrally located to the historic center of town. We enjoyed walking to different sites.

We thoroughly recommend these wonderful family apartments. So clean and so much room. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit!

Room Tip: If you will be driving a car, be sure to include you need a place to park your car. There is very LIMITED parking in the courtyard.

We stayed here for 2 nights. What a great place. We were late getting to the apartment due to traffic and you check in by going into the Blue Bicycle restaurant. It was quick and painless. We were guided into the small courtyard for parkin by one of the guys from the resturant. He was polite, courteous and very helpful. And yes the parking area is tight, but if you are not using the car for the next few days then don't worry.
We were in apartment 6. It was just great. Spotless and very comfortable. All you need is there too. The complimentary food and drink was excellent.
The apartments are close to everything in York. Loads of restaurants and coffee bars. You will be spolit for choice.
Great place to stay, would recommend and would definitely return.

I have just recently stayed here with my mum for 2 nights and what a fantastic place to stay! We stayed in apartment 6, it was very well equipped with all that we needed, lovely and clean, comfy beds and a nice warm welcome! The Blue Rooms are centrally located with easy access to the Shambles and other tourist attractions, not to mention being close to some lovely bars and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will definitely be returning to The Blue Rooms again!

Booked this a month or so ago as we wanted to visit the Blue Bicycle. We had heard great things.
It was a great location to nearby pubs and places to visit. Apartment was clean and warm and a gigantic bed!
Breakfast provided was delicious and we really appreciated the champagne on arrival. Great nights sleep. Thank you.
