My Boyfriend and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Barbican House. We are a young couple (20 and 21) but enjoyed our stay here as much as anyone else. Adrian and Ann are very welcoming and ensure you feel comfortable. Adrian recommended some restaurants and bars upon arrival and marked them on a map. We stayed in Room 7 and loved it. It was at the front of the B&B so it was directly on the roadside, although this was not a problem. It is also ground floor room so no stairs to climb. The bed was extremely comfy!! We had full English breakfasts both mornings and they were lovely. There were also cereals, pastries, fruit, yogurts and fresh orange to choose from too.
Barbican House is literally a 3 minute walk to Barbican Centre. It was only a 10 minute walk into the centre too. Just down from Barbican Centre was an Italian Restuarant called 'Totos' which Adrian recommended to us, we ate there on Saturday night and it was delicious. If you mention you are staying at Barbican House you will receive 10% off the bill too.
On our final day we visited York dungeons which is only a 15/20 minute walk from Barbican House and although we had checked out, Adrian offered for me to leave my car on the driveway to save spending money on car parks in the centre. The driveway is at the side of Barbican House and has CCTV so no need to worry about that!
All in all, we will definitely stay here next time we visit York, without a doubt!!
