II travelled with my elderly father to York for a nostalgic visit. We wanted somewhere close to the city centre as he is unable to walk far and I have to push him most of the time in a wheelchair. Barbican House proved to be the perfect location, just outside the city walls and within easy walking distance of all the major attractions. The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming and gave us ideas on where to eat and places to visit. They carried our cases up to our rooms and made sure that we had a convenient parking space in the car park so that my father's wheelchair could be taken in and out of the car with ease.. One of the best things for me was the fantastic breakfast, such an array of delicious foods and no skimping on the quality or quatity. Our rooms were well equipped with plenty of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, horlicks, biscuits and even sherry if you fancy the odd tipple, the beds were comfortable and the ensuite, just like the rest of the guest house was absolutely spotless. I would thoroughly recomment Barbican House to anyone else.
