“Home from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

My partner and i stayed at gregorys guest house for 3 nights on the 10th of August 2012. We both can not speak highly enough of our hosts Bev and martin, once we had arrived we were taken to our room and were then given coffee and warm homemade shortbread.....delicious! The room was perfect, very clean and tidy with a lovely shower. The breakfasts were amazing with a fantastic choice....nothing is too much trouble. Whilst staying my partner and i got engaged and when we returned to the guest house to our surprise bev and martin had left a card, chocs and a balloon in our room.....so thoughtful. Thankyou Bev and martin for a wonderful stay, we will definately be back. Matthew and Lorraine

Stayed in the twin room for one night. Bev & Martin were great hosts and made us feel more than welcome. The attic room was bigger than I expected after I had read previous reviews. We certainly didn’t feel cramped. Considering it was the attic room the bathroom facilities were also adequate and the shower pressure good. Regarding the comments some people had previously made regarding the Lshaped dining area, we were expecting to be eating in some cramped space. This wasn’t the case. The dining area to us was light and airy and there was an outside view onto a patio area. It more than a pleasant place to eat as far as we were concerned. Breakfast was great with a choice of options and dietary issues are taken into consideration. The place was clean and welcoming and Bev was more than helpful with giving information on where to eat. Martin was a hero with helping us upstairs with our cases on arrival and helping us get them down on leaving. Cheers! Even booking a taxi for us wasn’t too much trouble. On visiting York previously we had stayed at a guesthouse with a higher rating on trip adviser. We were intending to stay there again but no rooms were available. However, after visiting Gregory’s this would now be our preferred choice in future as we felt the service offered was much better. It really made a difference that they had time for us and didn’t appear to be hidden away. Thanks to them both for their hospitality! As far as we were concerned this place is great value for money.

We chose Gregory's after reading all the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed! We stayed for three nights and had such a lovely time, we are already planning to stay again. The room was of an excellent standard, and cleaned/tidied everyday. Breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of choice. Finally, Bev and Martin were an absolute delight! Such lovely people, very welcoming, helpful and overall great hosts. We would strongly recommend that anybody staying in York visit Gregory's!

My girlfriend and I stayed for two nights, and were very impressed with Gregory's. We were met with homemade shortbread and a luxurious room. Martin and especially Bev had lots of good advice about restaurants to go to, and sites to see. Breakfast was delicious and we were well looked after.
It is an attractive 15 minute walk to the City Center and a 5 minute taxi ride to the station.
If I were to return to York, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

My wife and I have stayed at Gregorys a number of times and have never been disappointed. we only stay in city centre hotels if Gregorys is fully booked.
What can I say that other reviewers haven't already said?
Bev and Martin, the owners, are wonderful hosts. Nothing is too much trouble.
The rooms are well appointed, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfast choice is brilliant and the food is delicious and locally sourced.
The location is great. It's a leisurely fifteen to twenty minute walk into the city centre, either through a small 'villagey' set of shops or via a riverside walk. If you don't fancy a walk, therte's a bus-stop directly opposite Gregorys and it takes only five minutes to get into York city centre.
All in all, a great stay. Thank you to the owners!

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights. The location was excellent as we could park the car and it was a lovely stroll along the riverside into the town centre. Martin and Bev were perfect hosts, lots of local knowledge and very friendly. We normally stay in hotels when away from home and were unsure of staying in a guest house. We were pleasantly surprised by our experience. The room while not the largest we have stayed in was perfectly comfortable and adequate for our needs and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was excellent and the personal service we received could not be matched by any hotel. The greatest compliment we could give to Gregory's is that should we return to York in the future, we would not book anywhere else and would definitely feel comfortable about recommending Gregory's to our friends.

A real find if your going to York. Its great value - the rooms are lovely, the owners are friendly and the breakfast is fantastic! If you have an mobility issues or want to be right in the centre then its probably not for you, but its only a 10 minute walk or so into the centre or a short bus ride (bus stop right outside the guest house).

Stayed here numerous times and will again if I go to York. They even added personal touches as it was my bf's birthday so they put a card on the bed with balloons/banner. I asked if they could put some champagne in the fridge and bring it to breakfast the next day and they did that as well.

Also great if your bringing a car as there is plenty of street parking.
