“As good as everyone else says!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

It's been a while since I stayed in a B&B as I usually don't have time to plan and play it safe with hotel chains, so the hospitality I was greeted with from Martin and Bev came as a bit of a shock to the system! We were given tea and delicious homemade biscuits and help with our sightseeing itinerary and when we returned in the evening there were hot water bottles in our bed! The breakfast menu catered for all appetites and our Full English was of good quality (none of those cheap thin sausages!) and well cooked. I'm glad I spent the time to hunt this little gem out. Why can't every place just put that little bit more effort in like this B&B has?

We are so pleased you both enjoyed your stay here with in our home and great to learn you loved our hospitality 'a shock to the system.' After a long journey you welcomed our homeade shortbread and a good cuppa just to recharge your batteries ready for sightseeing. Our tips on sightseeing came in handy as you were able to get the most out of your day. Our breakfast really hit the spot and you loved the fact that all our ingredients were sourced locally. Thanks again for your very kind comments we look forward to the next time but for now take care. Martin & Bev xxx

A return visit to Gregory's Guest House and met with an extremely warm welcome. Bev and Martin are excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Home made bread, biscuits and preserves and even a hot water bottle at bed time. If you're looking for home comforts a warm welcome and excellent value for money you can't go wrong with Gregorys. Will definately be back.

My wife and I stayed for two nights whilst on a sightseeing/shopping break in the lovely city of York.
This was a return visit and we certainly weren't disappointed. As other reviewers have noted, Martin and Bev are brilliant hosts, so thoughtful - nothing is too much trouble. We were greeted with coffee and delicious home-made shortcake (still warm) - thankyou!
The rooms are very comfortable with lots of lovely little touches.
The breakfast is delicious! A full English is available with locally sourced ingredients. There's also fresh fruit-salad, cereals, home-made preserves . . .
York city centre is easily accessible on foot. We walked into York along the riverside route, and back along Bishopthorpe Road through a small parade of shops (calling into the greengrocers, bakers and antique shop on the way!).
Gregorys certainly deserves its Tripadvisor rating as one of the most highly rated guest houses in York.
We'll definitely stay here on our next visit to the city.

What a lovely review from you both we are so pleased you continue to enjoy your stay here with us we must say that you are truly lovely people. You always say nice things about our shortbread and our breakfasts which you both thoroughly enjoy. We would just like to thank you both for your kind comments about our hospitality and how were are 'great hosts' and 'thoughtful.' You always love staying here with us and the walk into York along the riverside path its your favourite and as you say you can 'walk on foot.' You are both right about our little shops up the road from us Deli Italian and Indian are great places to eat and for more energetic types there is Cycle Heaven a cycle shop. We look forward to the next time but from us both here take care and bye for now. Martin & Bev xxxxx

This was our first time in York was made to feel welcome straight away from Martin and Bev we were greeted with tea and the best homemade shortbread I've ever had (sorry nan), Followed by a card on the bed for my girlfriends birthday. its all the little things that add up and thats definitely what you get from staying here with martin and Bev. It was also the first time I had ever stayed in a guest house being young we didn't know what to expect it had to be one of the best places I've stayed at Bev gave us advice as soon as we got there on what to do where to eat. The accommodation itself i could not fault at all it was clean,spacious, quiet and warm all that I wanted. The breakfast set you up for the day with a great choice but I recommend the full English beautiful. The location is ideal shop next door if need be Indian over the road which was very nice as well, and only a short but nice walk into the city of York. Thanks to Martin and Bev who made lauras 20th a great weekend

Lovely stay here, Bev and Martin made us feel welcome instantly. The rooms were cosy and there were hot water bottles in the bed in the evenings which was a nice touch. Nice breakfasts and a good location, being about 15 mins walk into the centre of York. We didnt drive but there seemed to be plenty of street parking which is handy for York. Thanks for a great weekend!

I have stayed at Gregory's Guest House a for a total of seven nights over the last 3 months in 2012.
First of all, the welcome received from Martin and Bev is second to none; I was offered a drink and some delicious home-made shortbread as soon as I was shown to my room - perfect after a long day!!
The rooms are clean and tidy, nicely decorated and well-equipped with tea/coffee making facilities, large wardrobe and TV/DVD player. Also the beds are very comfortable - I always get a good night's sleep when I stay here!
Bev's breakfasts are excellent with a lot of choice. I usually have a fruit salad, as I never have time for a long breakfast in the mornings before Uni, but I'm sure the rest of the options are just as delicious.
Martin and Bev are wonderful hosts - very generous and genuine people. They often go above and beyond what is required of them, in order to help their guests.

Overall, a fantastic place to stay in York. If you are looking for a friendly and welcoming B&B, then look no further - Gregory's is the place for you!
