Stayed at the above over Easter, celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary, and once again Ian & Ann made us feel welcome, Ian cooked us his usual high standard Breakfast, this was our 6th or 7th stay and it won't be our last!, The modern B & B has all you need for a comfortable stay including off road parking, we informed Ian we would be arriving at 10am which wasn't a problem so we could maximise our two days away. Ian & Ann are a wealth of information regarding York, you can access some amazing deals for eating out via their computor in the lounge/dining area

This as our second visit to Bootham Gardens and it didnt disappoint! Ian and Anne were as welcoming as ever and our request for a ground floor room was noted and we enjoyed a lovely 3 night stay in the most comfortable king size bed.Despite freezing weather conditions the heating was quite enough and the wonderful breakfasts where worth getting up early for!
We will be returning here as soon as we can,and would recommend staying here to everyone.

Room Tip: They are all good!

Bootham Garden Guest is wonderful and excellent guest house to stay in, very friendly people, nice clean rooms and very well kept. York is a wonderful city and plenty to do there while staying, eating out is very good. Bootham Gardens is a short walk away from the centre. Will stay there again the next time in York.

I have been staying at Bootham Gardens for the past three years and there is a reason - it is fantastic and the best Guest House/ Hotel I have ever stayed in. Anne and Ian are excellent hosts (nothing is too much trouble) and the rooms are always spotlessly clean. Location wise it is very convenient for all of the city centre attractions (Minster etc) and for the station (10 minutes walk).

As for the breakfast, words cannot describe how good it is. The menu is varied (from a full English to Eggy Bread a la Heston Blumenthal) and all items are made using locally sourced and fairtrade ingredients. The bacon and black pudding are a particular highlight for me, but it is all excellent. In addition, there are lots of homemade (and very tasty!) jams to choose from as well as different breads/ cereals and fresh fruit. All in all it gives a great start to the day.

I would highly recommend staying at Bootham Gardens to anyone who is planning to visit York.

This B&B is lovely, clean and bright rooms, very welcoming owners and only a stone's throw from the city walls. And the breakfast was incredible - a huge selection, and the tastiest bacon I've ever had!

I am so glad that we stayed at this B&B, within good walking distance to the city centre of York, the room and facilities were excellent. Room was very clean, with king size bed and very good washing facilities. Team making facilities, a very good choice with the option of having additional herbal teas from the box in the breakfast room. Breakfast was excellent, a great variery of choice. Soya milk was provided with a choice of jams. My partner was particularly impressed with the specials menu and a great vegetarian breakfast. We shall enjoy returning again soon. Our host made us feel very welcome and to keep our bags for us on our departure day was definately the reason I have given this an excellent starr rating, as this freed up our morning to enjoy york without the restrictions of carrying all our bags to the shops and museums. Thank you very much for an enjoyable and memorable stay. We will be coming back again soon!!

Room Tip: Our room was secure, clean and spacious,
