Bootham Gardens Guesthouse
Ranked #43 of 194 York B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I've just spent 2 nights at The Bootham Gardens Guesthouse meeting up with friends who have stayed many times previously. I can only say that I can see why they have been many times. Ian and Anne are excellent hosts, nothing was too much troubler. I was made to feel welcome from the minute I arrived, and the quality of the accommodation was more than I expected. The quality and choice of breakfast was would put most upmarket hotels to shame. All that and ideally situated in a quiet residential area but only a short walk to York Minister, shops ...and pubs. Very thoroughly recommended. Brian Lowe, Brentwood, Essex

Just returned from a two night break in York at Bootham Gardens Guesthouse, en route to The Lake District. Could not have been better - Ann and Ian are perfect hosts, making you feel at home from the moment you arrive.The room was perfect, the breakfasts the best we have had, but the cheerful, friendly ambience tops it off. Loved the tour of the garden. Looking forward to returning soon.

My family of three just spent two great nights at the Bootham Gardens Guesthouse, and we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Ian and Ann are excellent hosts, and the care they take in every detail of your experience shows through. Very friendly and personable, your hosts provide you with a ton of information upon arrival that makes navigating York simple for the first timer. They also provide you with resources, such as a computer with many York websites saved, so you can access any other information you may need during your stay. Ian and Ann are experts in the kitchen, and the breakfasts were superb (as all of the awards and personalized noted from famous chefs on the wall indicate). The breakfast choices are so many that it can be hard to decide which way to go (try the eggy bread). Ian is very proud of his garden, as he should be. It provides a peaceful place to sit when you want to get away from your travel companions, and also provides fruits and vegetables for the breakfast table. The guest house is a little bit of a walk from the city center, but that ensures a quiet night's sleep, and it is definitely not a problem to walk the short distance to the town wall. It's also a mere 6 pound cab fare to/from the train station. Overall, we enjoyed our stay a lot and highly recommend this B&B.

Just returned from our third stay at Bootham Gardens Guest House, thoroughly deserves all the maximum scores we could heap upon it. Superb and must be without a doubt THE place to stay in York. Thank you Ian,Ann and your staff for making our stay so enjoyable. We'll be back for a fourth time, hopefully very soon.

After arriving a little late on Sunday evening,our host(Ian)was waiting to greet us and made us feel very welcome from the start.He showed us to our room which was lovely.The flowers and champagne which I asked for(for my new wife) were waiting as this was our honeymoon and it was a lovely touch.Ian then directed us to a good place to eat(The Hole in the Wall)which was most acceptable.The next morning breakfast was very good and variable.Lots of home made jams and marmalades and from a choice of about 12 cooked breakfasts which were cooked to order to a very high standard.The visitors information in the lounge and the verbal advice from Ian was invaluable in finding our way around York.Not forgetting his lovely wife and friendly staff,they both made this a very enjoyable stay and will definitely return and would highly recommend this B and B.
