“Wonderful B and B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

Our group of 3 adults and four teens truly enjoyed our stay at the Bronte House. The location is ideal with just a short walk to town. Parking was available right out front and permits were provided. Mick and Mandy are terrific hosts and very accommodating.

'This was booked as a wedding gift for our honeymoon as. It is in the perfect place,5 mins walk and you are in the centre. The owners were very nice and offered advice on where we should go. They even left a bottle of plonk in our room to congratulate us. I will definitely go back especially on our anniversary'

'This was our second stay at Bronte Guest House and we enjoyed the experience every bit as much as the first time. We were made very welcome by the owners and once again the breakfast was excellent. The Parking Permit provided is an added bonus as it means you can park the car and easily walk into the centre ofYork.'

We always look forward to our stays at the Bronte. We have stayed with Mick and Mandy on numerous occasions and have never had cause for complaint. A lovely couple and staff who run a very clean, well maintained b and b with lovely food. There are a choice of rooms, all of various sizes of which we have stayed in four of them, over the years. Mick and Mandy are always very accomodating and will bend over backwards to help. Breakfast is a buffet style with a choice of cereal, yoghurt, fruit and juices. Tea, coffee and white or brown toast is also available. Mick and Mandy will also try to cater for other tastes too if booked in advance. Cooked breakfasts are traditionally british and beautifully cooked, as you would expect from a trained chef. Parking is not a problem as passes are provided. Access to the City centre is just a ten minute walk. We look forward to our next stay. Myself and my wife highly recommend a stay at the Bronte.

Great location a short walk (10 min) from city - tip go down Marygate road and thru the wonderful park to the city.. Permit parking right outside on a quiet road. Our room was on third floor up a few flights of narrow stairs. Spacious room, good bed and excellent ensuite. Quiet at night apart from creaky floorboards as other guests move about. Small tv and a couple of chairs. Breakfast excellent and served in a lovely front room. Host, Mick, was very helpful and gave some good tips as where to eat etc.

Room Tip: Third floor rooms may test the less mobile guests.

We stayed at the bronte for 2 nights in the family room, it was perfect having a large double room and an adjoining twin for our children. The breakfast was superb with an excellent choice. The bronte is perfectly positioned for the sights of york, being only a 5 to 10 minute walk. Would definitely book again!!!!

Bronte is an excellent home base for enjoying all that is York. It's about 15 minutes walking to the historic part of town. The location is quiet and safe and parking is right on the street in front of the B&B (with a permit supplied by Bronte). Mick is quite knowledgeable and is always available to share that knowledge. We stayed in the2nd floor room at the back but there is virtually no traffic so any room would be as quiet.

We would stay there again and heartily recommend Bronte to others.
