Booked at the Friars Rest for a long weekend away after searching many places on the Internet and am I glad we chose this guest house..!!
From the welcome received when we arrived to the point of checking out, we were made to feel like family rather than guests, nothing was too much trouble for Phil and his staff.
Phil even carried ours bags up to the room while I parked the car in the hotel's private car park a minute's walk away, there is parking on the road outside the hotel but it is by arrangement with the hotel and by council permit which Phil advised us is vital to avoid a ticket..!!
The room was well furnished and comfortable, the en-suite was clean and spacious and the breakfasts were first class..!! We didn't eat lunch while we were there as we didn't need to with having such a good breakfast..
It was a lovely 10 minute walk into the city centre along the Millenium River Walk with all the attractions that York has to offer, Phil even recommended a couple of places to look at while we were there.
This was a gem of a find and we would happily recommend the Friars Rest to anyone, it's a credit to Phil and his excellent staff. We will be back to York and we will definitely be staying there again.
