Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 29, 2013

First of all we will like to say that the host couple are the nicest people we have met.
Overall, the rooms were excellent; comfy, with great beds, the perfect space for all our luggage and even more.
The food was delicious, George and Maureen (the hosts), cook like angels besides they are the nicest people.
We really don't have much words to recommend Burswood B&B besides: MUST STAY THERE, IT IS PERFECT. If you are looking for a place to stay in York, you have found it, THIS IS THE PLACE.
We really hope they win Tripadvisor's excellence certificate this year too.

Stayed for three nights and couldn't have found a better B and B anywhere - everything was first class. George and Maureen were great hosts who made us feel so welcome. The breakfasts were superb with an excellent choice of fresh fruit followed by cereal and then a full cooked breakfast which set us up for the day.
Thank you both for making our stay so enjoyable - we would certainly recommend Burswood to anyone thinking of visiting York.

Can't recommend this lovely B&B enough. Fabulous room and fabulous breakfast. Well worth the money. George and Maureen are excellent hosts and can't do enough for their guests. Had a great stay in York.

We stayed for 2 nights at Burswood and really enjoyed ourselves. The room was lovely and clean with fresh flowers each day. Everything we needed was there for us including slippers and dressing gowns! The breakfast was delicious with a great choice for everyone. George and Maureen are very friendly.
The best place to stay if visiting York races as its opposite the stables and you can walk through to the course within 2 minutes.
We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed for two nights and cannot speak more highly of this property. The bed is so comfortable and the bathroom spotless. Most outstanding is the full English breakfast made to order and an extensive range of fresh fruit on offer. A special thanks to Maureen for tending to our every need.

We stayed at Burswood Guest House in May and had an extremely comfortable stay.
The room overlooked the garden and had fresh flowers on our window sill, robes and
slippers in the wardrobe, choice of tea bags and chocolates for us, which
made us feel very special and surpassed any guest house we have stayed in ....
and then there was the breakfast with so much choice!
We will be going back in November and taking family members with us!

First of all let me say the quality of service was impeccable delivered by George.

I have given a 4* for location as there are others closer but we enjoyed the pleasant 25 min walk into the centre.

Cooked Breakfast faultless and tailor made, fruit and cereals also avbl.

Lavender room spotless with A/C and power shower. This cannot be compared to a hotel with a gym , bar etc

But cleanliness, quality of rooms and service was 5*. Highly recommended.
Will return if ever back in York
