We loved it! George and Maureen were perfect hosts and everything was above our expectations.
Lovely large comfortable clean room. The Orchid room .
Great selection of fresh fruit, yoghurt and cereals for breakfast plus an equally good choice for a perfectly cooked one.
We found the location ideal for our needs. We were able to walk into the centre of York in about 45 minutes.
There is a very good bus service close by but we didn't have to use it.
Good parking and free WiFi were an added bonus.
Just cannot fault the experience at Burswood and thank you George and Maureen for making our stay so enjoyable

The best thing about Burswood is George himself he makes you feel like one of his family. The room was excellent, breakfast was even better. Would recommend Burswood to anybody and if we are back in York again we would definitely stay there again.

We arrived in the afternoon and was greeted by our host George and shown our room which was well above our expectations, the tastefull decor and five star fittings and a very comfy large double bed.
The next morning was also a five star breakfast and the selection on offer toast,cerials, tea or ground coffee, and a perfectly cooked full English breakfast
Can only very strongly recommend a stay well worth the price and the handiness for the city of York. Once again thank you for a perfect nights stay and making us feel welcome John and Christine

I have just returned from a 4 night stay at Burswood Guesthouse and myself and my partner are already missing it! What a fantastic place to stay.

Upon arrival, we were upgraded without extra charge into the beautiful Orchid Room. It was well furnished with a huge, comfortable bed, modern and spacious bathroom and the all-important tea and coffee making facilities, complete with mini-fridge. It was a real luxurious haven after a long day exploring York.

Burswood is more than just well-presented rooms. George and Maureen, the owners, are paragons of excellent service and friendliness. They made our stay extra special and were always on hand for useful advice or just a nice chat! The conservatory breakfasts were just phenomenal, with fresh fruit and cereal or George's made to order cooked breakfast. We were never left asking for anything with George and Maureen always checking to make sure all was well.

The guest house truly made our stay in York special. I would recommend it highly and would definitely return!

Burswood Guest House is about a mile and a half from the train station, and therefore a nice walk into town or a quick cab ride. It is decorated in such a fun, welcoming way with silk flowers and twinkly lights - combined with the friendliness of the hosts, you can't help but feel welcome. Our room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was great - fresh fruit and eggs to order, along with local specialties. Burswood Guest House is clean, comfortable and affordable, and the hosts could not be more lovely! We won't forget our stay here.

It's difficult to add to the previous reviews on here. We were looking for a b&b in York for a weekend stay and came across Burswood Guest House. It is very rare that there are no poor reviews but having stayed there I can see why. From the moment we arrived and met George the whole stay was faultless. The breakfasts are amazing and the location is perfect. The best compliment I can give is that I am a big Marriott fan and often stay in their hotels around the country and there is one just down the road from Burswood Guest House, but given the choice if I were to visit York again I would opt for this place every time. Book it....you won't be disappointed!
