“Three Hungry Grumpy Men!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Compared to other B&B’s visited this was a disappointing experience. Was told to ring a week in advance of trip (three cyclists, two day bike ride) for evening meal on doing so was told they no longer served evening meals and would not honour email confirmation of said meal. The local pub was suggested as an alternative however on arrival this venue also did not serve hot food. Local Take-Aways did not provide a delivery service. Last resort was the corner shop and a packed lunch in the room! Next morning break-fast was less than disappointing, scrambled eggs were under cooked! Room smelt damp. Wouldn’t recommend.

A little bit concerned after reading some of the reviews and on our arrival our rooms were freezing cold.In all fairness we arrived just after 11am and rooms were still being prepared for guests. When we returned the rooms were nice and warm and cosy as well as the bathroom. Our bathroom was being refurbished, so plans must be in hand to do similar work on the rest of the rooms. Breakfast is the best we have ever had in a bed and breakfast,plenty of choice and hearty portions, sets you up for the rest of the day. All in all good value for money and just a five minute drive to the Park and Ride into the city centre.

This is the fifth time we've stayed here over a period of seven years. Under both ownerships, we have been well looked after and very comfortable. The accommodation is clean and in the process of being refurbished.
The people running the place are very pleasant and make you feel like one of the family, without intruding on your stay.
Other guests there felt the same.

We stayed here on our 2nd night cycling Way of the Roses C2C. Warm welcome from the owners, who were extremely helpful. The room was in converted outbuildings and was very pleasant with french windows opening onto a small patio with table and 2 chairs, overlooking a very pretty gargen which was lovely. The bedroom was quite small but adequate with a comfortable bed, with an en-suite shower room. Both were immaculately clean, but the bathroom did show a few signs of damp/condensation problems but not enough to worry us in any way. Our bikes were locked securely in the conservatory overnight. Breakfast was very good. We would use this B&B again.

We have done several trips to York to visit daughter at Uni. We've done smart hotels and b&bs and this really suited us best. Very reasonably priced, very friendly, excellent service. Ignore previous comments in February - our room was clean and warm - there were lovely toiletries. The breakfast was probably the best we have had - plenty of choice and great freshly cooked bacon, eggs, sausage etc.
