My husband and I stayed with Ron and Nicole of Southlands Guest House for two nights. They were friendly and responsive to all questions, and overall very hospitable. We felt very welcome. They served a beautiful breakfast each morning. The rooms were comfortable. Each room was stocked with coffee, tea, chocolate, and cookies. It is a little bit away (20...

Have you ever been traveling and, exhausted by your passion for history, found a place that felt like home? This is it. I do not want to leave but Hadrian's wall and the Scottish Highlands await. Stay Here!

Another excellent stay at the best guest house in York! Rooms spotlessly clean with a super breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble and they went above and beyond the call of duty when we requested an earlier than usual time for breakfast before our 'Grand day out'. We cannot recommend this guest house highly enough and we will definitely be...

Stayed at Southlands for two nights May 3rd & 4th. Rooms were beautiful, cleanliness paramount. The breakfast was 1st class, especially the fresh fruit salad. Whenever in York our first stop will be Southlands where the service is fantastic. Thanks for your hospitality Ron & Nicole. Ann, Anne, Shirley, Pat ,Marion & Flo

We stayed for one night recently whilst visiting the theatre. The guest house is located within a quiet residential street within a 10 minutes stroll from the centre of York and there are also a selection of restaurants, bars and cafes nearby. Southlands has everything; welcoming, friendly owners, it is spotlessly clean and the breakfast was of a high quality....

Ron and Nicole were very welcoming and we were made to feel comfortable immediately. Our room on the first floor was very well presented with all amenities. We were interested in having a restaurant dinner. Nicole not only suggested a number of places, she made a booking for us at this lovely restaurant next to York Minster where a window...

Southlands House is a very comfortable and quiet b&b a short walk away from the(much busier) Shambles. The breakfast was exceptionally delicious, and the rooms are well-appointed. But the most special part of Southlands is the couple that runs it: Nicole and Ron were incredibly hospitable. We were caught in awful traffic on our way to York, and were considerably...

Stayed at Southlands for two days. Everything was excellent. We were made very welcome. It is in a good location just about fifteen minutes walk into the City. The parking was no problem, with spaces reserved outside. We enjoyed our stay, and will be returning.
