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....

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.

Another great stay at Southlands. Second time at the B&B and again, couldn't fault it.

What a most enjoyable four day break we spent in York. Ron & Nicole made us most welcome in "Southlands" and we were most impressed by the standard of the guest house.
