A five minute walk to York, the guest house has lovely large rooms. Tea, coffee making facilities in your room etc. Our room was spotless and was lovely and warm, just what you need when it's freezing cold outside. Our hosts were lovely, friendly and gave plenty of information. There was a choice of breakfast which was great. I would...

I stayed one night and wish I could have stayed more. The rooms have obviously been updated recently with modern, clean interiors and furniture. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Wifi was strong and easy to connect (and stay connected!) to. Owners were very helpful and kind. Free parking very useful. Lovely short walk along the water into York....

We enjoyed a really lovely, relaxed stay in this great B&B. Right from the start, we were warmly greeted and whilst registering, all was clearly explained regarding keys, breakfast, parking, etc. The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable and the breakfasts, tasty and filling, setting us up for the day, sightseeing and shopping. You would do well to book a...

Stayed for 1 night in room 2 and cannot emphasise enough how lovely it was. Hosts very helpful and made to feel at home. Room comfortable, immaculate and everything you need. Breakfast delicious, good produce and offered plenty of everything. Car parking provided which is brilliant in York and only 15 min walk to centre. Will Definitely be back.

We had 2 nights off peak. It was very convenient for the bus to town (just across the road) at £1/2 a trip. Alternatively, it's a 10 min walk. The room was clean and tidy and bathroom was good. The only down side is that breakfast is served from 8am till 9am. Rather early for people trying to relax. Check...
