Luckily she managed to book us into Goldsmiths last minute.....it was lovely. At the risk of repeating what others have said, we had a great...

Very good location near centre of York (walk along river bank) and NRM (walk over river footbridge). Got a warm welcome on arrival, comfortable room with tea facilities on the first floor front. A good...

Went by train, however parking was available and offered if needed (useful), the location was perfect, less than 10 minutes from the train station and a lovely stroll (<10 mins)into York centre.

“I cannot comment on other rooms but the ones at the front would face the railway line so maybe a room elsewhere in the Guest House would be better. I have heard that room 5 is nice and spacious.”
