I stayed at Bowman's for three nights this week whilst working early shifts at York hospital. The b&b could not have been in a better location for me. My tea and coffee supply was replenished each day which I definitely needed. A biscuit every day was a lovely touch. The mattress was comfortable and a new towel was given each...

Debra was so welcoming, kind, and helpful throughout our stay, giving us plenty of tips on what...

We stayed here for a week in April and found the accommodation to be cheerful, clean and comfortable and situated in a quiet location a short walk from York centre. We got a very warm and friendly welcome. A great choice for breakfast and the “full English” cooked by David is just that –...
