We always stay at Kevin's when we visit York, as the accommodation is beautifully decorated, very clean and very comfortable. Kevin is always friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for him. He does a really good breakfast, too! Having stayed at the Foss Bank Guest House many times since 2009, we wouldn't even think of staying anywhere...
