This was our second visit to Bishops and we were delighted again to be staying in such lovely accommodation for my daughters graduation at York Minster. We had a family room to sleep three and a single room too. The rooms are tastefully decorated to a very high standard and spotlessly clean. Deborah is a delight to communicate with and... More

What a treat to stay somewhere other than the rectangular boxes of major chain hotels. A 4 poster bed. A leather sofa. Fabulous bathroom. Very quiet in the evening. The 10/15 minute easy stroll onto York past all the curio shops on Micklegate was a good way to walk the superb breakfast off. Yes! Superb breakfast. Real bacon, real sausage,... More

Cannot fault Bishops - room was excellent, service was friendly and very efficient. They catered very well for our breakfast requirements. Would highly recommend. A short walk away from the centre but really convenient for everything we wanted to do.

I booked a trip here for my parents 40th wedding anniversary, and yet again it was beautiful. They thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Including a bottle of fizz in their room and a card was not too much trouble, and they were even upgraded. Great breakfast, great location, great hosts!

This guest house was a really pleasant surprise. The welcome was warm and friendly. I stayed in a twin room which was spacious and had a modern en-suite facility. The décor was light and airy and everywhere was spotless. We had a change of large white fluffy towels every day and the room cleaned. Best of all - the breakfast,... More
