Our room was two flights of stairs up to the third level to a front room facing west, the stairs were steep but didn't cause us any problems with luggage. We had trouble with the internet initially but Alan, the owner, was able remedy this for us although it was still very slow. We were able to choose from full...

Stayed here 2 nights. Owner very helpful. On arrival we were given advice on where to visit and also supplied with a parking ticket so we could park on the Street outside. The room was only small but very clean and the breakfast was excellent with a good choice and good quality sausage and Bacon. It was about a 15...

We stayed midweek to celebrate our wedding anniversary, having never been to York before. We were greeted warmly and were also given very clear directions to the city centre, this was a nice leisurely 10/15 minutes walk from the centre. The room was very clean, small (but this didn't bother us) with ensuite facilities. We had tea and coffee, including...

Very friendly owners who made us feel extremely welcome and gave us clear directions to the city centre. The room we stayed in on *very* short notice was extremely clean and tidy and had all of the facilities we could have really asked for from a B&B and the parking was not an issue despite it being a fairly busy...

We stayed in room 2 for two nights. It was the biggest, comfiest bed ever. The room was a good size, modern with a lovely en suite. Lovely touches like free slippers and bottles of water as well as the usual tea and coffee provided. Hair-dryer and bathroom toiletries also provided. The location was a quiet street about 10-15 minutes...

Stayed in the family room for 2 nights. The room and en suite were very clean and decorated to a high standard. One of the beds was uncomfortable and this was brought to the attention of the owners. The choice of breakfast was good and the English breakfast was delicious and not greasy. Parking was on the street with a...

I stayed for one night in a single room. The room was not big but in excellent condition and very quiet. The couple owning and running the place were helpful and friendly. The shower could have had a stronger water flow but never mind. Very good value overall.

Had a friendly welcome. We were in room 7 on the ground floor. Was apparently a deluxe double. Room nicely presented and clean although on the small side. Breakfast in the morning was a nice selection and enjoyable. Well placed for a couple of days exploring York. Nice and quite road within walking distance of town.
