Off road free parking is a bonus in York. The breakfasts are exceptional, freshly cooked to order , generous portions and plenty of choice. I especially liked the variety... More

Only a short 10 minute walk from York Minster and other sights. The guesthouse had free off street parking which is a godsend in York, and the rooms were very comfortable. Breakfast was... More

This is a very nice B&B in an excellent location - about a 10-15 minute walk to the gates of the old city. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The breakfasts are superb with many choices. The owners are very friendly and helpful. There is also private parking. A great place to stay when visiting York.

The room was spotless, and cleaned everyday. The breakfast was delicious, all locally sourced produce and any cooked breakfast requests were taken! Cannot praise this guesthouse... More
