Booked last minute, very welcoming and accommodating. Room was large, clean and warm ideal base for York ten minute walk into town and own car park. Breakfast was relaxed, tasty and filling. We'd definitely come back.

People were lovely, room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was fantastic, the room was for three but only booked for two, we were a short walk from York, as across the road was a street that lead to the river took about 10 mins to walk into York.

This was a last minute booking, but we got lucky. Friars Rest, is a quaint, comfortable, friendly guesthouse, in walking distance of the city centre (8 mins approx). The welcome was lovely and the rooms are clean tidy and have everything you would expect. I will definitely be coming back again. Ps the breakfasts are very tasty!

Best thing - Breakfasts! Had to pay £3 per day for parking but was advised if booked direct with the guest house rather than through booking.com, this fee doesn't apply. Lovely room 2nd floor but big bedroom with plenty of space. Will be returning. Short walk to York City by river.

Great place to stay and the breakfast was brilliant. I real homely welcome after a bit of a nightmare train journey which was lovely. Only 10 minute walk from the city centre and a romantic city. Got engaged in room 5 and will be back year after year. It was great to meet Steve and we will definitely be back.

My partner and I have just left this morning (room 1). After staying in numerous hotels and B&Bs across the UK, this is the first one where I have not been forced to sleep on one measly pillow the thickness of a beer mat! Two lovely thick pillows...A small thing, but something that makes all the difference to a good...
