Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

John T wrote a review Dec 2023

Our visit came at the end of a very busy few months and was exactly as described and perfectly designed to allow us to rest or wander! We had been a few times to York before but not had the chance to stay at this beautiful, (and very grand but still comfortable) guest house. Our hosts were exceptional; nothing was too much to ask. Everything from the marvelous bedding, beautiful towels, little amenities in the newly renovated bathroom, the personal touches in the sitting room and library, the fine china and glassware, the ambience, the décor, the gardens and surrounds, the cute farm animals and stone-walled quiet alcoves, artistic garden niches.... so many delights for our visit. We stayed for a couple of days but it felt like weeks of relaxation and magic. Hope Farm is located only minutes from the town centre, which in itself presented its own allure, from the piano and grand ballroom atmosphere present in the town hall to the numerous antique shops, cafes, galleries and quaint shopping options. Browsing along the footpaths, visiting the outdoor market, dropping into the local pubs and historic buildings was a truly delightful experience.

Brilliant stay. Lovely room with comfy bed. Nice and warm and quiet. Lovely touches like the candy bar and wines on offer. Close to town but far enough to be quiet. Fantastic freshly cooked breakfast too. A must do. Highly recommended. Hosts Jo and Mike were very welcoming and helpful. Great guest lounge to relax in in front of the fireplace.

Hope Farm was a perfect finale to our camper van adventure around Western Australia. After 2 weeks of camping in the Bush, with minimal facilities and very few showers, we arrived tired and badly in of a wash! Hope Farm did not disappoint. Very comfortable, beautifully appointed room, lovely hosts in Jo and Mike, and a delicious hearty breakfast. We departed clean and refreshed, ready to explore the Shire York! Many thanks to Jo and Mike from John and Alison

Thanks Josh and Allison. Lovely to host you both and clean you up! The 'new' bathrooms get a lot of lonely comments. Good sheets. Good towels. Clean bathrooms. Comfy bed. Delicious breakfast. That's the secret recipe. See you on your next visit. Mike and Jo

What a wonderful farm stay. The accommodation was excellent and the bathroom had been recently renovated. A very comfortable room with all mod cons. Our hosts Jo and Mike were very welcoming. We had a lovely stroll around the farm and met the animals. An inviting guest lounge is provided where we enjoyed a delicious cooked breakfast. We would highly recommend this venue and plan to return.

We planned a weekend with my wife's parents to return to York and revisit the town they had grown up in and raised their young family . We have stayed at Hope Farm before and knew this would guarantee an amazing stay that they would remember . From the minute we arrived Mike welcomed us in the driveway as before and directed us to the beautifully appointed and immaculate bedrooms . We had access to the lounge where we grabbed a drink , relaxed and told stories . Every thing we needed was available and Mike and Jo made sure that we were happy and comfortable . We had access to the lovely property with all of the the animals and were a 3 minute drive to town . My father in law and Mike shared stories of the town and nothing was too much trouble . Breakfast was incredible, just as we remembered from our previous trip and a coffee at 5. 30 am watching the sunrise from the front yard was first class . Mike and Jo we can't thank you enough for your time and making the weekend so memorable for our folks . Ray and Teresa We certainly will see you again soon ...

Thankyou so much for capturing Hope Farm so perfectly. This could be our new favourite review. I'll find out how to pop this one on our website. We love having these types of interactions and making sure everyone is relaxed and comfortable. We agree on that 5:30 coffee but don't always get the time to do it ourselves. See you next visit. Mike and Jo xx

Most enjoyable stay. Very attentive host. Garden was lovely and we loved the fragrance all around. Breakfast was delicious! One nice touch worth mentioning is that in the guest lounge there was port and sherry available for a night cap. One improvement would be to have some sort of night light because it is very dark in the bathroom/toilet at night.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hope Farm Guesthouse, the room was very comfortable and we enjoyed having direct access from our room to the lounge with its open fire. We enjoyed meeting Jo and Mike and appreciated their hospitality and the time they both took to chat with us. The breakfast was lovely with the farm fresh eggs and all the trimmings, it kept us going for hours. It was great to experience the feeling of being in the countryside even though we were still so close to the charming town of York. It was a pleasure to walk around the gardens and meet the cutest little horses we have ever seen. We would be delighted to return to stay at Hope Farm Guesthouse when we are next in York to enjoy Jo and Mike’s hospitality once again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hope Farm in York. We had a very cozy room with heating and electric blankets which was a luxury. The shower head is unbelievable! I could have stayed in there for an hour. The owners Mike & Jo are lovely. We were able to store our mountain bikes in a shed overnight and I was even offered use of a fridge to store my plant based milk. Hope Farm is a beautiful property with animals, a lounge area with tea and coffee available at all times, books and games and the location is stunning. We would definitely recommend bringing your bike to cruise around town; its the best way to see all the charms of York.
