We had no choice other than to arrive later than 19.30hrs, but after a brief phone conversation, arrangements were made for us to arrive later. These arrangements were made in good humour and without rancour by the staff and that very much set the scene for the rest of our stay. We always found the staff to be both polite and helpful.
The guest house itself is two houses on a road of mainly Victorian terraces,from external appearance it felt very much like home, so, we weren't phased by narrow-ish roads and tight-ish parking. I drove down it in a van and parked easily, I'm surprised someone from across 'The Pond' had to brush against wing mirrors, perhaps the roads where they are from aren't so 'quaint'. Inside it is a typical B&B. Narrow staircases and compact rooms, which were spotless. The tea and coffee facilities were replenished daily and the plumbing just about coped. The en-suite was ultra-compact. I found that if I'd had the desire to, I could have sat on the lavatory and cleaned my teeth at the same time in the basin whilst washing my feet in the shower. I suggested this for my bathroom at home and received an old-fashioned look for my trouble.
The houses opposite are probably student lets.Whilst this caused us no particular problems most of the time, on the Saturday night of our stay, one chap had gotten himself dumped by his amour and had come out onto the street to remonstrate with her without disturbing his house-mates, unfortunately he swore so loudly and profoundly he disturbed everyone within 50yds. This kind of disturbance may well be a one off.
We that it took us ten minutes to get to York Minster by foot ( York is on Google Streetview).
