Extremely friendly, helpful staff. Great breakfast. Top room was small, but this would not stop me returning in another room. Lovely walk along the river into the city.

We had a short, but lovely stay. As we had to rush for our ferry, we were not able to try the breakfast.

Pros: A bonus having parking without permits. Lovely having a local giving history and recommendations. Regular bus service into and out of the city.
Cons: A small issue, another pair of pillows would be appreciated and matching towel sets would complete the very good standard.
Location: Good location for the city with good local walks. Traffic can be busy on the main road at times. Plenty of places to visit within walking distance.
Very friendly couple running a lovely house. Great breakfast and lovely to have such local knowledge and history. Very clean and comfortable room. Lovely walks down the river into the city centre over the millennium bridge with stunning views of the city. The Rowntree park is worth a visit with listed gates. All the attractions within the city are available either to walk into or catch the local bus service with a bus stop just across the road.

Pros: Clean, friendly, and handy for the city.
Location: Not far from city with close access to buses and a regular service to both city and the designer outlet. Within 30 minutes walk of the racecourse.
We received a very warm welcome. The room was adequate for our needs. A hearty breakfast in the morning. They provided a lot of information about the city. The car park was adequate for all the guests and the situation was close to the city with bus stops and a regular service for people wishing to leave their cars behind. Will definitely use again.

Location: I caught a bus across the road which took 10 minutes to reach the town centre. Very convenient.
Ian and Annette were very friendly, helpful and accommodating . My room was clean and warm with a comfortable bed. The shower was clean and very easy to use, with plenty of hot water. I chose not to eat due to a special diet, but the breakfast looked and smelled lovely! I was attending the University which charges £6 per day for parking. Instead, I followed advice and found a very pleasant walk on a footpath through a common which took 35 minutes each way. I would definitely recommend this place to stay.

Pros: It's just a no frills basic b and b which you find in the U/K Remember you don't get all the facilities of a hotel.
Cons: A bar and evening meal would be an improvement
Location: Located on a very busy road, the A19 but the bedrooms at the back are quiet. Plenty of buses into York. Pubs and York attractions are easy to visit
On my check in I was told that I should not have made a booking using Expedia. As they charge the hotel too much and take a long time to pay the hotel. If this is so why does the hotel use Expedia in the first place? After all Ebay and Amazon don't sell for free. This made me feel like a naughty boy by using Expedia, but I do all my booking with Expedia and find them excellent. If they don't like Expedia why use them? If you book direct on the hotel website and use your credit card you will be charged 3% extra. Martin Lewis tells me that hotels should only charge you what the bank charges them. It would have cost me over £7 extra. If you check the ......Consumer Rights (payment surcharges) Regulations 2012 this amount is considered too much. Remember you cannot check in between 1400 and 1600, as it's siesta time in Yorkshire

Annette was fantastic and we felt right at home. A good place to stay if you are attending a conference at the university. The city is also accessible via a lovely walk along the river.
