Cannot speak highly enough of the Tower Guest House. Very welcoming, yummy breakfast, extremely clean room, comfortable bed, tastefully decorated, close to York city centre and run by lovely people. We will definitely return sometime in the future.

A well organised and run guest house that met all expectations. Rooms immaculate, well thought out and parking provided. Breakfast cooked to order and the owners were very friendly and had all of the information you may need for a visit to York at their fingertips.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and honestly it was amazing. We stayed in room 5 with the spa bath. The room was exquisite and had everything could ever want. This is on par with the Hilton as the best hotel we’ve stayed in.

What bus stops outside your hotel can l get it from York station
You can take the No 6 Bus which leaves from the Railway Station every 10 minutes or so. The bus stop is about 200 m to the left as you leave the station. Exit the bus at the stop after the York General Hospital. Alternatively, taxi fares are quite cheap, about GBP 6.00.
