Well, where to begin. I booked the Dairy after reading a lot of reviews that mentioned great staff and they weren't kidding. It was my wife's 50th birthday (sorry love) so I wanted somewhere with a personal touch and that's how the Dairy felt. The owner Mike treats you like a responsible adult which I really liked. He sent a...

We stayed at Dairy Guest House, 5-7 Dec 2016. We had the 4 Poster Bedroom advertised in booking.com so booked via app. You need to tell the guest house an approx time of arrival as there's an optional self check in between certain times and you'll need the code for door You'll also need to tell them you need parking...

Very nice, clean and friendly guest house. Parking is on road nearby with a visitors' card provided by Mike when you check in. Rooms vary in size - room 1 is a small double, whereas room 4 is spacious. Only downside for me was that the mattress in Room 4 was very firm, but this is very much a personal...

My wife and I decided to spend our second wedding anniversary in York and having read the reviews of this place, we chose to book a 2 night stay here. We booked via Booking.com and after, I emailed the owner to ask if he had any recommendations for restaurants (after explaining the trip was for our anniversary). I was a...

The Dairy is a great little B&B near downtown and an easy and inexpensive bus ride to the University of York. We were in York for a long weekend and stayed at the Dairy Guest House because our daughter recommend it. Mike is a great host. Definitely recommend it.

If you are looking for 4* hotel facilities at a realistic price then stay here. The most important part of any hotel is the bed, ours was perfect. The variety of breakfasts' were as good as you will find in 4* hotels - including homemade jam. The proprietor, Michael, was the perfect 'mine host' and would try to satisfy your...

Just back from a lovely mini break in York. Not been for a log while but this was the first B&B that a booking website gave us details for twin room & not far the central city attractions. We arrived just outside of morning check in but that was due to train times, & was give the door number to...

Fabulous! Home from home, very warm and comfortable, attention to detail from proprietor, lovely breakfast. Newly refurbished bathroom with toiletries and towels provided. Kettle, tea, coffee, biscuits and bottled water replenished daily. Ideally situated just off 'Bishy Road' with lovely shops and places to eat; ten mins walk from city centre. Better than any 'chain' hotel with the personal touch...
