Had 2 nights here and we enjoyed our stay. Parking is close at hand but not right next to the b&b. Beds are comfortable and tge bathroom in room 4 is huge. Very clean and tidy. Good breakfast with fantastic eggs, the yolk is orange. Overall a very nice guest house.

This little guest house is a gem of a find. Close to the city centre, with plenty of shops restaurants & bars nearby. The walk to the city centre is less than 15 minutes so perfect for avoiding the noise of the centre but not to far that it becomes a chore. The owner Mike was very friendly greeted us...

I really loved this guest house. It was very well organised and we received a friendly greeting as soon as we arrived, with our bags being carried to our room for us and plenty of valuable information about the local area. The room was homely with nice touches such as a hot water bottle and plenty of hot drinks to...

After reading good reviews on TA we decided to book The Dairy Guest House for our 2 night break. Very glad we did. Its in a good location - just 15-20 min walk to the sights, and even though it is on a main road - it was very quiet. We had room 3 and could not hear the traffic...

Mike and his partner (whose name I didn't catch) are the perfect hosts and their charming house makes this an ideal choice for a weekend break in York. I had the superior en-suite double room and everything was to the high standard I expected from reading other reviews.

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...
