Fantastic location, helpful owner and the room was lovely, nicely decorated we had a fab sleep would definitely recommend and would love to stay again. Although no availability to have breakfast it was not a problem as there's lots of places to eat in York, took us about 5 minutes to walk to York Minster it was perfect.

We stayed here in March of this year for our first visit to York. As always we chose our accommodation carefully using comments made on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Our room was spacious and very comfortable, the breakfast superb and our hosts very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate to recommend this guest...

The rooms were large and well kitted out, only down side was the sensitive smoke alarm which I managed to set off whilst drying my hair. breakfast was brilliant and cooked as you wanted,...

Stayed at Bootham at the beggining of the month, to celebrate an aniversary. B&B was lush, very clean and tidy, comfy beds, and everything you would need in a room. About a 10 minute walk from the centre, with plenty to do without taxis/buses. Breakfast was cooked to order, and nothing was a hassle for the owner Dean. He was...

We were welcomed like family. Adele, Jen and Dean do this RIGHT!! This BnB serves an amazing breakfast and has every kind of spread known to man for your toast. Walking distance to and from the train station and York. Loved being greeted every morning by Frank (the Buddha)

This was the ideal place to stay when visiting York. The Guesthouse was extremely well run, welcoming and comfortable. The breakfasts, freshly cooked were very good. Parking was fine. All this coupled with an easy walk into York meant you can leave your car for the duration. Stay no where else!

My friend and I stayed here for a weekend in August. This is a really lovely, friendly and relaxed B&B in a quiet residential street within easy walking distance of the Minster and the Shambles (10mins) - in fact close enough for us to pop back with our shopping on Saturday lunchtime before heading off to the Art Gallery. The...

Bootham Gardens is a quality B&B, located about 500m from the town proper, but a good location. It is a 10-15 min walk from the train station, but you can take a short cut through the gardens. Any B&B is obviously judged by its bed and breakfast.....both top quality. Be mindful that some rooms are upstairs, so be aware if...
