Lovely accomodation in an excellent location. Quiet area of York, and just a short 10-15 minute stroll into the centre. Lovely, clean accomodation. Debra is a lovely host. Very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Would definitely recommend.

I had a nice stay at Bowman's guesthouse. The room was very clean and it is very close to the old town. The owner was such a lovely friendly lady doing her best to make my stay pleasant. Totally worth the money.

After seeing the excellent reviews on here I booked this lovely b&b to coincide with the food festival. It's well worth all the wonderful reviews, Debra is a fantastic host, my room was lovely and quiet at the back of the house. Perfect nights sleep followed by a great breakfast in the morning! Have booked to return for the xmas markets in November, looking forward to it already 😊

Enjoyed a three nights stay in this traditional English 'B&B which is situated in a quiet area of York, just a ten to fifteen minutes walk to the centre, and all the attractions. The train station and adjacent railway museum, is just a ten minute stroll. My bedroom was roomy and comfortable with a very nice en suite shower room. The breakfast was amazing and filling, no need to eat again till the evening. Debra, the owner, with husband David, is the perfect hostess, who is both welcoming and friendly, and goes out of her way to make your stay a pleasurable one. I recommend this guesthouse to any visitor to York.
