Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Return visit. Fabulous stay as before. Room very well appointed, with the very welcome addition of homemade cakes and cookies, fridge with fresh milk and a wide range of tea and coffee which were replenished daily. Tea/coffee, scones and cakes were available on arrival in guest lounge, very welcoming with a log fire. Breakfast options were excellent. Hosts are very pleasant, full of knowledge about local area. Booking highly recommended. Stuart and Elaine Harvey

We chose to stay at Westergate House during our visit to York, because of all the excellent reviews that it had received - we were certainly not disappointed. Westergate House was outstanding. The owners (Hilary & Paul) couldn't do enough to make our stay truly memorable. The rooms were first class - spacious, spotless, warm and quiet. Hilary kindly juggled her reservations to enable our family to have adjacent rooms. After a very comfortable night's sleep, the exquisite full English breakfast really set us up for a day of sight-seeing in York. We would thoroughly recommend Westergate House for anyone visiting York that are looking for a slightly out of the city location (5-6 miles from city centre). We will certainly be back again when we are next in the area.

Our recent stay at Westergate House York, was nothing short of outstanding. It was a special birthday treat for my wife and were welcomed by owner Hilary who was a delight to meet, and provided us with a welcome treat of tea and cakes in the longe. Our room was very spacious and comfortable with a large bathroom including a walk in power shower, all spotlessly clean with lovely garden views. The hotel which feels more like a delightful family home, with a beautiful lounge for use by guests, and very tastefully furnished throughout. The property is very close to all nearby attractions including the city of York. We met Paul, Hillaries husband who was also a delight to meet. The choice of breakfast that was served by Paul was outstanding, cooked to perfection. The owners were very attentive and helpful throughout our stay. They made our visit feel very special. We would have no hesitation in recommending Westergate House Hotel to anyone wishing to visit the area. And we will certainly be returning to this gem of a hotel. M. and E. Woods.

We enjoyed our stay here so much last year that we returned and were not disappointed. Hilary and Paul are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the Yorkshire Pudding and Parkin room and it was lovely, nicely decorated, with a walk in closet for bags and the nicest bathroom I have ever used in any B&B - it has a bath and a walk-in shower. Breakfast was excellent, I became addicted to scrambled eggs and bacon and there is plenty of other choices available. I could go on, just read my previous review from September 2022, but if you are going to the York area book a room at Westergate House, you will not be disappointed.

Loved this Bed and Breakfast! It is in a rural location with a regular bus to the city centre. The whole place was very clean. We were greeted on arrival with scones, shortbread and brownies in the guest lounge. Hilary and Paul were friendly and provided very helpful local information and our breakfasts were very good. Our room was lovely, with fresh milk and cakes each day. Would definitely stay there again!

We had the room - 4.Yorkshire Pudding and Parkin - Superior King. Quite spacious room with en-suite and all modern facilities. Very clean and tidy. We had the morning breakfast twice in a row and this was quite outstanding. The facility also came with free car parking on site and hosts, Hilary and Paul, were friendly and obliging.
