“Not the greatest”
Reviewed 11 October 2004

We paid top dollar for this B&B and expected a lot more than we received. I would have willingly vacuumed our room for the owners if given the chance. Dust in the corners, on the baseboards, etc. Small rooms with plumbing that is odd even by British standards. The breakfast was good, but there was a hair in my corn flakes.
Finally, they charged 4.5% on top of the bill because we paid by credit card! There are much nicer places to stay in York for the same price.

Oh boy!First of all, let me say that this Guest House is rated "4 stars".So when we arrived here, we were expecting a 4 star, or 3 star at worst. And what did we get??A 2 star!!!!!!!!!Absolutely rediculous!I don't really know where to begin, but to keep it short and simple: the rooms are small and horribly decorated (unless you like beds that look like they came from Hawaii 30 years ago- ie. straw beds that barely hold together. don't get me started on the mattresses). The rooms are very unclean- ie. a cm of dust on the windowsills..unvacuumed carpets?!. The bathroom was also horrible, very dirty and small. I almost wanted to take a shower with my shoes on (that is, if the water pressure was strong enough to actually get a stream going). To conclude, we assume that whoever rated this house a 4 star is blind. Really blind.We were very glad that our stay was only for one night, and we attempted to stay out as long as we could in the beautiful city of York in order to avoid our B&B. Can't say much about the hosts either. So in case you haven't gotten the point: we won't ever be staying there again, we will never recommend this hotel, and we hope whoever reviews this hotel is magically healed and can see what this B&B actually is!One tip, though: if you are out and about in the streets of York, make sure to take one of the free 2 tours given twice a day at 10am and 2pm. They are great! We also ate at a very nice Italian restaurant called Bari- located on one of the many streets that look as though the buildings might fall into each other, you will probably pass by it- called The Shambles. Great prices, great food, and excellent service by the true Italians that run the restaurant :)
