“Beware of the ghost!”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

My sister in law, her husband and 7 year old lad recently stayed here in room 1. Both nights they were frightened out of their wits. My sister in law heard scratching on the wall and felt somebody pull her hair. Even her very sceptical husband was scarred silly when both he and my sister in law felt a tightening of their sheets around them, as though somebody was physically sitting on their bed. I did send a very lovely email to the owners asking them if this had ever been reported before - only to receive a very saracastic response about it being the "most bizarre email he had ever received"... stay here if you like things that go bump in the night!!

Stayed April 2013, travelled with family

The Crescent Guest House was in a very central location, the rooms were warm and the person who greeted us was friendly, and he kindly let us check in after 9pm. Breakfast was good, however the dining room was quite cramped. The top floor room we stayed in was slightly smaller than expected from the photos, however I didn't get a chance to see the other rooms. I thought the room was quite expensive, but was comparative with the cost of other accommodation in York.

Didn't spot this guest house first time as it is just one standard door between 2 shops, so enter @ immefiatly up to 1st floor. Thr lady that greeted me was helpful, polite and pleasant walking me up to the room.
I was in Room 10 - top floor! Small and under thr eaves but once I settled in it had everything; ensuite (compact but neat & useable), flatscreen tv with loads of channels, kettle & even a case stand! it's about 5 mins walk from Gilly Gate so easy to find food snd get into town.
I had an excellent night's sleep and breakfast was good!
For the price (in York) this was excellent. The staff great and everything clean! I would stay again.

The owner greeted us with a parking permit for the street at the side of the guest house, the room was ready at ten in the morning which meant we could leave our bags and head into York a ten minute walk to the walled city. The room was not large but comfy with an ensuite, clean and tea and coffee on a tray. After a good nights sleep we had an extensive breakfast. I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms at front are noisy in the mornings

Clean and comfortable B&B, in a perfect location for exploring York's historic centre. Friendly welcome, with recommendation for local restaurants and pubs. Believe there are parking permits available, but we left the car in town. Great value.
