We totally enjoyed our stay at York House. A family run B&B run with that rare degree of care and generosity so hard to find. Would thoroughly recommend. Great location and service and a full English breakfast to enjoy. Try the sausages, they were the best we encountered in our travels.

Room Tip: Any room would be great.

Many thanks for your kind and thoughtful review. We are a family run operation assisted by a very good and able staff team, we all try to make our guests feel most welcome whilst on their travels. Glad you enjoyed the sausages, will let our butcher know! All rooms, including en suite rooms, are individual in shape, size and furnishings and content, though all provide the same facilities to make each guests stay as comfortable as possible. Once again many thanks and we hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable 3 nights in York staying at York House. Only a 10 minute walk to the old city and the sights. Free off street parking. Good size room with a very comfortable bed. Very good bathroom and an excellent shower. The full English breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day. Good fast wi-fi enabled us to keep in touch with family and friends. The staff were very friendly and helpful - every one of them. Chapeau from a of very satisfied couple from Melbourne.

I booked a 3 night stay for my mother and myself at York House. Our twin room was lovely, clean, quiet and had everything we needed, the choice of refreshments in the room was great (coffee, decaff coffee, tea, herbal teas, Ovaltine, Horlicks, etc) there were even sweeteners supplied. The en suite shower room was clean and functional with toiletries supplied, big fluffy towels and 2 nice fluffy bathrobes.
The number 9 bus stops right outside and in 5 minutes you are in York centre. We walked most days and this only takes 15 minutes, and is a pleasant walk.
York House is a short taxi ride from the station and near to all the main attractions (York Museum, Castle Museum, York Minster, York Dungeon, Botanical Gardens, Railway Museum, etc).
David, Katherine and all the staff are friendly and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed for a great stay,
Breakfast is delicious. Helping ourselves to cereal, fruit, yoghurt and coffee, then either a full English breakfast, veggie breakfast, boiled eggs, kippers or croissants. A good start to the day, even the eggs are happy! (see photo).
I would like to thank David, Katherine and the staff for a lovely stay at a lovely B&B.
I would highly recommend York House to anyone planning a stay in York.

Room Tip: The twin room (number 3) is at the back of the property on the ground floor, very quiet and comforta...

Many thanks to the friendly owners of York House for making us feel so welcome last weekend.
The house is a quaint mix of traditional and modern (loved the power shower -it made us giggle!)
The room (4) was very quiet and the bed very very comfy!
There's a bus stop right outside but we didn't need it but instead had a leisurely walk into York centre taking about 15 minutes (via Monkgate I think).
Can't think of anything negative to say at all. I'd definately go again and will recommend to my friends.
Thanks again!

Had to stop in York for one night. Never been there before looked on-line and found this place at my kind of price. I would say its less than 1000 yards from the town walls and the walk though on a busy road not unpleasant. It is a B&B and not a boutique hotel. Right next door is a pleasant unattached pub, which while I was there was very quiet, but an easy place to spend some time. The rooms are what I expected no hidden suprises and the owners try really hard to be helpful. Let them know if you have a car and they will keep you a free parking place there if they can. Breakfast was absolutely fine, cooked to order and a plenty of options. I can think of no reason why anyone would find cause to complain unless they expected 5 star accomodation at 2 star prices.

Room Tip: I stayed in a single which was exactly that.

Thank you for your kind and honest review. We are a small bed and breakfast and do not promote ourselves as a boutique hotel and agree that we do what it says on the tin (and in the adverts!). We do offer decent rooms (4 star rating) at budget prices - as advertised - and the single room is an economy room for those who travel on a budget and is charged accordingly, even though it has all the same facilities as other rooms.

We are so pleased that the room and the facilities met your requirements and expectations and should you need to stay in York again we would be pleased to accommodate you. You could try single occupancy of a double room – again at very generous rates.

I would like to than David, his wife and staff for our wonderful stay, we were very happy with the room and location, just a short walk to the city centre and the wonderful attractions within the city walls. The decor is very nice with a wonderful sun room for breakfast which was also very nice with generous servings. All in all highly recommended.
