“Excellent - would definitely stay here again”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

We were a party of six ladies staying here last weekend. What a find - warm friendly welcome from both Louise and Mark. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Our three rooms were all very clean, light and airy with all the home comforts we needed and the beds were very comfortable We loved the added touch of the use of the fridge on the landing which was well stocked with fresh milk and bottles of water. We could also use it to put our wine in and the sandwiches we had bought for our return train journey home - little touches like this make a difference. As for the breakfast - delicious! A great choice of cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurts and preserves, as well as the most delicious cooked breakfast using good quality bacon and sausage.
The taxi company recommended to us by Louise and Mark was extremely efficient too. We used them at least 8 times and each time the price was between £7-£10 for a seven seater vehicle. Each time we rang them to pick us up from town we were never waiting more than 5 minutes for them to arrive.
We couldn't fault our stay here and I shall highly recommend it to anyone I now who may visit York.
Thanks for making us feel at home.

We have a young energetic family and we were made to feel very welcome right from the start. We were given loads of information and help with things to do and how to get there and the room was really clean and comfortable with lots of extra touches that made it special!

The breakfast was really good with lots of choices and it was very well situated near York Centre which is a great place to visit.

We would certainly recommend Blakeney House to others and will stay again when we next go to York

Lovely bed and breakfast situated on a main road but there was virtually any traffic noise in the front facing bedroom. Grounds are well maintained. Modern bathroom and immaculately clean. Quality bed linen. Friendly and helpful hosts. Breakfast served promptly using good quality ingredients and well cooked. Bus stop right outside so easy to get into York city centre.

Hi Jo and Ritchie

Thank you for your excellent and informative review I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Stockton Lane is a large residential street, but not a throughfare, so all the traffic is local and especially in the evening and during the night there is very little traffic and noice.

Have a lovely Christmas and we hope to see you again at Blakeney House.

Kind regards

Louise

I booked this for a nice weekend away but I wanted to stay somewhere quaint rather than just go for something cheap but Blakeney was good value for money, the beds were so nice, rooms a good size with en suite and the breakfasts were lovely. Louise the owner went out of her way to book us into the local pub for our evening meal which is what i wanted, that personal touch that you dont get from a big chain hotel. We had a perfect stay and would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in York. The local bus is just outside and only cost £2.00 for a single. The park and rides are very reasonable too £2.60 each on the bus and only 10 mins drive from the guest house only taking about 15 mins to get into York center.

We chose this B&B for a "siblings and their partners" weekend trip to York. We were not disappointed. The hosts were lovely , helpful and welcoming. The rooms (we had 4 doubles) were clean and suitably equipped. The breakfast is very good too. The decor is a bit dated and particularly the ensuite bathroom in our room was in need of a bit of renovation - but we learnt the current hosts took this B&B on just over a year ago so they'll have plenty of time for freshening it up. For me, the most important thing was that every room we saw was clean and looked after. Overall I would stay here again and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting York.

Hi Dan

It was lovely to have you and your partners family to stay with us at the weekend. I am pleased you had such a good time. The decor at Blakeney House is an on going project although possibly dated in some areas it is to a high standard. Since we have arrived at Blakeney we have decorated the hall and landing and exposed the edwardian tiles on the floor, it is light and airy and welcoming. We have completely refurbished one room and redecored the room you were in and the en-suite is the next project. In all the rooms we have made hugh improvements adding new bedding, throws, cushions, lamps, mirrors, curtains etc. Each room is cosy, welcoming and comfortable. I hope that if you come and stay with us again you will see even more improvement.

Many Thanks Louise
