“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

My partner booked an Easter weekend break here for my birthday and our anniversary....it was fantastic! The room was lovely (yellow room), breakfast was delicious with a nice variety on the menu and the service was impeccable. Blakeney House has a warm homely feel and Mark and Louise were great! They shared their local knowledge and were on hand to answer any questions. There are bus stops right outside too which take you direct to York centre. Overall we had a fantastic time and can't wait to visit again! We have recommended the hotel to many family and friends already. See you again soon guys! :-) xx Gem & Dave

My son (age 11) and I had a lovely break in York thanks to our hosts Mark and Louise. Lovely clean room with comfortable beds and hearty breakfast. Being able to leave the car at the B&B and walk into town (about 15min) was a real bonus.

Very friendly and lovely hosts. Would highly recommend.

Many thanks to Blakeney House for the lovely stay myself and my partner had here for the last weekend in March. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was comfortable. Really liked the choice of complimentary toiletries, they smelled lovely! The B+B is situated about 20 mins walk from the centre of york, we didn't mind the walk but buses and taxis available if it is a problem, we didn't use any so can't comment on that. It was nice to be a bit further out as it was quiet at night. Breakfast was really nice and filled us up ready for a long day walking around York! Only minor disappointment for us was that there was no black pudding.
York is a lovely city to visit and there is plenty to see and do, I would highly recommend Blakeney House as a base to explore it from.

Thank you Gemma for your complimentry review.

I'm sorry you missed black pudding and we do normally have some available. We did try it on the menu but we found that it wasn't very successful.

I pleased you like the toiletries, they look and smell very good,

Many Thanks Louise

Warm welcome, great breakfasts, nice room with a pleasant aspect. What more could you want?
Lovely light airy building, nicely decorated

Had simple scrambled egg on toast one morning. Really yummy. Full English cooked breakfast was great.

Mark and Louise, the owners, were very welcoming and very helpful. Mark cooks the breakfasts and Louise tends the tables.

We stayed here from Monday 7th April to Wednesday 9th April. We travelled to York for a short break. The welcome from Mark was really nice, he showed us around, the breakfast room and communal lounge, then upto our room. We had a large room at the front with a Queen size bed, two seater sofa and flat screen tv. We had a small en suite bathroom with an over bath shower. We had tea and coffee making facilities, however, Mark and Louise went beyond this, we had two slices of fresh homemade cake waiting for us, a small fridge on the small landing had more fresh milk and bottles of water. We had a fantastic breakfast both mornings, and Louise could not do enough for us, even remembering our breakfast choice from the day before despite there being other guests there also. The breakfast was fabulous, very tasty bacon and sausages, nothing was too much trouble, recommending places for an evening meal, going as far as printing out menus and maps. The buses ran on a regular basis, a taxi costs approximately £5.
We highly recommend this guesthouse, and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Front room or back room, makes no difference to noise quality, there isnt any noise, its very quiet.

We spent a very comfortable long weekend at Blakeney House. Our room was at the front but very quiet. It was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed, fresh milk was an added bonus. The breakfast was good and I especially appreciated the delicious fruit salad. Mark and Louise were excellent hosts with lots of information and even provided me with a hot water bottle for my bad back. It was an easy 25 min walk into the centre of York but there was also the option of catching the bus. Just a short walk away was The Walnut Tree pub which had a very good restaurant. Overall an excellent B & B when staying in York.
