Sat nav took us to a different area from the guest house, and when finding the guest house we were expecting a small room. However when checking into the room we were more than happy. The room was larger than we could have ever thought and the room decor was to a high modern standard. We were the youngest couple staying at the guest house at the time both being early 20's and we didn't feel out of place.

Breakfast was very good and the in-house jam also, everything came so quickly. The staff were all very nice and friendly and the whole experience was simple with no stress.

We had a spa treatment booked and drove to the spa and was going to park in York and look around. The traffic in York to get to the car park was terrible and the prices to, we decided to go back to the guest house, park up (permits available from the house) and get a bus in. However we ended up walking in and it only took 10mins. There are little shops all the way down the road you walk down to get into centre York, so its not a long, boring, tiring walk into York. It was raining all the time we were there and it wasn't hard (apart from not buying anything).

Whilst at York we went to the OXO's restaurant which I would more than recommended. Taxi picked us up from the guest house and dropped us back, both from the front door. Ideal location, we both said we would go back to the guest house if we were to come back to York in the future.

5* rating from us.


Only bad point was that we couldn't stay an extra night! :)

Room Tip: We choose the king room and if choosing it you will not be disappointed!

Crossways is only a 10 minute walk from the city centre so very handy. The proprietors can also give you a parking permit for your car adjacent to the B&B. The house is very nice, well decorated, furnished and with character. Our room at the back was quiet and a nice (urban) view. The breakfast was very good, although you need to inform the proprietors if you want it earlier than 0830. Service and "hospitality" was excellent throughout our stay. Overall the value for money was excellent as the quality B&B was so close to the city centre.

My husband and I stayed with Emma for the second time at the beginning of April.It was pure coincidence that we were given the same room that we had stayed in on our previous visit.Our room was lovely,breakfast was great (including Emmas homemade jams)and the walk into York just the right distance.A piece of home made cake awaited us on our arrival to be enjoyed with a cup of tea after a long journey.On the morning of our departure we found that our car had a puncture and Emma allowed us to use her telephone to call the breakdown company,let us stay in her kitchen and make a cup of tea and also suggested a place close by to get the puncture fixed.As before Emma had been an excellent host and we would highly recommend a stay at Crossways.

Very good overnight stay in York, beds were incredibly comfy and Breakfast was amazing. Would definitely stay again! Guest house is only a short walk from the station and the centre of the city and was perfect for us.

I thoroughly enjoyed my brief stay at the Crossways. The owner, Emma, was welcoming, friendly an professional.
The whole place was spotless and the room I stayed in was of a standard beyond what I expected.
Some lovely little personal touches such as cotton wool balls and shower gel dispensers showed that alot of thought has gone into the comfort and needs of the guests.
I can highly recommend this guesthouse and have already booked for another stay shortly.
