My colleague and I stayed here for four nights as we were doing a course in the University of York. Situated about a 25 minute walk from Alcuin College in the University (although we were subsequently there was a shorter route through a field) and a stroll from the city (although the bus goes very frequently from right across the road.
This is a very quaint B&B with a very pleasant and helpful owner, she was on hand with all sorts of information whenever we needed it. It was extremely warm which was great as we visited at a particularly cold time of the year. Our room had a large en suite with a bath and the room was extremely well dressed.
The only fault we found was with the "twin room" we had booked. Our room consisted of a King size bed and a not very comfortable looking metal framed couch/bed. We hadn't anticipated that one of us would have to sleep in a less than comfortable looking bed so we tossed a coin for it, unfortunately, I lost. It was quite a short single "bed", I'm not particularly tall but even I found it short. The mattress was extremely springy, to the point of digging into my side, and I didn't manage to sleep at all on the first two nights. On the third night, my colleague graciously offered me the other half of the King sized bed and I eventually got a good nights sleep. There was no comparison between the quality of the two beds so it might be worth noting if booking a twin room. When you are splitting a bill, you expect that both occupants will get the same level of comfort.
All in all, a very enjoyable stay though.
