We found this guest house by chance after looking at all the other hotel chains on tripadvisor. What a wonderful find. From the moment we parked (it has its own parking spaces) and the welcoming cup of tea and homemade cake, we had a super two night stay. The Guest House is literally on the tow path of the river Ouse (we had chosen, for an extra £5 per night, a front view so looked straight out onto the river) and it is only a few minutes walk across a lovely park to the York Minster and the centre of York. Also, by walking across the adjacent foot bridge the Railway Museum is also just a few minutes away.
We cannot fault the accommodation - it was clean, quiet (even though close to the railway) and the small attention to detail (a very good choice of breakfast - incl Eggs Benedict and a choice of teas etc) made this a most enjoyable stay.
Congratulations to Jane and Kingsley - the owners - for providing a good base for a great weekend. i can certainly recommend it.
