Stayed at this B&B for my recent stay in York. I chose it because of its location to York Minster and other central attractions in the town. I certainly wasn't disappointed!!! The location is absolutely brilliant - literally around the corner from the Minster, the shambles and other attractions are within very easy walking distance - the york castle museum, cliffords tower etc.
After check in (at the restaurant) - a walk up a couple of flights of stairs to my room. No lift - but this is a very old building! Staff were very friendly and helpful (even helping me with my luggage up those stairs...thank you!) throughout my entire stay - especially a young girl (whose name i sadly can't remember) who helped me enquire about a tour and used her iphone! Breakfast was wonderful each morning (a few choices - i had the english breakfast one morning, croissants on another and eggs on toast on another..haha). The restaurant staff were lovely - the place was clean and had many choices on the menu (which guests staying at the hotel get 15% off!)...
The room was lovely - large double bed, wardrobe (which i didn't use), TV, tea/coffee making facilities and an ensuite. The one thing it didn't have was a telephone - which isn't a make or break item but it would have been handy especially in emergency situations. My room did have a small view of the Minster too...:)
Otherwise all i could stay is that if and when I am back in York, I will be staying at this lovely little B&B right in the centre of the lovely city of York!!!!
