“Great B&B”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of July. Tom and Elaine were really friendly, the room clean and comfy, and the breakfast great! Also it was a 10/15min walk to the centre of York, so really easy to get in!
We stayed in the room with a shared shower, which was absolutely fine (I was a little worried before we arrived) - but we didnt have to wait for the shower at all, and it was only a very small inconvenience not having the shower in the room.
Would definitely recommend to others.
Thanks for a great stay Tom and Elaine!

I stayed just one night, and it was a real pleasure! It's at a short walk away from the city centre- and with a bus line stopping nearby, The owners are really nice and attentive. The rooms are clean, with plenty of space and full of light. And breakfast is really delicious! I keep the card in case I come back to York. 100% recommended!

Room Tip: Book in advance, especially during holidays.

Not sure what Tom and Elaine took on after accepting our booking for Three rooms this weekend! We arrived Friday morning with Six adults, a 5 year old, a 3 year old and a 3 month old baby. They allowed us to check in during the morning as we were attending a family wedding in the City on Friday afternoon. Mayhem getting everyone ready but Elaine just took it all in her stride!

The rooms were clean and tidy and a fan in each room was welcome which helped to cool the rooms as it was an extremely hot weekend. Breakfast also freshly cooked to order and very good.

Thanks Elaine and Tom for your understanding, particularly in allowing us to check in very early. It was a gesture few hotels would allow, well done.

Warmly welcomed into York and provided with excellent local knowledge from host (Elaine). Terrific location as only15 mins walk from Yorkminster. Room was very clean and fresh. Breakfast was delicious, and Elaine was very attentive, considerate and friendly. Good recommendation for local restaurant - Jaipur Spice (within walking distance). Stayed 3 nights this time, and would stay there again when visiting York.

Only stayed one night for York races. The room was very clean and the bed comfy. Good location, only being a 15 min walk to the centre of York. Good quality breakfast with nice bacon. Hosts were friendly and informative without being overbearing.

Room Tip: Was in room 6. A little small but fine for a weekend. Plenty of light

A fantastic B&B for the price. The rooms and bathroom were rather small, but everything was clean and fresh, the landlady was lovely, and breakfast was delicious. Not to mention private parking, flat screen TV, tea making facilities and excellent local knowledge from the landlady all within 15 minute walk from York Minster.

We stayed here during our Way of the Roses cycle tour (coast to coast and back again). The landlady was extremely helpful and friendly.
There was a secure lock up for our bikes which was essential to us.
The breakfast was good and so was the recommendation for a local restaurant (Jaipur Spice).
A definite recommend for anyone cycling through!
