“Perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2011

Another delightful stay at Mowbray House thanks to the friendly and helpful owners Carol and Phil. We extended our stay by two nights because of illness and it was truly a home away from home. Nothing was too much trouble for the delightful owners. The room was well sized for the three of us (all adults) and spotlessly clean. Breakfasts were amazing. Mowbray House will always be our first choice for accomodation in York.

This delightful B&B was recommended to us by the Tourist Information Board. It was the first time we had searched for a place to stay through them as it was very last minute and we were not disappointed with their recommendation.
The location was the first great thing that we noticed about the place and it just got better and better! Free off street parking was provided and the room was very spacious and sparkling clean.
Carol was a wonderful host, she made you feel part of the family!
The other guests staying there were also very nice and friendly and that made our stay extra special.
We hope to return to York in the near future and will certainly be checking the availability of Mowbray House before trying anywhere else.

Just a 5 minute walk into the centre of York, this is a great place to be based. We stopped off for two nights on the way back South from a week in Scotland. The owners couldn't have been more helpful - recommending sights, places to eat, etc. Myself and my partner are both vegetarian, and they did us a lovely veggie breakfast on both mornings. The room we stayed in was lovely - really comfortable, really nicely decorated - an all round good experience. Really made us feel at ease in the B&B. Would definitely stay there again.

Thank you, once again, Carol, Phil and family for making our Easter week-end so special. We keep going back every year and the family always makes us so welcome!!
The rooms have been redecorated yet again and kept spotlessly clean. The variety for breakfast is fantastic and plentiful. We are a 3 generation family who never tire of the sites in and around York and will continue to visit Mowbray House next year

Stayed at Mowbray House for at least the 4th time in as many years and as always Carol is the perfect host! Along with her husband phillip they were both very helpful at breakfast as to where the best Christmas shopping streets were. The bedroom was large and spacious. Excellent shower and strictly Non smoking! Looking forward to our next trip to York. What will it be next time?- maybe to see the beautiful sights of the town centre after all its only a 10 minute stroll down gillygate to the start of the Bar walls or maybe to the famous Knavesmire-home of York races. Thank you again for a great stay.

Having first arrived to York, a stranger to everything, I did not know that when my first B&B owner told me she could not extend our stay she would be doing be the greatest favor ever!

Upon her recommendation, my mother and I were received into a very warm family, which has truly become my family away from home now.

Mowbray House is far more than your regular B&B. It's a home with character and lots of warmth. The immaculately cleaned rooms were not decorated like your typical hotel room, but rather had a very homey feel to them. I can vouch that sleeping on the freshly laundered sheets counts as one of the best sleeps I had in my entire life!

Another added plus to this excellent accommodation is the fact that it's literally in heart of York. Less than 10 minutes walk from the town center with lots of amenities at the door stop.

No words would do justice to the warm welcome and help of the very kind owners. Suffice it to say, I never return to York without making it a priority to spend at least a few days at this wonderful B&B.
