I really enjoy Carole's hospitality - friendly and helpful. I hadn't been to York in many years and she helped remind me and inform me of all the great spots to see and what to do. There is a very helpful binder of information compiled on York in your room, I referred to it a lot for the few days I was there.
I walked everywhere. It's a 20 to 30 minute walk to the centre of York. Very easy to get there, Carole gave me two helpful maps.
The b&b is immaculate, my room was wonderful. I had the Violet room on the top floor. Double bed, en-suite, goodie tray with tea & coffee, digital alarm clock, nice flat screen tv. I was very happy here.
The Violet room in the back is very quiet, and I'd certainly request it for next time. Well, it was quiet until the neighbours with screaming children arrived. This is a house and there is no soundproofing of course. Nothing you can do, you're pretty much at the mercy of the consideration of others in a b&b. It's family friendly, that's great but bring your earplugs. I am glad I left the next day as the screaming and carrying on went on and on. It was like I was in their room.
I slept like a log for the first two nights as it's quiet but the third night was a wreck... but that's how it goes sometimes! So if there's no screaming kids, you're in for a treat.
Breakfast was great. I haven't eaten so much in ages! There is a great selection of breakfast types, English, Veggie, Mediterranean, Continental - a lovely choice, it's terrific. I must say, the fresh coffee was amazing too.
I highly recommend this lovely establishment! Carole absolutely is dedicated to your happiness during your stay.
