Chelmsford Place Guest House
Ranked #24 of 194 York B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 April 2014

We stayed at the Chelmsford Place Guest House on March 22 and 23rd and were delighted with the experiences. We arrived late in the evening on the 22nd, having flown into London that morning. We had let the hosts know via email that we would be late and Steve had a light on for us and was quick to answer the door and check us in. Our room was beautiful and the shared bathroom was clean and just seconds down the hall. This was our first time staying at accommodations with shared bathrooms and we had been somewhat apprehensive about the experience, but those worries proved to be completely unfounded. There were even big, fluffy robes in the room for us to wear in the hallway. In the morning we were greeted with a delicious home cooked breakfast in a cheerful breakfast room and excellent advice on which sights to see during our stay in York. The Guest House is a short 10 minute walk from the town centre and we found it easy to find all of the sights on foot. Steve and Janine went above and beyond on our final morning in York, cooking us a hot breakfast even though we were due to leave for our train before breakfast was open. Our stay in York was absolutely perfect and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chelmsford Place to our friends and family.

We stayed with Steve and Janine in March, they made us very welcome and our room was lovely.
We will definitely stay there again. The breakfast was very good also.
We were surprised how close it was to the city centre.

Room Tip: We had a sneaky look in other rooms and they all looked good.

Reading the other reviews I'm unable to say any less. Clean and comfortable with a friendly professional feel to every aspect of our stay. Parking made easy and a short stroll into town.
A big thank you.

Room Tip: Had a room at the back ( room 5) and it was quiet

We have stayed here twice and will definitely return. Good hosts, lovely rooms and a lovely breakfast-with vegan options and fruit teas available. All in all a great place to stay.The nearby river walk makes walking into York centre easy and enjoyable, Mary and Alex Beard.

Room Tip: room 6 is small but a beautiful room for a short stay.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at Chelmsford Place for two nights and we had a fantastic stay. Staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful, beds are sooooo comfortable and the breakfast is delicious (especially the sausages!). Great location, v close to river and a nice short walk to town centre.

Had a lovely weekend stay – nice, comfortable room, and yummy breakfast with ample choice for us. Owners were very friendly and helpful with information. The close proximity of the B&B to the centre was great – easy to walk to / from. Also the availability of a car parking space was a great asset for us.
Thank you for a lovely stay.
