Chelmsford Place Guest House
Ranked #26 of 195 York B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Found Chelmsford place whilst browsing for somewhere to stay and from initial contact to leaving everything was spot on, Located a easy 10 mins walk max into the city centre along a pleasant river path its just what we were looking for and parking is free using a permit right outside. We arrived early to a great welcome and knowing we were too early to check in but permit was sorted car parked and bags left inside so we could go straight into town, returned much later and bags taken to room which we found to be a good size ( family room/ensuite), nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and everything you need, Well impressed ! Ensuite was great, I'm a big chap but was plenty big enough so no issues there, Slept really well (could have been all the walking) and could have stayed in bed late but breakfast was calling...And again Top service,Top food, Hosts cant do enough for you and happy to have a chat and should be proud that they have a great guest house that they enjoy running, Would highly recommend and hope to visit again.

lovely friendly guest house ,not too far from the city centre .i was made to feel very welcome in the house .
the bedroom was spotless ,plenty of tea/coffee/hot chocolate etc .
the bed was comfortable ,slept like a log .
lovely home cooked breakfast to start the day .
the only negative i could say ,was the ensuite was quite tiny ,it wouldnt suit a larger person
and the bath/shower towels could have done with being a bit bigger.

We stayed 3 nights in this Amazing Guest House! The Owners made us feel welcome right from the start. Steve and Janine are Wonderful People. We even met up with Steve in his local Pub and had a drink. The Guest House is a very short walk to the City Walls. I could not recommend this any Higher! Thank you again Steve and Janine.

Stayed one night and found everything I'd want from a B&B. Room at the top looking out the back (Room 2?). Delightful with beautiful and very large bathroom. Wifi, TV, great breakfast, friendly welcome, good location, parking space (in controlled parking zone).
The walls between the 2 rooms at the top are not totally soundproof but I heard nothing from the couple in the next room and just hope my snoring didn't disturb them.
If returning to York, I'd return without hesitation. Thanks.

Just got back from a 2 night stay atab, this lovely B&B. Was made to feel welcome from the moment we rang the bell. Janine was lovely told us were every thing was the we needed to know. Then when we got to our room it was clean, bright and the décor was modern.
The breakfast on both mornings was excellent, all locally sourced products and the staff doing the breakfast were very friendly, nothing was to much trouble.
Would recommend this place to anybody and will be using it again when we are over that way again.

Many thanks for your wonderful review and kind words, it was a pleasure to meet both yourself and your husband, and we are so pleased that you managed to get around the city ok, we hope that when you next return to York the Castle Museum will have a lift in so that disabled people will be able to access the first floor.

We booked last minute for a night in York during our mini road trip around England and had a fantastic night and a great breakfast. As we booked so late, we had a phone call asking when we would arrive so they could ensure the room was ready in time. On arrival we were greeted by Janine and Steve who were extremely helpful and friendly. I had never stayed in a traditional English B&B before and thoroughly enjoyed my first stay! The room was clean, nicely decorated and the bathroom was spacious with a nice bath. Steve gave us a map and explained the best routes into town (15 minute walk) and got given a great tip for a car park in the local school for £3 all day so we could check out and not worry about having to be back for our car. Breakfast was delicious and generous with a good variety of options. We would most definitely recommend this B&B to anyone looking to stay in York. Good value for money, great breakfast and friendly, efficient service - perfect!
