“Excellent B&B”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Stayed Saturday and Sunday night in a family room (double). Steve and Janine gave us the warmest welcome and took care of us well. Very clean throughout. Delicious breakfast. Free parking permit with stay allowing you to leave the car directly outside the guest house and benefit from the beautiful ten minute walk into town down by the river as advised by Steve and Janine. Room was excellent with ensuite and towels changed daily. Tea and coffe facilites in the room which were also topped up daily. Will definately recommend this guest house to everyone. We loved our stay and whole experience of York and would like to say a huge thank you to Steve and Janine for having us and making our trip extremely enjoyable. Thanks again, Jamie & Nat.

Stayed in a family room, 3 adults, suited us just fine! Steve and Janine are charming hosts who took care of us very well! Beautiful breakfasts. Our special dietary needs we're looked after. Very thoughtful and kind. Clean and tidy! Hoping to return one day, and can recommend the Chelmsford Arms.

We stayed here Friday and Saturday night. Lovely warm welcome, helpful advice on York attractions. Comfortable room, with plenty of hot water (we had a bath in our en suite with hand held shower). Tea/coffee/towels refreshed daily. Superb breakfast. Free parking permit meant we could leave the car outside the guest house, and enjoy the ten minute walk along the riverside into the town. We found Steve, Janine and staff extremely friendly but never obtrusive. We will be making a return stay.

Highly recommended. Thank you. Dave and Ellie

Very comfortable guest house with a warm welcome from Janine and Steve. The decor was clean, neat and tasteful. Our room was en-suite and considering the size of the room the sink, toilet and shower had been fitted in unobtrusively and so that minimum room had been lost. The bed was comfortable and the furnishings were excellent. My only negative was that the room could have been a bit warmer but the weather was lousy!
Breakfast was excellent in the nice dining room.
Car parking was arranged at the front with a parking permit issued for the duration. Janine was very helpful with local knowledge etc. We would definitely return, especially since it is a short walk to the city centre.

Hi,

Many many thanks for your wonderful review and kind words, we are so pleased that you would recommend Chelmsford Place guest house. Its always lovely to hear that people have enjoyed their stay, as this then makes our job a pleasure.

Apologies if we didn't mention it at check in but the heating temp is set to 19.5 degrees so if it falls below this temperature you just need to turn the radiators on in the room (our girls turn them off when cleaning), but the next time you are here I will try to order the sun lol, we do hope the weather didn't spoil your visit to York.

We would love to see you both again in the future.

Take Care

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.
