“best guest house we have been to”
Reviewed 2 July 2010

having looked through the york guide some years ago we noted FOSS BANK was highly recommended. On arriving at FOSS BANK we received a warm yorkshire welcome. the owners were extremley helpful giving us advise about york & places of interest. We have now stayed at this b & b for a number of years. The rooms are always to the highest standard. On sweet facilites are spotless & any beverage used in our room immediately replaced. Being close to the centre of york is an added bonuse. FOSS BANK is our first choice & we always visit when a room becomes available. WE WOULD NOT STAY AT ANY OTHER B & B. 5 STAR QUALITY THE BEST. CONGRATULATIONS.

This B&B was a real gem! The rooms are newly refurbished and very clean. Kevin is a very pleasant host and is very helpful with advice on York. Breakfast was great in a lovely setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a superbly located B&B at a good price.

Have stayed at the Foss Bank several times over the past 3 years, having found it recommended on TripAdvisor. It is excellent, clean, very well decorated and with a friendly helpful owner. Light airy rooms and a very pleasant breakfast room. Breakfast is vertually to your choice. It is within easy reach of York Minster and The Shambles, a mere 10 minute walk. Private parking in the rear of the B&B after a very easy route to it from the York Ring Road.

I have stayed at Foss Bank Guest House several times over the last few years. The guest house is perfectly situated - close enough to the city centre to be able to walk there within about 10 minutes, but far enough away to avoid the noise. The bedrooms are spacious and clean, and the beds very comfortable. I know that when I arrive at Foss Bank, I will receive a warm welcome, and excellent service throughout my stay. I would definitely recommend this guest house if you are planning a trip to York!

We have just spent a fantastic 2 nights at the Foss Bank in York. This really is competition for the major 4-5 star hotels in the city and in many ways it is better. Kevin our host was charming, nothing a problem, tea beautifully presented and on tap whenever required. The bedroom and breakfast room are really romantic and very tastefully decorated - and more inportantly you could eat your dinner off the floor. I have stay in 50+ hotels each year and this is the cleanest place I have ever been - very important and a real plus. You will not be disapointed at Foss Bank, arguably under priced at £33 per night - you are recieving £150 per night quality - long may it continue - we will be back very soon!! Best B+B in the UK.

We enjoyed two nights at this B&B; very nice room with beautiful high ceilings, convenient location just a few minutes walk outside old city wall, pleasant helpful host Kevin who directed us to some good quality eateries. Breakfast was the usual "Full English".

We were made very welcome by Kevin, with tea and biscuits in the lounge. Rooms, clean, comfortable and welcoming. Breakfast excellent with plenty of choices. Close to city centre for exploring.
