We recently had a fantastic stay at Foss Bank a very warm welcome - Kevin was extremely helpful and a wonderful cook - breakfasts were lovely, we stayed for 2 nights had a lovely comfortable bed and room everything was perfect. We will definately be back again we met our friends and spent 3 days enjoying the city sights the wonderful weather was an added bonus the early evening drinks in the garden were like being on holiday abroad! Thanks again for making our stay special. Happy 10th Anniversary keep doing what your doing im sure most of your guests return regularly. Jo & Tony Childs, Essex.

From the moment we arrived at Foss Bank Guest House we were made to feel extremely welcome by Kevin. That friendliness and helpful advice continued throughout our three day stay. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt a real sense of being in somebody's home rather than a guest house.
The room was comfortable and clean and the breakfast superb. The location of Foss Bank Guest House also makes it the perfect base for exploring the beautiful city of York and delightful countryside.
We would have no hesitation in returning - hopefully in the very near future.
Best wishes to both Kevin and his partner Val

We stayed two nights in this very pleasent, comfortable and hospitable B & B. Foss Bank is well located a short walk from the centre of York. We were travelling by car so the off street parking was a real bonus.

Our room was on the front of the property which meant that there was some traffic noise with the windows open but this was not intrusive. Kevin is an excellent host and was keen to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Leaning that I prefer green tea he had gone to the trouble of providing some for the second morning of our stay. Very comfortable bed and excellent breakfast - we would certainly stay here again.

After a long day exploring the beautiful city of York, all you could want is to return to a warm and comfortable guest house. Foss Bank provides all of this, along with clean and modern amenities, including Freeview equipped TVs.

The cooked breakfasts are delicious, and there is a wide variety of choice, including cereal, fruit, yoghurt, toast and preserves with tea, coffee and juice to drink.

Kevin always does his best to accommodate us, and is always friendly and helpful.

Overall, a definite recommendation, and a great night's sleep!

This was our first trip to York, and I noticed the glowing reviews for this B & B, so we decided to give it a try. All I can say is it's all true - spacious clean rooms (we stayed in room 2, which is really quiet), great breakfast, and Kevin is a lovely host - always there when you need him. We stayed 3 nights, and I only wish it had been longer.
You are on the 'right' side of York, as a lot of the tourist stuff is on this side - the Minster, the Shambles etc, and also close to plenty of restaurants and pubs, but it is only a 15 - 20 minute walk through to the other side of the city for the Castle Musuem etc.
We're already planning our return trip!

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.
