“Brilliant inside and out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

This guest house was nicely decorated and cosy. The people were welcoming and as soon as we arrived they marked on a map the best places to visit and where to eat. The breakfast was really nice and the conservatory was bright and pleasant. They went out of their way to help us no matter what. It was only a short walk to the centre and quiet at night away from busy streets. If we could give it more than 5 stars we would. When they found out it was a special occasion they left a note and chocolates in our room which we thought was a lovely touch.
Richard and Jenny are what all hosts should be like. :) We would definitely stay here again. The price of the room was reasonable with a nice view. We were on the top floor which meant we had a nice view of York Minster.

Room Tip: Room 6 is a bit of a walk up stairs but nice view.

We stayed at The Warrens for 2 nights , staying in room 5, which was exceptionally spacious with a very large bed. Very clean hotel and good selection at breakfast to set you up for your day in the city.
The hotel is only a short walk to the city, close to all the museums, shops, tearooms, restaurants and bars. We will definitely be returning in the future.

This B&B is great value. A lovely building and friendly and efficient staff. Our room was huge - plenty of space to spread out. Breakfast in the lovely breakfast room was perfectly cooked to order. The only small quibble would be that the WiFi wasn't good in the room but was fine downstairs.

We stayed at The Warrens for 3 nights.

Jenny and Richard were very helpful and Norma the breakfast waitress was very attentive and friendly.

We would definitely use The Warrens again and try the boozy porridge next time!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 10, bright, comfortable and quiet.

Only started looking 2 weeks before our stay - 5 nights - and many places already booked. We chose Warrens partly due to location, and also fact that our car would be safely in their private car park (gates locked at night).Actually only used the car 1 day for trip to coast.

We had 1st floor back (2 singles) very clean, quiet & comfortable. Teamaking + hairdryer. Lovely and satisfying breakfast including fresh fruit, seeds,yoghurts, cereals, good choice of cooked breakafast incluidng veggie options. Nothing was too much trouble.Friendly professional owners with loads of local info, if asked.

Location just outside city walls (10 mins to city), and also 15 min walk max to Railway Museum (which was great). Easy from Warrens to drive in and out of York, rather than being inside city walls.

If you do ever drive in to city centre, be careful not to go over Lendal bridge and incur a charge! http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/10723767.Lendal_Bridge_fine_fears_for_visitors/ the day we drove to coast, we may have done this in error, following our sat nav. Just hope we don't get a fine in the post!

We would stay here again and recommend it wholeheartedly. Thanks for a great stay.

Room Tip: Room 3 first floor back, 2 singles, quiet, 1 step down to loo from shower room. Glad ot to have more...

Really enjoyed our stay at warrens, the staff were really helpful and friendly, the room was spotless and very comfortable! Would definitely come again, as it was only ten minutes from the train station and a fifteen minute walk right into the centre. Breakfast was great and there was plenty of choice , great value for money can't wait for our next visit!
