“A great place to stay”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

My family and I stayed here for a couple of nights whilst visiting my daughter. We all found the guesthouse to be very clean, with Julian the host, a very welcoming and friendly person. The only issue I had with the guesthouse was the showers. It is a pet hate of mine that lots of these b&bs do not have adequate shower facilities ie a shower that is strong enough to have a decent shower under. Both my wife and daughter who have long hair found it extremely difficult to be able to wash their hair. Otherwise the breakfast was good and the situation to York City was about a ten minute walk which was not too bad. Would I stay again - sort the showers out and I definitely would. To be fair I never raised the problems with the showers with Julian and I am quite sure he would have tried to sort something out.

Room Tip: The twin room at the back was very warm as the boiler is situated in there

This beautiful guest house was like a dream for us: excellent service, cosy, warm and clean room, wonderful breakfast (continental and full English breakfast in a beautiful dining area) and the location is also ideal (less than 10 minutes to walk to the Minster). Julian was so helpful and kind and we felt like being at home. Simply a great place to stay and we are hoping to come back soon!!

We had a lovely room, very clean and comfortable. The guest house is in a nice area, a little walk from the centre but not too bad. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this place.

We spent a night here whilst looking at wedding venues in York. Julian was extremely personable and made us feel very welcome. The room we stayed in was comfortable and the breakfast was very good the next day. Its location is excellent, it is only a short walk into York. Would stay again and would recommend it to any one.

Just returned today from an overnight stay in this guesthouse. Easy place to find after receiving directions from Julian (5 minutes from A19) and in a great location for York centre - only a 10 minute walk to the Minster and Shambles as other reviewers have said. Stayed in a family room with 1 double and 1 single bed - the room was small but nice and clean which is important to me. Ensuite shower room tiny but practical. Breakfasts lovely and Julian could not of been more helpful.

aaron is close to all attractions an easy 10 minute walk. Quiet location and easy parking you get a free permit from guest house.
Rooms clean and warm.
Breakfast nice and Julian is very accomodating and friendly.
we had booked 2 double rooms and the good standards applied to both.
Would stop here again when visiting York

Room Tip: If you enjoy a bath book the room with seperate bathroom
