A perfect little house within walking distance of all the main attractions York has to offer. Highly recommend.

“Excellent location”
Reviewed 19 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A very pleasant home away from home. All the mod cons with a flat 10/15 minute walk into the city centre. We couldn't enjoy the patio garden as much as we would have liked because of the weather but a great view over the canal and tow path.
I would suggest clear instructions about how to get to the centre because we spent some time looking for a through way onto the canal expecting to be able to walk into the city centre. This cannot be done but there are short cuts which we found eventually.
I would heartily recommend this property to those who want to enjoy the delights of York.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at riversmead. Thank you for bring to our attention about the tow path we shall add this to the information folder shortly about going threw the hotel car park to the back of the hotel where there is a gate giving access to the tow path and to the river. York is full of short cuts to many to mention part of been a old city. Thank you once again for your comments

“Peaceful, clean, and exceeded expectations!”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Our family of four stayed here for two weeks. Good location; it was walking distance to the sites of York. Very quiet with a nice view of the river. TV and Wi-Fi were easy to use. It had a nice outdoor seating area with a grill and a well-equipped kitchen. Spacious, perfectly clean, and owners who communicate well and are very fair.
