Midway House
Ranked #80 of 194 York B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 September 2013

We recently stayed for two nights in the Midway and really can't fault it! Ian and Annette were very friendly and helpful and the service and facilities were excellent. The room was clean, good size and nicely decorated. Shower was great! Breakfast was second to none - plenty to eat and was offered more or would adapt to suit you - nothing too much trouble. Twenty-ish minute walk into York either by the river or along the road if you want to stop at the pub!! All in all great stay and would highly recommend it.

From the moment you walk through the door you feel like you are a family friend who has visited many times before.We stayed here for 4 nights. Upon arrival Annette greeted us and gave us details of routes in to town walking & bus routes marking our map so we knew where we were and how to get back. Our room was spacious and very clean including the bathroom. The bus stop is pretty much opposite the Midway House and they run every ten minutes so you never have to wait long! Breakfast every morning was a delight (I'm not much of a breakfast person) but Gary was indulged with a lovely full english. However should you wish for something different you need only ask and it can be arranged for you. There is also a selection of fruits, cereals and yoghurt's to choose from! We didn't want to leave at the end of our stay after the first night we were already planning our next trip! You won't be disappointed by the Midway House and we can't wait to stay again! Thank you so much Annette & Ian for a brilliant weekend away! We hope to see you both again very soon! Hannah & Gary (P.S If you get the chocolate orange cookies in your room savour every bite!!)

Stayed at the Midway while attending ladies day at York races. Absolutely fell in love with the owners and place from the get go. Very welcoming and helpful. Out room was immaculate and so comfy while having everything we needed . Breakfast was very satisfying and nothing seemed too much trouble. Will be back next year.

Upon arriving for our 1 night stay we were greeted by a very friendly Annette who made us feel comfortable and at home instantly. The room was very spacious and had everything that we needed and was very fresh, clean and tidy. The shower was fantastic and all facilities were great. Annette was very happy to help with any help or queries we had and made our stay very pleasurable. The breakfast was delicious with a great choice of fruit and cereal and then a cooked breakfast, which I believe was cooked by Ian. The guest house is in a very good location and we would definitely stay again. Hoping to book for next year if they have the room! Many thanks Dawn and Mary.

Room Tip: The bottom room next to the office is a great room, very spacious and the shower is fab.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Our room was spacious and clean, and had everything we needed.
The location is ideal for walking into York, about 20 minutes either along the river or along the main road.
It rained one night, and there is a bus stop right outside, which was great. And a taxi back costs less than £5.
Annette was very helpful, giving us lots of advice and chatting to all the guests at breakfast time while still managing to get all the breakfasts on the table quickly.
The car park was great, we didn't need to use the car so it was good to know it was safely off the street.
We loved everything about Midway House, would recommend it to anyone and hope to visit again one day.
Thanks, Annette, for a lovely stay.

Stayed at this lovely b&b for two nights, and it was absolutely amazing! Ian and Annette who own it are very welcoming and friendly. Cleanliness is on extremely high level, rooms are very cozy. Breakfast cooked by Ian was super delicious. Location is brilliant as well - only 10 minute walk to city center. I will definitely stay at midway house again!

We had a great weekend in York!
Annette and Ian were very welcoming and friendly. They gave us a lot of interesting tips about what to visit in York.
The town center is in walking distance (about 10-15 mins). You can walk by the river, which is very nice.
We had a cooked English breakfast. It was delicious!!
The rooms are traditional, very nice, comfortable and clean. The en-suite bathroom, too!
We can highly recommend this guesthouse!
