Midway House
Ranked #80 of 194 York B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 May 2009

Just returned from staying 3 nights at the Midway House and the first thing to say, is if you are in any doubt, don't be!!

The two owners, Ian and Annett(e?) were very welcoming and very helpful, not just in making you feel at home but also in giving some helpful tips about what to look at whilst in York and nearby.

The breakfasts were fulsome, with a good choice of cereals, and full or small English brekkies made to order and lovely as well. Add to that drinks of water, juice and tea/coffee brought to your breakfast table and you could not ask for a better way to start your day.

The rooms were lovely and clean and well maintained so all in all, me and the wife and my fourteen year old and ten year old had a really enjoyable experience.

One note of caution if you are any taller than me - 5 foot 10 and a bit!! We were in the top of the house and I certainly hit my head a bit as the roof sloped, so maybe you might want to bear that in mind when selecting a room.

Lovely place and if we return to York, we would definitely stay here once again.

Stayed at the Midway House in York for 3 nights in March'09. Ian and annette were excellent hosts throughout the stay and we were made to feel very welcome. The room we stayed in was spacious and the bathroom facilities were excellent. Each morning, after a lovely breakfast, we had a pleasant walk into the city centre along the riverside which brings out at the Clifford Tower. We Would certainly recommend the Midway House to anyone thinking of visiting York.

The rooms are very comfortable clean and well maintained.

Breakfast is very good and well presented and can be highly recommended.

There is a car park that we have always managed to get into even during a busy season.

The bathroom was small but was very well presented and had a modern thermostatic shower that worked perfectly.

Transport to the city is excellent with a bus stop almost opposite the front door and with a frequent service taking 10 minutes into the centre of the city. Much easier and cheaper than parking the car. On a nice day the alternative is a 20 minute walk along by the river which comes out near Cliffords Tower near the centre of the city.

The price can be considered similar to other local similar accommodation but the service is excellent.

We have to admit of multiple return visits to the Midway and expect to make many more.

I could not have chosen a nicer place to stay whilst in York. The room was cozy, comfortable and quiet. The service was outstanding- I was given a map and Ian highlighted where the bus stops were (I was away on business) and where I needed to go. There is plenty of parking and the hotel was easy to find. Breakfast was amazing, Ian and Annette asked what I would like the night before. I would definitely recommend this hotel for business or pleasure!

...From the moment we arrived for a 3 night stay both Annettee and Ian made us feel so welcome. Our room was comfortable, spotless and well thought out. The breakfast just perfect. Midway House is ideal for either using as a base to travel to outside areas or like us, utilise the secure car park and walk along the river taking you into York. We will certainly look to book agian and soon!

We are from the US, Texas matter of fact, but my wife is from this very village and is aware of the many other B&Bs but stays here while in York. The breakfasts are very good, and the hosts Ian and Annette make you feel very welcome. The Midway House is in the great location, close enough to walk in town, close to Post Office, on bus route, and close to river Ouse to York. My wife goes to visit her mother who is in a Residential Care Home and usually stays from two to three weeks at a time. When my wife comes by herself I don’t have to worry about her safety while she is out and about in this location. Hands down, this is the the best value for money in a B&B for you stay while in York.

With so many choices of B&B accomodations to stay in York City in the United Kingdom on offer, this guest house that we chose via the internet was like winning the lottery. Cleansiness, location, breakfast ( all diets catered for ) all without fault. Our hosts Ian and Annette were so friendly and helpful in all ways possible. Both had a good local knowledge of the City and recent events. Will return again.
We have visited York on other occasions and not having any cause to complain about our previous accomodations we feel that we should make a review about the Midway House. Thankyou to you both.
