“Comfortable - but ran deposits without prior agreement”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2009

The room was comfortable and the relief manager running the place was very friendly.
However, as we made the booking late and over internet we had to use a late arrival time information. We got a reply asking us to change our travel plans or rely on some other B&B.
Also before our arrival the B&B had run a "deposit" on our credit card for one third of the stay, a first for me to happen without prior notice.

We stayed at Midway House over a York Races weekend as it was one of the few places that doesn't seem to hike their prices up too much because of the races. First time there and I don't think we will be looking to stay anywhere else in the future, we were very happy there. Lovely owners (Annette & Ian), nice bedroom & ensuite, good breakfasts etc. The B&B is ideally placed for a quiet stay, there is a bus-stop on the opposite side of the road, where most of the day there is a bus into York every 10 minutes and just a short walk back to the B&B from the bus-stop on the way back from York.
We are going back in October for another lovely weekend.

An excellent b&b just outside york town. Annette & Ian who own and run the guest house are very friendly and helpfull . Nothing is too much trouble for them. The guest house was nice and clean and the room was of a high standard. The breakfast was one of the best i've had. We stayed for 4 nights and it was a hugley enjoyable place to stay. The walk into york ( the city walls ) takes about 20-25 mins and thats why i have given the location 4/5. If i go back to york on a holiday again i would love to go back to and stay in this guest house again.

stayed at the guest house for a weekend.
On arrival to the guest house I was given a warm welcome by annette, who showed me to my room and gave me a detailed insight into what york had to offer. The guest house was full of leaflets with tourist information around York and surrounding areas. The room itself was standard - bed cupboard and anologue TV. The bedroom was not on-suite - but the bathroom was on the same floor and was only shared alongside one other room. there was a sink within the room. The only real problem I had with the room was the fact that there was a bit of dust (but I am generally sensitive to dust so prob wouldn't be a problem for most guests) everything else was clean and tidy.

Breakfast options at the hotel consisted of a full english (normal or vegetarian option) tea / coffee and a range of serials. Breakfast was limited to between 9am and 10am in the mornings and orders had to be made the night before.
The guest house was idealy located - it was within walking distance of the castle museum (20mins) and about 25mins to the bars / club area. check in can only be done at certain times so worth checking before booking.
The hotel did have car park spaces - this sometimes filled up but there was plenty of on the street parking. WiFi ws also provided although I never used it
The hotel was relatively expensive to those I usually stay at, but this was due to late booking and the fact that I didn't book directly with the guest house

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.
