“Home from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2010

Great walk along the River into York Town Centre, just right to lose a few pounds after the fabulous hearty breakfast. Annette and Ian the hosts are lovely people who make you very welcome from start to finish and have great knowledge of York, and the best places to eat and visit. Rooms are spacious and spotless. We stayed for two nights, but will definately be returning in a few months time, as we didn't get to see and visit all we wanted too, as we run out of time. Great time had by all, looking forward to seeing Annette and Ian again as we felt very at ease in their company, Annette is the sensible one and Ian is the wacky one!!! Just kidding Ian.

We stayed for one night on a university open day. The proprietors are really friendly and helpful, the room was exceptionally clean and comfortable if a little dated. Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely stay again, only (very small) gripe is that it was a bit noisy on the front during the rush hour, and I found the outside lights unconducive to sleep, but that's a personal thing and if I stay again I shall ask for a room at the side or back.

A friend and I stayed at Midway House during a one night stopover in York (we were traveling back from Edinburgh to London).

We took a taxi from the York train station and found it with no problem - about a ten minute drive (outside of the center of the city, right next door to many bed and breakfasts).

We were greeted right away by Annette, who was very kind. She checked us in and showed us to our room and told us about all there is to do in York. She had lots of brochure and info on hand. And she explained how to get to the center of the city -- which is about a twenty minute walk (beautiful) along the river Ouse.

There were only two of us traveling ( college aged) and we booked the top attic room with twin beds - it was long and narrow with a sink in the room. One of the beds, the one I was sleeping in, was in the little area where the roof sloped (see picture) so it is a little difficult to maneuver (luckily I am short). There was no one sharing the bathroom with us at the time, which was very nice and just down the stairs. The room was a tiny bit musty and dated but still very cozy and nice.

York itself is lovely and worth the walk. We went to Jorvik Viking Center and the Shambles (the old butchers' street) and Yorkminister Cathedral - so beautiful. We had a decent meal at The Olive Tree (looking out at York Castle - Clifford's Tower) and then a delicious dessert at Rustique -- so good. We decided to walk back along the river right at dusk which was beautiful and there were other people walking, but a seemingly migrant man on a bike started following my friend and I until we were about to turn back to the street where Midway house was, so we ended up turning around and saying we had missed our turn so he wouldn't follow us. It was slightly disconcerting, as Annette had promised us it would be totally safe walking.

Other than that, our experience was lovely. Our traditional English breakfast by Annette was tasty and filling and she helped us get a cab back to the train.

Overall our experience at Midway House was totally positive and we would recommend a stay there to anyone! They are friendly and welcoming and run a great b&b.

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.
