I would rate this Good, but there isn't a choice between Average and Very Good.
Nice, clean B & B, with a pretty sitting area on the patio in back.
Our group of 4 related girls was split between two rooms, one on the main floor, and one on the top floor. The girls in their 20's took the room on the top floor. The rooms were compact, but comfortable. The bathroom was very small, but doable. The sink and mirror were in the room with the beds, which worked nicely. Packages of tea with a hot pot, cookies, and wrapped cake were in the room for us. Instead of the hot breakfast, I had a fresh croissant and hot tea (no scones available). Yogurt was also available, but only fruit flavored. When I mentioned I only eat vanilla yogurt, I was surprised the next morning when she said she got one for me!
Unfortunately, the wifi didn't work in our first floor room, but it worked fine in the dining room, and in the girls' room upstairs. There is a computer in the lower level lounge available, too.
The Hazelwood's location is convenient to town, so when we arrived by train we walked several blocks with our rolling bags to the B&B, and checked into our rooms. After that we walked a couple of blocks to town for an afternoon snack of scones with hot tea at Bennett's next to Minster Cathedral and began our sightseeing. There was so much to see and do in York. A day and a half wasn't quite long enough.
