Really nice little place, good price, very nice breakfast, great location 10 minutes walk into the centre. Stayed in a lovely light airy room right at the top of the building which we did not mind at all. Booked directly, really enjoyed our 2 night stay, made to feel very welcome. How a proper guest house should be run.

Guest house ideally located with a walk along the canal into York City centre. We walked to all the main sites including national railway museum and York Minster however I feel it may be too far for the elderly. Guesthouse was clean and tidy, breakfast was great and very accommodating. Lovely room on third floor however bathroom very small my fiancée is 6'4 and struggled to manoeuvre in the shower (common problem with him in hotels) parking a great feature and again very accommodating. We will be returning :)

Stayed for 2 nights in May, handy for walking down to the riverside for a relaxing stroll into the city. Nice breakfast, comfortable room and the free parking close to York city center is a definite advantage

Four of us stayed here for 4 nights and found the experience very good. Our rooms were comfortable and the breakfasts were excellent. It is good to have free parking in York. It is a fifteen minute walk into the City centre but it is quite pleasant to walk the riverside way into the centre. We had no complaints at all.

We stayed here for 2 nights over the Bank Holiday weekend and couldn't be happier. Phil, the owner, was very friendly and available to help with any requests. The place is about a 10-15min walk to the city centre, and you can take the route by the river, which is very pleasant.
We booked the cheaper 'semi en-suite' room, meaning we had a shower and sink in the room, and a toilet outside the room (but just for us, not shared with other rooms). This worked out perfectly, with a very affordable price tag, yet a nice comfortable and clean room, a delicious and very filling cooked breakfast and wonderful service!

We stayed here for one night when visiting York - lovely little guest house, full of character, host was lovely, our room was clean cosy and we slept like logs! Great breakfast, lots of useful leaflets about our stay was easy! Only a five minute walk from York!
