“A very well run guest house, home away from home”
Reviewed 8 November 2010

I spent two nights at the Burswood guest house (19 to 21 October 2010).
My experience staying there was a very pleasant one. With friendly & courteous management and staff, clean & cozy room and nice sumptuous breakfast i felt very comfortable . For me it was like home away from home.
I was offered assistance promptly when needed.
The outside environment is very attractive also with a nice garden overlooking the dinning area.
The guest house is located on the major road which makes for easy access to the bus park and also the city centre.
I would recommend it for any one visiting York

Nice room, free internet, great friendly host and a beautiful breakfast room overlooking the garden. I was so impressed I tipped an extra 5 pound and for anyone who knows me this is exceptional.

We (my wife and son) were driving up from London without a prior hotel reservation. We were attracted by the outlook of this place. We were indeed lucky to stay here. The place is immaculately clean. Facilites are adequate. Breakfast is excellent. George is not only friendly and helpful, but an excellent chef as well. Thank you so much, George. We'll definitely come again.

We drove from Switzerland to York with my daughter and all her stuff for University, so the secure parking, out of the busy town centre and a good night's sleep were our priorities. However, we got much better than we bargained for. This superior B&B has many qualities you would expect of a 5 star hotel, but with the friendly, personal input you can only get from an owner who knows his business very well. Beautifully furnished, lovely fresh bedding on a very comfy bed, thick fluffy towels and an excellent shower. The rooms, bathrooms and soft furnishings are immaculately clean, well maintained and high quality, right down to the choice of teas and biscuits with fresh milk in the fridge. We had a wonderful breakfast; plenty of fresh fruit, yogurt and cereals with a full English cooked perfectly to order and served on pretty fine bone china. The bus service into the town centre runs every 10/15 minutes, more convenient than queuing and searching for parking. I would recommend this B & B to everyone, especially to those who would really appreciate the individual, homely touches in the decor and accessories rather than bland and minimalistic modern hotels.

Lovely room perfectly equippend and clean. Glorious breakfast, with lots of fresh, tasty fruits, and good quality sausage. A warm welcome from George. Unfortunately we had planned to stay only one night, it is worth a longer staying.

All that is advertised on the Burswood Guest House web page is true. First and foremost when travelling I look for cleanliness and this house is spotlessly clean. Bathroom facilities are excellent and the bedroom cannot be faulted. I liked having a variety of teas and coffees in the room and fresh milk from with fridge. There was also bottled water. As is usually standard these days, there was a TV. I appreciated being able to iron my own clothes in the room and I had laundry facilities if I was staying longer. I have limited mobility but this was not a problem as I could park easily and access to the dining room from a ground floor room posed no problems. Cuisine was superb and the full English breakfast was a tasty gastronomical experience, - the best i have ever experienced..
