“Great overnight stay”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Lovely and clean bed and breakfast accommodation in York a short walk from the minster. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were really great, A great bonus was free car parking.
Loved this little gem

Knowing when we booked that this B & B had only just been refurbished we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We had a very warm welcome from both Andrea and Simon who were perfect hosts and always attentive and ready for a chat. The rooms were comfortable and bright and the breakfasts surpassed even our expectations and were cooked to order and piping hot when they were brought to our table and delicious !! The location was perfect approx 5 minutes walk down the beautiful river bank or through the museum gardens and you were right in the middle of York where there was plenty to see and do. We had piece of mind too as there was off road and safe parking for our car. We would like to thank both Andrea and Simon who are a lovely couple and to reiterate that we really enjoyed our stay and will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: There are no tips each room was as good as the rest. The only thing would be if you have problems...

We chose the No 21 for its location and were no disappointed. The rooms have all recently been refurbished to a very high standard with lots of finishing touches to make you feel at home.

Breakfast is wonderful and plenty of options .

Simon & Andrea are fantastic hosts and we are looking forward to seeing them again in the near future

First impressions count, and I knew from my phone call to book a room at No. 21 York, I was in for a special experience. Friendly, helpful and above all professional, you get the feeling straight away that this is no ordinary B&B. There is a real sense of personal pride taken in the way guests are treated.

After speaking with Simon (our host), I was not at all surprised to find out he has years of experience working in some pretty spectacular top end hotels around the world. It really comes across in the attention to detail, and guest focused service we enjoyed.

The rooms are decorated in warm and inviting manner, and I particularly liked the little touches of including a toiletries bag and complimentary mineral water. Having one room pet friendly is a really nice touch and is another example of how Simon focuses on being warm and inviting to all guests.

I loved being in walking distance from some of York's top attractions. Simon's suggestion of cutting through the Museum Gardens on my way to the main shopping streets was a real treat, with the ruins of St Mary's Abbey and idyllic setting on the banks of the River Ouse. Simon also suggested visiting York Minster for the Evensong choir service at 4pm, which was a real treat and something I would definitely recommend others should do.

All in all, we had a great time at No. 21 York, and I have already recommended it to family and friends.

A treat from our daughter and partner for my wife`s birthday. We arrived before check in time,but were given a very warm welcome. Allowed to leave our car in the hotels car park while we explored York. The hotel was spotless,nice and bright. The hosts,Simon and Andrea could not do enough for us. Breakfasts where delicious,with fresh baked bread,and a large choice of jams,cereals,fresh fruit,juices etc. plus full english breakfast. Coffee,tea, biscuits and fresh milk in your room. The car never moved from the car park during our stay,the city centre with all the attractions,shops etc only 5 mins walk away. Would highly recommend this hotel and would visit again. Big thanks to Simon and Andrea.
