Newly renovated, clean and tidy and full of character, we found the accommodation to be comfortable and cozy and located right in the heart of town. Fresh clean linen, warm bedding and historic surroundings made for a wonderful weekend away.

Great place with wonderful hosts. Very convenient for "downtown" York. Restaurants, shops and other activities all within walking distance. Our group had a very pleasant stay and we will definitely go back.
