Great experience, friendly staff but didn't have internet in my room. I went to York on a study trip so I wanted to stay close to both the city and the uni, but it's a bit far to walk to both, so the location is not super central

Close to the river. For us it was a 30mins leisurely walk from the Limes to the centre of York. Not too near and not too far. The bus stops almost outside the Limes and is very regular. Great place to stay.

An ideal location for a family break. Lovely family run concern with every requirement catered for. The breakfast was the best we have had in any hotel of 4/5 star rating that we have visited in the past. The location was ideal next to lovely pubs with excellent food. Great advice and recommendations and perfect room to suit us all....

We had a fabulous overnight stay in this lovely bnb, a warm welcome and the best breakfast ever, they have an award for the Best Breakfast and I couldn't agree more! The bed was lovely and comfy which is always a bonus for us!! There's a super Indian - The Indian Garden about a 20 min walk. Fab Place!!!

Thank you for taking time to post a review for us. I am glad that you enjoyed our breakfast. You did have the smallest room in the house but I am not sure I would call it dated. We do decorate to the period of the house with a modern twist. The furniture in the room is less than a...
