Have just come back from York today after a lovely stay at Chelmsford place guest house York. Janine and Steve were lovely hosts, the rooms were spotless and very spacey. Breakfast was delicious, we will definitely be going back. Just a shame it went so quick :)

We have stayed at Chelmsford House in the past, and keep returning because it is easy to access coming into York; it is close enough to town center to walk along the river; and it is great value for the money as provided by two amiable hosts, Steven and Janine. The rooms are cosy and inviting, and include tea and...

I have stayed all over the world in various types of accommodation and this guest house is right up there with the best. If I had to find one fault .... well the answer is I could not - absolute perfection and everything you could possibly want from a guest house. The hospitality and breakfast were superb.
