I stay at Foss Bank regularly, and breakfast is always good. Last week, Kevin, the owner, noticed that I didn't eat my apple in my breakfast fresh fruit. Said I didn't much like apple. Next day, he'd done me fruit with no apple. And I couldn't resist bacon, egg and mushrooms to follow....lovely. Shall be back in June.

Just back from an overnight stay in York. Had booked theatre tickets and decided to make a weekend of it. Having searched for somewhere to stay found that hotels and guest houses in the centre of York were very expensive and most required a 2 night stay. Foss Bank is just a 10 minute walk from the centre. When we...

Perfect location just a few mins walk to centre of York. Lovely clean room and really good breakfast. Very helpful and welcoming owners. Free off road safe parking, albeit down a narrow ally. Highly recommend.

Just come back from a 2 night stay at Foss Bank Guest House and we will definitely be returning. Location is excellent only a short stroll to the centre, and a big plus is the private off street parking which you don't usually find. We had a lovely spacious bedroom with all facilities and an extremely comfortable bed and luxury...

Just returned from another lovely stay at Foss Bank. We usually have a weekend here in Feb for our anniversary, but were unable to do so last year as we do not own diving gear, and the place was under water. Foss Bank is in a lovely tranquil area, as the name suggests it sits on the banks of the...

We stayed here for 3 days last week. Best place we have stayed in during our numerous visits to York. Our room was lovely, the location was perfect for us, just round the corner from where our daughter lives and a short walk to the centre of York. Fantastic breakfast...(delicious jam...ended up buying some to bring home !!). Kevin was...

Stayed at Foss bank as part of my birthday present. Kevin made us feel so welcome. The double bedroom was large, warm and tastefully decorated. Plenty of towels available in bathroom. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate making facilities in the bedroom. Breakfast was wonderful, with a good varied menu. Something that made my husband happy.....proper coffee served at breakfast and not...

We only wish we had found Foss Bank when we'd stayed in York in previous years. Kevin is a great host, nothng too much trouble. The accommodation is very quiet and comfortable. There is a good choice of breakfast, cooked to perfection. It's in a great location, too, only 7 minutes walk from the city centre.
