Stayed for 1 night on the 26th July 2014. The owners couldn't do enough for you. As we were arriving early they arranged early check in and organised a taxi to the racecourse. We stayed in room 3, which was spacious and comfortable with a lovely little en suite down a small flight of stairs. There was plenty of choice...

I cannot fault our stay in anyway or any of the communication from the owners. I booked this B&B and was informed it was the last room available, so we were allocated a twin room with a separate but private bathroom. I received a message from the hotel, letting me know about the room I had booked and I was...

This well run place is within easy walking distance to York centre. The house itself looks old and consequently has the feel of an old fashioned boarding house but the reality is different in as much as the room is equipped with a smart slim TV, a digital clock, and a facility for listening to music (beyond me!) The tea/coffee...

Full English along with a selection of fresh fruit, juices and cereal were served in the conservatory for breakfast. We had planned to take...

Decided to spend a night in the city of York with my partner as a special treat so, as you can imagine, I wanted somewhere that was a bit nicer than your normal run-of-the-mill budget hotel but was also in a great location within the city and this lovely little guest house definitely fitted the bill. It was literally 15...

Bowen house is one of those properties you could rate six out of five! We arrived an hour after the time we advised, but this was not an issue. We were warmly welcomed and offered fresh milk for our room (which was appreciated), provided with a map and had the route into town (about 10 minute walk away) explained. Upon...

We enjoyed our stay at the Bowen Guest House. Room 5 was small with sloping ceilings (in the loft space) but had everything we needed for our stay. A comfy double bed, TV, tea making facilities and en-suite. The room was fairly clean and nice and quiet in the evenings. Great breakfast offerings and the owners were nice and helpful....
