Les and Al run a very welcoming, relaxed and efficient guest house. The location for the old city centre is very good - 10 minutes walk and you are there yet the area where the guest house is located is very quiet. Breakfast is a treat for those with a hearty appetite. Room cosy although a little on the small... More

St. Raphael Guest House was everything a good B&B should be. The room and ensuite were cosy, immaculate, and quiet. Les is a superb hostess -- warm and gracious. She was very helpful in providing guidance about various sites in York. The breakfast choices were incredible, ranging from freshly baked bread, cereals, fruit, yogurt, eggs, and salmon. Her breakfasts kept... More

We were warmly welcomed to this quiet guest house, less than 10 minutes' walk from the centre of York. The rooms were simple but comfortable and the breakfasts were of very high quality with excellent service.

Posizione perfetta, in uno dei quartieri più piacevoli di York (Bootham), vicinissimo ai Museum Gardens e a 7-8 minuti a piedi dal Minster. Stanza luminosa, silenziosa, pulitissima - e ci si sveglia col profumo del pane fatto in casa. Colazione superlativa, il miglior english breakfast che si possa immaginare. Le comunicazioni via email con i proprietari sono state efficientissime. Davvero... More
