Upon arrival allocated a parking space, whist checking in offered refreshment and home made cake, good start. The room was spotless and roomy. Bathroom large and shower powerful. Good quality towels, fluffy and toiletries. The bed was very comfortable and bedding...

The room though small was spotlessly clean and well appointed, bed comfy and shower powerful. Breakfast offered a good 'help yourself' cereals and fresh fruit buffet followed by a well cooked breakfast, a perfect poached egg, good quality sausage and...

This guesthouse is in a great location on the river just a few blocks from the train station on one side, and Yorkminster, Yorkshire Historical Museum, and old walled city area on the other. From our train it was an easy walk across the river to the hotel. The river view was very relaxing and enjoyable. The York Boating Club...

Rooms are all upstairs. No lift. Room was a decent size. Breakfasts were wonderful. Very sweet lady runs this place. Overlooks the river and cute front yard with pretty flowers. Nice location. Within walking distance of City Central. To get there from the train station (within walking distance), you must go up steps, cross on bridge, and then down steps,...

Spent two nights in early July along with another couple. Found this property to include a great location in York, with some rooms overlooking the river. Rooms were good, and breakfast was ample, tasty and varied. Hosts were friendly, helpful with advice and made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Would highly recommend Abbey Guest House.
