We stayed here for one night in November, had a lovely comfortable room and no problems with the parking. We had a warm welcome and were recommended places to eat. Fantastic breakfast and husband loved the sausages. A great location and lovely views, hope to stay again.

Beautiful room (we stayed in one of the 4-poster rooms at the front of the house); not a huge room, but that didn't matter. It was a perfect balance between modern and simple, yet with a homely, personal feel. Excellent breakfast, very friendly hosts, perfect location, good parking facilities. We could not find fault with this guest house; we would...

Perfect B&B to explore the beautiful city of York. All sights are a short walk. Clean, friendly and welcoming. Very comfortable bed, good shower and perfectly acceptable breakfast. Lovely views of the river and the big wheel.

This December took us to our second stay at the Abbey Guest House and like our first stay it was perfect. Good location, parking facilities, five minutes walk from the centre of town, close to museum and river cruises just a perfect place to stay. We stayed in the same room at the front of the house with views of...

We stayed one night in room 1 and everything was practically perfect. Very convenient for the station, except for when the river floods and the footbridge gets blocked off as we unfortunately discovered. Luckily the Guest House itself was unaffected as it is up a few more steps and a few metres further back from the riverside path which was...

We have just returned from a two night stay at Abbey Guest house. We are frequent visitors to York and have stayed at several hotels. The experience of staying in a guest house was of course different. However, it was overwhelming positive, lovely immaculate room and breakfast was delicious and on site parking a definite bonus. Added to this the...

I have just returned from my third visit to the Abbey Guest House and, as always, have nothing but praise. My friend and I enjoy our shopping trips but as one day is never enough, we stay overnight. On arrival we are always made to feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are immaculate and there...

We have stayed in York each year for 40 years, including our honeymoon. So we decided to pay a flying vist, as part of our Ruby Wedding celebrations. We are so glad we found Alec and Gill.
