Had a great 2 night stay. Room very clean - in fact all of the house is lovely. Ron and Nicole were good hosts and the cooked breakfast was one of the best we have had. Its a 10-15 minute walk to the centre of York but there are also a few nice restaurants very near by .

Although we stayed only one night for a wedding in York, Nicole and Ron could not have been more welcoming. Excellent communication in the run up to our arrival included ensuring that a taxi was booked in good time to get us to the venue. Well appointed room, comfortable bed and quality ingredients for breakfast all added up to make...

Fantastic stay at this guest house. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful. We booked last minute, and Nicole and Ron, couldn't have been more helpful, gave us suggestions of where to eat and pleasant walks into the centre. The Guest house only a 10 minute walk from train station and easy to find.

I may be repeating all that has already been written about Southlands in the other 5 rated reviews - Ron and Nicole are the perfect hosts. The recommendations for dinner, drinks, sites, tours (they even knew the tour schedules by heart) were all excellent. The reservation process was easy and very attentive to ensuring a smooth arrival including the parking...
