Just come back from a 2 night stay at Foss Bank Guest House and we will definitely be returning. Location is excellent only a short stroll to the centre, and a big plus is the private off street parking which you don't usually find. We had a lovely spacious bedroom with all facilities and an extremely comfortable bed and luxury...

We stayed here for 3 days last week. Best place we have stayed in during our numerous visits to York. Our room was lovely, the location was perfect for us, just round the corner from where our daughter lives and a short walk to the centre of York. Fantastic breakfast...(delicious jam...ended up buying some to bring home !!). Kevin was...

Tea, coffee, hot chocolate making facilities in the bedroom. Breakfast was wonderful, with a good varied menu. Something that made my husband happy.....proper coffee served at breakfast and not...

We only wish we had found Foss Bank when we'd stayed in York in previous years. Kevin is a great host, nothng too much trouble. The accommodation is very quiet and comfortable. There is a good choice of breakfast, cooked to perfection. It's in a great location, too, only 7 minutes walk from the city centre.

Welcome very warm, room was immaculate, breakfast was extremely tasty made to order with local produce. The location is fantastic and big comfy beds. We will...

This was our second visit to the guest house and we enjoyed it as much as the first. The room was a good size, clean, charmingly decorated and the host is friendly and efficient. We can't fault it - highly recommended.

We have returned to this B&B on 4 occasions and as always it lives up to its reputation. The owner Kevin can't do enough for you without being too intrusive and the breakfast is cooked to perfection. The rooms are well presented and the location is fantastic as it is less than 10 mins walk from the heart of the...

I am getting to be quite a regular at this guest house. It is in a perfect location, only 5 mins walk from the city walls, so no need for a taxi to get back late at night. The rooms are large and spacious with lovely art work on the walls and lovely comfy beds and pillows. It is super...
