My boyfriend and I stayed in York at Barrington Guest House on 10 sept 2013 for just one night. Our initial impressions based on the outside appearance of the property were "uh oh" but these were soon dispelled once we were inside and shown to our room. We used booking .com so knew that we were getting a small double...

I stayed at Barrington House for one night on business a couple of days ago and was very impressed with the overall experience. I had a single room, plenty large enough to relax in for one night. The room was comfortable and very clean and tidy, as was the en-suite, with all the little touches one expects in a much...

stayed at the Barrington last week and was immediately made to feel very welcome. The couple who run the place kept a very tight ship, the room we stayed in was a little on the small side, but that was no big deal , as it was very clean and tidy. The breakfast was excellent and with York just a...

The room was immaculate, great facilities, extremely comfortable bed, beautiful linen and all the extras. Alan and Kristina are warm and welcoming, but that does not mean they are not professional in their approach, indeed...

There is a lot of plus points for this B&B particularly the quiet cul de sac location and also the close proximity to the centre and to the many attractions. Our room was comfortable with a large and comfy double bed and a quiet surrounding area. Not all perfect however. Our room had flimsy curtains and no blinds and were...

Stayed with my partner for our anniversary and would definitely recommend Barrington House to people wishing to explore the beautiful city of York. Set around 15 minutes walk from the centre of town in a pleasant quiet area. Got a nice welcome from Kristina, who helped us with directions into town, and gave us a good idea of where the...
