Very nice, clean and friendly guest house. Parking is on road nearby with a visitors' card provided by Mike when you check in. Rooms vary in size - room 1 is a small double, whereas room 4 is spacious. Only downside for me was that the mattress in Room 4 was very firm, but this is very much a personal... More

We booked via Booking.com and after, I emailed the owner to ask if he had any recommendations for restaurants (after explaining the trip was for our anniversary). I was a... More

The Dairy is a great little B&B near downtown and an easy and inexpensive bus ride to the University of York. We were in York for a long weekend and stayed at the Dairy Guest House because our daughter recommend it. Mike is a great host. Definitely recommend it.

If you are looking for 4* hotel facilities at a realistic price then stay here. The most important part of any hotel is the bed, ours was perfect. The variety of breakfasts' were as good as you will find in 4* hotels - including homemade jam. The proprietor, Michael, was the perfect 'mine host' and would try to satisfy your... More

Kettle, tea, coffee, biscuits and bottled water replenished daily. Ideally situated just off 'Bishy Road' with lovely shops and places to eat; ten mins walk from city centre.

Firstly we received a very friendly and informative welcome from Mike when we arrived, and when we said we would be up and out early in the morning as we were going on a booked excursion, he immediately offered to book our taxi. Our room, I believe, had been freshly refurbished and it was lovely. We were in room 3... More
