I was in a single room, Room 4, which shared a bathroom one floor down with another room. A toilet was in one room and in another room was a room with a sink, tub, and... More

Location was excellent, we were greeted with a friendly smile, and a knowledgeable host. We were shown to our room with ease. The room was a nice size and spotlessly clean. The attention to detail was spot on, it's the finishing touches that make all the difference, ultra fast internet, a quiet Dyson fan in the room, flat screen tv,... More

Can't praise Andrew and his staff at Bootham City Guest house enough. Stayed one night with him to attend a concert in York and our stay was fantastic. Andrews attention to detail is second to none. One of my pet hates at hotels and guest houses that offer room refreshment, they always ration how many milk, sugar, coffee and tea... More

Great location...walking distance from the heart of the city. Friendly staff. Seems like a young-ish area with many reasonable places to eat and drink. Good full breakfast as well. Very helpful young ladies working the front desk.

At first glance, it doesn't really look like much, but once inside, we were greeted with a very friendly welcome. The room was spotless, with plenty of room. It's in a quiet neighbourhood about a 10-15 minute walk from the walls/town of York and it's a very direct route. It's only about a 6-7 pound cab ride from the train... More

After much travel, we were weary of "charming" which seems to be the description for "a bit shoddy really". Bootham really is charming and our room #2 was sparkling freshly appointed and spotlessly clean. Check in was excellent. Close to everything and we would definitely stay again!
