great spot, for a leisurely 15 minute walk into town! You can even hear the Minster bells from the house. Several restaurants within walking distance. the car park only holds 2 (very) small cars, but you may be able to park out on the street. Good wifi service in the rooms, free computer access in breakfast room. Breakfast was great,...

I stayed at Bootham Gardens (for the second time) for the York marathon weekend. As last time, Ian and Anne were wonderfully welcoming and helpful. I've been visiting York since my teens so have a pretty good knowledge of the City but for anyone who's new to town Ian and Anne have put together a wealth of information about places...

Thanks for that and please remember clicking on the Bookings.com calendar will always show no prices availability even when I have rooms available. This is because I have refused to pay TripAdvisor £159 per bedroom per year AND 22% of the gross value of any booking through them. In effect I am being blackmailed. They also refuse to remove false...

Having cancelled a booking at another York B&B due to unbelievable rudeness I was just glad to be able to get a place at such short notice. We really landed on our feet here. Ian and Anne extremely helpful and friendly. The room was very clean with comfortable beds. Breakfast was superb with quality ingredients, no basic value sausages etc...

A really, really good find. Ian and Anne very welcoming. My single room had all the facilities needed, was clean, comfortable and well furnished with very nice ensuite. A huge difference to the single room broom cupboards (with narrow short beds) that I usually get.to stay in. Breakfasts superb. Huge choice, quality food, home made bread and preserves, all very...

Our first stay with Ian & Anne. What a delight! A warm welcome to start with. Our room was well appointed and very clean. We stayed for four nights which was nowhere long enough to see all the sights so we have booked six nights for 2014. Breakfast was delicious - home cooking at its best, and all freshly cooked....

I recently returned from my third stay at Bootham Gardens. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting York. As usual Ann & Ian were excellent hosts, welcoming, friendly and mines of information. I usually find hotel beds very uncomfortable, but not at Bootham Gardens where the beds are lovely and I get a good nights sleep. The rooms are very...
