Nice little touch was fresh milk and bottles of water in the mini fridge in the rooms and fresh flowers. We went to the races and...

Burswood B & B is so clean and lovely it has a quiet ambiance and our room was so well equipped. Every comfort catered for. Located across from the stables and close to the racers and a short bus ride into York.

This was the best B&B I have ever stayed in. The full English breakfast was beautifully cooked, the fruit was fresh and tasty and a huge choice. The rooms and service was better than a 4 star hotel all run by one man, George the owner. Thanks for a great weekend and making us so welcome!

We stayed with George at the Burswood guest house for 3 nights in April 2013. George is fastidious in the way he keeps the accomodation and our room was immaculate. We had a downstairs room with a queen size bed plus a seperate single so there was plenty of room. The ensuite was well laid out but compact (like all...

We booked this B&B based on the other Trip advisor reviews and glad we did. It is very well located close to the centre and right next to the racecourse with off street parking. We booked two rooms, the Orchid (honeymoon suite) which is on the top floor and the twin room (Lavender I think it was) on the ground...

My wife and I stayed for two nights at The Burswood Guest House (we were in the Orchid Room). We found the rooms to be spotlessly clean and fully equipped with everything we required, or were likely to require, for a short stay. Top quality fitttings and furnishings and excellent en suite bathroom. Room was warm and comfortable and had...
