We only stayed one night for our anniversary but we've never stayed in a better guest house. We stayed in the holly room and though it is compact it's very tastefully decorated and very clean, with everything you need. George, the owner, must spend his days thinking how he can improve his rooms facilities and the guesthouse in general. There...

Excellent rooms - we especially appreciated the fridge with complimentary water and fresh milk. Well placed for York city centre. It best try to avoid the rush hour as Tadcaster Road gets very busy. Good onsite parking however.

Lovely little guest house on a relatively busy road a couple of miles south of the city centre. We booked 2 rooms at short notice, one downstairs and other upstairs. Both were well appointed although dressing gowns were missing downstairs. Everything else was excellent, including breakfast. Only disappointment: an inconsiderate German guest parked his car badly and made no attempt...
