The whole building and rooms were beautiful, very lovely decoration made it feel upmarket yet cosy and homely.
The place was about a leisurely 15/20 minute walk to the main centre of York, with many cute shops and interesting streets on the way (such as part of the York wall).
The breakfast was delicious and filling, with plenty on offer. It meant that we didn't need to buy breakfast when out and about, and made us get up early so we made most of the day.
The owners were helpful and attentive, with professional room cleaning and lots of topping up of tea bags and biscuits!
We decided to take a chance on this place due to the price (less than many other places in York!), the location and the other reviews. It did not disappoint, and so would recommend a stay here to anyone!
