My brother and i recently stayed at Bowmans. The room was very clean with good facilities. We enjoyed a lovely freshly cooked breakfast with excellent sausage and bacon. The owners were friendly and welcoming . We would say the locaton is good only a short walk into the heart of York. Excellent guest house would stay again .

We stayed at the Bowman's for two nights during valentines weekend. When we pulled up in a taxi Debra was waiting for us with a warm welcome. The room was clean and fresh and comfortable, the cooked breakfast was superb and really sets you up for the day. The Bowman's is well worth staying at when you visit York and will soon be back as York's Number One B&B. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
