If you're looking for a cosy, friendly, good old fashioned family-run guest house then look no further. Then factor in the delicious home-cooked breakfast, ensuite/coffee&tea/TV and free wifi facilities plus a short stroll along the picturesque riverside into the city and all for a very reasonable price, you'd be nuts to look anywhere else!

The King Size Room was beautiful and spacious. The Owners are very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and silent in the night. We can recommend this guest house and will certainly come back because we enjoyed our stay in York and this won't be our last visit in York.
