WE booked 2 rooms (2 couples), we were told to check in from 11 and were there at 11:30 am neither rooms were ready so we were able to dump bags and collect keys. We came back at 10 pm. My room (no 3) was quite a small double with the shower right next to the bed - strange but... More

Arrived 4th Oct left 6th Oct 2016. Both husband and myself booked this deliberately knowing it was a budget B & B. It cost £76 for the two nights. Attached are images for your assistance. When we booked we knew we had a shared landing with shared shower room and toilet. On arrival it was 16:05 hrs and door locked.... More

We stayed here with our family and the owners were not pleased with this. We had an young child who around 12 started to cry and within seconds the owner was at our door yelling at us about how we had woken up the entire building and needed to hush our baby. Overall very rude and snotty service.

A really friendly lovely B&B. Friendly greeting and a lovely room with very hot shower. The bed is really comfortable and the breakfast is excellent and cooked to order. Access is available at all times as you have your own key to the front door.

Cumbria House gives you a warm welcome, is very well located with not too long a walk into the City, HAS PARKING (very valuable in York), and gives you a good breakfast. All in all a very enjoyable visit. One minor moan is that the outside sign does moan in the wind and whilst it was secured I suspect what... More

Cumbria House is a bed and breakfast about 1 kilometer from York centre. The room we had was on the top floor. If you struggle with stairs the top floor is obviously not for you. The rooms have everything you need but are very small. Because the room is on the top floor it can get hot in the summer.... More

When we looked for a place near the old town of York we found Cumbria House. We understood that the rooms in the area would be small and they where. The one big thing was the bed. Mattress's have a use by date and the one in room 3 was many years past it. When lying on the bed you... More

Thank you for your feed back. Please accept our sincere apologies for the mattress. I do wish you had informed us on your first night and not after your third as we could have arranged to exchange it immediately but we were not aware that there was a problem. We use a company that can deliver matresses within 24 hours... More
