Many thanks to Mike for making our stay so comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. Mike and staff were kindness itself helping me with our luggage and making sure Jenny had everything to hand and was made to feel welcome and valued. A caring friendly establishment that I highly recommend. All this, comfortable beds and an excellent breakfast to boot. Thanks...

We stopped in York for two nights on our way to Edinburgh. Lovely town and lovely hotel. Owner emailed a confirmation before we arrived which was nice. We booked the family room which provided a double bed for mom and dad, and a twin bed for each teen. The room was clean and fresh when we arrived. Bathroom looked newly...

We were made to feel very welcome from the start of our 3 nights. Mike was very friendly and a super host. Breakfast was great and set us up for the day ahead. Our room was comfortable, with little extras we didn't expect. This B&B also has a lovely courtyard to sit outside. We would stay there again, such was...

We stayed two nights and only 10 minute work into the main town. Lovely hosts and great location, however, the rooms are extremely dated! The biggest disappointment... no shower! A simple basic in this day and age.

Don't be put off by the unassuming frontage of this Guesthouse - Mike is a great host - friendly and informative and ready to assist with any requests. The room( No 2) was comfortable, clean and quiet - parking is via a free permit provided by Mike - breakfast is great with a good selection - we would definitely stay...

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. Mike the host is fantastic and his breakfasts are the start you need for your day. The hotel is just the right distance from the centre. We had a double room with a bath. The room was comfortable for our needs. My only observation is that the decor and bathroom are tired...

Mike was an amazing host and made mine and my boyfriend's stay really enjoyable. Being vegan, it's often quite tricky to find places that provide vegan options, and we'd actually booked without checking first, however it turned out that vegan breakfasts were in fact available which made our stay more hassle-free. Our room was lovely, extremely homely and very clean....

Based on other reviews, we booked here for 3 nights. Couldn't sleep, bed was so hard. Facilities poor, no soap, just a small bath gel already partly used. Shower so tiny, not even a soap dish everything had to go on the gfloor. Shabby and dirty. We left after 1 night but the landlord insisted we pay for all 3...

We opted for this guest house after reading the numerous great reviews about it and it did not disappoint. Before we even arrived in York, a number of emails had been exchanged between myself and the proprietor, Mike, regarding check-in procedures and I was provided with extremely detailed instructions on what to do on arrival. Once I accessed the building...

Stayed 2 nights in the Dairy Guest House. Perfect. Location excellent-15 minutes walk from city centre and a nice area, with permit provided for parking just around the corner. Highly recommend the quiz in the Swan pub just down the road on a Wednesday night, hosted by the very funny landlord, and can definitely suggest the Swan ale. The Guest...
