Andrew and Clare made us feel welcome; they did a great job of answering our questions about York. The breakfasts were excellent; the homemade granola and muffins were especially tasty. The room was clean and comfortable, and it was conveniently located. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed 2 nights for the York Xmas market. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Great room really well furnished ( we were in number 6). Great advice on where to eat and go for a "local" drink. Breakfast was amazing and just as good as one you can buy at "Betty's". We have stayed in York every... More

We stayed there for one night only, would have loved to stay longer as York was beautiful, and Claire and Nikki were great. The room was great, very clean, and spacious. With such a short time to visit York, Claire gave us very good advice about how to get around, things to see and do. The breakfast was fabulous, and... More

Had a very pleasant stay at the Bay Tree. It's about 10-15 mins walk from Clifford's Tower, in a row of Victorian 3 storey terrace houses, and next to a nice parade of shops with a good selection of restaurants and pubs. The owners are extremely friendly and welcoming and the rooms are furnished to a high standard. Breakfast is... More

We stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hosts were very accomodating to our requirements given that we had a 15 month old with us. The locally sourced breakfast was lovely and the rooms were of a very high standard... I can't recommend this highly enough. It's just a 10 minute walk in to York too; bonus!
