Yet again Mel, Ray and Hayley have pulled out the stops and made us feel as if their guesthouse existed just to please us. Our room was elegantly furnished, cosy and spotlessly clean; the food was, as always, superb and following a wonderful scrambled egg and smoked salmon breakfast I didn't need to eat again until the evening! Every essential...

One of the best things about staying at B&Bs is meeting hosts who really go out of their way to accommodate, and this place gets an A+. Very warm welcome, lovely well-thought out room, central location, great breakfast. Even after we had left, they were kind enough to let us leave our car parked in front for a couple of...

My wife and I recently visited the Emsley Guest House and had a wonderful time. Our host was wonderful and the breakfasts really nice. The guest house is centraly located and we were able to walk everywhere. The train station was less then a 10 minute walk so we never once had to hire a car. The guest house is...

My partner and I stayed here for a theatre visit in August. From the welcome email through to our departure, the stay was excellent. Our room was nicely decorated, the facilities were really good, it was very convenient for the town. The breakfast was delicious, and we had both vegetarian and gluten free options available. They were also very happy...

Really enjoyed staying at this lovely comfortable convenient bed-and-breakfast; couldn't fault it. Friendly welcome, all you could need in nicely decorated rooms, delicious breakfast (great to choose!), sound recommendations of where to eat and a parking voucher to boot! Can't ask for more than that (oh and the play was excellent too!!)

Last September my wife and I stayed at the Emsley Guest House and I required a special gluten free diet. That was no problem for our hosts and we enjoyed probably the best English breakfast in the country. The warm welcome, immaculately clean room [ York] and bathroom made our stay most enjoyable.
