I have stayed at Blakeney House on many occasions and always found the service and standard of accommodation to be excellent. Run by a very friendly couple for whom nothing is too much trouble. The standard of cleanliness is excellent, the breakfast very tasty, the rooms comfortable and there is an added bonus of a private car park - what...

Very pleasant guest house. Owners put all little touches like bottles tap water and fresh milk available from a fridge on the landing. Biscuits and sweets in rooms! Very clean and comfortable. Great choice at breakfast. Easy twenty five minute flat walk into town. Thoroughly recommend.

Quiet and comfy hotel, luverly room, clean and tidy. We stayed 3 nights, Louise and Mark looked after us the moment we got there to the moment we left, Oh, did I mention the fabulous breakfast with different breakfast specials. Close to the City centre, with all the sights, sounds and eateries that York has to offer. Highly recommended place...

Thank you Ian for your lovely review. You stayed in our Superior room 11. Its French Style King bed and sofa in the Bay window means it s ideal for relaxing after a busy day. Guests benefit from Free parking, free WiFi and seem to enjoy our breakfast choices. We hope we will see you again on your travels. Louise

Lovely spacious rooms, fresh milk and chilled water both brilliant ideas, TV a little small for room and chairs rickety. Breakfast was lovely and filling. Service was prompt but a little overbearing. While eating we were asked several times if everything was ok - once would have been enough. Also we were the last ones eating on our final day...

Thank you for your review. I felt sure that I had made you very welcome during your stay and I am sorry if you did not feel this. I was most certainly not rushing you during breakfast but just trying to provide a good service. You were welcome to seat as long as you liked. I always asks guests if...

We enjoyed a weekend in York end of March. The accommodation was everything you could ask for in every respect and very helpful hosts. Wished we were there longer, we didn't have any spare time and felt it would be great to spend some time just relaxing in the guests lounge. Bus stop right outside straight to York centre was...

We stayed for three nights and very very happy with this friendly B&B. The room was large and comfortable with every facility - we especially appreciated the fresh milk in the fridge outside the rooms for our early morning cuppa. The breakfasts were excellent - a cold buffet of fruit and cereal followed by the delicious cooked breakfasts. It's the...

This is one of the best b&b/small hotels we've stayed in. Very nice building outside and beautifully decorated inside. Are room was very well appointed and a good size, nice and warm and despite being at the front of building facing the road, quiet. The breakfast was great with a very good choice served in a very nice dining room....

We were greeted by Mark on our arrival and shown to our room where they had left a small bottle of bubbly to celebrate my birthday, nice personal touch. Next morning at breakfast Louise introduced herself before being served a fantastic breakfast. The personal touches by owners Mark & Louise make it a memorable stay, hence I have no hesitation...

When I booked, I mentioned that I would be driving a medium sized rental van and enquired about parking. Mark & Louise were more than accomodating and 'reserved' a large space in their off road car park to make sure I could leave the van in a safe place. Although on a main road, the size and layout of the...
