This is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review. Just for the record, this place has recently changed hands and the previous good reviews were bourne up by visitors to the hotel. Everything seemed half-hearted, at best, no real welcome, nothing changed, cleaned or emptied during our 4-day stay, mediocre breakfasts. Nothing tells you that alcohol...

We stayed here for one night. The welcome we got left us asking questions. What?! We did not understand the breakfast situation and the man who showed us to our room was fishing about in a cupboard and wardrobe and all we heard was him say 'oh my God' we still don't know what he saw! The room itself was...

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...

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....

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...
