Lovely breakfast. Stayed here for the weekend. Great price room was very clean and tidy. Hosts are nice people and will do the best to cater to your needs. Would stay here again. Close to the centre easily accessible and close to a bus service and local pubs and a 2 minute stroll to the river. Great place!

Booked last minute, very welcoming and accommodating. Room was large, clean and warm ideal base for York ten minute walk into town and own car park. Breakfast was relaxed, tasty and filling. We'd definitely come back.
