Friendly staff- convenient location.
Excellent friendly service. Hotel was very convenient for the station or city centre, being about 7 mins walk from both. Room not the most spacious and heating was a little hit and miss. Over-all though, a reasonably priced hotel with super-friendly staff.

Our short stay in York
The guesthouse is in a quiet street, close to the city centre for convienience. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable but there was no heating, turned on, in the room, so we felt cold at times. The breakfast was very good and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely stay there again.
