Lots of information in reception of things to do,and showed us on a map how to get to york center which is only a 10 min walk. Read more

A very enjoyable stay and good location on the outskirts of the City

We had a double Room no 6 at the back it is a busy road so we had a good nights sleep in there. You can walk into town in 15 minutes and the bus stop is just accross the road, buses every 10 minutes.Good quality breakfast, nicely decorated room, comfy bed and very friendly owners. Our room was a little compact but at this price for the York area you will not get any better.There are larger rooms to stay in we were a last minute booking Read more

A most enjoyable visit

We stayed 4 nights and were made very welcome by our hosts and staff who were very friendly and helpful and so we felt very comfortable. So impressed with the cleanliness of the whole Guest House. Breakfasts were delicious and served quickly with good choice of dietary requirements. Location excellent for riverside walks into the city centre or along streets with many interesting plaques. Would recommend this Guest House most highly. R M & S Essex. Read more

Response

Thank you for your review and kind words and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. The booking must have had the special requirements for making the bed into two separate beds, we are refurbing the rooms in January and hopefully reducing a lot of the furniture, this should create more space.

A perfect start to our holiday in Britain.

We spent two nights at the Chelmsford Place Guest House in York, and it was a great start to our tour of Britain. The hosts were very helpful and welcoming, giving us hints on where to eat and how to see the city. The location was only a short walk into the center of the city, so there was no need to drive. And there was free parking included, which was a real plus. Breakfast was delicious, and gave us a hearty start to the day. Read more

Comfortable and clean room; although ours was a little noisy as facing the busy road, but that did not bother us and we slept well.
We stayed very happily for two nights. Read more
