Breakfast and the decor! Also we were given a parking permit which was very handy.
The room was very nicely decorated and very clean. The chocolates were a nice touch aswell as being able to help yourself to cereals, yoghurt and fruit for breakfast.
The room was small but crammed with furniture as well as a sloping ceiling making it something of an obstacle course ! The private bathroom was located down the hallway, once you had unlocked the door there were 2 steps to go down however I do not recall there being a warning on the outside of the door. There was no hot water coming from the taps the next morning.
Room and the quietness away from the busy city
As someone who doesn't enjoy a big breakfast, the toast, yogurt and fruit were perfect
The single beds in the twin room were not even single, hence not the best nights sleep
Lovely host, nicely decorated room, breakfast tray in the morning and a quiet, comfortable bed for the night. The rooms are small and basic, but for what you pay it's great value.
Loved the finishing touches to our room, from the rustic trunks, mini flowers, arrangement of tea cups. Felt like home. Fantastic wallpaper choice. Carpets super soft & bed well presented. Great location and good nights sleep.
Good clean room, good comfortable bed, staff were friendly and helpful but unobtrusive, adequate light breakfast/
I had an upstairs room ant the stairs were steep and handrail not easy to hold. Water in bedroom only luke warm.
Great value, lovely wallpaper, not institutional or neutral (hooray!), charming and eccentric, off lovely Bishy Rd full of independent shops including a friendly curry house, near Rowntree Park. Nice clean sheets.
Really tiny, which was fine for us as we're quite small, but worth knowing if you're a bit bigger. Grubby in the corners and under the beds, simple breakfast with no fresh milk (only UHT). Bit weird having no-one to greet us till following day.
I wanted to show my young son some Yorkshire hospitality so thought I would book into a B&B .. We didn't meet anyone until we received a cold fruit breakfast and some white toast in the morning on a tray in our room ... We arrived to a note on the door to call some cell numbers (a phone call to NZ) then there were notes on the bed (cash only) then instructions re a bathroom in a cupboard ... Very very disappointing ... The place is unmanned which should be explained as we had late comers coming and going ... all in all a huge disappointment .. Felt they were only in it for the 75 pound they got early in the morning ..
Bathroom very small had to open door to dry myself. Mould in shower and floor from water leakage in toilet. Lifting floor from damp in bathroom.
good for centre of town
We felt disappointed with this hotel. Holmlea is a misdescription. We expected a warm friendly homely spacious place. Room far too small. Shower/toilet minute, breakfast a token effort. Far too many rules that do not seem to make us feel welcome. e,g if you misuse the badly plumbed in masurating toilet you will be charged over £100. does not feel like it is run professionally but as a sideline.
Small & noisy room
Location on a quiet street, parking out front, near conveniences and a short walk to the old town.
Breakfast in room - a little cramped with no chairs or table, but nice to have it delivered!
A nice big bed.
Very expensive for what it was, but to be fair it was a very busy weekend in York and everything was expensive.
It's an wonderful guest house. We loved the room for the minute we first opened the door.
Beautifully clean, light airy guest house. The owners were amazing as was the hot, freshly cooked breakfast. The Lakes district is a fabulous area. Our wifi was weak at times but we could email etc. We were in the top room.
People working were friendly. Breakfast was good. Room & washroom was clean.
room allotted was on the top floor, carrying the luggage was difficult. Wifi was not available in the room as it was on the top floor. Location of hotel is far from the York station.
Location with free parking
Close to town - walking distance. No hassle. Nice house
Bathroom was tiny an shower was a bit temperamental
friendly staff, location good, decore fine, clean
not enough towels and they were a bit old and thin
Location, Atmosphere, cozy room, supplementary breakfast, friendly owner, trust of the staff who left the key just at our possession in the envelope near the door)
Toilet was a bit out of order, flush worked bad and there was a noise from it as if it was a rocket while water collecting
The location was good for the city and an easy route in. We had the triple room which was nicely decorated and spacious.
no shower mat for the floor of the shower tray. I was travelling with my elderly mother in law, who would not use the shower for fear of slipping.
