Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Fantastic location in the ancient city of York. With its Viking and Roman history, and rich railway and chocolate heritage, award winning pubs, restaurants, bars, museums, and galleries, York is an ideal getaway for a UK city break.

The house is a traditional turn-of-the-century Victorian terrace (workers') house - built by Joseph Rowntree, of chocolate fame - in the vibey ‘Bishy Road’ neighbourhood. Just 10-15 min stroll to York Station, City Centre, and the Racecourse.

David’s place is great - excellent location (very close to the centre and a safe, short walk away), really stylishly decorated, clean and inviting; I looked forward to coming back there at the end of the work day. Thoughtful touches like breakfast provisions were much appreciated…
