      Historical Traveler Reviews The Bloomsbury York

      A brief visit


      My partner and I had a brief stop over at this charming B&B and thought it wonderful. The hosts were very welcoming, the rooms had everything you needed and the English breakfast is to die for. We will be back for a longer stay in the warmer months.

      Very enjoyable stay.


      Apologies for not sending this earlier as it was August when we visited York and ive had a mad summer.

      My girlfriend and i had York for a pre-school term break and found the whole experience delightful. The Bloomsbury was wonderful from arrival to departure, the rooms, the service and the food.

      York itself is so cultural and so chilling. We will be back sooner than later and will repeat our stay at this charming B&B.



      I stayed here with my partner while the St Nicholas Fayre was on. Although it is a little far out of the city I couldnt fault the B&B. The rooms were beautifully decorated and clean, service second to none and the breakfast scrummy.

      I wouldnt hesitate to stay here again on our return to York.

      A little far out


      We stayed here in October and although the hotel was lovely it is a 30 minute walk into the City, not ideal when youre this side of 50. You could drive in but the parking is so expensive 14 a day.

      We really enjoyed York and there is lots to do and see and some fantastic restaurants. Give The Olde Grey Mare a miss it is a little rough at night time.

      Excellent guest house


      My partner and I enjoyed a 4 night midweek break at the Bloomsbury in September and we can't praise it enough.

      It is situated a good 15 minute walk from the Minster area of the City but you can catch a frequent park and ride bus from round the corner which is cheap and takes you right into the City centre.

      Our room was spotless with a lovely view of a church out of our window.

      Excellent service and we will visit again.

      City break in York


      Immaculately clean and tastefully decorated rooms. Friendly and welcoming staff and a hearty breakfast.

      Very welcoming


      We had a very enjoyable time in York, staying at the Bloomsbury. The owners were very helpful and our room was spacious and immaculately clean. We had a tasty full English breakfast with poached egg, served in the elegant large dining room. The whole experience was very pleasant and we will be returning.

      Most recommendable


      comfortable and beautifully decorated room with its own character - warm welcome, friendly atmosphere - good breakfasts - easy-to-find convenient location. Very recommendable. I will return.



      We stayed here two nights and found it to be quite pleasant. The rooms are charming, the owners helpful, and the breakfast good. There is a city bus stop just around the corner so the trip into town is easy and quite short. You could walk if you wanted to. I would definitely recommend.

      The Very Best


      We could not have expected any more. The rooms are extremely comfortable, superbly clean and very tastefully decorated. Breakfast is delicious.Hosts are wonderful and very knowledgeable. A real home from home in a lovely location. We will be back again and again.

      York College & Class dinner

      ... the college experience was really good. We all got a good impression of how it was like to study at such a college, and how things were put together.
      It had been a good day so far, but we were all looking forward to the dinner with the whole class. It was approximately 8 pm and we all met at the Stonegate restaurant, close to the Cathedral. It was nice having the whole class and our lovely teachers, Claus and Christel, together and ...

      So the town of York is consequently, about nine metres higher than it was in the Viking period. When you enter the Jorvik centre, you descend the staircase, and the wall ...

      ... In the 19th Century policemen lived in the tower. One such officer of the law, Harry Snowden, was an avid naturalist and wrote a book on the local wildlife in York, especially surrounding the wall.

      After only a morning in York I was already completely in love with the city. It is the perfect combination of modern and old, the preservation of the past standing side by side with technological advancement. If York doesn't steal your heart, you may not have had ...
