    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.

    A flying visit to York

    So, after a loooong conversation with Mr Prest, I had to rush to the train station for my journey to York. On the train, I spoke to a woman who had just put in an offer on a house in Knaresborough. She lived in a little village called Clifton, I think. Nothing for sale in Clifton, and she'd always loved visiting Knaresborough in the summer, so they took a punt and found a place they liked - fingers crossed, she gets it!

    Yep, dear ol' Dennis Prest was born in 1914, so he's seen quite a bit of history happen right in front of his nose... It was such a mission to find his place, even more so because I had checked out of my b&b in Harrogate and was pulling my case on wheels behind me! The address I'd given omitted the street name (!) so it took a while, but after asking a few people and a couple of phone calls, I hauled my case up a very, very ...

    Narrow roads, scary buses and stones

    ... often just one car width from one stone wall to the other.

    The rain mostly held off while we were visiting Hilltop (the farm that Beatrix Potter purchased in 1905 for the grand sum of 2000 pounds.) And this was lucky because to get to the farmhouse you have to "park and walk". You park at another old stone building, pay for your tickets, and then walk along the roadside about 500m to get into the garden area of ...

    ... not appear dripping from any of them :( we also visited Bakewell to sample a Bakewell pudding (yes it's different from a Bakewell tart).
    Today we said goodbye to our wonderful hosts and drove into York to catch the train back to London. The Viking museum of Jorvik is fascinating and the 'Shambles' is unbelievably quaint and cute.
    Tomorrow I get to experience the great British railway system up close and we will be visiting Kings Cross station and Platform nine and three quarters ...
