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.
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.
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.

... butterflies, bees and birds were plentiful and varied. Some of the butterflies insisted on landing on the path in front of us so we had to try to avoid standing on them; they must have had a death wish! One small tortoiseshell butterfly led us along the path for a good while, seeming to land for us to catch up before leading us on again.

We reached the Abbey safely, dropped off our walking gear and headed off to the main entrance to enjoy a cream tea at the cafe. This was a great treat at the end of our active day.

... on a short drive to Castle Howard - one of the must see attractions! We weren't disappointed though. This is an 18th century palace (young by standards around here) , home to the Howard family for 300 years and having taken over 100 years to build.It was designed by Sir John Vanburgh. and It was badly damaged by fire in 1940 which provided an entree for the filming of Brideshead Revisited.

Overall I really love York. It had everything one needs but was not as overwhelming and populated like London. The uniqueness and quirks of the city are charming, and the numerous markets and local shops adds a nice feeling of hominess. I could definitely see myself coming back to York, hopefully for an extended period of time in the future. ...
