    Historical Traveler Reviews Warrens York

    Lovely place

    from

    I am currently staying at Warrens Hotel in York and I am writing this

    review from their Internet Terminal. I have been able to keep up to date

    with my family and business without having to find an Internet cafe

    because they have it in their hotel and it is free. They ask you to make a

    donation in a box which goes to Charity.

    The room is lovely, spacious and very clean, ours with a SuperKing-size

    bed and all the normal facilities, drinks, trouser presses, TV (only 5

    channels!).

    The breakfast is very good and fresh, with Fruits and cereals followed

    by a full cooked breakfast.

    We had an Evening meal last night which was tasty ( you have to order

    before 12:00 as they buy all the produce fresh. Linda (My wife) wanted

    to try a Sheppards Pie, it was not on the Menu but they cooked it any

    way. I had Lamb Shank.

    The hotel is great and we do not have to drive in the City because they

    have a car park. Really helpfull owners and so friendly, we have seen

    things that were not in the guide book because of what we have been

    recommended, we would love to come back here one day.

    This hotel is like a breath of fresh air.

    Relaxing, romantic break

    from

    Stayed at Warrens in York, booked a Four Poster room, arranged for a bottle of Champagne for arrival. We had a perfect weekend, possibly because I could leave the car in the car park and walk everywhere, most of the museums are within 10 minutes walk, restaurants and bars are closer.

    Lovely room, lovely breakfast surprisingly they have a bar and serve evening meals and snacks, but they dont seem to advertise it, we ate there the day we arrived and it was good.

    We really liked this place, bit of a find actually!

    Most surprising

    from

    What a find! Friendly, clean, accommodating and competatively priced.

    My wife and I have just had a three night stay at the Warrens and it was great. My wife had surprised me by pre-ordering Champagne and Chocolates for our arrival, we had also booked a Kingsize bed, it actually was a Super Kingsize and gave me the best nights sleep I have ever had away from home.

    Breakfast was lovely, you sit in the conservatory and can help yourself to the cold buffet and then have a full Yorkshire breakfast afterwards, I have alergies to wheat and our hosts went out to buy food specially for me...nobody has ever done that before when we have stayed away.

    The City centre is about 5 to 8 minutes walk, unless you choose to walk in via the Bar Walls which takes longer but is worth it. Trust me you do not want to drive around York, it is a nightmare! We parked our car in the Hotel Car Park and that is where it stayed until we went home.

    I will be back to York and when I do I will stay at the Warrens.

    A Little Disappointed

    from

    We were just there over the Easter holiday. The hosts are very nice and accommodating and clearly they have a lot of work to do running this place themselves with a little help from family. However, Warren's Guest House was a little disappointing in that it was located further away from the city center than we would like to be. It was more than a 15-20 minute walk and we're fast walkers. At night (before the time change) it was a little scary to be on the streets and no one around or an occasional homeless person. The B&B room was okay nothing fancy. The one thing that was a bit of a surprise was that they are very frugle with their soap. They gave us a sample (tiny!) size piece of soap to use for both the sink (which was in the room) and the shower. When I asked for more soap we only got one extra little bar. The next day we went to Marks & Spencer and got a proper bar of soap. Maybe they assume you bring your own. The traditional English breakfast was ordinary nothing to rave about. There were no little extras or choices like muffins, or brown toast instead of white or maybe offer potatoes instead of beans once in awhile. We will probably try another place that is closer. One plus was they are close to Melton's Restaurant, which is a place to go for that wonderful dinner you want to have - expensive however. We also went to Blue Bicycle again another fabulous restaurant. For lunch we went to Melton's, Too (a partner of Melton's) and it too was good but much more informal and perfect for lunch.

    Flying visit.

    from

    We didnt intend staying over in York as we only came over for a days shopping but dropped on this lovely B&B quite by accident.

    The rooms are nicely decorated, clean and fresh, hosts very welcoming and the food was spot on. We will be back again, next time with more than a toilet bag for a longer stay.

    Thank you for a wonderful night.

    Loved the place!

    from

    We have had a wonderful short break at Warrens in York.

    We booked a Four Poster room, arranged for champagne and choclates for our arrival and had a fantastic 3 nights.

    Warrens is only a short walk from the City Centre some of the best restaurants are in the vicinity. The welcome was great, the ambienece was wonderful and we will be back at Christmas for another romantic break. Thank you!!

    Good place for a family stay

    from

    We enjoyed our recent stay at the Warren's guesthouse. My family of 4 was very comfortable in their family room which had a double bed and 2 singles. The guesthouse was very convenient for walking into York city center. We would return to Warren's.

    Simply the best

    from

    We had a beautiful stay. Warrens is decorated to the highest standard, there is an Oak panelled reception and lounge area, leading on to a large and bright conservatory where we ate breakfast. Our room was well appointed with four poster bed and views toward the Minster. We were very suprised at what we got for our money...we have paid a great deal more at other hotels and received a lot less for our money...we will be back!!

    Warrens great place great welcome great breakfast

    from

    We stayed at the Warrens last year and had the best time ever. We booked for 2 days and stayed for 5 days. Beautiful Old City, ancient walls, quaint museums, very good restaurants...surprisingly for England. Warrens' rooms were large and comfortable, breakfast is served in a beautiful conservatory and the sitting room is wood pannelled. It is quieter than other most hotels this close to the city (5mins walk to the walls and museums) we paid 55 for our room and it was better than some places we have paid double that price. Richard and Jenny know all the City's history, and what they dont know Richard makes up. Simply wonderfull.

    The warmest welcome

    from

    We have had a wonderfull time at Warrens in York. Our hosts Richard and Jenny were great. They told us the best places to visit in the few days we were there. Our room was the biggest we have stayed in in the UK...(most British Guest House rooms are much smaller than at home). We were recommended by friends who stayed last year, freshly cooked breakfasts, a car park and 5 minutes walking distance to the City Center. It felt like a home from home!

    ... lost count of the number of howdo's and orright's as we passed folk! We walked over the gently rolling Urra, Farndale, and High Blakey Moors, one massive expanse of wind swept heather. What a lonely eerie place it would be in the winter mist. Along the way we saw grouse, grazing sheep spread sparsely, a few rabbits and small birds. In no time at all we were approaching Blakey and our B&B. The Lion Inn has been a welcome site to weary travellers for nearly 500 ...

It can be accessed from a narrow bitumen road so the tourist can get up there without burning a single kilojoule. Climbing up those hills afterwards with a belly full of scone and tea was hard work....it was!!!! The third and final climb took us through the Wain ...

    Our primary purpose was to delve into the Viking history of York and York boasts a renowned Viking facility known as the Jorvik Centre. We signed up the kids for a Viking 'Dig' as well. The facility was quite excellent with a glass floor above an actual Viking settlement's ...

    Hi everyone!

    Since our last entry we've been making the very best of some lovely sunny weather.

    On Monday we had the day in Lincoln (Mum, Dad, Nico, Simon, Leanne, Lauren, Alice and I). It was cool but sunny and we were able to visit the Castle, taking in a guided tour, a walk around the Castle walls and a viewing of the Magna Carta which now lives in a purpose-built vault to preserve it for generations to come. There was a great film telling you all the history of ...

The York City Wall is illustrated at Pic 12. One of our party did a circuit of almost the entire wall. Guess who? Fountains Abby, Pics 13-16, was founded in 1132 and certainly isn't restored. It is certainly the best surviving example of monastic life in Britain and we marvelled ...
