Historical Traveler Reviews Warrens York
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
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
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!
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
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.
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!
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
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
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
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
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!

... the skiing was amazing !!! When we stopped for lunch (lasagna) I left Donna in charge of my skis to find a seat when I turned around I saw one of my skis whizzing down the piste followed by the other one. It came to rest next to a mountain hut and it took me 10 minutes floundering in waist deep snow digging it out !! All the while Donna just laughing her head off ...
Why is it that when you need to get up to go somewhere and you set the alarm you always wake up just before the alarm goes off I had set the following for 4am - mobile phone alarm - television alarm - wake up call !! At 3:43 I woke up so just as I got into the shower world war three broke out and every alarm known to man went off - good morning Donna !!! Lol !! 1/2 hour later and we were at ...
... we were fortunate enough to have a guide who worked in the coal mines himself and we got to see the mines 140 meters underground. The mines were cold and dark and the tunnels were very narrow. It was very interesting to hear how everything worked down in the mines and our guide was good at explaining what happened back when they were in use. I didn't quite get everything he said though because of his thick accent, but it was very authentic.
After the tour, we went back to ...
... The Flying Scotsman, City of Truro, Evening Star, The Bullet Train. My favourite part is the warehouse which is a treasure trove of railway artefacts. Lots of models of trains and steam ships made by apprentices back in the day, dinnerware used on the first class sleeper trains. Tomorrow we are off to see York Minster and the Castle Museum, and cake at ...
Finally a day where I didn't have to get up at sparrowcrack. Today we have a day in York to do what we like.
We are staying just outside the city gates and about a 10 min walk into the very centre of the city. First stop for us is Cliffords Tower, a norman tower built in the round sitting atop a large grassed mound. It was built about 1070, or thereabouts, can't remember exactly and don't have my notes with me at the ...
