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!

Our holidays always seem to begin at Wetherspoons! Got dropped off by the in laws at the train station to start our adventure! And my bestie called in to see us off! Thanks so much dawn!! Pint of Guinness before the train to Manchester airport! We are so excited! And a little bit nervous to be fair. Not just for the 15 hour (!) flight either! It's such ...
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!

Next year, the school will celebrate, wait for it ..... 400 years!!!!!! I didn't get to even see the school - next time :-) The story goes that King James Grammar wanted to acquire the Knaresborough cricket club grounds, which ...
... having dinner tonight. I don't think that we will starve at all with the amount of food we have been eating.
Tonight we are going to hopefully have an early one. The last few have been really late and I am still getting up at 6-6.30am, so I think I need some beauty sleep.
Until tomorrow... Enjoy the photos. Dad, I will send you some separately too.
Love Brooke & Mal
... ill-fitting door that the cold wind was blowing in through.
After descending from the tower and coming back through the gate (still with its portcullis) we took a taxi to get back home. Fish and chips for tea tonight because despite the trendy locale, there aren't many actual restaurants for dinner. We ate at one last night, and the other is a get-dressed-up-to-go-out-to-dine really expensive one. So, no.
See you tomorrow in Scotland!
