B+B York Review | BEST York Bed and Breakfast (With Parking)

BB York B+B York - Bed & Breakfast York

B+B York surprisingly enough is a Bed & Breakfast in York City Centre. There were a couple of reasons that B+B York stood out to me. The B&B has 26 rooms, so a lovely size for a place to stay in York. But the main reason I picked this accommodation over others was that this York B&B included parking (FREE parking!)

My Experience at B+B York

Check-in at B+B York

Check-in time from 14.00 | Check-out time 11.00

I had phoned up the day before to ask what time I could leave my car since I wanted to make the most of my weekend in York. The lovely lady on the phone was very helpful, she said I could leave my car any time from 11.00 in the B&B car park but to pop in for a car permit when I arrive.

I arrived about 12 noon, popped in the pick up my car permit and had a warm welcome from the lady on reception. She offered me useful tips for things to do and also gave me a map of York.

After my day exploring York I checked in to my B&B about 17.00. I was given a mini-tour of the facilities, including the breakfast room and bar area before being shown personally to my room.

Checking into my room I was impressed by the simple but modern style of the room, matching cushions and curtains tie the room together. There are personalised B+B York sweets on the pillows too, along with a handy information pack with places to visit in York and top things to do 🙂

There’s an en-suite bathroom, with a large shower. There’s also a note to remind guests staying more than one night to re-use their towels where possible.

Breakfast at B+B York

Breakfast at B+B York was a buffet style, which you could help yourself to, different juices, danishes, yoghurts plus mini jam, Nutella and honeypots. They also have a coffee machine which you can help yourself to drinks, not just during breakfast but throughout your stay.

You then have the option to select a cooked breakfast from the menu, I picked the ‘Big Breakfast’, which you can see from the photo below. Maybe a few too many beans for me but the most important thing is a runny poached egg, which it was!

Other cooked breakfast options included eggs Benedict and a 3-egg omelette.

At the hot drinks station, there are takeaway cups so you can have a tea or coffee to go too!

B+B York Overall Thoughts

My room at B+B York, UK

During my time in York, staying at the Bed and Breakfast – B+B York, I had a comfy and relaxing night’s sleep. The bed and pillows were good quality and the walls were soundproof, I didn’t hear anyone else in neighbouring rooms or banging doors. I began to wonder if anyone else had checked in but at breakfast, there were lots of other guests so the B&B seemed full!

Would I stay at B+B York again?

Yes, I would be happy to stay at B+B York again. Both the room, B&B facilities, breakfast and location were perfect for a weekend in York.

The facilities at the Bed and Breakfast were handy if you wanted to relax in a social area, with the cosy bar area. The coffee machine was available to help yourself to drinks. After a cold night on the Ghost Walk, it was great to come back and have a hot chocolate from the machine to take to my room.

The staff were all very welcoming and friendly, which is lovely to experience as a solo traveller.

I’d be happy to recommend this B&B to anyone visiting York.
