Expert review of Four Seasons Bed & Breakfast
Another of my choice b&b options in the city, locally born and bred owners Bernice and Steve have a good eye for the details and some deft touches with interior design. It’s not cheap but there’s a lot on offer here including a substantial breakfast, free parking and free WiFi. Not too far from the city’s heart, this former head teacher’s residence built during the reign of Victoria is set in a quiet, tree lined grove.
Just off the busy Bootham route running north out of the city, it takes me around 10 minutes to gently walk from the centre of York to the doorstep though I think walking from the station might be a step too far and would recommend a taxi instead. Those arriving by car can luxuriate in having that rare York commodity, free private parking.
Decorated in lavender (a colour I’m not drawn to) and creams, the four en suite rooms, named after the seasons, are light and spacious and with comfy king sized beds or larger. Flat screen TV’s, some considered extra touches on the hospitality tray and fresh flowers also add extra joy to the stay. Bathrooms are pristine, well lit and come equipped with White Company products. All rooms are lovely but my choice would be Winter, for its three windows, large size, separate roll-top bath and lack of lavender.
Greys, creams and browns dominate the colour scheme and much of the original architectural features have been kept and complement the considered collection of furnishings and fittings.
The morning sun floods the breakfast room adding extra warmth to the full English breakfast, while those watching their waist can opt instead for a buffet choice of juices, fruit, fresh local bread, pastries and Yogurts.
TV and radio in the rooms together with that really nice touch, WiFi connectivity throughout the house.
Lovely hosts here, warm, welcoming without being too obtrusive.
A popular choice for couples and families on leisure visits as well as attracting some business visitors.
It’s not cheap though it does include breakfast. A 2.5% charge is added when paying by credit card.
