Reviews - The Old Vic Guest House

Great Place to stay - Rating 5/5

I have stop at the Old Vic in the past, so was my first and only choice this time. You will get a very warm welcome in a warm friendly location.The B/Fast are first class and are very filling, and home cooked. Any time I am working in York the Old Vic is the place for me, I would recommend to anyone that wanted good value for money.

Romantic night away - Rating 5/5

Stayed here with the Hubby for the Christmas market. How ever we was disappointed with the market but our stay here was lovely. I seriously can not say enough good things about this lovely house. Give it a try you’d be a fool not to xxx

Always a pleasure to stay here - Rating 5/5

My mother and I stayed here for the second time and as usual enjoyed it. The hosts are attentive, and the room clean. And of course getting to give Leo a cuddle always helps!

Excellent- Rating 5/5

I have stayed here twice in the past four weeks. Once for a girlie weekend and was so impressed, I took the hubby back four weeks later for the night. My husband as well as my self are so impressed with this little hidden gem. You maybe just outside the York Walls but with the bus stop literally just around the corner and @ the price of £1 you are soon amongst the beauty and history of it all.They buses come every 10 minutes so you are never waiting long. The little vic guest house is so clean and the hosts are so welcoming it makes you sad to leave. Neil and I went to the Xmas market then decided we was going to go for a meal. We got back to change in to dinner attire and it was so warm and cosy we decided to stay in cuddle up and watch tv. It really is like home from home....oh and the breakfast is brilliant nothing is too much trouble. You really would be daft to not give this gorgeous place a try.

A weekend in York - Rating 5/5

We had two nights in The Old Vic. The owners were very welcoming. The rooms were lovely and clean, the bed very comfortable but worth getting out of for the hearty breakfast. Easy access to the city centre via a 15 minute stroll or regular bus service. We would recommend to anyone wishing a relaxing stay in York. Thanks again, we will return the next time we are in the area.

Old Vic - Rating 4/5

The guest house is based in a beautiful old building, which still contains many of its original features. I was staying in the single room, which was admittedly very small, but I was aware of this before I booked, and it came as no surprise. The room size, and the fact that the bathroom was separate (but room - dedicated) was reflected in the price.Staff were friendly and the breakfast was plentiful.I would definitely stay here again

Highly recommended - Rating 4/5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to York. The Old Vic is perfectly located for walking to the city centre and Terry and Julie looked after us very well. There is a relaxed atmosphere at the Old Vic, breakfast was a brilliant start to the day and local knowledge willingly given.We thought the bathroom in room 4 was a little tired as well as cramped and we would suggest changing the bed duvet to a king size as the one provided hardly covered the two of us. Despite the aforementioned we would happily stay at the Old Vic on our next visit to York.

A week in York - Rating 4/5

This was our first visit to York together in 25 years and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The room met our needs and the breakfast was to die for.The hotel was close enough to both the river and the city centre that we regularly walked into town that way which took only about 15 minutes! And if we didn't want to walk the no. 7 bus went from the top of the road and only costs £1 each.If wehad a beef it was the postioning of the television - we couldn't both sit in comfort on the bed to watch so one of us had to sit on the 'dining' chair in the room to get a proper view, but who goes on holiday to watch TV?

Have just completed a 4 night stay at this Guest house. Would recommend for it's comfort and convenience. Ideally placed for riverside walk (20 minutes) or bus ( 5-10 minutes ) into centre.

Friendly greeting on arrival, especially from Leo the beautiful spaniel. Within walking distance of town centre, but there's also the number 7 bus which runs every 10 minutes, and you can get from train station. Quite a few stairs but was offered help with cases. Breakfast very good. The only two things I would suggest is a full length mirror in room and a shelf for toiletries in shower. Would certainly stay again. Thank you for your lovely hospitality.

Myself and my boyfriend wanted to go on a last minute night away and I found this on the Wednesday night and stayed on the Saturday night. Couldn't have been happier with the last minute availability and price. The location was absolutely perfect, about a 20 minute walk from the centre which was lovely given that the weather was so nice. The house itself was really nice and was greeted warmly. Our room was clean and the breakfast was really tasty. Unfortunately I'd had one wine too many the night before so wasn't able to fully enjoy it!Would definitely recommend this guest house to people and would stay here again.

Enjoyed our stay! The B &B was lovely. Julie was very welcoming and friendly. The only negatives were that we could hear a little bit of news through the night in the room above of us. We would have also enjoyed having a big time scale for breakfast, but this is just preference. The breakfast was lovely! Definitely would stay again.

york gem - Rating 4/5

Just returned from a three night stay. We wanted to do york christmas market. B &B was comfortable and welcoming and Julie was friendly and helpful but not at all in your face or intrusive. Leo the dog is just adorable. York is an easy ten/fifteen minutes walk away or there is a bus that runs from the top of the road. Only bad points are these- dont expect to be able to park your car outside the b&b you may have to park some way may want to think twice about having sausage for breakfast everything else was lovely and cooked to order. All in all an enjoyable stay and would definitely return/recommend. In response to some of the critical reviews i say if u expect five star accommodation suggest u book into a five star hotel.

Although the decor and bedding was a bit tired the breakfast was good The owner and staff were very helpful and pleasant we were given an extension on our room to change for a funeral.

We chose The Old Vic as we wanted to be midway between York centre and the Racecourse as we cycle from Lincolnshire each year to attend the Cycle Rally. Safe secure cycle storage was a priority and this was very well provided for using the garage. I had room 5 and Carol had room 9. My single room didn't have en-suite but for the sake of a short flight of steps I had a Jacuzzi bathroom all to myself and a fluffy robe provided too!! BLISS after a 75 mile cycle ride!The room was very clean, pleasant and a comfortable bed too. Carol was equally pleased with her pleasant comfortable room and we were both very impressed with the excellent breakfast as well as the friendly and helpful hosts.All in all a lovely place to stay and we would definitely We love Leo the dog !!

little bit noisy - Rating 3/5

The location of the hotel was down a side road but close enough to the main road to hear some traffic noise. The alley down the side is also used for shop deliveries which was very noisy on sunday morning. The walk into town by the river was very close by and very pleasant. The room was a little small, but pretty. It had everything in it that I needed.Breakfast was between 8am and 9am which I found a little bit too tight time wise considering i had been out quite late the nights before. However the service and selection at breakfast was second to none. Top notch. There is also a beautiful dog that lives there, but it was prone to barking when the door bell rang for example

Also close to the University where our daughter is studying.Good full English breakfast with lighter alternatives at hand - cereal, fruit selection, yoghurts.

Myself and my husband very much enjoyed our stay.This is our 3rd stay and as always the room was clean and the breakfast was to a high standard.The only small thing I would say is that we had the small double room.I was a little disapointed as it would have been nice to have the larger one for a 3 night stay but it didnt spoil our trip at all and its not a criticism, more like a preference when staying 3 night or more. We will definatly stay again on our next trip to York. Thank you.

we have been to York many times as it is such a beautiful city.We booked late to stay at the old vic and we canhonestly say the price was definitely value for money.The room was clean, warming with a very comfortable bed. my wife and I feel the breakfast was the best we have ever had, all food was cooked great with fresh tea and ground coffee to finish it off. The best thing about this guest house,is the beautiful family who run it, the welcome was warm with lots of smiles along with the dog Leo rolling over, again the service during breakfast was warm and welcoming. if and when we do return tp york,there is no doubt we will be staying there again. many thanks to ian, julie , leo and there daughters (sorry cannot remember names). many thanks

Very welcoming guest house. - Rating 5/5

After staying at the establishment and having fun with the dog, we left smiling due to the sheer enjoyment we had whilst in York;however, it was the guest house which made all the difference. The place itself is very cosy and the owners are extremely lovely, also the breakfast in the morning is very nice and well prepared for those who enjoy a good hearty English breakfast. The room is a good size and very warm if you are not a fan of the cold weather during the winter times. The ensuite is sufficient, considering there was no need to have a massive bathroom area. One of the great things about the Old Vic guest house is the location. It is a little outside of the city, but you can easily walk to the centre in a short time and the traffic noise was near enough non existent, which meant we could sleep soundly. When I return to York, you can bet I am going back to the Old Vic guest house.

Leo and his trusty assistants, Julie &Ian made us most welcome on our A4 hunting trip. The A4's were successfully shot at the NRM. Lots of excellent advice as to making our way around York including the tranquil river side walk that takes you straight into town in15 minutes. Ask about eateries and you will get many great suggestions. We met an old friend from years ago and together got to see lots of live music in the many pubs of York. The room (no. 6) is cosy, quiet &warm. Comfy beds, ensuite, and lots of tea &coffee make it a pleasure to get back to at 1 am!Breakfast, sensibly served between 8 &9 am is great, well presented in the relaxing cellar dining room. We really enjoyed our stay, excellent value for money and we will return.

I stayed at The Old Vic for a weekend and booked the single room. The room is relatively small (as described) but was warm and comfortable. There is exclusive use of a bathroom down the hall. The breakfasts were good and I had the best scrambled eggs I've ever tasted. Parking depends on how busy the street is. I managed to park just round the corner and left the car there all weekend. There is a lovely walk into York along the river which took me about 20 min. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and I would definitely recommend a stay at The Old Vic.

The service was very good too.The breakfast room looked out over the flowers in the garden;their were freshflowers in the hall also which enhanced the welcome.

The owners were so friendly and were more than happy to help and support us during our stay.My partner and I will be returning to stay here during the summer.If its a cosy B&B you require by the river, close to the attractions, friendly staff and a super breakfast. i would strongly recommend.

Pleasant couple of nights! - Rating 4/5

Thanks very much for making our stay so pleasant! Run by a very nice family who were chatty and helpful. It was a nice 15/20min walk by the river into town for a bit of sight seeing and food. Great fry up for breakfast, to get the day started off well. Stayed a couple of nights, double ensuite room. A bit retro decor but nice firm bead. Value for money. All good! Would come back if in the area. Thanks Julie!! xx

Perfect accomodation for visiting York - Rating 5/5

Very nice guest house just a short walk by the river away from the city center. The family makes a great effort to keep everything clean and to make the best of your stay. The room is very clean and the breakfast was very good especially they offer not just English breakfast but also fruits, joghurt and cereals. I would recommend it to everybody who likes to go to York and have a nice accomodation.

Fantastic stay - Rating 4/5

My Husband &I had a fantastic stay at the Old Vic guest house. It is a lovely friendly family run hotel, nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was fabulous each morning thanks Julie:) and Leo the dog was gorgeous. Great location only 10 minutes walk to centre, buses were really regular so no problems getting into town. Loved the breakfast room as decor really cute with lots of character. On road parking, no problem getting a space. Excellent value for money. Will be recommending to all our family &friends if they should be visiting York! See you soon if we visit York again :)

Excellent stay - Rating 5/5

Our stay at the Old Vic was excellent from start to finish.Ian and Julie and their family are lovely and go out of their way to make you feel extremely welcome. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, the linen smelled lovely. The rooms have everything you need available from a hairdryer, welcome info and ironing failites right outside the door.W were also told that if we ran out of refreshments in our room just to ask for more, a first for any BB I have stayed in.If we had had a problem, which we didn't, I have no doubt we would have had it put right in a second.We came on this weekend to meet up with friends in York, the location is excellent.It gave us free parking, whee we parked easily on a Friday evening almost right outside the door.The walk into York was not even 15 minutes along the gorgeous river, we even did this in the evening no problem as it is well lit and a lovely walk with the bridge lit up.I have already recommended this B and B to some family and I know that I will be returning to stay with the children this year.There is no point looking elsewhere when the Old Vic is already perfect. Ian and Julie are fabulous at what they do.


thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review , we really appreciate it. We look forward to seeing you and your children when you return.
