I really enjoyed staying at Carol's place. Carol is a very generous, interesting and helpful person and an excellent cook. Probably best suited to people looking for a quiet place who don't mind being a little out of the centre of town.

Carol is a very nice lady! She took good care of us! Location is good, not so far from York station. Room is clean and decorations are special. Worth staying here!

Carol's place was a great stay and she went above and beyond for us, including cooking breakfast for us each day and then also cooking dinner for all the guests staying there, not to mention toasting our honeymoon! Not only that, but she did our clothes washing as well, provided us with free entry passes to the York Minster and engaged us in some great conversations. Although it was a bit far to walk to the city centre, Carol directed us to the bus stop at the end of the street and informed us of which bus to catch and where to get off.

Carols place was great, very clean and well maintained. Fairly close to central York and she provided me with many resources to learn about York and its history

Our stay with Carol was incredibly comfortable, homely and hospitable. Carol greeted us with homemade soup and curry upon arrival which was delicious - and much appreciated after a long evening of travel! Carol goes out of her way to be helpful including lending us York Cards for access to many York attractions. I would highly recommend for great conversation, a comfortable stay and delicious breakfasts. Thank you!

What a find! Staying with carol really made york for us. From the moment we crossed her threshold she made us feel so welcomed and special. Carol is an amazing lady. Thoughtful, kind , interesting and extremely generous in her time and care. Carol cooked for us a nourishing , yummy evening meal and we shared an evening of chat and storytelling. Her own insight into life, politics and the world we live in was so genuine , passionate and real. She was more than helpful in giving us tips on getting the best out of york and beyond. Indeed , we put some items on our itinerary that we wouldn't have known about because of her knowledge. Her home is lovely, warm, comfortable and inviting. It couldn't be easier to get into town as the bus stop is down the road 2 mins. If you are looking for a lovely, happy home, with an exceptional host, look no further. Carol is one of the best hosts I've come across and I wish her every happiness in her airbnbing and in life.
