Welcome to Dairy Guest House

Address: 3 Scarcroft Road, York, YO23 1ND

Telephone: 01904 639367 01904 639367

Hotel Description

The dairy is a lovingly restored and upgraded Victorian town house, retaining its character and original features, such as stained and etched glass windows, pitch pine doors and staircase, cast iron fire grates and wonderfully ornate ceiling roses and cornices. The dairy is set around a flower-filled courtyard, with charming cottage styled rooms which offer warmth and welcome. The property was built in 1890. Originally it was a family home and joinery business. It was then purchased by the Trapp family and became a town dairy, selling milk, ice-cream and Yorkshire curd. The Dairy was sold and converted into a Guesthouse in 1978.

Enjoyable Stay In York
Good, quiet location, walking distance from train station. The house has some original features and a lovely garden. Our room was very clean, with a lovely en-suite bathroom. There are several options for breakfast.

Very Convenient Location And Hospitable Owner
We would recommend the Dairy Guest House and will book again if we re-visit York. We stayed for two nights and the room was clean and had been recently decorated also with a newly fitted ensuit. It is close to the centre being only 10 - 15 minute walk into town. The breakfast was well presented and nothing was too much trouble. A credit to the owner who was very friendly and helpful.

The Dairy is a lovely place to stay , Mike the owner is very friendly and nothing is too much for him to do for you.The food is excellent all locally sourced and cooked to your likening. The Dairy is spotlessly clean with tea and coffee in your room which is very good first thing in a morning.It is ideally located as we like racing and is only a 15 minute walk to the course and about the same to walk into the town centre.There are quite a few bars and restaurants near the Dairy if you do not want to walk far. We stay here all the time when racing it just suits us perfectly .

Fabulous Find - Don\'t Miss It!
We've just come back from a lovely stay at the Dairy Guest House. Our room (no 6) was on the ground floor, across a delightful courtyard garden. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a beautiful

modern large shower room with toiletries supplied including facial/makeup wipes. There was a large walk-in wardrobe/cupboard with lots of room for storage. Our room also had plenty of drawers for storage, a hair drier and even a pack of cards.

Our host was very helpful, carrying our bags to our room and giving us a map, and directions, into town which was only a few minutes walk away. Breakfast (ordered the previous day) was delicious and freshly cooked.

The free WIFI was fast and the room had a TV with loads of channels. Our host arranged a parking voucher for us (on-street parking is very limited without one), and it was easy to park just a few yards from the guest house.

All in all, a great find, we would most certainly recommend it and would stay there again when we go back to York.

Convenient Location Just Outside The City Walls
We enjoyed our stay with Mike at Dairy Guesthouse. The room was well cleaned by a cheery housekeeper.

Breakfast was excellent. Over 2 days I went for the full English and smoked haddock options. Both were tasty and well presented.

My small grievance would be the low water pressure from the over bath shower. Having said that I understand that room 3 is the next for a refurb so maybe this will improve. It wasn't a big negative anyway.

We would definitely stay again.

Quaint, Friendly And Perfect!
We opted for this guest house after reading the numerous great reviews about it and it did not disappoint. Before we even arrived in York, a number of emails had been exchanged between myself and the proprietor, Mike, regarding check-in procedures and I was provided with extremely detailed instructions on what to do on arrival. Once I accessed the building and proceeded to my room, I found my parking permit for outside the guest house, an information pack and a menu for breakfast on which we had to indicate our choice and leave in the dining room for the next day - that's efficiency at its best! The room (with four poster bed) was very cosy, clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was lovely too, served by Mike and his wife who couldn't have been more friendly. The location of this guest house is ideal, at just a 10-15 minute walk from the city and there is no need to worry about your car as it is parked safely for he duration of your stay. A very pleasant experience all round, highly recommended.

4 Poster
We stayed in the "King size 4 poster" room for several nights. The room overlooked the road but the secondary glazing kept most of the noise out and we were not bothered by traffic noise. The room was only just big enough for the 4 poster bed but that was not a problem. The ensuite had been built into the corner of the room and was a little cramped but clean. The water in the shower was a bit slow to drain away. The welcome was friendly and the service good. Good breakfasts made with good quality ingredients.

Nice Stay
We had a very pleasant stay at The Dairy Guesthouse in York. The owner welcomed us warmly although we were way early. The beds were fine and so was the breakfast. When we will come back to York, we surely will stay in the Dairy Guesthouse again. My children would like to add that the free wifi was great!

Best B&b In York I Stayed In
It's a quirky place, distributed over two buildings. The breakfast is more or less what you can expect from a B&B. Nothing fancy, but well done. Room was large and comfy. Only reason I didn't give it all five is the shower. It is one of those run through electrical water heaters next to the shower typical in many English homes. The throughput is not big enough to provide a really nice shower, but it's good enough and as I said not out of the ordinary (I've seen better and worse).

In York (thinking of it, make that in England) it was so far the best B&B I stayed in (so far 3) and very good value for money.

Dairy Guest House York
This is the second time we have stayed at the dairy guest house and found our hosts and stay very pleasent. It is great value for money and we will definatly be staying there again.

The only negative we have found is that we would prefer continetal quilts on the bed rather than blankets but other than that excellent!!

The breakfasts are lovely and the rooms characterful and comfortable.

Happy new year to all at the Dairy xx

Xmas Family Stay
We had a brilliant time when we stayed. The Dairy isn't far from York City Centre so had some nice little walks, also the No 7 bus to the Designer Outlet is just at the bottom of the street. Family room is basic but clean and tidy a very good size, everything you need for your stay. If something isn't there you only have to ask as the owners are lovely, friendly people.

In 1068, William the Conqueror built a motte-and-bailey castle on the present site of Cliffords Tower in York, to strengthen his military presence in the north. The tower is now the most prominant remaining part of the castle, which was rebuilt in stone in the 13th century.

The magnificent Cathedral in York, known as York Minster is the largest Gothic Cathedral in Northern Europe, renowned for containing the largest collection of medieval stained glass in England. Built in the Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular styles it is a pure classic of the period. Five hundred and eighteen feet in length, it is two hundred and forty one feet wide at the transept and its central tower rises one hundred and ninety eight feet making it the largest lantern tower in Britain. Bede records that a small wooden chapel was built on this site in 627 A.D. for the baptism of Edwin, king of Northumbria. Edwin's successor Oswald enclosed the chapel in stone and dedicated it to St. Peter, as the Cathedral in York has been ever since.
