I"m planning to stay in York for 3 days in July with 2 other family members. No vacancies at: Hedley House Hotel, Abbeyfields, 23 St. Mary's, Minister View, Crook Lodge B & B, St.Raphael Guesthouse,& Bootham Guesthouse. Any ideas? We would like to be as close to Bootham/Minster area as possible.
Take a look at the Premier Travel Inn locations at 2-4 Blossom Street . About two blocks from York rail station , across the street from Mickelgate Bar. Clean , comfortable and about a ten to fifteen minute stroll to the Minster and The Shambles . Premier is a large chain in the UK . The facilities they provide are always pleasant and reliable . We liked them .
You could try the Abbey Guest House, on the river a few minutes' walk from the Minster. See http://www.abbeyghyork.co.uk/. We had a good stay there a couple of years ago.
Thanks everyone for your feedback. I will check out your recommendations!
Try booking.com, I have had good luck with it.
Have fun in York, don't forget to stroll on top of the wall. Great views and fun.
We stayed at The Cavalier, 39 Monkgate, back in 2010. It was a perfect location, great breakfast, roomy, and a nice sized bath. Highly recommend it.
We stayed at the Youth Hostel, which is outside the city walls, but a very easy walk. It was clean, comfortable, quiet, with a beautiful location, nice gardens to sit it, large rooms. Two years ago we paid 25GBP per night, including buffet breakfast (they also serve dinner for around 6GBP - not great cuisine, but cheap and filling! I'd stay there again.
Thanks again for all your suggestions. We just booked a room at Airden B & B.
Try Goldsmith's BB, its a great location even if it doesn't look like it on the map.
We quite enjoyed our stay in 2004 at the Fours Seasons B&B (it's a real B&B and not at all related to the US hotel chain). For its 100,000+ population, the central part of York is quite compact and we found we could easily walk (we were then in our 60s) across the city's central part inside of 45 minutes. We had a lovely stay at the Four Seasons. Its owners are very low-key, easy-going folks and treated us to a wholly unsolicited afternoon tea in the very British garden at the end of a day's on-foot touring. In addition to the must-visit York Minster, try to visit Betty's tea and pastry emporium for the altogether best scones in Christendom or any other dom of your choice.

On a tour 2 years ago I stayed at a Best Western. I think it was called Monksgate. it was a great place and great location.
I would stay there again if I get the chance...good size rooms!!,
