Once you enter the premises, you are greated by a friendly lady. High trees and many number of birds surround the property. It give the guesthouse a forest, tranquil atmosphere. It is very clean, quiet and affordable. Definitely recommending it to future guests!!

I had a great experience on this lovely facility, the room was clean and everything I needed was there on the premises. Its very close to Eastgate shopping center and restaurants on Queen Street which is so cool.

We really enjoyed our stay at House on York. Very centrally located and secure. The room and the facilities/communal area was amazing! Definitely very good value for money and I'll be recommending this place to all my friends.

The accommodation was comfortable and as my mom said, it felt like a home away from home. The owner and manager were very helpful. The house has a sufficient number of activities for both the young and old. My mom was even able to have a back massage done in the comfort of our room. My only complaint was that the dishes and utensils in the kitchen could have been cleaner but that did not stop us from cooking a meal.
