Response from John:
We only offer private rooms, not the whole house. That is clear. The rooms have A/C and sound proof windows, but you left them open! I am sorry you didn't read the description. My 5 star status will recover from your visit eventually.

John and Branwen were brilliant hosts and made me feel very welcome in their home. It was very nice to arrive to a cup of tea and homemade scones. The rooms are lovely and clean and the house is very nicely decorated. The breakfast was delicious! I would definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting York.

My stay at the Ivy House was absolutely fabulous. It is a bit outside of York, which is just what I wanted; the ability to go into a city but a quiet house to return to. John picked me up at the bus station, and returned me there at the end of my stay. They were quick to offer suggestions of places to visit and how to get there. The breakfast was always delicious and fresh. The rooms are clean and cozy. John & Branwen are genuine and kind. They made my stay in England comfortable, I am happy to have met them and I was sad to leave.
