Very friendly family run business. Fantastic location in a quiet suburban street just a 5 minute stroll from all the historic sites in the main centre of town. Warm welcome, beautiful room, clean and bright with a very comfortable large bed and a lovely en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was fantastic, a full selection of juices, yoghurts, cereals and fruit, and a... More

We were made very welcome by Linda & John Fletcher and this proved to be the ideal location for our 3 night stay in York earlier this month. The room was very comfortable, the beds the best we've slept in almost anywhere (including 5 star overseas hotels) and breakfast perfect. Parking available right outside the door and just a ten...

Just returned from 3 nights at Amber House. Really enjoyed our stay. Clean and welcoming! Location is perfect- short stroll to the centre! Free wi-fi is great too and the breakfast is plentiful- lots of choice. Would definitely recommend it!

We loved staying at Amber House! The rooms are large and gorgeous. The breakfast options were wonderful-- I had variations of the full English breakfast every day. And it is so close to the center of the historic city, yet on a quiet street. We will definitely stay there again next time we are in the area.

Friendly owners made us feel welcome as soon as we pulled up outside, parking permit given for our stay, room spotless and bright and airy. Even provided us with an early breakfast so we could get to work in time.
