My wife and I chose Amber House for a one night stopover for our brief visit to York. It was a convenient location, comfortable room with excellent ensuite. Tea facilities in the room. Free Wifi. Breakfast fine with a very good choice. The cooked breakfast is available from 8.00am. In conversation with Linda, she said that a Cereal and Toast... More

My daughter and I stayed 3 nights at John and Linda's guest house. We had the twin room which was lovely and clean. The beds were lovely and comfy and clean towels were provided every day in the shower room even though we didn't need them changed. Breakfasts were delicious and set you up for the day. Parking is right... More

My wife and I, together with our teenage daughter, spent two nights at John and Linda's guest house. Location is very handy for York's main tourist areas - we had travelled by train so were on foot! The family room was in fact a mini-suite (two rooms and bathroom) and was nicely appointed. Breakfasts very good too. Enjoyed our stay... More

I was given a 3 night stay in this B&B by my other half for a birthday present as I have always wanted to visit York. After reading the reviews on here I was looking forward to staying at the Amber House. On the day we travelled we got a phone call from the owner to say that the girl... More

We are also disappointed. Disappointed that you were unhappy with so many elements of your stay with us and yet you chose not to raise any issues with us directly, and told us everything had been OK on checking out. We place very high importance on ensuring that our guests enjoy their stay with us, and we do our utmost... More

We booked this last minute (very fortunate, as we found they had had a last minute cancellation) and we loved it. The location is great. It's very convenient for visiting the centre of York, as it's only a 10 minute walk. It's close to the train station and I suspect it wouldn't take long to walk, and cost us less... More

We stayed for a 3 night break. It's run by a really lovely couple. We had a good sized bedroom with a gorgeous en-suite. They had a good range of things on offer for breakfast and the free WiFi worked well too. There wasn't any noise from the train line either which did cross our minds when we booked, and... More

Amber House has an excellent location in York. We arrived by express bus from Heathrow and it took about 20 minutes to walk to Amber House. You walk thru the pedestrian areas of the city, so it is easy and very safe. Amber House is very comfortable and clean. We highly recommend it.
