We were very happy with our room and our welcome: the free parking was a real boon and it was only a short walk into York. Lots of little extras in our room and bathroom, plenty of different teas and coffees too: it was possible to hear our neighbours in the next room but nothing too intrusive, overall, a very... More

The overall decoration of our room, the welcome we received, breakfast and the range of refreshments available in our room were all above the official star rating. Sited within easy walking distance of the Minster, city etc and... More

Staff are excellent and so is the breakfast. But for us we had the triple suite and there was a damp smell from the bathroom wasn't very nice and also the bed linen was coloured as was the towels. Sorry not for me

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!
