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.

My sister and I spent a few days visiting York. Amber house is within walking distance of the train station, as well as the old city. It's a well cared for quiet place, with a lovely retro style, very comfortable and well equipped (including free wifi!) Breakfast was generous, and as vegetarians we were well looked after. The hosts obviously... More

We are regular visitors to York, and this is our first visit to Amber House, and wow what a super place this is.

The place looked and smelt fresh and was spotlessly clean, it... More

Stayed here for one night. This is our 8th time in York and this was the best B and B we have stayed in. Comfy bed, spotless room, good location , friendly owners and lovely breakfast. York was always perfect. Very Christmassy and excellent choice of restaurants and pubs.
