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.

We were looking for somewhere to stay for the Tour de France and I'm so glad that we happened across Amber House. 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

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
