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

We stayed here for 2 nights in November 2014. Linda and John who run the establishment are very friendly and helpful. The room was large, comfortable, and en-suite. Highly recommended would definitely stay here again

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.

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
