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

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.
