We had the double room 5 on the third floor, which we found to be too small for a comfortable stay, even though we were only staying overnight. The ensuite facilities were also very cramped, but the bed was comfortable and the tea and coffee facilites good The breakfast was excellent, but I do not like to pre-order your choice... More

More lovely comments on my Award winning "excellent" breakfasts! I am a little confused by several factual inaccuracies in this review - The Acer does not have a third floor, York has no restaurant called The Rice Bowl and by the guests pre ordering their breakfasts when they did not want to do so. The beds at the guest house... More

Spontaneous weekend that was booked 3 days before we intended to visit and we were very lucky to get a room. Over the phone Karen (the owner) was lovely, friendly and very accommodating. She explained the facilities and the distance from the centre of York (which is a 10 minute stroll so perfect really!). Me and my partner had the... More

We stayed here for one night for Valentines. The guest house is very conveniently located for York town centre and was a pleasant short walk into town. We were quickly checked in and shown to our room by Karen. There was free parking right outside the door which was great. The room itself was lovely and clean, plenty of complimentary... More

I am delighted that you found me to be so friendly! My Award winning breakfasts are absolutely excellent but I have no idea where you got the idea that I use local produce. This is not a claim I make anywhere, or to anyone, at all. I use Waitrose home delivery - excellent quality, excellent service and I don't have... More

We stayed here in the four poster room for valentines and it was fantastic. The room was comfortable, and clean, the owners were friendly and the breakfast was just right. It is about a 20 minute slow walk from the centre of town and there are a lot of restaurants, pubs and cafes along the way. If you need somewhere... More

We stayed for 3 nights in mid-January. Everything spotlessly clean and furnishings are very tasteful . Excellent breakfast. Karen is a very helpful host and we will definitely be back before too long.

I look forward to seeing all three of you again. I trust that your visit to York's fabulous Designer Outlet Shopping Centre on your way home was successful.

Noted as 4 star and definitely is! 15 mins walk from city centre. Free parking. Clean linen, robes, sweeties and usual tea and coffee etc in your room. Honesty box for mini bar, which we didn't use but was there. Fantastic choice at breakfast and the most accommodating host definitely will be back!
