We stayed at The Acer after celebrating our son's wedding at the beginning of August. From the moment we arrived Karen made us very welcome - we had phoned ahead as we were anticipating being later than expected. It wasn't a problem - Karen gave us the entry code and left our room key for collection. However on arrival Karen... More

I trust that the newly weds are safely back from Hawaii! Thank you so much for your lovely comments regarding the recently refurbished Four Poster room; the "mini moon" package represents great value for money. Self check in is indeed available at ANY time but I do much prefer checking guests in myself as it allows me to provide any... More

We stayed here for two nights to explore Oxford and were made very welcome. The room was pristine with lots of little thoughtful touches. sweets, wine, both large and small bottles, tea, coffee and biscuits. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choice. While not in the center of York, the five minute walk was pleasant, and the area being... More

Stayed at The Acer Guest House to explore YORK... It is absolutely fabulous that you found your room to be "pristine" and that you appreciated all of the little added extras I provide. The Acer is indeed located on a very quiet residential street close to the city, station and racecourse. The city and the racecourse grandstand are about a... More

Second visit to the Acer & every bit as enjoyable as the first. Rooms are spotless, stylishly decorated & have everything you could need. Karen is very helpful & accommodating, & sorted out a room for us for one night at a weekend, a rare thing. The Acer is in a lovely area, just a few minutes from the racecourse.... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here on the weekend of 19th July 2014. After hours of searching the internet I came across this small guest house.
