Just back from a lovely 2 night stay with the other half. Karen, the owner was friendly welcoming, and always helpful. Our room (Room.no3) had the four poster bed, en suite, it was well spaced, full of character and full of great personal touches, it was also warm, clean and comfortable. The morning breakfast was delicious and plentiful, compliments to... More

A pleasant, short stroll from the city centre, Acer Guest House was the clean and friendly with the most delicious breakfast. I've read reviews where people have said about the room being small; maybe, but it has everything you need and a little more. All the little touches (variety of tea, coffee etc, jelly beans & haribos to nibble on)... More

Thank you for this wonderful review of The Acer. Nothing on earth would posses me to enter 4 in a Bed; I have been asked for the last three years running by the TV company which makes the program to compete. The contestant's comments are highly edited and they are asked leading questions by the crew to engender bad feeling... More

Went to visit York and stayed at this fantastic guest house. Karen (the lady who runs it) was very friendly and I'm impressed with the effort she and others have put into it. Its cosy and warm and felt very homely. The guest house even gave us a map of York with key places marked out which was very helpful.... More

How wonderful that you found us to be so friendly and the guest house to be cosy and warm. The dining room was indeed a little jammed up the weekend you were here. We were fully booked, everyone came down to breakfast at exactly the same time and we had two guests dining who were a little selfish in spreading... More

I stayed here in July last year for a couple of days. After spending a great amount of time looking at well known yet overly priced hotels, a friend spotted The Acer and I decided to give it a try . The place has a homely feel as soon as you walk in through the door (in comparison to 'establishment'... More

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.

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.

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.
