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!

I am so pleased that you found The Acer to be in such a great location; close to the city and racecourse with FREE PARKING! It's great that you comment that The Acer is so much more than a 4 star. We have a Silver Accolade and in fact the four poster room is of a 5 star quality. When... More

A warm and friendly welcome from Karen was a great start to our stay. We had a top floor room as requested, with ensuite shower and wc. Our room was very well kept, spotlessly clean, comfortable and warm (we visited in December). As a guest you have the added benefit of free parking, on a quiet road outside the guest... More

I didn't realise that it was Nana's birthday! Happy belated birthday. How great that a 70 year old can confirm in a review that the city really is only a 10 minute walk from The Acer. Thank you for all of your lovely comments on our cleanliness, free parking, breakfast etc. Karen. More

This is the first time I've felt able to give a 5 star review. The guest house is in a very convenient location for visiting York. On arrival we received a warm welcome from Karen who showed us to a beautifully furnished, decorated, clean and comfortable room. Lots of thoughtful touches in the room, including a tub of gummy bears... More
