Thanks Karen for a lovely stay,fab room, fab, breakfast and fab free parking,will be sure to book with you again.Easy walk into York and the race course. Many places wanted a minimum of 2 nights just because it was race week and the weekend but Karen allowed us to book for 1 night so thanks again for faclitating us.

It was a pleasure to meet you all - it's always worth asking for a one night stay on a weekend as you never know! The Acer is in a fantastic location for visiting York and the Racecourse and, as you say, FREE parking too. Thank you, Karen. More

We splashed out and booked the four poster room at the front of the house for 2 nights. The décor was delightful with a luxurious 'Art Deco' feel. It was nice to have a comfortable sofa in the room and it was exceptionally well equipped complete with bath robes, bottles of wine in the room available to purchase, and everything... More

Thank you so much for this fabulous review. Darlings, why did you order your breakfasts the night before if you didn't want to? I am sorry. I do ask guests to do so if they don't mind (it saves wastage, keeps the prices of the rooms down, means that the food is served fresh and piping hot and it really... More

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

OUTSTANDING is a tremendous accolade; thank you very much indeed. I particularly like your suggestion in your review that guests book direct with me. Booking direct is much appreciated and it is the best way for guests to obtain that free upgrade to the 4 poster room. Karen. 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.

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
