We stayed in the Ascot House for one night on our way down from Scotland and were not disappointed. Parking is at the side of the house and is limited. We were greeted by the owner and given the key to a room on the first floor at the front of the house. Initially I was a bit concerned that... More

I stopped here a few years ago and must say it was fantastic, very friendly on arrival and during your stay. I stopped here when my partner and I first started going out and we still say that one day we will return. Food, rooms and the service was top draw.

The rooms were very nice, but did require us to climb the stairs. the hosts were very helpful and gave us some great ideas and tips for sightseeing. Wifi and a... More

My husband and I stayed here for three days in late August. The building is gorgeous! Stained glass throughout, especially the large stained glass window in the staircase! The breakfast room was charmingly decorated as well, light and airy. Our room was just lovely. The bathroom was well appointed with an excellent shower and fluffy towels. The hotel is located...

Really nice guest house just outside York city centre. Friendly, traditional, great breakfast and family run. Would recommend to anyone coming to historic York. The city itself is amazing and the people are just as warm and friendly. Easy to get a bus just outside into town and taxis are cheap too!

A short walk from the city centre, Ascot House provided a comfortable stopover. Contrasting with the traditional and old fashioned reception, our room had a contemporary look matched by the smart en suite toilet and shower cubicle. Access to free wi-fi and parking were welcome. Staff were welcoming and helpful and the breakfast well prepared.

The Wood family have been offering B+B in this grand house, that once was home to two Lord Mayors of York, for some time, and they know how to do it very well. Indeed there is always one member of the family on duty, day and night. But although you are assured of a friendly welcome, they are not over-familiar,... More

Beautiful hotel, lovely and clean. .. we had bedroom right at the top of the house. Decor just beautiful, clean bathroom, just perfect. Pillows a little lumpy but bed was comfortable. Breakfast delicious, girls who served very attentive and busy. Would recommend and would definitely stay again! Well done Ascot House

We stayed one night at Ascot House. The place looked a bit dated on arrival but the room turned out to be very nice with a modern and well designed bathroom. The breakfast was good. The service was a bit cold hence the 4 star rating. The location is convenient (20 minutes walk to the centre).

This is the sort of hotel that Americans love! It is an ornate Victorian villa with pretty gardens at the front and a carpark at the back. The décor is very traditional, with lots of chintz, china, velvet chairs etc. allover. Our room just off Reception was fine with good beds and linens, TV, tea and coffee making etc. The... More
