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

Lovely. Everything is up to expectations if not better. Room was spacious, better than 5 star and exceptionally well maintained. Breakfast does not disappoint and even the sausage is tasty. Lounge and reception area is incredible only beaten by the warm welcome received by the owners. Only one word describes this superb B&B. Special!

We stayed here for one night; two adults, one child (13). We arrived late the greeting from the 'owner' was very much appreciated. We had a great room, really clean and a lovely modern, if small, bathroom. The breakfast selection was very good, service was friendly and efficient. Well recommended if you're visiting York.

Excellent accommodation with extremely helpful and very professional staff. Wonderful award winning breakfast served up in a very friendly environment. Within easy walking distance of city, but also close to bus stop. Lovely little park close by and free car parking on site.

Our stay was ok, very compact in terms of space. Clean, good tea/coffee/shower facilities. Nice walk to the town. Our welcome wasn't great, but sufficed. Tv was slow, and the bed post blocked the view. Breakfast was nice, good selection. Wouldn't say a 4star as we've had beautiful 4star! But a good 3!

The Ascot house is pleasantly decorated. The shower and bathroom facilities were excellent. Breakfast was delicious and well prepared. The hosts were eager to help and the location was very convenient to town. My only complaint was the bed wasn't very comfortable.
