Stayed at Ashley Guest House for 5 nights, we were visiting York for the Ebor horse racing meeting. We were warmly welcomed by Phil, shown to our room (The Tub) and we quickly settled in. The room was spotlessly clean, very spacious, has a lovely comfy bed and a plentiful complimentary tray. Really enjoyed our morning baths in the "Tub".... More

Everything about this bed and breakfast is perfect! It's so beautifully decorated and there's so many little details that we really loved. We arrived late and had a wonderful personalized welcome letter and homemade brownies waiting for us! We stayed in the Digs Room and loved it! The room is stunning and had a comfy bed and bathroom is so... More

We had an enjoyable 2 day stay at Ashley Guest House, which is ideal for exploring the beautiful city of York due to its close proximity to the centre. Phil made us feel very welcome and was very flexible and accommodating. Our room "The Duck" was lovely and very comfortable.

We had the smallest room which was very cosy, the ensuite was excellent. If I had to be picky I would say a hook on the ensuite door would be useful but I'm sure if I'd of asked there would of been one there within hours. Breakfast was amazing, best bacon and mushrooms I've ever had, I even ate black... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at Ashley Guest House. Phil is a wonderful host with a lovely property. Prior communications were excellent, we organised a self check in and a parking permit and information letter were left out for us making the process very easy. The house is in a residential area and a 10 minute stroll from the... More

Thanks for such a great review. Great to see that our self checkin procedure for guests who want to arrive outside our normal check in times works well and you found it convenient. Plum - defintely our most popular room and as you said its very quiet in our neighbourhood. Hope to welcome you back soon, Phil. More
