“Fabulous friendly excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We stayed on York for a few days to visit the railway museum and do some Christmas shopping. The apple house is very conveniently located for both. We asked for a room overlooking the railway which was happily accommodated. We were a 5 minute walk from the train station thanks to a great shortcut!
Pam was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was superb and left us full until tea!
Overall a great stay

Another great weekend welcomed by the lovely Pam!
Stayed here twice in one year as value for money, comfort and the amazing full English were all fabulous!
The Apple House is a nice leisurely 10 minute strole into town.
Rooms were nicely decorated, very comfortable and had everything you needed. Even a couple of board games and DVDs were on offer!

Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a weekend break in York!

Keep up the good work and Ill see you next year!!

Spent a great 2 night stay at the Apple House for a wedding - Pam made us feel instantly welcome and offered us a choice of 3 rooms on arrival.

We plumped for the Gala room (5) with twin beds, situated at the front, 1st floor, overlooking the main road. Being sensitive to noise and a stickler for a decent night's sleep I was pleasantly surprised that there was very little road noise at night - the beautiful sash windows were triple glazed, which kept any noise out brilliantly. In case there was any doubt, I was delighted to find a set of earplugs amongst the organic toiletries and used them just to be on the safe side - a nice touch!

The room was small but perfectly formed, we weren't there to spend oodles of time in our B&B after all! Pam pre-booked our taxi for the morning and helped us avert disaster when my fella realised he'd left his phone in the taxi - eek!

The cooked brekkie was generous - only would've liked the hash brown to be cooked for a bit longer but that's the only quibble of our whole stay!

Will definitely stay again!

Apple House is nicely located, close to the station, and to the Micklegate Bar, and thus close to the city centre.

All were very friendly, the breakfast was lovely, board games, DVDs and such like on the landing to enjoy in the room.

The room was okay, typical size for a house of that age and location, no gripes there. My only negative is that the room could have been a little cleaner in places.

Nevertheless, a good stay, and we would return - and probably will next year.

Also; It has good off-street car parking which is a massive plus in York.

The Apple House guest house is really very well appointed. The breakfast is to "die for" having a range of cereals, yogurhts, etc and the BIG APPLE fry-up! The guest house is a five minute walk from York Railway Sttation and National Railway Museum and is also within an easy, short walk to the City Wall, across the bridge and you then have a tremendous choice of visitor attractions. The Apple House also has its own private car park which is another excellent attraction to add to comfortable en-suite bedrooms and modern television and tea makingh facilities.

Room Tip: No need, all rooms are excellent
