The apple house, is the highest quality guest house for a cheap price. The breakfast it self worth the price of one day payment. A very nice staff you i felt that i am in my family house especially, Pam. And Pam please forgive me about the apple i takes it from the bueatiful garden (Omar).

Thank you Omar for writing a review for The Apple House and also for checking in early at our request. We really did appreciate it. We look forward to you returning with your family and you can take as many apples as you need. We have a large basket on the reception desk for guests to help themselves!

We recently stayed in a family room for a couple of nights in August. The rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable, and we liked the addition of a a tv with DVD player - AND DVDs to borrow! The owners are very easy to get along with and helpful with maps, advice, directions, etc. Worth noting there is a large carpark to the rear with a lockable gated entry. Easy walk into the city from here and York itself is very worth a visit with loads to do. we will definitely go back and stay here again.

We stayed as a family of four. The Apple House is very near the train station (very convenient since we arrived by train), and it's very easy to walk to the center of York. We were warmly welcomed by Pam, and the breakfasts were made to order and delicious. A lovely place to stay!

Having stayed at the Apple House last year, we had no hesitation in booking in again this year.

As last time - a very warm welcome by Pam and Tony, and made to feel welcome throughout our stay.

The room was great, the car was perfectly safe in the car park at the rear, breakfast was gorgeous too!

All-in-all, a great stay - we will be back again!

Thank you!

Ian & Emma

Hubby & I stayed here for 3 nights recently & woud definately recommend to anyone staying in York. About a 10 min walk into the city & a few mins walk to bus stop for open top tour bus aswell as other local things to do. First time in York & can't wait to go back & would certainly consider a return to Apple House. Pam & Tony (and other staff) were both very pleasant & very helpful. Breakfast will certainly fill you up until lunchtime.

The stay was absolutely wonderful. The twin room was to a good standard (basic but very clean). The bathroom was light, airy and very well kept. The little extras such as Tea, Coffee and Water where very welcome and after a long drive enjoying a coffee and a chocolate bar was terrific.
Parking is available at the rear of the house which in my opinion is priceless.
The breakfast provided had a very good selection from fresh seasonal fruit (strawberries/blueberries) to cereals and various condiments, and even though I usually shy away from breakfast sausages this one was so good I had to make an exception here. There was not a tinned tomato in sight. All was fresh and tasty, ready to face the long day of sightseeing.
The walk into town took all of 10 minutes and from there everything was within easy reach.
Providing there is any chance of being hungry later Betty's Tearoom is excellent and even though queuing is part of the experience the food was very nice (just stay clear of the £20.00 pound option of scone, sandwich and mini cakes). It is much more enjoyable and better value for money to order separate dishes of scones, speciality sandwiches, their super tasty ice-cream etc to share.
Also (unless you like the dark) the basement is not the most attractive place to have your afternoon tea. Thankfully when the waitress announces the availability of a table they are not offended if you ask to be seated upstairs.
From this wonderful B&B it is easy to explore Harrogate (more shopping and sightseeing), Masham (for a spot of Ale in their brewery - fabulous) and the Wensleydale Area.
The host is very knowledgeable and will also set you up with recommendations for the day, very helpful.
Ahhh, one thing regarding the room. Being in a room at the front brings with it a very busy road with traffic starting early, ambulances included it can get very noisy. Closing the window would probably help but in the summer this is less of an option.
One easy solution though - take earplugs. I always travel with them and slept very sound indeed.

Room Tip: A room at the rear of the property would be nice and quiet.
