“Walking distance to the old town, lovely host, free parking!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We stayed at this B&B last month. It is well located in that you can walk to the old town pretty easily.
We had a room on the top floor which was nice, not an overly large room but was clean and functional and everything we needed. Plus it's dog friendly which is great!
There is a really decent sized car park out back which is great for being able to park the car.
Breakfast was lovely, a good selection and lovely breakfast room. The host and the girl serving breakfast were both very nice and friendly.
The host was happy to talk through directions to the town and things to do in town.
Would recommend this B&B to stay if visiting York.

Pam and Tony are lovely lovely hosts, very friendly and so helpful - and they cooked us the most amazing breakfasts! Our room was great, plenty of space and a good en-suite bathroom. Lots of DVDs and games for the guests to use. We enjoyed our complimentary Yorkie bars and lots of beverages in the room. The B&B is very central to all that York has to offer - only a 5-10 minute walk from the shops, Minster and Rail Museum. Nice big car parking area and they were happy for us to leave our car there after we checked out, so we could spend our final day in York without worrying about paying for a public car park. We shall definitely be going back to Apple House!

Room Tip: We were at the back of the guesthouse, closer to the railway line, but the trains didn't run at...

We have just returned from a two night stay at Apple House highly recommended excellent location 5 mins from railway station, plenty of eateries minutes from the guest house nice walk of 10-15 mins to the city. Bus Stop right outside. The spread at breakfast certainly gave us a good start to the day. Thanks to Pam, Tony and the girls we would certainly stay again.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back have a good view of the trains in and out of York station

What a really lovely review - thanks so much. So pleased you enjoyed your stay here. Room 7 and Room 6 are very popular rooms amongst the train loving community. Super views of the railway and the new signal control tower. We look forward to seeing you again

Extremely warm welcome! Pam came out to meet us and took us straight to our room. Lovely room - quite spacious and the bathroom was extremely generous! Our room was warm and comfortable with a tv. Some snacks were provided which is always a nice gesture. Breakfast was delicious and the waitress was very friendly and helpful. This aspect of the stay could not have been better. 15 minutes at most to walk into town, just enough to build up an appetite before tea! Would definitely recommend!

just returned from a two night stay, at this lovely B&B. We parked the car in the B&B's car park and didnt use the car until we sadly had to leave. We stayed in the family room, it was a lovely room with lots of space............ the chocolate in the room for the children was very appreciated ! The breakfast was very good served by very friendly staff. We walked into the centre , stopping in some nice pubs on the way. Will be going back.

We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. Room 2 is a fab room for families and is extremely popular. When in York you have to have a Yorkie Bar. I'm not sure Tony would be so generous as to give them all to the kids!! We mysteriously get through far too many Yorkie Bars in this house!!!!!!Thanks again

We stayed for 2 nights for our 42nd wedding anniversary in York. Pam & Tony were very welcoming and made us feel at home. We discussed their feral cat and compared our similar cat experience. The accomodation is excellent and the breakfast more than enough. The young lady serving breakfast was so bright and cheerfull and could not do enough for the guests. The location is ideal with just a 10 minute walk in to the centre of York. The car park at the rear is perfect and the owners allow you leave your car on your final day if you want to spend it in town before you go home.
We will recommend The Apple House to any of our friends when they are going to York.

Thank you very much for writing a review about your stay at The Apple House. We are so pleased you enjoyed your two day break and all that York has to offer. It is such a lovely city and we are very lucky to live here. Need to get Little Mo off to the vets - assistance could be required!!

Stayed at Apple House for a few nights and I cannot recommend this enough...First off, so close to the central train station, and Pam will even give you a shortcut to the station via the back yard of the B & B. Lovely, cosy, very comfortable beds...wonderful breakfast spread, enough to suit any palate to be honest, from healthy to hearty with a full English Breakfast. The best bit though is the hospitality of Tony and Pam...they greet you when you first arrive and at breakfast and could not be any friendlier if they tried, although I'm sure they can! So warm, welcoming, apt to tell some hilarious stories of the B and B's past...just wonderful, would recommend it to ANYBODY wishing to stay a few days, or week in York!

Room Tip: for 2 people looking for separate beds, use the Gala Room, room 4...that was the one we stayed in...
