Would not hesitate to return. Excellent value very good standard and well organised host and establishment.

From welcome letter to complimentary parking permit this is a well looked after and friendly b & b ran by a perfectly mannered host (Phil)

Breakfast very fresh ingredients perfectly cooked.

The final icing on the cake is the rates! aA very welcome change from the branded boxes :)..

Stayed July 2014, traveled on business

A warm welcome, local on-street permit parking, pretty rooms and an excellent breakfast. So it's a lovely place to stay. But what makes Ashley House different?

Though the owners live just down the street, this feels like - and is - a loved home: deeply comfortable ensuite rooms, books to read, CDs to borrow, and a comfortable little lounge area.

On a quiet corner in a delightful Victorian/Edwardian street just outside the walls, it's just next to 'Bishy Road' - lovely street of local shops, food outlets, coffee shops, restaurants and a wonderful hardware store. For a relaxed morning you don't even need to do the ten minute walk to the mediaeval city. [http://www.bishyroad.net]

I'd better not say too much - it'll be booked solid all year.........

Room Tip: The room over the kitchen is lovely and airy with a comfortable shower room.

booked the b and b about a week before we stayed there. had no problem. stayed 3 nights in a delightful room with a bath in it! and the toilet room was separate. was very clean and comfortable. also at the very last minute before we were leaving we asked if we could stay an extra night. Phillip was very good and put us in a different room which was also very nice for the extra night.
the breakfast is served between 8 and 9, the breakfast was a choice of cereals, toast and a variety of breakfasts which include vegetarian, full English, french toast with blueberries and their Yorkie breakfast that came with black pudding. very nice and hot. choice of juices, tea or coffee.
Phillip and his team were very polite and welcoming during our stay. thanks to you all

Room Tip: if you want a room with a bath in it choose room no. 4. if you like a cosy one choose no.3.

Stayed Friday 27th & 28th June 2014 and loved it. Very pleasant ten minute walk to centre via the river. Room spotless and very nice and quiet. Breakfast was gorgeous, best fried bread I've had in a long time!! Phil the owner is really nice and helpful. Free parking permits are a great. He even offered to let us keep it on the last day after checking out.

If there was one small thing to dislike it was the 10am checkout. Think it could be a little later.

Having said this, it would not put me off staying again. Loved it will definitely stay again.

Highly recommended.

As a family of 4 we booked the 2 downstairs rooms, which effectively gives you a small private suite. Lovely, clean rooms and such a friendly and helpful host. Breakfast was generous and tasty. Easy, flat walk along the river to Central York.

This Guesthouse is definitely a place I would recommend to everyone travelling to York. The service from beginning to end was brilliant and faultless, and it was lovely to feel so welcome by such genuine people. The room we stayed in (Room 4) was beautiful, airy and perfect for a couple to stay in. The food was gorgeous and comes with a huge variety of choices. The distance from the Guesthouse to the city walls was about 5 minutes, however it was so peaceful at night. Overall, this is a brilliant place to stay and we will definitely be coming back!

Room Tip: Room 4 is fab and comes with a roll top bath inside the bedroom!

Everything about this guesthouse was just wonderful! The service from Phil was just phenomenal, we were made to feel so welcome. Our room was beautifully decorated and had a gorgeous roll-top bath. Made full use of being able to watch TV in there! The breakfast was absolutely fantastic, everything was perfect! I would highly highly recommend this guesthouse and will definitely be visiting again. Thank you so much!
