This is a lovely little B&B, it is in a perfect position, quiet yet only a short walk from the city of York and the race course if that's where you are going. It is extremely clean and well kept, there are toiletries, tea and coffee and dressing gowns in the rooms and even wine to purchase. The owner Karen... More

A really nice place, the owner, Karen Allen, puts her own individual touch to the place which makes it unique, which is no mean feat considering she battles Nazis in her spare time with Indianna, would really recommend a stay, the breakie was excellent also

"Unique" is a fabulous accolade in these times of the mass produced, thank you. I'm not convinced many people reading your review are going to get your film reference. I am going to clarify, the Nazis to which you refer are entirely of the cinematic variety. The other Karen Allen of note is a BBC Foreign Correspondent. I can neither... More

My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay at Acer Guest House. The room was spotless, great breakfasts, very friendly staff - would stay again! The location was perfect to explore York, and walking distance from town and the train station.

It's great to hear that you had a "lovely stay at The Acer". We are indeed within a very easy walking distance of both the station and the city (and the racecourse). FREE parking too, even after checkout. I'd be delighted to have you to stay again and thank you for this superb review, Karen. More

Such a lovely guest house. Very welcoming and friendly. My husband and I were very happy with our stay and we even got a free upgrade to a four poster room which was lovely. The breakfast was fab and also free parking is great as the prices for parking in York are ridiculous! Very close to the city also so... More

ACERYork, Owner at Acer Guest House, responded to this review

I always give guests a complimentary upgrade if at all possible; I am delighted that you appreciated this gesture so much. Parking in York is indeed very expensive. There are a very limited number of parking spaces in the city as York is a mediaeval walled city. The Council do need to keep as many vehicles as possible out of... More

Needed last minute, sensibly priced accommodation near the York Marriott (for a wedding party), and this fitted the bill perfectly. Welcoming, friendly, clean, tidy, comfy bed, good hot full English, highly recommended. Thanks Karen - to you and the girls.

An excellent, clean and very welcoming B&B. Plenty of tea/coffee/milk etc with other drinks should you wish to buy. The honesty box and fridge was a great idea if you wanted chocolate or a cold drink.
