We stayed 2 nights at the Acer guest house at the start of November. We were greeted by the lady who owns the place. She was very welcoming, gave us a parking permit for outside and showed us to our room (I'm sure it was room 2) she gave us a map and directions and said a taxi was around... More

What a fabulous review; thank you. I am sorry that you can't accurately remember the dates you stayed (and therefore the payment dates). "...she did everything and more for us!" What an accolade!!! Thank you, Karen. More

Stayed a while ago for my birthday... One word, fabulous! Karen is so friendly and always went the extra mile to ensure her guests were happy. Breakfast was lovely & the location of the guest house too. Parking also fab. Would we return? Definitely.

Karen is extremely efficient and runs her business likewise. Within 2 minutes of booking on line I received a phone call and within 5 minutes an email confirming our booking. The accommodation we stayed in was room 2 which was small and maximised all of the space available. Very comfortable and we both had a great nights sleep. Breakfast was... More

We stayed with Karen at the Acer Guest House for a short break from Friday-Sunday and couldn't have wanted any different. The house is perfectly positioned for shopping, sightseeing and meals out as it is only 10 minutes walk from the centre of York. It is also lovely as it's on a quiet street tucked away from the main road.... More

This was our 9th visit, I think, to the Acer. It's always great to walk through the door into the warm and welcoming Acer. Karen looks after us very well and we will keep returning. It's become an annual fixture in our lives and one that us always eagerly anticipated. It'll continue next year too.

I spent many nights at the Acer during the summer of 2015. I was always ahppy to stay there, the rooms are very clean, well appointed, the beds are exceptionally comfortable and Karen's breakfasts are fantastic. It is very quiet and peaceful, and the perfect place to stay after a busy day, sightseeing or working. Highly recommended!

We have just stayed for 4 nights in this spotless guesthouse. Karen was very helpful but also gave people their own space. Cooked breakfasts are good and always very hot, on hot plates. The bed was very comfortable and the area was quiet. Would I stay here again. Definitely!
