Apple House Guest Accommodation
Ranked #10 of 194 York B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 11, 2012

This is a lovely B & B. Pam and Tony were very welcoming and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was great, with plenty of choice. There is a large car park at the rear and you can leave your car there with no worries. It is a short walk to the centre of York and the local train station is nearby, but if you dont want to walk, there is a bus stop outside. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance. Will be returning again.

I cannot fault this B&B. We took it over as a large extended family to celebrate our Dad's 80th and it was perfect. The family rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable, and ours had a bunk bed in a seperate connecting room. There were lots of games for the children to play with and DVDs, and a good outdoor area with pets. The breakfast was superb (including Masham sausages) and Pam and Tony could not have been more helpful or hospitable. The locations was great, a short walk to the city centre, with the added bonus that we could leave our car in the B&B car park on the day we left, whilst we did nore sightseeing. A hone from home for us for the weekend. Thanks Pam and Tony.

Room Tip: For a family of 4, go for the one with the bunk beds in the connecting room.

I stayed on my own, last minute just for one night. Pam was very welcoming and gave me lots of tips. An easy stroll into the centre and nice to be away from the crowds at night. Room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Shower was fantastic. I was able to leave my bag there after check out and collect before I got my train. If I visit York again I'll definitely try and book the Apple House. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

I was attending a conference and had the pleasure in staying in this quaint establishment which is close to the train station and town centre.

This is a family who run the business is sooo friendly so is like home from home and was clean and tidy. I stayed 2 nights and each night slept extremely well. the area was very quiet. There is ample parking too so was able to park up the car and go by foot for the 2 days of my stay.

Everything I needed was in the room. Also had WiFi too

A good selection for breakfast and catered for vegetarians.

Room Tip: Not sure wether there was a lift but there is a few stairs to climb so if mobility is an issue pleas...

Ask Pam George (Owner) for anything and she will do it. Good location and a short walk to York City centre passing by the brilliant York Rail Museum. Breakfast is hot, good and enough for the day.
(If you want something different try the local pub a few doors away ,its like Coronation street on a bad day).
Have been to Apple house twice and always a good welcome from Pan and Husband and she will always allow you lo leave car at a rear car park if you want to leave early.
A good B & B

Room Tip: Bus stop outside (Use instead of Taxis)

Stayed 9/10th Dec with husband and 3.5 year old daughter. Great location and large car park to the rear.
Nothing but praise for the Apple House very clean and comfortable room, slept well on both night can only hear the trains fainty now and again as property is double glazed.
Good breakfast freshly cooked - choice of cereals etc.
There were books and games for children and they had guinea pigs in the garden

We only met Pam during our stay and she was lovely.
We will visit again

I stayed here on a friends recommendation. This B & B is in a good location for visiting York as is walking distance from the centre (about 10 mins). It has ample off road, rear parking which is free.
The rooms are on suite and spacious and the owner was very pleasant and helpful. The only thing that let it down was that the room really needed to be cleaned. On arrival, the toilet was dirty, two of the pillows didn't have covers and had hair on them and the bathroom lights (two of them) didn't work. It was a bit of a bad first impression. However, i'd like to think that it may have been due due to my late booking, giving them the benefit of the doubt. The plus points did out weight the bad, but it would put me off saying again....sorry!

I am so sorry your impression of The Apple House was a bad one. There is no excuse for us not checking the lightbulbs or pillow slips not being on the pillows. Out chambermaids at that time should have been more efficient in their servicing of the room. I am sorry for the dirty loo - it had been cleaned although I had let a small child and his mum use the facilities after they returned to collect their car and I should have ensured they had left it clean. Many apologies for your disappointing stay
