“home from home in York”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

in a beautiful and fascinating city marred by overpriced and frankly mediocre hotel accomodation the Apple House is a gem. personally run by the dynamic and welcoming Pam and her husband Tony this friendly B & B provides comfortable rooms, great Yorkshire breakfasts and dog and child friendliness, just a few minutes walk (or an even shorter bus ride from the No 1 stop outside the front door) from the attractions of York. plentiful parking in a safe gated park at the back.
we visit York 3 or 4 times a year for leisure or professional conferences and wouldn't stay anywhere else. it's a perfect base to explore this wonderful city and area.

We (my husband, our 3 yr old son and I) stayed an overnight at Apple Guest House during our visit to York in July 2012. I must admit that after dozen of places that I tried to book in York, I will still remember Apple Guest House for their kid friendly approach and acceptance. Free&large private parking at the back yard where Pam welcomed us on our arrival was already a good sign of a this friendly place. Our room was the largest family room on the top level. Breakfast was very fulfilling and good. It is only 7-8 minutes to get to downtown if you ask Pam which shortcut to take. For us the only downside was the wifi on the top floor. It was very unstayable and not functioning properly. Overall, it is a great place to stop by especially with kids.

Thanks for the good review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and apologise for the internet having a bit of a wobble that night. Very occasionally it does lose connection for a short while but 99per cent of the time is is fast and efficient. The router has since been changed. Tony and Pam

We couldn't have asked for a better stay!!! We were traveling for the first time with our 4 month old and were a little nervous about how it would go. From the second I spoke to Pam on the phone, I was reassured that everything would be ok! She was right. Upon arrival, Pam greeted us and made us feel so so welcome, along with her lovely husband. She put the cot bed up for us and really spent time making us feel at ease about staying there with a small baby. We were relieved to find that a number of other babies were staying at the same time!! Our stay was just perfect; great location; amazingly friendly owners; lovely rooms and breakfast. Will definitely go back in the future and can't recommend this accommodation enough if you are traveling with a baby / small child and want to be close to the centre of York! Thank you so so much!

We have just been to York overnight on a shopping trip with our son for his birthday & college clothes! The Apple House is perfectly placed and plenty of parking which is an added bonus. A very warm greeting by Pam and nothing seems too much trouble. Room clean and tidy & spacious enough for three. Breakfast good. Would mention the train line for the back rooms, didn't bother us as we live near one too but may bother some. Double glazing blocks most noise if closed. A couple of small issues which I mentioned on the in room form and certainly wouldn't stop me going again. Great value for money.
Thanks to owners efforts.

My sister & I stayed here in February as we were booked in at a local Spa. Pam was exceptionally helpful giving us directions & advising us of local places to eat in the evening. The location of the guest house is perfect as it is only a stroll away from the centre. Parking is perfect at the rear of the accommodation & with no extra charges. All staff were friendly & the breakfast was delicious. We would both definitely stay here again and want to thank Pam for all her help & hospitality. The warm welcome here is by far the best I've experienced. Look forward to my next stay.
