Apple House Guest Accommodation
Ranked #11 of 194 York B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for one night last weekend and I must say this is a fantastic B&B!! We were warmly welcomed by the owner Pam, who greeted us in the car park and helped us with our luggage up to our room. Plenty of room to park in their good sized car park and ideally located near the railway station for a short walk into York. After showing us to our room Pam asked whether we had visited York before (we have), and she was really helpful telling us a shortcut into the city centre and railway museum. She's really friendly, helpful and informative and nothing was too much trouble. Our family room was great with a lovely big ensuite bathroom, with plenty of fluffy towels, complimentary toiletries, a shower and a bath :) Nicely decorated and clean, with a great selection of tea and coffee making facility with hot chocolate, biscuits and a Yorkie bar - major battle ensued with our 12 year old who'd staked his claim on said Yorkie bar! :) Room was also quite roomy with large flat screen tv. Breakfast was fantastic with a choice of fresh fruit, cereal, muesli, granola, yoghurt, and a selection of cooked and full English breakfast cooked to order. Toast made to order and tea and coffee too. My husband and I both agreed it was one of the best Full English Breakfasts we'd had (I rarely eat cooked breakfast but quite fancied it that morning - so glad I did!) I would highly recommend the Apple House to anyone looking to stay in York - I think we've found our new place to stay when visiting York :) Thank you Pam for a wonderful stay!

Would highly recommend this B&B to ANYBODY. From check in to check out it was perfect. Room was lovely, breakfast fantastic and the car park a real bonus. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. We were allowed to use the car park for the day following check out! The location is only a short walk into York centre. Will definitely re visit!

Four night break in this lovely b and b. The carpark was a bonus as car left unused until we left. Pamela was very welcoming. The room was clean and although we could hear the trains they did not bother us too much. Breakfast was delicious and very large! It only took about 10 minutes to walk into York where there is so much to see. Would highly recommend The Apple House.

Room Tip: The back is quieter than the front although the railway is nearby

On a recommendation on trip advisor from an old friend, we decided to book this Guest House for our next visit to York and we were not disappointed.
Location is great and if travelling by train, it is only a few minutes walk from the station. We travelled by car and left it in the large private car park at the rear...no more trying to find a parking spot on a 'permit only street'.
A great welcome from Pam before being shown upstairs. Our room at the front was large, clean and airy with everything you need for a short stay. In fact the whole establishment was well kept.
Breakfast...well where do you start? Good selection of cereals, yoghurt fruit juices and fresh fruit followed by a Full English or Veggie alternative with toast and tea/coffee.
Would highly recommend staying at the Apple House....in fact we are planning our next visit to York with family.

Room Tip: All rooms appear similar but if you are a light sleeper, would probably say a room at the rear may b...

Accommodation was excellent. And Pam and Tony the owners of the guest house was so friendly and helpful. They couldn't do enough for you will definitely stay with them again. Location was excellent for walking into York. Can leave your car there all day when you leave which is a plus cause u don't have to pay for parking. You don't have to check in at a certain time you can just tell them what time you exspect to arrive when you book.

Room Tip: we would recommend a room at the front of the guest house.

Great review and lovely guests. Thank you for choosing to return to us and write your comments. Our rooms at the back of the house face the railway and the rooms at the front are on the main road. We are very central so cannot claim to be in a peaceful location however we hope we offer the little extras to overcome any disturbance from outside. All our guests have their favourite rooms and we will always, as far as possible, let guests have a choice of room. We look forward to seeing you next year (front of house next time!)

This was our first stay at the Apple house and it certainly lived up to its high review ratings. Pam and Tony were very good hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they helped us with directions to the places we wanted to visit. The room was very clean and comfortable, with a good sized en-suite. There was also a Yorkie bar in our room upon arrival which we thought was a nice touch. We had the opportunity to meet both of the friendly waitresses, Jade and Carla and you can see they work hard and do a good job! The cooked breakfast was of a high quality and very tasty, including a good selection of cereals and fruit from the buffet table.

The Apple house has a great location and is only a short walk to the beautiful city of York. We visited the Minster, walked the walls and enjoyed a meal at Betty’s cafe. However, the highlight of the visit was the Railway museum which was free entry. We even had a go on the new Mallard simulator they have, which was great fun.

Our stay at the Apple house was excellent and we have already told our friends that this is the place to stay when they are in York.

They were 6 of us that stayed at the apple house from Friday 19th July to Sunday 21st we were met by pam as we came into,the carpark which by the way is very roomy and private and is locked for security in the night she introduced herself and showed us to our room which were very nice comfy and clean we were all impressed straight away, they was fans in each room which we were all glad of because of the weather which had been very hot over the past few days we all unpacked and got ready to walk into town which is only about a 15 min stroll. The breakfast was lovely and the service excellent we all enjoyed our stay and would definantly return again.... Tania, mell, Helen, Jane angie and Lindsay....
