I'm not really one to write reviews but my stay this weekend has prompted me to do so!

Paul & Julie made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. The room was of a good size and very clean.

The breakfast (pre ordered) was spot on and set us up well for the day ahead.

It is about a 20/25 minute walk into the centre but if you're going on a city break and not expecting to do any walking you'd be sorely mistaken. The walk if you cross the road can be done along the river as well which is really nice.

All in all I'd definitely recommend staying here and will probably do so again myself.

my wife is a member of ththe court of the University nof York and we visit 4 ntimes ayear for meetings and dinners.We used to stay at a well known Hotel a stones throw away.Some time ago they were unabl,e to accommodate us but kindly reccomended Ashbourne House.This proved to be a stroke of good fortune !..Paul and Julie made us very welcome and were most attentive(We had the impression that they really cared)
Nothing was too much trouble and with each visit this has continued to be the case.We are retired and have several breaks each year.Some of the hotels are four star(If we cant get the sort of accomodation we enjoy at home we do not revisit ! Breakfast at Ashbourne beats the best.Value for money is first class (We enjoy and expect value and Ashbourne supply it bin "Spades"Keep it up !!! Peter and Susan Joyce.

Premium room, large with huge bed, comfortable chairs, large bay window overlooking busy road. Secondary double glazing stopped any sound from the busy road.

Lovely tiled floor leading to stairs in the entrance hall.

Car parking is a bit tight but we were accommodated.

Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice, well cooked.

Mine hosts were very pleasant and friendly.

Just what you'd want for a pleasant stay in a lovely city.

B&B's around had vacancies advertised while Ashbourne House was fully booked, says it all really!

We would certainly stay at Ashbourne House again.

A big 'Thank you' to Paul and Julie for a lovely 5 night stay last week. The rooms are spotless, bed wonderfully comfortable, and everything was of top quality. The cooked breakfast was amazing and very well presented - it would not be out of place in a 5 star hotel. Even the cereals came with fresh berries and granola. A nice touch that the preserves were locally sourced. As alone female traveller, it is always a little daunting to go somewhere unknown, but Paul and Julie could not have made me feel more welcome and happily chatted to me over breakfast, which was a lovely personal touch. I cannot recommend this highly enough as a place to stay and would definately return!!

We had a really lovely stay at Ashbourne House this past weekend. I had booked the larger double which was an excellent room. Very clean with a huge, comfortable bed.
Paul and Julie were really lovely and bent over backwards to accommodate our odd check in time and sorting out a surprise bottle of champagne so I could impress the girlfriend!!
Breakfast was excellent too. We found ourselves hoping for heavy snow so we could extend our stay! Sadly it wasn't to be.

Return visit virtually 12 months after previous visit, it was great to find that very little had changed as ,as per our first visit everything was as perfect as our original visit. Attentive without being overbearing service, clean well equipped room, multitude of voices at breakfast and excellent portion sizes, if you're looking for a place to stay within striking distance of city centre you'd be a fool to book anywhere else, 5 mins in your car or a simple 15 min stroll along the river.
Seriously recommended.

Had a great stay at the Ashbourne house! Great service, very friendly and helpful hosts. The room was very nice and clean, with comfortable beds. Very quiet:-) Twenty minutes walk from city centre, but buses every ten minutes. Very nice breakfast. Recommended!
