I stayed here with my partner for 1 night whilst visiting York. The booking process was very simple as we went direct. I had originally considered getting the train over to York but the option of a parking permit (available on arrival) made sense and saved a lot of money. The guest house was very clean and comfortable. The location...

Stayed here for a 2 night break for the Christmas markets. Rooms are very clean but quite small, en suite is directly next to bed but very confined with toilet right next to wash basin and a bit of a struggle if you are a big person or less mobile, and a small cubicle shower next to wash basin. All...

Thank you for taking the time to write this very, very detailed review. At the time you made the reservation I believe that we did discuss the possibility of you reserving the four poster en suite room. I recall that you decided to save some money by taking the smaller standard double en suite room. I am delighted that you...

My husband and I stayed in the Acer Guest House this last Wednesday until Saturday. It is well situated for a sightseeing stay as it is about 15 mins to the walls of the City.

Thank you for taking the time to post this lovely review. The city centre is a 15 minute walk from The Acer with the walls at Micklegate Bar only a gentle 10 minute stroll from our front door. The free parking does save guests about £25 a day in fees. Thank you, Karen.

Short walk to the city wall, big rooms and free parking. We were very happy staying here. Could hear the guy in the room next door snoring, but other than that everything was great. Breakfast was also really good. Would definitely recommend this place!

The Acer is indeed only a short walk to the city and my free parking saves the guests a small fortune. Thank you for your comments on the large size of your room. I'm sorry that you could hear someone (not certain how you know it was a man) snoring. That's the first time since I have owned The Acer...

I wish that I'd have found this when my daughter first started at York Uni, it would have saved me hours of searching for places to stay. The Acer Guesthouse is an absolute treat, everything was spotless, there was huge attention to detail and the decor/design was lovely. We stayed in a ground floor double which was delightful, little touches...

Booked at the last minute, direct with the guest-house owner, Karen; we could not have chosen better. We were looking for a night in York as a "mini-moon" and booked the four-poster room; the room was lovely, clean, comfortable and the bed itself was a dream - so comfortable and cosy. Karen was a wonderful and welcoming host; everything was...
