Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic stay over New year weekend in this lovely b&b (although I would argue that it is more of a quality, small hotel). Warm welcome on arrival from Fiona and Ricardo. Warm, comfortable room with all the facilities we needed, plus lots of other little touches that made our stay even better. Delicious breakfast with so much choice, served in their beautifully decorated dining room. An easy 20 minute walk into the city centre or plenty of buses heading in as well. All in all we had a really great couple of days here and wouldn't hesitate to come back. Thanks for a relaxing weekend.

Sometimes when writing a review you worry if you would ever be able to book again. And by this I don’t mean a bad experience, I mean that this place will become even more popular and that we won’t be able to get in. From the welcome at arrival to the room, everything has been throughly thought of to make your stay exemplary. Moving onto the breakfast, well the finest traditional Yorkshire breakfast possibly in Yorkshire. I have never ever seen a fried egg cooked to that perfection. The bed very comfortable, the bathroom to the highest standard with everything you will need thought of. A check in that welcomes you at a time you need to arrive, how thoughtful. When traveling a long way you never quite know how long it will take and knowing you can relax straight away when you arrive is simply perfect. This place is a must in York! And a genuine blooming well done to the owners for making it the perfect night away in the beautiful York. At a price point that is affordable for most, at a time which is difficult for all under the cost of living currently. Will we be back oh yes! That’s if we can get in.

We stayed at Ashbourne house for 3 nights and what a gem of a place it was. From the minute we arrived we were given a warm welcome by Fiona and Ricardo to the moment we left. The room was immaculately clean with a feel like home. I had one of the best nights sleep in the comfiest of beds. Breakfast was one of the best I’ve ever had with a wide range of cereals, fruit, yogurts, juices and cooked items. Little touches like chocolates, sweets and tea, coffee and sugar supplies on each floor was greatly appreciated. We will definitely be returning.

Felt welcome from the moment we arrived, room was lovely, warm (very cold and frosty day) and clean albeit a little small. Couldn’t walk into the city along the river as it had flooded so a 20/30 mins along the road or you could catch the bus for £2. Breakfast tasty, plenty of options in the airy dining room. Enjoyable couple of days, would stay again but choose one of the bigger rooms, that said for a 2 night stay it was ok so don’t let that out you off. Christmas market not too big, enjoyable and not overcrowded but it was Wednesday I guess the crowds would be there weekend.

Just returned from a fabulous stay at Ashbourne House. Wonderful place to stay, beautifully decorated, lots of little touches that make it special, the rooms are lovely and everything is quality. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The hosts Fiona and Ricardo are fantastic and welcoming, Fiona makes you feel like you have known her for years and has a good sense of humour, they both add to your stay. Short walk into town, about 20 mins but feels shorter. We will definitely be going back. There was nothing I would change.
