“Brilliant little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

This gem of a BB is excellent, the award winning breakfast deserves all the awards on offer, the food is of a high quality, freshly made to how you want it, the room we stayed in was bright and airy with a stunning bathroom, the bed was so comfortable the furniture was beautiful, the decor was fresh bright and clean, no smell of paint but had that just decorated feeling, the towels were bright white and really fluffy, the linens were laundered beautifully, this BB did not have one speck of dust anywhere I was so amazed so I looked for it, if you have a car or bike, there car park at the rear has CCTV and is surrounded by high gates and walls so your car is totally safe, the staff are very polite and professional, they are available 24 hours a day just ring the bell, not needed but nice to know, they are very knowledgeable about routes to landmarks, restaurants they will happily arrange taxis and book restaurants for you, real pleasure to stay here would recommend it to all.

Room Tip: We stayed 31 July till 2aug, we were in room 11, the room is beautiful lots of space and great light...

Our family of four stayed one night at the Ascot House. Our room was beautifully decorated and had a four poster bed and two twin beds. The bathroom was recently updated and had great water pressure in the shower! The room was very clean. The breakfast had something for everyone. The cooked breakfast was delicious! Everyone was very friendly and helpful! We would definitely recommend Ascot House for your visit to York!

We came here for my husband's birthday on the 28th May, just for one night. We had a very friendly welcome, and was told the best way to get into York. The room was very clean and the fourposter bed was very comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was made to order and gave us a good start to the day. An excellent place.

When we arrived the owner was welcoming and very knowledgeable and helpful. Our room in the attic was clean and comfortable with a lovely view of the Minster. The bathroom was large, modern and very good. Breakfast was excellent, served by friendly staff. We would definitely recommend Ascot House for a visit to York.

I cannot praise this enough. What a wonderful experience.
The welcome was out of this world and nothing was too much.
The room was unbelievable and very spacious. What a bathroom!! Very clean.
Breakfast was cooked to order and was very good quality. All the staff were extremely friendly and chatted away quite the thing. Any information you may need about the city was available from the owners who had great knowledge of York and the surrounding area.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: There aren't a lot of rooms and if they are mostly like the one we had (Room 11) you won't b...

This is our third visit to this beautiful B&B. Our stay was in Room 22 which is a top floor, light and airy room with a view overlooking the park and The Minster. The room is beautifully furnished (see pictures) with a large en suite bathroom/over bath shower. For breakfast, a selection of fruit juices, fresh/canned fruit, cereals and 'sprinkles', yoghurts and of course the 'full English' Breakfast (delicious), vegetarian available together with eggs cooked in a variety of ways. If you have a bus pass there are a couple of bus stops near by or if you fancy walking it takes 10-15 minutes at a leisurely pace.

Room Tip: Room 22 has sheer curtains so if you have difficulty sleeping in early morning light this would not...
