“Good Value Great B&B”
Reviewed 24 August 2009

Good location with a nice walk along the river into York. There is a bus stop close by if you aren’t feeling energetic! The room was very clean, well appointed and tastefully furnished. The hosts were lovely and friendly and very helpful as to where to visit etc. The breakfasts were gorgeous.

Ashbourne House is a rare thing - a B&B in York which doesn't insist on 2-night bookings. We just wanted one night, and found the accommodation, breakfast and service excellent. I would certainly stay there again, but would request a different room. I think we had the smallest one in the house and it was actually a bit of a challenge to get our bags into the room in a place where we could (a) open the door and (b) not fall over them on the way to the bathroom.

We're good walkers but estimate that it takes closer to 25-30 minutes to walk to the centre of York. It's a nice walk though, along the banks of the river.

Ashbourne House is a small family run guest house on the outskirts of York with good bus service to the centre, or 20mins walk. The owners Paul and Julie give a high quality and thoughtful service. Everything is spotlessly clean, bed very comfortable, excellent breakfast.

Wonderful little guest house situated only 5-6 mins by bus/taxi from the city centre. We stayed 3 nights and it was luxury-a beautiful room with lovely furnishings, immaculately clean, a fab choice of breakfast all freshly cooked and lovely hosts, Paul & Julie.
York was great, and we struck lucky with the weather which always helps!
Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend it.

Paul and Julie are the perfect hosts and offered lots of help and guidance for relative strangers to York. The hotel is well positioned for visiting attractions. There is an excellent bus service for anyone not wanting to take a car into town in the evening or it is possible to walk to town. The walk is on flat roads but does take about 20 minutes. Alternatively it is possible to walk along the riverside. The facilities in the hotel are excellent and everywhere is absolutely spotless. The bedroom was comfortable with all necessary facilities ie, trouser press, tea making, highdryer, TV and radio etc. The en-suite shower was powerful and spacious. The breakfast was delicious and hearty - an enjoyable start to the day.
