disappointing and not good value for money
We booked this in February in anticipation of attending York races and therefore the inflated price was £130 per room with breakfast. We decided to still travel to York and checked other hotels before we left to see that we could have booked something cheaper, but thought to just stay as we were. Good sized carpark. Booking in a little unusual, were told to choose breakfast at booking in and were given set times to choose and felt we had to choose quickly. The room was on the small side, lovely comfortable bed, but the shower cubicle very small - not sure how some people would find getting in and out easy? at breakfast we sat with our friends . although there were cereal boxes available - no dishes - when the 'manageress'? came to set our table, i asked for a bowl for the cornflakes - she arrived with the bowl at the same time our breakfast arrived - so we didn't have cornflakes. Very disappointed at the size of breakfast, sausage tough , fried egg a little overdone. The management made no attempt to introduce themselves and so we 'guessed' who they might be. Whilst we are still in the covid situation, whilst they wore masks, i still felt they could have said hello?

Good value for money. It's a little dated but comfortable and ideal place for walking into centre of York. 3 year old could walk in and out of city centre

Impressive small hotel near centre with parking.
The Apple House is a very nice small hotel about 15 minutes walk from York centre. The owners were delightful and very keen to oblige and even went to Sainsburys to get us some ice. The room was really nice and usefully and unusually had a separate area for children. Very nice and we will return. Nice breakfast too. They were also happy for their dining room to be used to eat takeaways etc. As i say, very impressive and customer focused.

Lovely weekend visit in York at the Apple House
Lovely 2 night break at the Apple house while visiting York with my Mum. Fantastic hosts and staff, very friendly and helpful with the local area. Car park was easy to find and to use. Was made very welcome. Really good clean twin bed room, beds comfortable and nice clean bathroom with walk in powerful shower. TV with lots of tea,coffee,hot choc and coffee latte provided. Biscuits and a yorkie bar which is a nice touch. Breakfast was lovely, with lots of options of cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit. Tea or coffee and juices available. Toast and full English cooked very well and to your liking. Good quality sausage and bacon. We asked for poached eggs which was no problem at all. Set us up for the day sightseeing and we did not feel the need to eat again until later in the afternoon. 15 mins walk into York which was quite easy to do or there is a bus stop right outside (the No 1) that takes you into York. We would highly recommend stopping at the Apple House to others and will return for sure if we visit York again in the future. 10 out of 10 for us, well done to Danielle and Tarquin and their staff.

Lovely B&B Would Return
We stayed for 2 nights in room 10 on the ground floor. The room was lovely, very spacious and a king sized bed! The bed was very comfortable. The room had a flatscreen TV with a DVD player. The hotel has a selection of DVD'svavaliable to use. There was also complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits and a yorkie bar in the room. Bathroom was lovely, very clean complimentary toiletries and a powerful shower. My only suggestion for improvement would be a heated towel rail snd a none slip mat in the bath. I cant give much of a comment on breakfast as I dont eat much in a morning but the self service bar was fulfilling with all the cereals & fresh fruit you could want with gluten free options too. The staff were lovely, upon arrival the lady on the desk gave us some information leaflets, told us about some of the main attractions and explained how to get to them. There is a large private carpark to the rear, we parked up on monday and had no problems not returning to it until wednesday. Location is great. 5 min walk from train station & a 10 min walk into town where you can easily find the castle museum, shambles, minster & hundreds of shops! I would 100% return to the Apple House if we ever return to York & would hightly reccommend to anyone.

Excellent value
Stayed for a night whilst visiting the National Railway Museum. It’s just a 15 minute walk away. A different 15 minutes takes you past 20 or more pubs and eateries of every cuisine to the Ouse and then the attractions of the city. Takeaways also abound. Just up the road there is a Subway and a Sainsbury’s Local. The B&B even encourages guests to use the dining room and crockery for their takeaways . A secure and well-lit car park is at the rear (access off Cambridge St). Trains can be seen going by beyond, but barely heard in the room due to the triple glazing. The room was one of the property’s smallest, but perfectly adequate, with a comfy bed, well positioned TV and a courtesy tray that beats anything I’ve seen in hotels. (See photo). Wine glasses and A YORKIE BAR!!?? Service was excellent and the hot freshly cooked breakfast was faultless. No nasty instant coffee here! We’d be perfectly happy to use the Apple House as a budget base for exploring the wider views and attractions of beautiful North Yorkshire
