We stayed at The Acer which was booked as part of a surprise package for my birthday by my wife and I have to say that it could not have been bettered. There is every attention to detail, the whole place is immaculate and the Acer certainly compares easily with any top rated hotel you will find in York. In...

We spent a night at the Acer earlier this week. It was a very last minute booking but Karen was extremely helpful and accommodating, even when we arrived over an hour earlier than we'd planned. The room was lovely, well equipped and very clean. I don't feel I need to go over all the points already mentioned below by other...

My partner and I stayed at the Acer in May for a long weekend. This B&B was a good find from TA and the reviews so far are right. The location is good if you don't mind a walk to the city (about 10 minutes) - for us this was fine. You would have to pay a lot more to...

Wow, this is a real essay! I am so pleased that you found the location, price, parking facilities and breakfasts fantastic. The sniclkeway that you can use to get into the city is well lit, well used and perfectly safe at any time of day or night. If guests have any concern whatsoever about using the ginnel it's just as...

This is a first rate guest home in every way and because this was our first trip to York, we felt very fortunate to have chosen it, having read the reviews on Trip Advisor. Thank you all!

I am so pleased that you like our new decor...it was all carefully chosen, you are right. Breakfast does not have to be selected the evening before but it's a tremendous help to me if it is. I'm glad that you thought it was a good idea too. Guests can always change their minds. I am taking "down to earth"...

Greeted friendly on arrival, shown directly to our beautiful four poster bedroom which was immaculate. The decor of the guest house was extremely warm with a modern twist. 10/15 minute walk to the city centre with an easy direct route. Traditional cooked breakfast was the perfect size to last us until lunchtime and on the second day we had kippers...

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write a review. It's funny how Art Deco and Art Nouveau are often described as modern...I am so pleased that our refurbishment appeals to so many different tastes. The inspiration for the redecoration was 1900 to 1930 to fit in with the age of the house and it is very clean...

Thank you so much for this glowing review. Had I known it was your anniversary I would have recommended an upgrade from a double to our four poster...it's fantastic for those special occasions. I recall that you arrived just two hours after our refurbishment was finished by the new carpets being laid!
