“We did not want to leave”
My daughter and I stayed at this wonderful B and B for two nights at the beginning of July. The owners of the property are very genuine people and are most hospitable and helpful. The location is second to none, with a local bus stop right outside the door and if needed taxis are not that expensive into town. The breakfast is beautiful and the setting most restful. It is a fantastic location and I am looking forward to staying here again in the future.

'Fantastic stay at Ashbourne House Bed and breakfast York
From the moment of arrival to depature the weekend stay at Ashbourne Guest House was fantastic. Paul, Julie + Michael where alwasy very helpful and cheerful and made our stay in York that extra bit special. Close by to the city centre and a wonderful river walk to get there made the whole experience very enjoyable and relazing. The rooms and settings were perfect and loved the little toffee sweets as a welcome as soon as you walked in. Would def recommend for a stay and will be staying again when back in York'.

'Fantastic 3 days spent at Ashbourne House. We were treated like family from the moment we arrived. Paul was amazing, helped us out with a taxi from York railway station when we got a bit lost! He paid for it for us, which was unexpected and such a nice gesture. Ashbourne House is about a 6 minute drive from the railway station and is easy to find. We walked into York on most days and it took us no more than 20 minutes. York is a beautiful city with so much to do, very compact so everything is very 'walkable' Could not have asked any more from our hosts, our room was excellent with a wonderful walk in shower. Paul and Julie appear to have thought of just about everything! The bed and bedding - Egyptian cotton -deserves a special mention as they are special.Breakfast was the best, we really enjoyed this time of the day, most definitely worth getting up for. Would love to go back one day, if only to meet up with Paul & Julie again'

"Lovely stay
What a nice couple very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and breakfast. You really couldnt fault. We would recommend a stay at ashbourne house if you like a a homely stay. Julie and paul really go that extra mile that everyone is looking for when staying away from home. We will look to another stay! Tracey and simon staffordshire."

"I have thought very hard but I can't actually think of anything bad to say about Ashbourne House!
We stayed in two b&b's over the weekend and there was no comparison between the two - Ashbourne House was better by a country mile. Paul, Julie and Michael make your stay a very pleasant experience from the warm welcome, helpful advice (suggestions about what to do and where to eat etc) to the fantastic cooked breakfast to see you on your way. The room was a delight - large, well presented with a very comfy bed. We will be returning to York and will most certainly stay at Ashbourne House."

"Right from the moment you are greeted at the door with a warm welcome you know you've found a hidden gem. Paul and Julie's attention to detail at Ashbourne House is exceptional and feels like home from home. Our room was spacious, comfy and immaculately clean. My wife and i were staying over for her birthday and we couldn't have wished for a nicer guest house, and just a short and relaxing river side walk away from York centre. Julie even put us on to a fantastic little Italian restaurant called Lucia's for a celebratory meal. The 'Delicious Yorkshire' breakfast next morning was just the ticket to start the day on. We would highly recommend Ashbourne House to anyone."

"We have just returned home from a 2 night stay at Ashbourne House and we couldn't fault it. Paul was waiting to greet us when we arrived and he showed us to our rooms where he explained about breakfast, the free wifi and helped us arrange taxi's for that evening.
The rooms are gorgeous. I got to see 3 (including ours) as we were staying there with friends and family. We were in room 1 with an ensuite shower room. The decor was lovely and homely. My mother in law commented on how clean everything was & for her to do so means it must be clean!!!
The breakfast was really lovely and made fresh for you when you came down for breakfast, the only downside was there was too much for us!!!!x
it was about a 20 min walk into York City down by the river which isn't bad if the weather is nice but the 2nd day we were there it didn't stop raining!!
We would definitley return to this B&B!!!!!"

"Stayed at Ashbourne House for three days whilst visiting family, my brother recommended as he didn't have any room. The accommodation was charming, lovely room and a great breakfast. Paul and Julie looked after us extreamly well and let our little niece join is for breakfast on one of the mornings which was a nice touch. Would not hesitate to recommend Ashbourne House to other family members. Thank you for a wonderful stay."

"Great Place! And FAST WIFI! I stayed here for three days with my wife and two nephews. Very nice spacious rooms, comfortable REAL king size bed, quiet neighborhood and the owners go way out of their way to make you feel welcome and see to your needs. Stay here and you will not be disappointed. If I return to York I won’t think twice about rebooking here. I have to add that having a strong interent connection was a blessing for a traveling business owner : )."

"Me and husband stayed here for 2 nights and what a fantatsic place to stay. Rooms lovely and clean, beds soooo comfy and breakfasts just amazing. The owners and their daughter go out of their way to make sure you have a restful stay and nothing is any bother. We cant wait to go again and you certainly wont be disappointed if you choose this lovely, friendly bed and breakfast."
