Historical Traveler Reviews Acer Guest House York
A wonderful find!
The attention to detail is what sets the Acer hotel apart - we highly recommend a stay. The owner, Karen, is welcoming and very helpful. The Acer is in a quiet part of town, and just a pleasant 10 minute walk to the town center. But the details are what impressed us. The rooms are absolutely spotlessly clean (we have seen many 5 star hotel rooms less clean). The breakfast is excellent. There is a great selection of in-room drinks and snacks including both regular and herbal tea, two types of wine for purchase at under 10 pounds etc. And the towels! Oh, the towels!!! These large, soft, luxurious bath sheets are incredible. With all these great features, we didn't want to leave our room.
But if you do leave your room, and if you are looking for a break from the tourist frenzy, we also recommend a day-time visit to Middlethorpe Hall. In a beautiful garden setting just outside of York (5 minute cab ride or pleasant 45 minute walk from the Acer), this hall, furnished completely with antiques, will send you back into time. We walked through the gardens, had a massage at the spa, ate a spectacular lunch in the intimate dining room, and then relaxed in a parlour with some tea. Heavenly! Make sure you reserve in advance for both the spa and lunch.
Freundlicher und unaufdringlicher Service.
Das Acer hat viel Charakter, liegt aber in einem ruhigen Teil von York. Man läuft auf einem öffentliche Gehweg entlang vieler Schrebergärten, in denen man Blumen und Gemüse bewundern darf. Die Besitzerin Karen ist super hilfsbereit und freundlich und ihre persönlichen Tipps zu Restaurants sind wirklich schön und toll geschrieben und schön dargestellt. Man kann zwischen einem kontinentalen und einem englischen Frühstück wählen - das richtige Englische Frühstück war einfach klasse! Die Zimmer sind wunderschön, sauber und die Betten super gemütlich. Man hat einen Fernseher und einen Wasserkocher für Tee oder Kaffee. Man kann aber auch eine Flasche Wein zu einem angemessenen Preis kaufen. Ich war überrascht, dass man nicht von Hausregeln erschlagen wird und die Gäste können kommen und gehen, wann auch immer es ihnen passt. Alles in allem eine freundliche und bezaubernde Unterkunft.
Friendy and unobtrusive service
The Acer is in a characterful, but quiet, part of York - Scarcroft allotments run parallel and a public path allows the public to view the flowers and vegetables. The owner, Karen, is extremely helpful and friendly and her personalised notes on local eateries are delightfully well written and illuminating. There is a choice of continental or full English breakfast - the full English was the full Monty. The rooms are beautifully clean and the beds ultra-comfortable. There is a TV and tea/cofee making facilities. Guests can also buy a bottle of wine at a reasonable price. I was struck by the lack of any overbearing rules or regulations and guests are welcome to come and go at their convenience. Overall a lovely, welcoming place to stay
Lived up to the billing
We only had one night in York so we were thinking of using one of the big hotels to avoid any unpleasant surprises, but we were very glad we chose The Acer. There is an attitude of warm professionalism that many more guest house owners should try to emulate. The comfort, decor, cleanliness and overall service was faultless, and the owner was a good lady. Now we know where to stay in York.
Erfüllte die Erwartungen.
Waren nur über Nacht in York und wollten deshalb lieber in einem großen hotel schlafen, um uns negative Überraschungen zu ersparen. Wir waren aber froh, uns für das The Acer entschieden zu haben. Hier trifft man auf warmherzige Professionalität, von der sich so mancher Besitzer eines Gästehauses eine Scheibe abschneiden sollte. Der Komfort, die Sauberkeit und der ganze Service waren tadellos und die Besitzerin war wirklich nett. Jetzt wissen wir, wo wir in York übernachten können.
What more could one want
we have stayed in many hotels and b&bs in uk and europe,and must say with all honesty this was one of the most pleasent, we had a lovely room which was just excellent,it was furnished and decorated to a very high standard and had all one would want for a stay.the hotel is spotlessly clean and a credit to its owner,the breakfast was excellent and piping hot and a good choice was offered,it is well located for the city centre about a 15 min. walk we were given a key to the main door and told come and go as you please.parking is free ,we only stayed one night in the acer as we were on route to the moors,but it was lovely and would not hesitate to stay again,i think it would be difficult to find another hotel in york as pleasing as the acer.coupled with free parking what more could you want
Ticks all the boxes
We have just had a very pleasant weekend break at the Acer.
The four poster room was spacious and nicely decorated. Karen the owner gave us a very warm welcome on this our first visit and her notes and advice on where to eat in York were spot on. The hotel is very handily placed for the racecourse and within walking distance of the city.
An excellent cooked breakfast completed our short stay at the Acer
Hatten gerade ein sehr schönes Wochenende im Acer. Das Zimmer mit Himmelbett war geräumig und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Besitzerin Karen hat uns sehr herzlich begrüßt und konnte uns bei unserem ersten Aufenthalt tolle Tipps zu Sehenswürdigkeiten und Restaurants geben. Das Hotel hat eine praktische Lage für die Rennbahn und man kann ins Zentrum laufen. Ein erstklassiges warmes Frühstück hat unseren kurzen Aufenthalt im Acer abgerundet.
Excellent Hotel Intimate
On arriving at the hotel Karen the owner greeted us, we were early but it wasnt a problem, she explained all we needed to know in a charming friendly matter and when asked some questions she answered them truthfully, she was lovely.
When asked about the best place to find an evening meal, she didnt tell us where to go but told us the places to avoid so we felt we had made an informative choice.
She had left some books in the room writing small reviews about various places which we found very informative.
Our room was excellent, clean, quaint and well designed. there was tea, 4 different varieties, coffee, various types, chocolate, bottled water, wine. And even a biscuit, The attention to personal details were excellent, so much so that i photographed the room to try to recreate the same feeling at home.
The ensuite was good with all the little extras you could want, including shoe shine!!
The range of breakfast in the morning was excellent, even for thevegetarian, continental, full english and cereals, toast in abandance, we were continually asked would we like more tea, toast, coffee, nothing was to much trouble and all served with a smile, there were even fresh strawberries if you wanted.
I would like to thank the owner and staff of the Acer Hotel as this was a truely memorable occasion which i throughly enjoyed. And I`m sure we will return as we enjoyed it so much
Great place to stay!
Brilliant location within easy reach of both the city centre and the race course. We stayed in the four poster room which was a lovely, light room with all the necessary equipment (TV, trouser press, hairdryer, hospitallity tray including a very resonably priced selection of wine and soft drinks).
Karen is very friendly, and helpful with local restaurant recommendations etc and nothing is too much trouble. Parking is no problem, unlike some other b&b's we've stayed at in York. Definitely a cut above and we'll be back!

Driving to York today with Ruth and Charlie we stopped to view Hadrian's Wall at two locations. Maps 1-2. An 83 year old woman riding nearby said that on a clear day you can see it to the horizon. Running virtually from coast to coast we realise the Romans were making a serious effort to keep the Scots out of their domain. Not a lot has changed in 2000 years has it. We are still building walls either virtually or in other ways to keep others out. Thanks to Charlie for the long ...
... shows some of the original ruins of what once stood there (some dating as far back as the Norman and even Roman times). Thumbs up for this place! Now it was time to check in and dry out! When leaving the hostel to see one more sight, I discovered the rain had stopped. Yay! - The final place was the National Railroad Museum. I am not in any way a trainspotter (though there were some there). However it was really cool to see a variety of old and new trains. Some of ...
We woke this morning to a sunny, cold (5 degrees) day. After dropping off our parcels at the post office (we both packed more than 2 kg so that was an expensive visit!), we walked into York We first visited York Minster, consider on of the largest medieval church's in Europe and is the second highest office in the Church of England second only to Canterbury. Work began on the church as it is now ...
Today we had a long drive south to our last stop, York. We didn't have much time to stop along the way to see anything very exciting. The journey was made even longer by roadworks going on along the motor way. We had a quick stop for lunch before getting to York. Our main job for the day was finding a post office to send a box back to Australia with our shopping. We've been told that unless we ...
