... It was great. Some of the royal carriages right back to Victorias own.... After that I checked where we would need to go tomorrow, early in the morning to return our little car and get straight into the train to take us to Kings Cross Station and then onto the Eurostar to Paris. Very glad I did this. Google maps led me up the garden path and after much walking up, down and around, I finally found the place I needed, right back where I'd ...

... pud) at Toby Carvery on outskirts of town. Tuesday we caught up with Marion and Brian Cole and what a lovely day we had. Brian was so good with the boys and was a very obliging film director. We all went on the York Chocolate Story which was really good. You learn all about York's history as a chocolate town (think Rowntree and Terry's) and you get to taste ...

Had an amazing day in London thanks to our fabulous tour guide Sue Moss. Started with the London Eye which was a fantastic experience. The views across the city were really good. We then headed up past Big Ben to Trafalgar Square and Nanny Jo climbed on lions for fun shots with boys. Then we went into the park near Buckingham palace to hunt squirrels and train pigeons to land on us (well M7 and Nanny Jo did it). ...

Ah, but we have to get it back and PC World don't deliver to boats . . .didn't think of that ! Thank goodness for taxis and our sturdy little trolley, it was soon safely delivered to its new home. And as with all technology the rest of the day was taken up getting it to work properly.

Next day saw us set off along the Leeds Liverpool canal, windlass in ...

£1 Ferry Crossing

A travel blog entry by lucasdambitis

... travel the M1 south to make the crossing so we're confident we'll hitch a lift. The problem is when we get to the port. We've been advised that if we're lucky and charming enough we may be able to hitch a ride over in someones car as a passenger (price is per car, not person). But when looking at paying for the ferry as a foot passenger the pre-booked online price was £50...I dread to think how ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Acer Guest House York

    A wonderful find!

    from

    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.

    Freundlicher und unaufdringlicher Service.

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    Hat alles

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Great place to stay!

    from

    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!
