TWO UPGRADES

A travel blog entry by david142

Arriving at the airport in HCMC we are amazed to find ourselves being checked in by one of the girls we met on our snorkelling tour on Phu Quoc island. She gives us a huge smile when she sees us and gestures to her colleague who was also on the tour who gives us a big smile and wave.

David and I cheekily ask her for the upgrade we had ...

A Walk, A Church, A Pub

... and propagate.

The last leg of our journey was described as a very steep slope - not an understatement! After following a very narrow path for at least a mile, we had a steep descent to a rapidly flowing stream which we had to cross. Then looked up to see the path continued almost straight up. What a feeling of accomplishment to climb it!

Our reward, once again, was another terrific pub ...

... reaching the earth from the cloud and both Geoff and I were concerned it would head our way. Within five minutes or so, it was above us and started pelting us with good sized hail stones. On the moorland where we were, there was no shelter so we had to slog through it, covering our faces as the hail hit. I couldn't believe how much they hurt when they hit our faces! It was all over in about 15 minutes. ...

The final day.

... branch to another. We drove back to the airport via a winding mountain road that took us up through majestic pine forests right over a saddle of Table Mountain, and led down to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The rest was pure horror - motorways, wrong turnings, car drop-off, endless sitting around in the departures terminal...but now we're jetting towards Paris, be home in about 12 ...

Viking invasions and ghostly goings on

A travel blog entry by twovines

... quite so bad! We learn about how the evidence was pieced together to reconstruct the houses and we also see several artefacts including an elaborate comb. Vikings, we are told, had combs as status symbols and wore them proudly on their belts. The one we are looking at would have cost £300 in today's money. We also see artefacts made from cow horn. This, we are told, is very malleable when heated but hardens when cool - the Viking version of plastic. ...

    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!
