The Ambleside provided comfy room and lovely breakfast. Our host was attentive and assisted us with our planning. A short walk to downtown, a little longer to the train station and the York Train museum. We'd stay here again!!!

Excellent B&B with wonderful hosts. Nice quiet street and still within easy walk to all the attractions, shops and restaurants. Good advice on drives, walks and where to eat. Brilliantly appointed room with great attention to detail. Very nice breakfast cooked to order exactly when you want it. We would recommend Ambleside to anyone

Myself and my husband planned to visit York for a long weekend for our wedding anniversary - not realising this coincided with York races!! Many places were booked up, or taking "advantage" (some would substitute "the p***" there) of the busy race weekend by upping their published prices by anything from 30-100%! Keith at the Ambleside, however, quoted exactly what... More
