A last minute opportunity for a few days in York, just after Easter. This came up on my booking site. Clear from the outset about no frills, no bedding and no meals. But a very keen price. No humans on sight as you accessed by keypad and room key box, very efficient. Room was basic but clean and tidy with...

Just a 15 minute stroll to all the sights, Astley House was great value for money. At these prices you expect to be in a dormitory rather than your own en-suite room with wifi too! Lovely to hear owls hooting at night too, very atmospheric. I felt very secure too with a painless security system.

The place is nice from the outside, that is the only thing nice about this place. It's quite old and it should be cleaner, specially the bathroom. We had cracks in the walls and the smell of the place isn't very pleasant. The people there are rude and we had to ask for toilet paper 3 times till they gave...

Very basic accomodation that really is only a bed for the night, the lack of human contact is a loss of a focal point and would give some direction for frustrations, rooms are sparce and the various notices for do it yourself cleaning, apart from being natural to most, is indicative of the general lack of care the whole experience...

For a very cheap Guest House in York I found it very reasonable. Lack of staff isn't an issue, cleaning the room before check out doesn't bother me as I only want to sleep. Because I stop on a regular basis I had to change my dates and Astley House kindly move my dates. Overall this Guest House is very...

having read a few reviews on astley house i can fully understand why guests would be frustrated by the institutional type set up. the word bizarre was used in one review and i think that sums it up. however i believe you know what you are letting yourself in for when you book. it states in the booking information about...

Slightly bizarre. Looks like an ordinary B&B but it has minimal staffing - in fact I didn't see a member of staff in two nights there. You get a code texted to you to open the code lock on the front door. Then there's another code to open the key box which contains the key to your room. Clean bedclothes...

I urge you to read all the reviews on this hotel before booking. On the face of it the hotel looks ok and good value. But with self check in and having to clean your own room, there is much better available for the money. The manager in paticular is terrible. During our stay the fire alarm in our room...

Great if you want to save your money, clean, tidy no frills, as a place to shower and rest your head, fine. On the down side, there's no reception, so nobody to chat to about what's going on, get recommendations etc. Couldn't get the Wi-Fi to work in my room or reception. The shower was potentially dangerous, the temperature fluctuated...
