Normally we do not stay at Bed and Breakfasts, but York Lodge has completely changed our outlook. The quality of the accommodation was superb, spotlessly clean with nice touches in the room- cammomille tea bags, nice little nic naks for the shower, biscuits and a magical self replenishing pot of foxes glacier fruits for that late night sugar tooth.

Very welcoming reception when we arrived after a long drive. Checked in quickly and given a key and directions up to our room. The room was clean and tidy, and the decoration felt very 'homey'. We had a room at the front on the 2nd floor. There was no noise from the road outside but we had the windows closed.... More

Yorke Lodge is in a good location; the centre of Canterbury is about fifteen to twenty minutes walk. We would stay there again; maybe Vicky is like Marmite. One of our group took a dislike to her, so we can appreciate "Eurosclerosis's" review. The rooms we had were lovely; well-equipped and spacious and clean. The breakfasts were very good and... More

We live in the Netherlands and pop over to Kent easily with the euro tunnel. When we stay in Canterbury this is our place to stay. We feel comfortable in any of the rooms available especially the suite with the poster bed. The entire town house give us immediately the feeling of being in old England in a tasteful way.... More

Overall I found that the host lady, Victoria, was very rude. She did absolutely nothing to make me feel welcome, every request seemed like a burden, such as a wake up call, organizing a cab, and even the breakfast order. I recall coming down for breakfast and being rudely informed by Victoria that I could not sit there. The room... More

What makes this B&B feel special are the little touches that give a feel of luxury. Decoratively it couldn't be faulted. I had a couple of minor gripes. There is some road noise if your room is at the front of the building - not excessive but foam earplugs were provided! Breakfast is not served until 8.00am. Ok if you... More

We stayed here for four nights this week. We could not fault it. The room was gorgeous and extremely comfortable & well stocked. Our host, Vicky, was extremely friendly and helpful. There was a good choice of breakfasts, full English, cereals, veggie, gluten free, fruits, yogurts, smoked salmon and scrambled egg, fresh coffee, teas. Our room was tidied, the bed... More

York House is a great choice in Canterbury. It is about a 10 minute walk from the city wall and 15 or 20 from the cathedral. Our room on the second floor was bright, comfortable and spotless. Breakfast was excellent. The owner, Vicki, is wonderfully upbeat and friendly and gave us great advice about restaurants and sites to visit in... More

This accommodation was chosen for me by the company I was working for, as the hours were long and I was going to be there on and off for a month. Vicky is amazing her hospitality is the perfect mix between fun & engaging and tactful discretion. I stayed there at random intervals over a month and I think I... More

Into the unknown on a first visit!! Wow, what a super reception awaited! Everything explained and our comfort and convenience were top priority! Yorke Lodge is an outstanding building furnished with guest rooms that are immaculate in every way! Rather than 'settling in' to our room and its surroundings, we felt immediately 'at home' and fell in love with the... More
