My husband, teenage son and myself stayed for two nights over the bank holiday weekend. It was a last minute booking and quite expensive but our usual places to stay were booked up. It was actually the most we have paid to stay in York and we were frankly a little disappointed. The house is fantastic looking from the outside,... More

A house full of character, great full cooked English breakfast, lovely customer service, friendly and helpful. Holly lodge has off road parking, in the generous driveway, which is a massive plus!! Please think twice when booking a b&b about parking in York as most of the ones we saw this close to town have no off road parking and it... More

I visited York recently and stayed at The Holly Lodge. It was full of charm and character and I really enjoyed my stay. Although The Holly Lodge is in a quiet location, it is still a short walking distance to town, which was perfect. Highly recommended and I will be returning in the near future.

Has loads of potential but lacks TLC. For the price one expects a lot better decor & room furnishings/facilities. Garden needs a good working bee. Positives. Good breakfast. Free wifi. Near shops & a pub.

Stayed here in September in the big family room although in the end was travelling alone. Welcome is good, I didn't particularly have a problem with paying on arrival but this could have been advised in advance. The building is quite grand and has some history and so I expect is not easy to upkeep. My room was clean enough... More

Won't stay here again. Not impressed at having to pay as soon as got through front door, without seeing our rooms. Our room was ok but we were niggled about little things - had booked weeks before so they knew three adults were staying in the room but only two teas cups & two water glasses provided (and no biscuits...
