I was inclined not to write this review as it will not be favourable to Jeff who was a friendly host. We all get only one chance to make a first impression and the front garden, which needs some work, and the back of the entrance hall front door both set the tone; it was grubby and needs to be...

The building is an old Victorian home & has for many years been run as a B&B & it is quintessentially English. Visitors from overseas will see this as typical England For those who like the clean, sterile rooms of modern plush... More

Turned up and was given room 1 on ground floor. The room was fitted with secondary double glazing, it was very hot, opened inner section only to find the outer windows here bolted down, hence a very stuffy night spendthrift here. The linen was very clean. Bathroom rather small. Rate quoted was £88 for a double including breakfast, asked for... More

Beware, it would appear that not all rooms are to the same standard shown in photos. Our room (4) was dirty, dated, smelly and very small. The toilet bore the leavings of previous guests, the carpet looked like it hadn't been bothered by a cleaner for some time and the walls were paper thin. Also a bit stingy with tea/coffee/water....

Just arrived home after a lovely three day break staying at The Holly Lodge. This lovely B & B does exactly what it says on the tin.....perfectly positioned for a relaxing stroll right into the centre of beautiful York. We were welcomed by the owner Geoffrey, who is a very amenable, down to earth, unobtrusive host who is always at... More

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
