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

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.
