How lovely to stay in a hotel that treats you like an individual, from check in to super freshly cooked first breakfast. Thank you for making Sunday lunch so super for our group, from the table decor to the wonderful food, again freshly cooked. Chef checking all well with us before going for a well earned break. We had a... More

We checked into Galtres lodge and were quickly attended to by very helpful and friendly staff, our room was lovely on the very top floor, we had booked a standard room and were given the option of upgrading, we got the chance to pop our head in to one of the more expensive rooms and it was absolutely lovely but...

My first thoughts upon entering Gatres Lodge was that it was akin to a greasy spoon seaside cafe. The main entrance for the hotel is through this cafe. The building décor was very outdated, and although the building is old I feel more could have been done to accentuate it's beautiful features. The photographs used and art over the walls... More

On first sight York is a lovely city and nothing had really prepared us for the quaintness of the streets and the majesty of the Minster. Just two minutes from that historic edifice and in its own historic building, the Galtres Lodge was, as far as we were concerned, a serendipitous find and an experience which we are keen to... More

The location was great but that was all there was to like! Could hardly walk around the room, very poor accommodation. Award winning breakfast was very disappointing....... coffee being brought one cup at a time, having to ask for another...... very frustrating. Nicer accommodation outside the city centre with a good bus service....... wouldn't recommend this place at all. I... More

Stayed mid week with my 14 year old daughter. We had a twin room(10) which faced on to the front of the hotel. Although room was small and a little dated, it was clean and comfortable, did get a bit cold in the evening but we could manually put radiator on. Had breakfast both mornings, which was lovely and a... More

If I spend almost £100 on a hotel for the night outside of London I expect at least something reasonable. However this one had no redeeming features. I was put in Room 12, up a long set of stairs and through doors. The room was tiny. It just had a double bed and two windows about a foot square in... More

I am sorry you were cold in your room,every room has two heaters,one of which is a storage heater,the other is an electric heater with a sliding thermostat on the top,on the highest temperature the room is usually too warm.It is unfortunate you did not ask someone to come and check this as we could have fixed the temperature in...

Another great weekend at The Galtres....cozy room and huge bathroom which was on the cold side but soon warmed up with the extra heater. The usual superb breakfast and dinner on our 2nd night.....very generous portions of fantastic food and very reasonably priced wine. The staff were all very friendly and the night porter kindly let us in when we... More

just back from a two day stay in this hotel. Had contacted hotel by phone as we got lost, and from there they directed us to the car park that we could use for our stay. It's about a 2 or 3 minute walk from the hotel itself but was fine. Upon arrival we were booked in and directed to... More

We stayed in room 14 (a standard double in the attic) for two nights for our anniversary and it suited what we needed perfectly. A cosy little room with a comfy bed with crisp sheets, plenty of storage for two adults and plenty of tea and coffee. It did get a little chilly once the heating went off, but there... More
