The hotel is difficult to locate by car due to the pedestrianisation of York's historic centre. (Retractable bollards restrict traffic from 10.30 to 16.00 every day.) The directions were sent with the booking but, with no map, it was impossible to locate the precise route required. I walked to the hotel to obtain instructions for parking (situated 5 mins walk...

Small bedroom, as expected, however very clean and cozy! Comfortable bed, excelent breakfeast! The only complain is about the internet in the bedroom that was unstable. Small TV but who cares! A little bit noise, but still a very good option, with a wonderful location near York Minster! I would recommend for everybody going to York!

2nd visit and again cannot fault it, booked a superior room this time due to our room being a bit small the first time and was not disappointed, had a room at the back so was very quiet, you would not think you were in the heart of the city, great breakfast and lovely staff. Will be staying again when... More

The accommodation is right in the city centre on Petergate which is a great place to be. My single room was spacious and clean and staff were all friendly. As it is very central expect done noise after pubs and clubs kick out, it was nothing that cheap ear plugs couldn't fix but might be a shock to other people.... More

If you are looking for a good ' chill out' escape try Galtres Lodge. Just perfect, with its central location where York's unique charm is on your very doorstep and where lovely food and great hospitality is found within this small hotel.

We normally do not keep soya milk,however most guests with an intolerance will inform us prior to arrival so we can organise something,which we would have done.We were not then requested to get some for the next day. On meeting the guests at reception I was just greeted with the towels tatty and the remote doesnt work,they were left at... More

Right in the centre of York (almost next to the Minster) and ideal base for exploring this compact and fascinating city. Room was OK (tiny toilet) and breakfast was great (traditional and variations) - nice not to have to pay a supplement for kippers etc. The two night deal with dinner on one night is good value. Did'n use parking... More
