The B&B was pleasant with a clean room with plenty of space. I would not say it was my favourite place. The room we had looked over the car park which I think may have contributed to the loss of some of the charm. The location was perfect, a short walk into York. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. Just not... More

We stayed three nights in April. We arrived late afternoon after a long drive and received a very warm welcome at the reception that made us relax immediately. The service was very professional, efficient and caring. We had a very nice room on the first floor facing to the main street but no traffic noise at all. We had very... More

This Bed & Breakfast oozes charm and character which is why we chose to return for a 2nd stay. The staff/owners are so friendly and obliging and the location is just perfect for visiting our daughter who's studying in York. The breakfasts are the BEST, quality ingredients and cooked with love. We will be back again next month and are... More

Stayed here last Bank Holiday Sunday night and´thoroughly´ enjoyed our night away. Lovely warm welcome, clean, spacious trendy chic decor.and a 1st class breakfast to boot. This b&b really undersells itself, it could be described as boutique at reasonable prices. Would reccomend to all and can´t wait to go back for a longer stay.

I've stayed at a couple of hotels just lately and I have to say they've been disappointing to say the least, mostly because they're faded and jaded and just haven't been upgraded over the years. I've also noticed a trend insofar that these places have had managers rather than owners. The Carlton House B&B was so refreshing, managed by 'live... More

From the moment we checked in we were relaxed and away from the normal pressures of work & home life. The hosts & staff are genuinely lovely people, happy to spend time with you and go out of their way to make your stay as stress free as possible. Our room was quiet, spotlessly clean and had all the comforts... More

Comfortable room with spacious en suite, within reasonable walking distance of York centre, but a bus stop immediately outside with a good service to the station and into town. Breakfasts excellent and friendly staff and owners.

I´ve stayed in many bed & breakfasts & hotels but Carlton House still remains my favourite. Such attention to detail for a family run B&B. You can´t beat a traditional style bed & breakfast with warm welcome & Yorkshire hospitality.

Planning this weekend away in York we could have just as easily booked to stay in a generic chain hotel but safe to say I'm delighted we didn't. Carlton House provided everything from a warm welcome to brilliant breakfasts. Our room was very comfortable and the whole place kept in a lovely condition. Mark and Melanie were fantastic hosts who... More

This was our 3rd visit to York, my husband is a cycling fanatic and what a great excuse to visit Carlton House when the city was hosting the Tour de Yorkshire and it passed right by the front of the bed & breakfast. It was a chilly day and Mark & Melanie being obliging hosts brought us out a cup... More
