Stayed here with my two girls for a sightseeing weekend in York. We had a family room so there were two small sofa beds and the four poster. I let them sleep in the four poster, so the pull out bed was a little small for me, but this was to be expected and was explained in the room description.... More

Stayed here recently while working in York and being used to typical 'business' hotels (Premiere Inn, Holiday Inn Express etc.) this was very different. The lodge is an attractive building located on a quiet residential street with good access to the nearby University. The room had a lot of character with an actual four poster bed and was pleasantly furnished... More

The owner Shirley was very kind and polite. She helped us to get a taxi for our daily outings. The location was very convenient to public... More

I stayed here for a weekend with my 7 year old daughter on her birthday weekend, and we were warmly welcomed on arrival. The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable, with a TV and free WiFi. The ensuite bathroom was well laid out, and the only reason I have not given 5 stars was because of the shower which... More

Very well located for our purposes, nice old house not too heavily restored or tacky. The four poster thing is a bit of a gimmick but our room was decently furnished. Decent welcome and we squeezed our car in at the back. No breakfast until 8.15 if that matters to you.

I am regular visitor to the Four Poster on trips to work at the University. The house is a rather grand building with high ceilings and wonderful turn of the previous century features. The rooms have a lovely character and are spacious. Beds are comfy, there is a tv in each room and free wifi. The bathrooms are snug but... More
