Arrived on Good Friday for a two night stay, Shirley was there to welcome us, no problem parking, room 10 (front) ready for us, everything was perfect, clean and well equipped, Shirley makes sure you have everything you need, and advises that she does sometimes have to go out, but leaves a number for if you need anything, bear in...

Thank you for your feed back. I am so very sorry if I gave you the impression that I was not happy about you parking your car, that was certainly not my intention. I agree the linen is in need of refreshing and I have just purchased all new bedding. I am also greatly concerned that you found the staff... More

When we arrived at Fourposter Lodge we received a warm welcome. The room was small and cosy, though a little outdated. The bed was comfy and we both slept well. The B&B is located close to the city centre, and far away enough so as not to be disturbed by the crowds on a Saturday night. Breakfast was good, and... More

Went to York for a friend's wedding. Very comfortable, bright, warm room, working modern TV, spacious bathroom/shower. Staff/owner friendly. We stayed two nights and the room was cleaned while we were out and tea things replaced, which was much appreciated. Nicely positioned too - we expected a longer walk from the station but it's surprisingly close. Cooked breakfast good quality.... More

The amount for a room at the Fourposter Lodge includes breakfast and having been told this was from 8am to 10am initially, we went down at 9.35 to be told that it had actually finished at 9.30am (all of 5 mins ago). When I say told, we heard the cook shouting loudly from the kitchen, saying that we were "too... More

I am so sorry there was confusion over breakfast times, The person picking your keys up must have miss heard me as we have always done breakfast 8.30 to 9.30 on a weekend. We do have a brochure in all the bedrooms giving all relevant information. Again I do apologise. for the misunderstanding and hope it didn't spoil your stay... More

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
