The B&B itself is just average, somewhat older and tired. Minuses: The mattress was well-used and lumpy. Breakfast was fine, but nothing special and had to ask to have the cereal containers refilled. The proprietress was off-putting. What I couldn't tell from the pictures is that room 11's shower is right in the room, so if you're sharing you have... More

Thank you for your comments. The property is at present been updated but unfortunately does not happen over night, However as I have mentioned before I do not want to take away the Victorian aspect of the property so some rooms do have a Sanderson feel to them. I think mattresses must be a personal choice as the comments vary... More

I stayed in the guest room at the back of the hotel with a separate toilet which I preferred. The bed was so comfy and room was quiet overlooking cathedral. The room was clean and had all you needed and breakfast was very generous. All in all it is very good value for money. It is about a 10 minute... More

We stayed in room 5 at the Four Poster Lodge for 2 evenings and had a lovely stay. The room was lovely and clean with a patio window out to where our car was parked which was brilliant for bringing in our luggage. The En Suite had a bath in which was a real luxury when you consider how reasonably... More

Having stayed there this weekend with my partner and sister in law we found it to be a perfect base for visiting family. Central to York City and very pleasant. Shirley couldn't do enough for you. Breakfast was amazing. Well worth every penny spent. Will totally be coming back.

Looking at the website (as normal for most accommodation) it looks better than what actually it is. As other reviewers have stated, the bathroom is a closed off portion of the bedroom and very small. Bed, whilst a four poster, has nothing to recommend from any other type of bed. Duvet cover and hand towel were stained. Breakfast was unusual... More

Thank you for your feed back. Your quite right we are 3* based on the fact that some of our bathrooms are small. I do have photo's of rooms on my webpage for people to look at and decide on what it is they want from the room as they are all different. The bathrooms were built some years back... More

A beautiful Victorian house with some lovely features. We were very comfortable and it was just a 15 minute walk into town. Breakfast was good and the owners were friendly. A great find and pretty good value.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. What a fantastic B&B and only 5 minutes from the centre. Shirley gives you a warm welcome. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast sets you up for the day. Would book again.
