We stayed here for just one night after our visit to York where we had stayed in a terrible B&B we had been bought the night away as a gift and I can't wait to go back. We had a lovely welcome, the room was lovely and comfortable and very clean just what you want. I would recommend this B&B... More

Recently stayed two nights at Carlton Lodge on a walking weekend, The place is beautifully maintained and attractive and nothing was lacking. The owners give a warm friendly welcome, the breakfast was very good including as much Arabica coffee as I could safely put away. We all thought it was a great place to stay.

Excellent bed and breakfast on the edge of the small market town of Helmsley. Hosts were very nice, all of the rooms looked to be recently renovated and very clean to a very good and high standard. Very helpful as we needed early start breakfast and the food was excellent too. Would stay here again.

Booked a double room through laterooms, turned up and we were given a twin!!!. Checked the booking with laterooms and they confirmed that I had booked a double. A total rip off from an arrogant owner who said we'd booked a twin and ruined a romantic weekend away. Self classified 4* because there is no way in a million years... More

We had two nights here, it was comfortable, extremely clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful. The Yorkshire breakfast was very good and Helmsley village was delightful. A good staging point for the North Yorkshire Moors, Whitby and Scarborough.

We stayed for the Bank Holiday weekend and thought it was a really nice place. There was plenty of car parking, and the room was ample big enough with pleasant décor. There was lots of storage and the hospitality facilities were excellent. The 'Yorkshire' Breakfast (don't dare call if full English!!) was brilliant - so good I had to cut... More

We had a room at the front of the hotel, which was a decent size and nicely proportioned.the bathroom was fine too. Our only real complaint is that it was very expensive for what it is and we got much better value at the Feathers where the bed was bigger and harder (good) and the room far more stylish and... More

I was traveling for a wedding, and the hotels in the market place were all a lot more expensive, and given the number of people traveling to the are for the occasion, I was happy to search for a single room. I found the Carlton Lodge on Google maps and researched from there - it is only two minutes walk... More
