“Carlton House is Number 1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2009

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Carlton House. The location was ideal as it is only 5 minutes walk to the centre of town, the room was spacious , the staff was friendly, the service was first class and the breakfasts were fantastic. I recommend this place to anyone who is thinking of visiting York.

Stayed here for 2 nights with husband and 3 children aged 9,11,13. Usually impossible to find a family room big enough to accomodate us all, but this one was wonderful, with 'proper' beds for everyone and plenty of space. Room serviced beautifully between the 2 nights. Furnishings all to a very high standard. Breakfast fantastic, cooked to order and served by the most cheery, thoughtful staff imaginable. Wonderful, relaxing break from home and would definitely go back.

We stayed at Carlton House following family reccomendation. When we arrived we were met by Mark the owner who was very welcoming and reccomended good resaurants for evening meals. All rooms are decorated to an excellent standard, with clenliness to match, beds were extremly comfortable, The staff are freindly and bubbly and will do their best to accomodate your needs. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and was served between 7:45 and 9:15 which gave you the chance to get up early or later. There is a small private car park at the rear of the guest house which we found really useful. The Carlton House is a ten minute walk into York at a steady pace and York being quite small all attractions are close to hand. We will definatley be returning and reccomending to friends.

Carlton House was the perfect B&B for a weekend exploring York and its surroundings. 2 mins walk to the city walls, and a further 10 mins walk to the city centre. Lovely room, and breakfast of a good quality. Would also recommend Lo Spuntinos' an Italian resturant you pass on the way into York - great food.

Free parking was a plus.

We loved our big family room. High ceilings, nicely decorated, tea, coffee etc. We had a TV with video and a nice touch was the fact that there was a selection of kids films to keep early risers happy before breakfast.

There is a carpark and the hotel is a few minutes walk from the city walls.

Very friendly staff and the host recommended a few places to eat including The Old Siam Thai which was about a 10 minute walk away and was fantastic with great food and great service.

They have a lovely dining room and the breakfast was the best I've ever had. Lovely sausages and nice thick bacon as well as anything else your likely to want.

This really is a great hotel in a great location and if your going to York look no further.

We stayed with some friends in this family run hotel having read the reviews on "Trip Advisor" and we were not disappointed. The Hotel has comfortable rooms with very helpful/friendly staff and the location is ideal for sightseeing being only a short walk from the city walls and the National Railway Museum. The city centre is also very accessible from here. The breakfast is excellent and will set you up for the day!

First class and highly recommended
