“nice but a bit of a hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Stayed here recently and found the staff very nice and the breakfasts excellent. Unfortunately we had a suite with a seperate toilet outside our room which was a bit inconvenient but we coped. Plenty of parking but its a good walk town. Would we stay here again? Probably, but would try for something a bit nearer if we could.

Room Tip: Make sure you get one with a full en-suite and at the rear of the hotel if you can

We visited our son attending The University of York and looked for location close by. As the Fourposter Lodge was only 10 minute walk to residence and based location, having read other reviews and viewing pictures of the rooms on the website, we booked 4 nights. Upon arrival we immediately liked the look of the outside, quaint, well groomed and welcoming. Once inside, we felt the same way. The waiting area and dining room with its stained glass, pictures, wall sconces, colorful decor, cleanliness and staircase was welcoming and we were greeted by Gary and our room was all ready. We were pleasantly surprised by our spacious, bright and flowery room and of course the fourposter bed. It immediately reminded me of years ago visiting my Grandmothers house. One thing I will mention is that we also wanted toilet and shower facilities in our room and because we were later booking we did not have selection of rooms for the 4 nights. In room 3 we did have our own facilities that were perfect for us, however if you are a larger person or do not like small spaces, the shower in this room is very small. My husband is 220lb man and he could just get in the shower doors. We would book earlier next time and inquire about shower size in other rooms. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast every morning and Gary and his staff were very accommodating and made us feel right at home. The location is 15-20 minute walk to The Shambles and town centre which we also liked because we enjoyed the walk every day. We truly enjoyed our stay at The Fourposter Lodge. It was spotlessly clean, good location for us, comfortable bed, lots of hot water, friendly and welcoming and we would definitely recommend this B&B and would stay there again.

What a wonderful place to stay, very clean and tidy. First time to York and went via tripadviser to book a b&b for the 4 of us. If we ever go back to York we would definitely stay there again. Breakfast was fab. We loved the decor it goes went with the fourposter bed in room 9 and the house. Thanks for a fab weekend and the weather was wonderful to.

We stayed there for 1 night on the 12th of January 2013, Gary & his daughter were very helpful & the breakfast was also very good, the room was clean & warm. After reading some of the other reviews we were a little concerned about our stay, we needn't have been it was overall a pleasant stay & I would definitely stay there again if we are ever in York.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3 which was good for a short stay but if I was staying longer I would prefer a roo...

We stayed here four two nights in January for a quick weekend break. We found our room to be very comfortable, and having a warm room, especially at this time of year was a really welcome find. The room was larger than we thought, the bed comfortable, the decor cosy, and the room clean and tidy.
Breakfast was served quickly, politely, and was cooked to perfection, which set us up for a days exploring the city perfectly. Overall, we would be more than happy to stay here again, and will recommend this hotel to our friends.

Thank you.

We arrived in York without accommodation and had this place booked through the tourist centre. Whilst the hotel was a little outdated, Gary, the owner I presumed, was very friendly and helpful. He provided us with parking around the back as front street parking was not available.
Our room and its amenities were comfortable and whilst it was not a large room, the three of us managed without difficulty.
Breakfasts were enjoyable and all the staff we met were polite and attentive. Gary also recommended a pub to have dinner at, and we were more than happy with the food ordered there.
Additionally, we were able to walk to the walled city of York in about fifteen minutes.
Overall, this was an enjoyable stay.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

The room we had was very functional, clean and warm with very busy decor. Reminded me a bit of the sixties with the wallpaper but no disrespect as decor is a matter of choice. I feel sorry for whoever has to clean all the lace aroud the bed. Having a warm room was a big plus as the weather had turned very cold over the weekend. The shower was very tiny, and if a larger person tried to get in I think they would have a bit of trouble but as were are short it wasn't too bad apart from the water not being so hot, maybe it was us not working it properly ! I daresay if we asked we would have been told how. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We were able to park at the back in the parking bays directed by the owner. No problem there. He also told us a quick way into town which was helpful. I wasn't too keen on the breakfast, but again a matter of taste. To conclude we found this property a little bit too far out of town for our needs.
