“Faultless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Hows the saying go? If it's too good to be true, it usually is. Usually, unless you are talking about Primrose Lodge. It struck us that Deborah gathered together all the things that make hotels or B&B's not too good turn them on their heads and introduce them ay Primrose Lodge.
It was the little things that made our stay here excellent. Being greeted upon arrival with slices of cake, tea and coffe with fresh milk brought that oersonal touch to things.
This establishment is half way through a full refurbishment. if the room we stayed in is going to be anything to go by the end result will be fantastic. The room was clean, fresh, well decorated and modern. A wide range of tea, coffee and sugar was readilly available. A full size kettle and mugs. Yes, full size mugs not your 2 sips and it's gone cups! The bed was comfortable and the room was more than warm enough through the night.
Breakfast was excellent everything from cereal to the full monty. Well cooked, ample servings and piping hot. All served in a fast, friendly and efficient manner. Want somewhere to stay when visiting York or the surrounding area? Look no further than Primrose Lodge.

We have 3 children and usually struggle to find accommodation for the 5 of us, not a problem at Primrose Lodge! We were welcomed by the owner with home made chocolate cake and hot drinks! The owner is a lovely lady and very helpful. Our room, number 5, was clean, spacious and really well planned out with a double bed and 3 single beds. The owner booked a table for our evening meal at a local pub and when we arrived back, she had put some toys and books in our room to entertain the children!

We had a really nice stay, finished off with a lovely cooked breakfast in the morning.

We feel this is a really nice, attentive, friendly family run b&b and will definitely be back to stay in the future!

I booked at very short notice and arrived at about 9pm. I was warmly greeted and offered a hot drink and a slice of chocolate cake, both were excellent.
The room had been recently refitted and decorated to a very high standard, it was warm, bright, spacious and comfortable. The impression was of a five star hotel room.
Breakfast was to the same high standard, the home made jams and marmalades are a real treat and the view from the window during breakfast was magical on a frosty morning from inside a snug dining room.
