This is our 3rd stay at Carlton House this year and we wouldn't go anywhere else. We have relatives who live opposite the racecourse so the position is perfect for us. Clean modern spacious airey rooms, friendly courteous staff and a super waitress served breakfast. At £85 a night with free parking you'll find this place hard to beat.

We're regular visitors - a recommendation in itself. Friendly, professional , spotlessly clean, great location for the town - I really believe you can't go wrong at the Carlton House. Warmly recommended!

What a lovely place to stay if your thinking of visiting York. When we arrived we were met by the owners and welcomed with a friendly smile. We were advised of local pubs and eateries and given the keys to our rooms. The rooms were very clean, tidy and modern bit still held an old world charm with some original... More

We have just returned today from another great stay at Carlton House and cannot praise it highly enough. We have been coming here annually for a number of years now and would love to visit more often if it wasn't for work/family commitments. From the warm welcome you receive from the owners, Mark and Melanie, to the cleanliness and comfort... More

We stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night in August. We arrived early on the Friday and the team were really accommodating allowing us to check in early. They were really helpful and offered some recommendations on things to do, please to eat and general city information. The location is fantastic with a very short walk in town with... More

We booked last minute so weren't too sure what to expect. It turned out to be a very smart, business class B&B. The decoration is very modern though a little bold for my taste. Breakfast was nice though it's a shame it's served in the basement when there's a beautiful front room that I imagine doesn't get used much. The... More

Carlton House is well located for exploring the city of York: it is a 5 minute walk from Micklegate Bar, one of Yorks Mediaeval gateways, and approximately 10 minutes walk from York Minster. A "townhouse" style B&B, Carlton House has private parking at the rear of the property, so you car is quite secure. Being a townhouse, there are lots... More
