Unfortunately didn't get to sample the delights of this beautifully set out little hideaway. The rooms are fantastically decorated and the greeting by who I can presume is the owner was sublime. Unfortunately we weren't staying here, but at another venue across the road, we were offered a cup of fresh Yorkshire tea and cake upon arrival, which we mistakingly...

We had a girlie weekend in York and stayed at Primrose Lodge - the room was well appointed with all you could possibly need.

We found this B&B after being badly let down by one that was closer to York centre but, this turned out to be the best thing that could have happened!

My husband surprised me with a stay here for my 40th, as it was close to family. We had a very comfortable stay and Deborah also made us feel very welcome, she even gave me a bottle of bubbles to start the celebrations!

Top top B&B great food, location and fab host. Quality rooms and great attention to detail. Deborah our friendly host couldn't be more helpful. Perfect for local pub and York city - near park and ride. Best experience we have had in a B&B go go go

After scouring the Internet for a B and B near York, how lucky were we to find Primrose Lodge. After reading all the other reviews, we just knew this would be perfect for my husband myself and our friend. Thankfully, no stairs to climb and lovely big rooms with clean comfy beds and enough space so we weren't falling over...
