This was my third trip to York Lodge in three years and my longest stay so far - 8 nights. As always, the room was wonderfully comfortable with a huge bathroom including a proper, spacious tub and a very 'full on' shower. What sets this place apart is exceptional service. Everyone is super-friendly and helpful - I had a number... More

As a frequent business traveler in Africa, I usually stay in large chain hotels. I was a bit reluctant when I was booked at the York Lodge, but all reservations dissipated upon my arrival. I arrived late in the evening and was greeted by the owner (Margo) who welcomed me warmly. I truly appreciated my surroundings in the morning when... More

Fantastic large room with a great shower, the lodge has a lovely garden and is safe secure for those that are concerned. Family run and everyone is more than happy to help. I really felt looked after here. Easy 10 minute walk in the town centre. Thanks to Richard for giving me a bond coin :)

Homely and charming lodge. Feels like you have discovered a gem. Great breakfasts and delicious 3-course evening meals - if you want them! Every single detail has been thought about. Margot is a lovely lady to be around. Would love to take my whole family there. Only complaint is no bath in Room 2 😢

York Lodge really offers a home from home experience. Nothing is too much trouble for Margot, her family and their ovely staff. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are sumtuous and there are so many gorgeous little touches everywhere you look. The facilities are excellent , food is delicious and the overall guest experience offered is world class.

This is an amazing place to relax set in a beautiful lush garden setting. The owners are incredible and the food is amazing. It has a real classic country cottage feel. The common areas are very comfortable with many games and a well stocked honour bar. The wifi is much better closer to the office than in the rooms farther... More
