I visited York for 1 night with my husband and our two friends and Hilton Lodge kindly allowed us 2 double rooms for one night (unlike most York B&B's who either refused the two rooms and/or the one night stay!!).
The whole house was furnished beautifully in the Victorian style - I especially liked the bathroom with the rolled bath and period furnishings.
The room we had was nicely decorated but a badly placed radiator meant it was behind the heavy drapes so I found the room to be quite cold - however if the radiator was showing it would have spoilt the atmos of the room (and it was February!).
Breakfast was lovely with a large selection of cereals, fruit then the full English - which wasn't piled on as some are...nicely portioned!!
Debbie the landlady was very friendly and accommodating as we arrived a good 2 hours before check in and she allowed us access to the rooms for bag storage. She does a very good job of making you feel welcome and makes sure you know where things are.
Previous reviews of this B&B have been (in my opinion) unfair. A B&B should be comfortable, cozy and friendly which is what this was. If you want hotel style accommodation – book a hotel!!
