This was my second stay at Yorke Lodge and I am sure not my last.
Vicky has created a lovely home from home that exudes calm and comfort and service comes with a smile from all the team. There is a choice of accommodation that is equally good for families (first trip) or solo travellers (second trip) with well appointed rooms, modern facilities and really thoughtful extra touches that make such a difference to a weary traveller.
Breakfasts are excellent and served in an airy and interesting room overlooking the garden. A good choice of both continental and cooked food is freshly served along with a larger than average choice of drinks, which caters for most palates and diets.
The bustling Westgate area of the city is only 5 minutes flat walk away and the city centre only a couple more minutes after that. All of the city is easily accessed by foot and as there is parking available, the car can be left behind whilst you explore, shop, go to the theatre or eat. You can stroll along the river or up over the downs and along the Pilgrims' way if you feel more energetic.
A delightful place to stay in a really handy location.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Yorke Lodge Bed and Breakfast is a family run B&B located only 10 minutes stroll to the City Centre & Cathedral. Built in 1887 the house still retains many of its original features today. Now with 8 en suite bedrooms this is a quintessential Victorian Villa. Facilities include elegant breakfast room and sun terrace. All bedrooms recently refurbished & offer a comfortable ‘home from home’ feel but with all the modern day extras you would expect to see in a hotel. The B&B is dog friendly, has a lovely garden and is a peaceful oasis if you'd prefer not to be right in the city centre. Vicky O’Shea has owned and run Yorke Lodge for over 15 years and loves welcoming guests every day. You can be assured of a warm welcome, local knowledge and friendly, personal service throughout your stay. We are adding a conservatory in 2017 which will further enhance your stay at any time of year. ... more less
