“Very Dated, In need of refurbishment”
Reviewed March 29, 2010

I Stayed here with a colleague for one evening, the manager was very pleasant, however the overall impression was that it was very dated, the shower pressure was awful !
Location good, however for £88/night for two people i think you will be better off in a travel lodge, i would not stay here again and would not recommend

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Holly Lodge Hotel. Staff were friendly and approachable, and the room was clean and spatious. The hotel is well situated in the city with easy access to the local facilities. Highly recommended!

I was not overly impressed with our stay at the Holly Lodge recently. While our room was large (it appeared to have been previously a sitting room), the carpets were pretty dingy and overall a fairly run down feeling about it. The parking was free as advertised though. The walk into town was a bit more of a hike that I'd anticipated and the river walk was flooded, so not useable. After the first night, we used a car service and that worked out just great - just 5-6GBP from city center to b&b for 4 of us. The last morning apparently the boiler had gone out to our room, which was unfortunate given it hovering around 0 outside and resulted in no hot water in the bathroom as well. I do not remember the last place we stayed while in York, so I cannot say how this compared. And, to be quite honest, Holly Lodge probably suffered compared with an amazing b&b experience elsewhere the night before.

We have used this Guest House twice now. It is in a very easy to find location if you are new to the area, and has parking (many hotels this close to the city centre have none) although this is under trees - one of which is home to an elephant with a stomach upset judging by the deposits on our car! :)
From the hotel it is a picturesque and leisurely 10-15 min stroll alongside the river to the attractions of York city.
The rooms are clean, spacious, and well equipped. Ground floor rooms are available too, which is great for anyone with mobility issues.
Breakfast is very good and the owner is both friendly and helpful.
We are in the area again next month and will be staying here again
