“Wonderful family run hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

We spent two nights here whilst visiting York. A very clean and comfortable hotel with friendly and helpful staff. My wheat intollerance was no problem at breakfast, they had gluten free bread and gave me more bacon instead of a sausage. Bar staff were very friendly and bar prices were very reasonable. We parked outside on the road for free, there is also a small car park out the back, best if you are a confident driver and used to backing on mirrors. Easy walk into York City Centre, just ten to fifteen minutes and you are in the centre. Jorvic centre is very interesting as are the many old streets including The Shambles, many places to visit, shop and eat. The National Railway Museum is free to visit and less than ten minutes walk from Wheatlands Lodge Hotel, there is a short cut through the Railway station but you need to go over the bridge to get to the other side.

Room Tip: Rooms are on three levels with several on the ground floor so no stairs.

Glancing over the previous reviews I can only say "ditto". From the warm reception (our room wasn't quite ready as we arrived early)-to the staff bringing us our choice of a beverage while we sat in the lobby, after parking our car for us as the spots are tight for us rookie American drivers...:)..the entire experience here was excellent. Gladly recommended a restaurant for dinner and called to reserve...no matter how busy they were, they seemed to handle all request and issues with ease.
Breakfast was very impressive. Adequate staff waiting to get you whatever you might need...or look like you need.
I'm simply amazed tho in looking at the last 30 reviews or so, not one couple from the USA!!! Hey America, I know you must be going there....don't pass this place up!
Easy walking distance to everything York has to offer.

We stayed in October for two nights, a very friendly reception, a clean comfortable room, very well maintained, not expensive either. We were made to feel very at home, I have a wheat intolerance and staff in the dining room at breakfast made me a lovelly breakfast avoiding wheat and even had gluten free bread for toast. In the evenings when we arrived back there is a lovelly bar area, we enjoyed talking to other guests over a couple of drinks before turning in. There is a small car park at the rear but only for the confident driver, we parked in the road outside for free, at night there were plenty of spaces which were quickly snapped up in the morning as it is only a ten minute stroll into the centre of York or to the National Railway Museum. We will go back soon, please leave us a room!

Absolutely wonderful. Warm, cosy with a wonderful check in experience. Room was great with plenty of space. Breakfast offered was varied with a range of cereals, juices and fruit and yoghurt in addition to the normal range of cooked choices.

The rooms are excellent - large, well furnished, comfortable beds and warm. We arrived to leave our luggage early and were allowed into one of our rooms - which was so welcome on such a horrid cold day. The staff were all friendly, good service at breakfast. Near to York center - about 10 mins easy walking. I can recommend it.

Along with 7 friends I have visited York for the October Race Meeting 15 times in the last 20 years and we have stayed at the Wheatlands Lodge 9 times, most recently this year.
I can only agree with all the comments from other reviewers about the cleanliness, friendly staff, ideal location and good Yorkshire welcome you get at this woderful Hotel.
With staying so regularly we must have taken it for granted and are pleased to rectify this omission with this review. Thank you very much Wheatlands Lodge, belatedly!

Just spent a night at this hotel and had good experience from the minute the manager moved cars around to get us into the smallish car park to the well served breakfast! The room was clean and comfortable and the staff could not do enough for us. Great central location and value for money.
