We stayed two nights in Feb. Ideal location, friendly helpful staff, lovely room, spacious, spotlessly clean, bathroom with excellent shower and toiletries provided. The whole place is beautifully decorated in keeping with the Georgian house. Breakfast was served by a cheerful waitress - it was delicious - lots of choice, beautifuly cooked and presented . The private car park is a great bonus - its only a short walk to the city centre but there is a bus stop outside the door if you want it - including the open top tour bus. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend Carlton house.

We stayed here for one night in February and couldn't have asked for more. It was easy to find and offered free parking at the rear. Although the space was limited, this did not cause a problem and the staff ensure they move your car if needed.

We were on the top floor. The room was immaculately clean. Not a mark anywhere. The room was modern yet cosy. The shower was hot and powerful which was nice. This doesn't happen often. The bed was comfy.

A brisk 10 minutes takes you almost into the centre is York and the hotel staff couldn't do enough to help you with a map and kind advice too.

In the morning, there was plenty of choice for breakfast and it was beautifully presented and yummy!

In addition, it was a cold weekend and the outside temperature (even in the day) did not go above zero, but the Carlton House was lovely and warm.

Can't recommend enough and my boyfriend and I can't wait to return. Thank you!

We stayed for 2 nights over half term and thought our family room was absolutely fantastic. It was the biggest room we have ever stayed in, so spacious, warm and cosy and lovely to have proper single beds for the children. There's a great lounge for guests' use with lots of games. The location was fab as we didn't need to use our car at all to get into the city which is about a 15-20 minute walk away. The owners and staff were great, so welcoming and friendly and recommended places to visit and eat. Breakfast was also fantastic, my son said it was superduperlicious with lots to choose from!! Can't fault it, a great find!

Room Tip: Room 1 is a huge and very comfortable room sleeping a family of 4.

Fell on Carlton House as we had walked out of Premier Inn who had rooms '''from £29''' on the window but were charging £130 + breakfast....disgracefull. Carlton House was the next place we enquired their price was £85 inc breakfast...DONE.

The room was spottlessly clean, warm, spacious with all we wanted for a night away. English breakfast to die for with super genuinly friendly staff.

Enjoyed it so much were there again next week

Room Tip: Our room number 16 at the top was lovely.

The 'From £29' is very misleading I agree, hope you enjoyed your 2nd stay as much as this one. You're review is much appreciated.

We had a 5 day stay. Very comfortable. Good food and very pleasant staff . Breakfast was de
licious plenty to choose from. Would certainly go back/Location was very good and reasonably near city centre.Numerous eating places not too far away.
Never had to use car the whole time as everything was near hand.
Will certainly recommend to anyone visiting York.

Last minute break on a whim, we booked in at this family run b&b in a lovely traditional York residence & in a great location. Clean, warm & super friendly. Great breakfast, everything cooked to perfection - these guys know how to work it. Very pleased with our choice. We will recommend to our friends & we will return.
