“We felt right at home.”
Reviewed July 12, 2009

Carlton House was even better than expected. Bed was comfortable, shower was hot, and we were welcomed like family. Breakfast is cooked to order or cold cereal if you prefer--and served with a smile. Everyone was extremely nice and it helped all the guests to be cordial. Directions from the train station were exact-had no trouble finding the Carlton House. Advice to get a York Pass for our 3 day/4 night stay saved us money. We would definitely stay here again.

Very pleasant hotel. Our room was very pleasant and adequate. the staff even helped us take our bags to our room on the 3rd floor. The breakfast was served in a very pleasant room that was located on the lower level. the breakfast was wonderful and the ambience matched.

Carlton House is located outside the walls of York. It was a little bit of a walk from the RR station. It was on a main street and easy to find. I would recommend this B&B , especially for its location and quality for the price.

The staff were very helpful in directing us to a restaurant and to the sites we wnted to see. They also allowed us to leave our bags at their location while we did some last minute sightseeing the day of our departure.

I was staying in Carlton House for 5 excellent nights. The service is really outstanding, rooms are nice and spacious, the shower nice and hot, the breakfast great. The atmosphere was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms facing the street might be a bit loud in the morning.

Stayed in a family room which was large, light and airy. Lovely quiet guest house, which is situated just outside the city walls, close enough to walk to the attractions and far enough away from the city centre noise. Free car park which was great and Mark, the proprietor, even brought my car around so that I could put in our cases; what service!
Fantastic breakfast, served by a lovely smiling waitress! We were all made to feel welcome and would stay again. Thankyou Melanie, Mark and all your staff.

Chose Carlton House based on past reviews from Tripadvisor website and they didnt fail us.
The b&b itself and the staff lived up to all our expectations with its clean lines and modern quirks in a lovely period propert complimented with a friendly and personal touch that you would expect from a family run bed and breakfast.
Check-out the website bright,clear pictures of bedrooms, what you see is what you get.
