“Great location with unique high quality accommodation and history”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Rented the tower for a special birthday gathering for 6 people. The 3 double bedrooms on 3 floors are very unusual and well furnished. The lounge and dining area on the ground floor are very comfortable, the kitchen is good. As others have said the view along the river from the roof is spectacular and the location could not be better - right on the middle of the city within East walking distance of everything.
There is parking for 2 cars in a lock up garage underneath the bridge.
Expensive but unique and well worth the money

“Most brilliant base for special celebration”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Mike was the most attentive and generous host, welcoming us warmly and celebrating my 50th birthday with a chilled bottle of chilled champagne! In all the communications in preparation - nothing was too much trouble for him, and he was flexible in allowing a later checkout and welcoming our guests to this truly unique property. The property is well equipped and refurbished to the highest possible standard.
Travelled with teenage and younger children and young adults and welcomed friends from York and beyond. The tower is incredibly spacious and yet feels homely. The roof terrace and walled garden make ideal place to hosts family and friends. I had drinks and birthday cake on Saturday 'at home' in the Tower with guitars for live music on the terrace; and I cannot imagine a more memorable place for a grand birthday celebration. Even parents in the eighties were able and enjoyed climbing onto the roof for the 360 degree views of York!
We enjoyed walks on the Roman Walls and in the Snickleways, time in the Minster and Museum gardens and even collected scones and croissants freshly prepared in the coffee shop across the road!
I'm wondering when my next opportunity to host such a special weekend here might be booked!
Anything that we didn't like? We didn't want to go home!
Will never forget our stay in Lendal Tower!

“Great History, Great Location”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We booked a long weekend at Lendal Tower. The tower has a great history and has kept many of its historic features but with some modern twists. Going between floors via the fun spiral staircase gives it a great castle feel and the rooms are spacious and comfortable.
The communal living room is a great space and the rooftop terrace has great views, it would be an amazing place for a few drinks and a BBQ on a summers day.
It is also in a great central location, with easy access to various attractions, the wall and the information centre.

“Absolutely Fabulous!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We visited Lendal Tower a few weeks ago and had a great experience. The tower is an absolutely fabulous place to stay and rather than a stay it was an experience. It was like stepping into history and experiencing a medieval weekend in one of the most historic and beautiful cities in the UK. Although the stay wasn't cheap, it was worth every penny - and the highlight was the roof terrace on top where we could relax and see all of York. Will definitely be returning next year.
