We visited our son attending The University of York and looked for location close by. As the Fourposter Lodge was only 10 minute walk to residence and based location, having read other reviews and viewing pictures of the rooms on the website, we booked 4 nights. Upon arrival we immediately liked the look of the outside, quaint, well groomed and welcoming. Once inside, we felt the same way. The waiting area and dining room with its stained glass, pictures, wall sconces, colorful decor, cleanliness and staircase was welcoming and we were greeted by Gary and our room was all ready. We were pleasantly surprised by our spacious, bright and flowery room and of course the fourposter bed. It immediately reminded me of years ago visiting my Grandmothers house. One thing I will mention is that we also wanted toilet and shower facilities in our room and because we were later booking we did not have selection of rooms for the 4 nights. In room 3 we did have our own facilities that were perfect for us, however if you are a larger person or do not like small spaces, the shower in this room is very small. My husband is 220lb man and he could just get in the shower doors. We would book earlier next time and inquire about shower size in other rooms. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast every morning and Gary and his staff were very accommodating and made us feel right at home. The location is 15-20 minute walk to The Shambles and town centre which we also liked because we enjoyed the walk every day. We truly enjoyed our stay at The Fourposter Lodge. It was spotlessly clean, good location for us, comfortable bed, lots of hot water, friendly and welcoming and we would definitely recommend this B&B and would stay there again.
