A first stay at Carlton House ... and there will be another, of that we're sure. A really friendly welcome following a long journey started our two-night break. Our room was spacious and spotless. Recommendations for lunch and dinner were spot-on! Breakfast was First Class. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Carlton House is only a 20 minute...

Just returned home after a lovely 2 night break. What a lovely warm welcome you get, the owners and staff here can't be more helpful, which is why this is our 3rd visit here this year. Rooms are perfect and the beds are so comfortable it's hard to drag yourself out for breakfast, but it's a must, breakfasts are excellent...

Our 2nd stay at Carlton House matched our 1st, excellent and no complaints at all. We chose Sunday & Monday night as last time we stayed the Saturday night and it was horrendous, full of drunk girls on hen nights and the bonus was the rooms were only £80 a night, a bargain. We were given a choice of 2...

Thank you for taking time to leave such comprehensive and positive feedback following your stay with us this week. It's fantastic to read your 2nd stay with us was as enjoyable as your first and that our Facebook page gave you an insight into what's happening in our historic city. You're right in saying our off peak Sun to Thurs...

Carlton House is the nicest B&B we've ever stayed in, in fact more enjoyable than many full blown hotels and excellent value when compared to other places in York. The owners Mark, Melanie & staff must be doing something we could tell by the conversation with the waitress at breakfast that 50% of their guests last weekend had stayed before,...

This accommodation boasts classy modern decor in a beautiful well kept old building. Staff are welcoming and their breakfasts are excellent, made with quality produce, cooked to order and well presented. We´ve stayed at some hotels where a breakfast is just thrown on a plate, swimming in fat and dry burnt bacon, but not here. The location is just perfect,...

Carlton House is our absolute favourite place to stay on our annual trip to York. This year we had a weekend break in November and Carlton House exceeded our expectations once again. We had a beautiful room on the first floor (great wallpaper!) with everything we could need, including lovely biscuits and Harrogate spring water and speedy free wifi. The...

We spent 3 relaxing nights at Carlton House in York, we've stayed here on numerous occasions now and continue to enjoy the first class hospitality and their comfortable accommodation. We don't request a particular room as they're all lovely and spacious, pristinely clean and lovely and cosy when the outside temperature has plummeted like it has of lately. We always...

This is our 4th stay at Carlton House, time goes so quickly we didn't realise it's nearly a year since we stayed. One stay there and you'll realise there's nothing more you'll need from a B&B it ticks all boxes. The owners Mark n Mel are the perfect hosts and go out of their way to ensure your stay runs...

We have stayed for the fourth time at Carlton House - and it was always an excellent base to explore York and the surroundings. Especially in autumn we love the warm welcome and the cosy and quiet rooms. It is only a short walk to the city centre and all the attractions, so the location is perfect.

This is the second time me and my partner have stayed at Carlton House whilst visiting York and we absolutely love it there. The family who own it are very welcoming and the house itself is gorgeous. Decorated lovely throughout, spacious rooms and the breakfast is probably the best I've had in a guest house or hotel. Can't wait to...
