Location: 20minutes walk into town centre, on main arterial road so plenty of busses (take your bus pass). Service: Personal and obliging, so rare these days. Value: There are a few low price chain hotels within 10 min walk, BUT add on 24hr car parking, Full Yorkshire breakfast and there is nothing in it (charm comes as standard). Our second...

Thank you for taking time to leave your warm complimentary review, its good to read you both enjoyed your stay with us. Its beyond me why were not rated higher given our positive reviews, but you've only got to look at restaurants in York to see there's something amiss No 1 is a deli with a massive 24 reviews.

There is not much more to add to the already excellent reviews of Carlton House. Room great, breakfast great, stairs up to our room after breakfast not so great! This is the only guest house that we have ever stayed at twice. Well done.

Couldn't have been any better, perfect hotel for great value. Room was lovely and breakfast was delicious with a choice of fruit, cereal, English breakfast or smocked salmon and scrambled egg. Fantastic location and great staff, would definitely use this again. Helpful advice when you arrived about the local area. .

Having read many of the excellent reviews for Carlton House we decided it was the place to stay. We weren't disappointed, it truly lived up to expectations. The room was cosy and clean. Breakfast was so tasty and the variety outstanding. We really enjoyed our two nights and have already recommended Carlton House to others.
