Can't think of anything negative to say. Great guest house in a lovely quiet location. The place is very well appointed from top to bottom. Really good breakfast. Cookies or cake for guests to help themselves to. We were gifted a nice heart shaped cake as it was our anniversary. Darren, the host, was very friendly and helpful. Excellent choice...

Just back from a fabulous 2 night break at Alcuin Lodge. Lovely spotlessly clean double room on the 2nd floor with a comfy bed meaning we had a great night's sleep despite the mini heatwave that was occurring! Darren was very helpful with directions and suggestions of places to visit - the ice cream boat being a favourite 🍦. It...

Lovely old building. Our second stay in this extremely clean hotel. Good location less than 10 mins walk from railway station. Lovely rooms. Great breakfast with plenty of choice. On street parking by means of parking pass supplied by Darren (your friendly host).

Just enjoyed a perfect, 3 night stay at Alcuin Lodge. It was ideally situated for the railway station ( we were travelling by train, one person from Scotland and the other from West Sussex, first meeting for almost 2 years) and all of York's many attractions. Our room was very clean & comfortable. Darren was most helpful suggesting good restaurants...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alcuin Lodge. The Guest House has a charm and personality of its own. Our room was cosy and well appointed. Darren is an excellent host. The breakfasts were first class. All of this at a very,very reasonable price.

The contrarian in my wants to do something to break the string of 5 star reviews. Well, too bad for me, because I am just another member of the choir, singing the praises of this excellent B&B.
