This place is OKAY and there are no major complaints about anything in particular, it's just that I can't really see how it can be called a hotel, it's more like a Guest House or B&B. The 'hotel' is essentially rooms above a brasserie, owned by the same people. In fact entrance to the rooms is through the brasserie door....

Stayed at the Galtres Lodge for 3 nights on their short break deal. Very comfortable and friendly hotel. Happy and efficient staff and excellent food. The location drove us to this hotel, it is right in the heart of the old city a stones throw from all the shops and the cathedral. Breakfast is waitress service so not crispy overcooked...

Spent two nights at The Galtres this weekend, excellent location but the so called 'superior' double room (no:2) we were allocated fell far short of that title! The bed was reasonably comfortable, however, the duvet was far too small, also we did not expect to have to make our own bed! Chill winds blew in through the old ill fitting...

We know York well having lived just a couple of hundred yards from Galtres Lodge in the city centre. It may not be a full service traditional hotel but that is part of it's charm. It is a perfectly located restaurant with excellent rooms and a keen and enthusiastic team. Our en-suite double room on the second floor was great...

Just in the city centre, by the Minster, small lane downstairs, beautiful view over the window. Staff are nice and friendly. Good value to stay here. I'm having a single room here and it meets everything I need.

Visited here with my friend for a Christmas shopping trip. Booked for 1 night. Bear in mind I have stayed here twice before, once with my partner and a previous time with my friend. We always opt for here as the staff are very helpful and friendly and the location is excellent. My friend and I had a twin room,...

Hotel in a good position but room poor. On first appearance the two single beds were sagging and on further inspection they creaked when we just touched them. Each bed had a different head and base and the one my husband had collapsed when he tried to sit on it. The staff did not seem surprised and said they would...

I am sorry you were not happy with the beds and did not enjoy your stay. The problem with the bed was checked immediatelly and was found to be a loose connector on one single slat on the base under the mattress,this has been replaced.I don't really think that this could be termed a collapsing bed,as a loose slat does...
