The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, our room was comfortable and warm with good quality, modern furniture. The en-suite was a bit bigger than usual with a modern shower, it was great to be... More

York is a fabulous city to visit with plenty to see and do. Although this was our first stay at Carlton House, hopefully it will not be our last. We travelled by train and Carlton House was about a ten minute walk from the main station. We were warmly welcomed by Melanie and check in was quick and easy. Our... More

Great location to stay, no close to town and well appointed. Room was comfortable, breakfast exceptional and parking was available. I would stay here again if I ever come back to York. Thoroughly recommend the Carlton House!

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... More

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... More
