A fabulous return visit to Alcuin Lodge. Immaculate accommodation. A very warm welcome from host Darren. Always enjoy the fresh baking on arrival back each day. Great breakfast and being vegetarian is never a problem. A great 5 minute walk, through the park and into York city centre. Will definitely be returning once again.
