“Excellent Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Galtres Lodge is ideally situated about two minutes from York Minster in a lively part of York. It occupies probably the best site for a hotel in the city. The food in this hotel is modestly priced but superb (and recommended by taxi drivers !) . The hotel which is clean and sparklingl is a grade 2 listed building and is quite old. A few rooms could be difficult to access by anyone with mobility problems so I suggest that it would be a good idea to ring the hotel to discuss your needs and the availability. I stayed there during the weekend of Le Grande Depart of Le Tour de France and the city was full and you could expect the staff to be under considerable pressure, if they were they did not show it - they were very good. In summary this hotel is a credit to The City of York.

Room Tip: Rooms 12,13 and 14 are at the top of a lot of stairs - ring the hotel to discuss

It was only a flying visit for us but I can't fault Galtres Lodge at all for the price we paid. York is so expensive these days and I got a king size bedded room with a large bathroom with a separate bath and shower, tea and coffee, a delightful breakfast for £95. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of everything and we thought the parking at a pub car park on Micklegate was reasonable and convenient. (10 minute walk £6.50.) Thank you all for a lovely stay.

Stayed at this B&B for my recent stay in York. I chose it because of its location to York Minster and other central attractions in the town. I certainly wasn't disappointed!!! The location is absolutely brilliant - literally around the corner from the Minster, the shambles and other attractions are within very easy walking distance - the york castle museum, cliffords tower etc.

After check in (at the restaurant) - a walk up a couple of flights of stairs to my room. No lift - but this is a very old building! Staff were very friendly and helpful (even helping me with my luggage up those stairs...thank you!) throughout my entire stay - especially a young girl (whose name i sadly can't remember) who helped me enquire about a tour and used her iphone! Breakfast was wonderful each morning (a few choices - i had the english breakfast one morning, croissants on another and eggs on toast on another..haha). The restaurant staff were lovely - the place was clean and had many choices on the menu (which guests staying at the hotel get 15% off!)...

The room was lovely - large double bed, wardrobe (which i didn't use), TV, tea/coffee making facilities and an ensuite. The one thing it didn't have was a telephone - which isn't a make or break item but it would have been handy especially in emergency situations. My room did have a small view of the Minster too...:)

Otherwise all i could stay is that if and when I am back in York, I will be staying at this lovely little B&B right in the centre of the lovely city of York!!!!

My wife and I love York and have stayed at various hotels around the city over the years, and this was a first stay Galtres Lodge. It beats all the others by a wide margin, exactly has they advertise, close to all the amenities, excellent restaurant serving tasty freshly made meals, Rooms clean and pleasant, staff very friendly and helpful.

First class place, thanks to all at Galtres. .

Have stayed here before and have not been disappointed, staff lovely and friendly, breakfast yummy with really great coffee. We will keep coming back - as long as the parking arrangements are still available and that the extraction is sorted.

a lovely hotel with the character to be expected of a building this age which has not been destroyed by modernisation. A really lovely atmosphere and the staff were really considerate. View of York minster from my bedroom window - room 7
