I have travelled to York several times now on business and stayed at other branded/chain hotels and find them in comparison to The Carlton House to be totally faceless and impersonal.
Having read the reviews on the Carlton within Trip Advisor I decided to move away from the mainstream and experience the personal touch that the Carlton claims to offer...I booked a double room (which turned out to be actually a double plus a single) for 2 nights Sunday 14th and Monday 15th as a valentines day treat for my partner and I...and I am extremely glad I did as from the minute we checked in I felt this guest house offered comfort, quality and service along with professional and very polite staff.
This spotlessly clean guest house is very tastefully decorated to a very high standard throughout, it was warm and inviting on the cold and wet day we arrived....the room we where allocated couldn't have been more perfect (room 14) it was on the top floor so very quiet...again spotlessly clean with lovely bedding and decor...the owner Mark even carried our case for us which I thought was a lovely touch, he was very friendly and even advised on places to visit and eat during our stay.
BREAKFAST mmmmm now that's another story...all I can say is yummy yummy yummy. Cooked to order from an extensive menu choice....and served in a lovely bright breakfast room...again echoing the style and quality of this establishment.
The owner Mark advised us that he was also available on site at anytime throughout our stay should we have any emergency or queries which again I found very comforting......and reflected the high level of service that the Carlton offers.
So all in all a place I would certainly recommend very highly and also revisit next time I am in York...great value for money and excellent location within walking distance from the train station and the centre of York....thanks Mark for a great stay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
