“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

Everything about Crook Lodge is excellent....from the minute we arrived until we left we were made to feel really welcome. The breakfast is the best we had ever had. We had previously lived in York for a number of years so knew the area and we wanted somewhere we could leave the car and not have to use it again during our stay so the location is ideal. We had a room on the ground floor which although small was lovely and comfortable. We didn't experience any noise from passers-by or from the railway line. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to go back.

Lovely house in a superb location for walking to York (5 mins) and the station (5 mins). Also handy having the car park. Brian is very welcoming and helpful and his breakfasts are the best we've experienced.

We were in the kingsize bed in room 4 - lovely and comfortable although rather a small room and bathroom. Unlike a previous reviewer, I liked the view across to the York Wheel. I also didn't find the trains (which do pass very close) a problem.

However, unfortunately the one disadvantage is that there is considerable noise into the early hours, from passers-by who have been drinking in York. As a light sleeper, this spoilt it for me. However, if you sleep like a log you wont worry!

Brian the host most welcoming and accommodating. Car parking not large but,what the heck, you cannot have everything! Well located for the town with a pleasant stroll thro' nice gardens to centre of York (10 mins). Room good, bathroom small but adequate (and how long do you stay in a bathroom?). Breakfast excellent. Brian is a wealth of knowledge on the area. Room was alongside railway into York station but it is not a main line route so didn't disturb us at all.
We stayed from 18th to 22nd Oct and thoroughly enjoyed it and will be using Crook Lodge again.
Many thanks Brian

Crook lodge is conveniently located for the town centre and takes less than 5 minutes to walk there by walking through a nearby beautiful park. The car park is more like a driveway which can fit 2 cars wide and so when you park in the drive, you do get blocked in by other cars. You are requested to leave your car key on a hook downstairs so that your car can be moved as and when by other guests or staff which isnt ideal or the most security concious. The rooms are clean and comfortable but very very small and incredibly hot which made it uncomfortable to stay in the room for very long. The breakfast was fantastic and plentiful. Wi-Fi was non-exsistent but most likely because our room was abit away from the router. The train track also runs right next to the house so if you are a light sleeper, I would not recommend. Luckily the trains did not effect us but they do sound like they are coming into the house. Crook lodge is ideally located but over priced for the size of the room and the facilities on offer. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and found the location to be perfect for what we needed.

Very friendly management and staff. Room very hot and had to keep the window closed throughout our stay because of a swarm of horse flies in the honeysuckle outside the window. Owner lent us a fan, but didn't help much. Car parking very odd and had to keep car keys in room so staff can move the car when necessary. Brings the subject of insurance into question. Breakfast varied and plentiful. Owner very helpful and informative. Bathroom tiny and the over sink light didn't work. Cobwebs in the bathroom and door didn't close fully. Not disabled friendly. Delightful view over the public car park. Ideally situated for the city centre. Probably will not return, but best wishes to them.

Room Tip: Room (4) was small, hot, next to a railway line and had no view.

My friend and I stayed 2 nights and we were really impressed. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the bed and linen were clean and soft. The bathroom was lovely and clean with little lotions and things provided, towels were clean and soft. Brian and his wife were exceptionally good hosts and the breakfast was outstanding. They went the extra mile for us and other guests. It is really close to town which is a bonus.I will definitely be staying there again and I highly recommend this lovely guest house to everyone. The price is very good also. 5 stars and kudos to the owners.
