“Friendly, perfect location but the main railwayline is next door”
Reviewed 26 September 2010

Stayed for a few days in York and the Crook Lodge is perfectly situated so that you can leave your car and walk in to the city which is just a few minutes stroll away.

Likes: Perfectly close to centre, Friendly, helpful hosts, great breakfasts, comfy bed......

Dislikes: Tiny bathroom and noise. The mainline railway has been "removed" from location map on the Crook Lodge web site but it runs right along side the house. Don't expect a lay in during the week as the trains start early and the house shakes. On the Friday night, there was a lot of noise from revellers returning home until quite late.

Summary. York is a busy City so expect some noise and if you're looking for a guest house which is situated close to the centre but just far enough out to be rat run, this is as good as it gets....so recommended.

Myself and my partner arrived at Crook Lodge for a 3night stay. The guest house is a lovely Victoria building built in 1951 and is very charming from the outside. Unfortunately the standard of accommodation didn’t live up to a 4star guest house rating in my opinion, each and every picture on their website is very cleverly taken and doesn’t resemble the rooms accurately. Our room the superking double was nice but lacking any finishing touches, literally a bed, wardrobe, side table and TV where in the room. I have visited many other 4star guest houses in the UK and Crook Lodge unfortunately is the worst and ironically the most expensive place I have stayed.

Upon waking up after our first night’s sleep I informed Brian the owner that our TV had a poor reception and although he did fit a new aerial most channel where still unavailable with the excuse of tree’s blocking the signal. Now unless this guest house has only just introduced freeview TV which I doubt I feel this was a poor excuse and the problem should have been resolved before any guests arrived. I took advantage of the free wifi during my stay which everything evening goes off at 11pm, I’m guessing the owners switch the router of when they go to bed maybe it would be nice if they informed guests of this.

Although this guest house was clean and tidy upon my next trip to York I will not be staying at Crook Lodge due to the poor quality rooms / lack of finishing touches, bad TV reception, unreliable wifi and the unjustified expensive price tag.

We had a very friendly welcome to a nice, hospitable B&B. Well located not too far from the Minster and central York. Clean room with good facilities, although perhaps a little on the small side. Decent cooked breakfast. Would stay there again. PS - would recommend 31 Castlegate for a nice meal out!

Stayed overnight Saturday to Sunday and really enjoyed our short visit.
The rooms are lovely, well decorated, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious.There is car parking in a small area in front of the house and in York this is a plus.
Brian was an excellent host and recommended several places were we might eat. All in all a very nice Guest House in a great location .

This was our 6th time at Crook Lodge and was fab! The hotel is very classy decorated and the breakfast is second to none! We are going back again in December and will be returning no doubt next year!
It is the best hotel we have stayed in for a long time!

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Crook Lodge in September 2008. The room we had was lovely, warm and comfortable. Brian, the proprietor, was very helpful and served breakfast where a special order was not too much trouble. He also had very helpful suggestions for restaurants and hotels and things to see in general. The walk into the city was brilliant through the park where we were entertained by the native squirrels being fed. There was a food and wine festival in the city at the time of our visit. If you want a lovely warm and friendly place to stay where the breakfast was wonderful, then you cannot go past Crook Lodge. If and when we return to the area, we will stay there again.
