Excellent service and a great location
Really can't fault Crook Lodge at all. The owners were extremely accommodating and bent over backwards to make us feel at home and make our stay as easy as possible. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the breakfast was delicious and the location is perfect for exploring York. We will definitely be back again as soon as we can.
Fantastic time again
My wife Sue and I have been going to this fantastic B&B for over 16 years, first with Brian and Louise and now with Carolyn and Dave, and it’s still the best place in York. Rooms are fab but breakfasts are awesome. We booked again for March, September and December 18 but were unable to get there in March due to the weather and the M62 being shut, but Carolyn was fantastic and understood our situation; we can't wait to get there in September. Best in York and we both know we will be coming here for years to come.
After being let down by an unfortunate circumstance with our original accommodation, we were glad to come across availability at Crook Lodge. Excellent location, welcoming hosts, beautiful breakfast and lovely, warm, cosy room. Will definitely
stay if we visit York again.
Friendly Guest House
From the friendly welcome to the fond goodbye, the owners of this guest house made our stay wonderful. Comfortable clean rooms, serviced daily and a wonderful breakfast to set us up for the day. Excellent location near the station but also near the city walls; less than a 10 minute walk to get to the heart of York. We will go there again.
Perfect location, especially for a road trip
This B&B is an easy walk to the old city wall, the Minster, and all related sites. It even has off-street parking which is fabulous if you are on a road trip. The owners were warm and welcoming and sent us off sightseeing with directions, maps and bottles of water (it was a pretty warm day in May). Our room was great and the king bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. We departed with directions through country villages and vales that greatly enhanced the next leg of our trip. The hosts could not have been more gracious. Would definitely stay there again. Service, location, and rooms were excellent.

A real gem of a B and B!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Crook Lodge. It was perfectly located a few minutes walk from the city centre and had the bonus of a parking space too! David and Carolyn were very welcoming and friendly with excellent local knowledge. The breakfast was excellent too. We would definitely use Crook Lodge again.
A great place to stay
Absolutely brilliant. Very friendly welcome. Hostess was out when we got there but had phoned and texted to say exactly when she’d be back. Told the access code to get key to let ourselves in and room key left out for us. As soon as we had settled in the hostess came to our room to introduce herself and made sure that we were comfortable. Explained breakfast and asked if there was anything else we required. The accommodation is just a five minute walk to the city, either through the museum gardens, alongside the river or on to the main road, all depending which part of the city is wanted. At the end of a very quiet cul de sac and with plenty of parking. We had a fantastic stay and will be visiting again. We have stayed in York a few times and found this the best accommodation so far.
Gem of a place
This is a beautiful B & B, convenient for the city. Parking on site which is a big bonus. The owners are very hospitable and also they cook a mean breakfast. They are willing to advise you on what to visit and things to do in the city.
A very clean and comfortable B&B with charming hosts who went out of their way to be hospitable.
A very good breakfast. We were only there one night and the proprietor suggested a walking tour of York which was excellent and showed us a broad scope of the city and its long history. Highly recommended!
Walnut Creek, California
David and Carolyn were incredibly helpful! They told us about the free walking tour around the city which we would not have known about otherwise. They also recommended some lovely places to see and eat at! Very comfortable room, clean and well stocked. Amazing breakfast! Private parking next to the front door was a huge bonus! Walking distance to the city centre. Would definitely stay here again!
Beautiful accommodation, close to the station, breakfast is delicious.
Great place to stay in the centre of York, within easy walking distance of all of the city centre.
Only stayed one night in the twin room which was clean and comfortable, with en-suite bath and shower. Was able to get a gluten free breakfast which is a real bonus for coeliacs. Off-street parking was also a bonus as parking can be difficult in York. Would definitely stay again; Carolyn and David were really welcoming and helpful.
Close proximity to York attractions
Very welcoming, pleasant couple who own and run it. Clean and well organised in all areas. Very good choices for breakfasts. Just a few minutes walk away to start of York's famous attractions. We loved the friendly way it is run; so helpful, anxious to please and pleasant.
A very well done and a big thank you!

Just got back from staying here for two nights for a wedding! Wonderful place, great position close to everything. Rooms are all clean and well equipped with most things you will need; kettle, tea, coffee etc. TV and WiFi both worked really well! Breakfast was also very nice! Couldn’t ask for better! Thank you for a wonderful stay - everyone enjoyed the visit!
Overnight trip with friend
Had a great overnight stay in May. Owners very helpful when we had any queries and were professional and friendly. Our twin bedded room was quaint and characterful, in fact the whole property is lovely. We didn’t travel by car but there is parking for a number of cars, which has to be a bonus as looking for parking can take time. Property central to York even though in residential area. There is seating in the garden too which is nice for people to have the option. Only negative was front door key kept sticking but owners in so not a major issue.
This was our 17th year going to Crook Lodge and what a fantastic time we had again. Crook Lodge is in a great location, within just a 10 minute walk away from the Minster and the centre of York. Plenty to see and do, lots of good places to eat and drink and lots of good shopping as well as the big name stores. Carolyn and David give you a warm welcome and the rooms are clean and comfy. Always quiet at night so sleeping isn't a problem. Breakfast is very fine with a selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt and of course the full English. It has its own car park which is great as we park up and know the car is secure until our departure. We will be visiting Crook Lodge in December when St Nicholas Christmas Fayre is on and the Christmas markets. We always look forward to our breaks at Crook Lodge and hopefully we'll be going for a long time to come.
Weekend visit to York
A nice, convenient B&B to stay at in York. A 10 minute walk to/from York Station and also a few minutes walk into the town centre. Carolyn and David are a lovely couple and made us feel very welcome. David’s breakfasts were superb and our room was more than adequate for our short stay, which we considered value for money. Would recommend. Thank you both for a lovely stay.
We enjoyed our Crook Lodge stay in charming York. Carolyn and David were gracious, accommodating hosts. Our ground floor room allowed us to avoid all but the front steps, for which we were grateful. This is a great spot from which to easily explore the delightful city of York.
