Room 14 very cramped and cold with condensation from the velux window dripping onto the bed, also the underside of the toilet pan wasn't very clean. The award winning breakfast was very good on the first days stay, but the subsequent breakfast was not up to standard. Would not recommend this hotel to friends or work colleagues.

We highly recommend this for...

We stayed 5 nights in one of the top floor rooms which was small but very cosy. The food is of an excellent standard. We had breakfast every morning and 3 lunches and enjoyed every one. The staff were friendly and helpful and let us entertain friends in the Lounge area. Would recommend the location as it is near the...

This had quite a worn out kind of feel to the place. I was sent up to the Attic (room 14) where it was very cramped and cold. There was nowhere to put the suitcase down. There was no table. The wi-fi didn't work. All the water pipes (and tank filling up) were very noisy. Only plus was the location...

This place is OKAY and there are no major complaints about anything in particular, it's just that I can't really see how it can be called a hotel, it's more like a Guest House or B&B. The 'hotel' is essentially rooms above a brasserie, owned by the same people. In fact entrance to the rooms is through the brasserie door....

Stayed at the Galtres Lodge for 3 nights on their short break deal. Very comfortable and friendly hotel. Happy and efficient staff and excellent food. The location drove us to this hotel, it is right in the heart of the old city a stones throw from all the shops and the cathedral. Breakfast is waitress service so not crispy overcooked...

Spent two nights at The Galtres this weekend, excellent location but the so called 'superior' double room (no:2) we were allocated fell far short of that title! The bed was reasonably comfortable, however, the duvet was far too small, also we did not expect to have to make our own bed! Chill winds blew in through the old ill fitting...

We know York well having lived just a couple of hundred yards from Galtres Lodge in the city centre. It may not be a full service traditional hotel but that is part of it's charm. It is a perfectly located restaurant with excellent rooms and a keen and enthusiastic team. Our en-suite double room on the second floor was great...

From here, it is possible to enjoy the historic Shambles, the many eateries of Fossgate and, furthermore, York’s National Trust properties, whilst of course stopping off for afternoon tea en route.
