What an amazing place this gem of a find is. Thank you to Mark, Melanie and all the staff for a truly memorable 50th birthday for my husband. The Carlton was spacious, spotlessly clean and had all the amenities you could want in your accommodation. The b&b is within walking distance of York centre and breakfast was lovely. Would recommend...

We decided to stay in Carlton House for 2 nights in order to attend a wedding. There is free parking available which was a huge bonus as many others who stayed at premier inns were paying up to £24 a day! Although you may be double parked to make best use of the space the owners were happy to take...

We spent last weekend with 2 other couples at Carlton House while celebrating my wife's 40th and had another thoroughly enjoyable stay. Our room 9 was just perfect, exceptionally clean as always and the owners Mark & Mel even had a bottle of Prosecco on ice for our arrival. Breakfasts here take some beating, their full English is a delight,...

We normally stay in hotels but opted for Carlton House because of it's excellent reviews and we were not disappointed.Centrally located so only 10 minutes walk to all the attractions and more restaurants and bars than you could shake a stick at. The room (8) was large,tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and well presented. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice...

Just returned from our 6 monthly fix of Carlton House. Once again the service was excellent, the breakfasts were absolutely delicious (especially the bacon & sausages) and our requested attic room (16 on the 3rd floor) was spotlessly clean. You are made to feel so welcome in this family run B&B where comfort and hospitality is paramount to the owners...

Carlton House is a beautiful B&B conveniently situated a 10 minute walk from York centre. We experienced a warm welcome, free parking and early access to our room - nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and spacious and the breakfast was superb offering traditional cooked food along with cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurt. Would we stay here...

Typical Georgian house with access up steps. Groundfloor had nice residents lounge and well lit breakfast room downstairs with window to front. Front road is wide and at times busy but not noticeable within - a upmarket merchants area leading to the city - about 10 mins walk away to the city gate. Bedroom well appointed complete with bottle of...

We had an excellent time at Carlton house. Owner was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was superb (sadly no black pudding tho). We had a top floor room and it was very quiet. Good off road parking as well.
