Alcuin lodge is a nice bed and breakfast just minutes from York's attractions. The remodeled rooms are well-kept and stocked and the host is most engaging and helpful. There is also parking available which is a plus. Definitely recommend.

We stayed in Room 5 at Alcuin Lodge for two nights early August. It was truly a perfect stay! The location is just perfect for walking into the city center but still maintaining calm and quiet in the evenings! The room itself was perfect-exceptionally clean with lovely amenities. We were a little nervous about the bathroom being located outside the...
