Wonderful hospitality
our stay at this guest house was wonderful. Excellent staff and comfort. The area around it is not as nice as it once was, but the owners have no control over that. I highly recommend it.

Excellent location and Lodge
York Lodge was excellent in every aspect, from the friendly helpful staff its central location with access to the City and local attractions and activities. The staff went above and beyond to help with any of our needs, they helped us to hire an exceptional driver and gave advice on local amenities and places to visit. The Lodge was kept to a high standard and was very clean and comfortable. Would recommend York Lodge to any visitor whether on vacation or on business.

Fantastic York Lodge!
I absolutely loved my stay at York Lodge and wished I could have stayed longer to enjoy it. From the moment I arrived, I felt at peace. The grounds are very calming with lush grounds and a water fountain. The staff is very pleasant and welcoming, and always available to get what I needed (which included a homemade quiche!). The rooms are very well constructed and comfortable. I would definitely stay at York Lodge again. The only downside is that taxi drivers don't know where it is, which is more of an indictment of the taxi drivers than the hotel.
