Score from 399 reviews Very good
Very close to the train station. Very close to the city. Very helpful friendly staff.
not a thing.
Good location, owner is great- very helpful, home is clean
The mattress was the worst we have slept on- soft beyond belief! It needs to be thrown out and replaced!
I chose it because it was within close walking distance of where I was spending the day and evening. Darren was very helpful with insuring car parking which can otherwise be a problem in York.
Everything. Guest hse, people, York city, shops, pubs, and the Minster too. An absolutely delight.
Walking around for 7- 8 hours a day
Dark going up stairs.wifi poor.nowhere to relax.only had your room to go to.which wasn't the biggest.very nice room though
Very welcoming & very clean. The room was very comfortable & great location. I would recommend this B&B to friends and will stay again on our next visit.
Darren the owner met us at the door and couldn't haven't been more welcoming. The room was very comfortable with quality beds and shower. Very clean. I requested the heating turned on and it was done without hesitation.
Yorks hospitality at its best. Darryn was the perfect host.
immaculate condition, very good breakfast, well situated, helpful owner.
Staff were brilliant breakfast was awesome
The location is literally 2 blocks (5 minute walk) from the heart of the city, and you cross through a beautiful garden with a soaring ruined abbey to get there! Darren was a great host with excellent suggestions on how best to enjoy his city. His breakfast was the best we had in a week of B&B's.
The location is very good. 10mins walking from the railway station...next the Yorkshire Museum Gardens, the garden is lovely...kindly Darren...delicious breakfast ...wonderful York...highly recommend!
Darren, our host was very pleasant and friendly. He was very relaxed at all times. The beds were very comfortable. The en-suite bathroom was spacious, very clean and had a spacious shower The towels were good quality..
The room was a little smaller than expected and was rather too warm in the hot weather. Being "older" I would have liked a stool in the bathroom so that I could have sat down to dry my feet after showering. The pedal bin was too flimsy and difficult to open.
Darren is an excellent host with great knowledge of the area and cooks a lovely breakfast. Location is really good with walks through the park or along the riverside to get to the town centre only 5_10 mins. Will definately be going back.
Proprietor was very helpful. Location ideal.
Darren's helpfulness & cleanliness of the accommodation.
Excellent services for the staff! Just spend 1 day here, should spend more days for it. Great english breakfast! Overall is good.
Quite far from down town unless you know the short cut.
Location okay, breakfast good
Very clinical rooms, clean but no character.
Friendly, clean, lovely suggestions of York attractions, really improved our stay
Owner was very helpful and friendly! Had great suggestions on where to eat and where to go as well as directions!
Darren was a brilliant host and could not do enough for you. The comfort and relaxed manner you felt in Alcuin Lodge, felt like home from home. Everything was perfect and more.
What was there not to like? Maybe the colour of one of the paintings in the bedroom (a tiny spot of green in the left hand corner)
Excellent. Very close (10 mins walk) to City centre and all the attractions and sights. Darren was an excellent host, very friendly, welcoming and informative with a great local knowledge. He gave us a lot of very useful information including good places to eat and see. The accommodation was spotless and quiet. Also great breakfasts. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in York.
Could not fault, it was all good!
Darren was extremely helpful in giving us ideas of how to enjoy York the short time we were able to be there. We arrived by train and it was very easy to walk to his place without having to use a busy road.
