The title says it all, ANOTHER stay at the Carlton Lodge.
It’s not often we ‘go back’ to the same digs, but the Carlton Lodge is one exception. It is an ideal base for those holidaying in and around Helmsley. The rooms are exceptionally comfortable, and I thoroughly recommend forking out that little bit extra for their ‘Superior’ Rooms (unlike a previous contributor!)
The place is (deservedly) rated as four star silver; there is plenty of on-site (free) parking, free wi-fi, superb facilities (the en-suites have shower, not bath – but don’t let this put you off), there is a residents’ lounge, although the rooms we have stayed in are so large we didn't need it, a well-stocked welcome tray.
The breakfasts are renowned, and it’s no surprise, a more than adequate cereal/ fruit etc bar, followed by a cooked breakfast to die for….do not miss the ‘Full English’, locally sourced produce cooked to perfection!!! And served with smooth and calming efficiency by mine (mein?)-host, Chris. No doubt, in the background, mine-hostess Margaret is paddling away furiously beneath the calm!!
The location is just a few hundred yards from Helmsley Market Square – so if you want an evening meal, you don’t even have to take the car.
Remember, it is no longer a hotel, which means that it doesn’t have a bar, or a restaurant, but it truly is one of the best ‘B & B’s’ in which we have stayed! And the pubs and restaurants are but a few minute’s walk away!!
