“Lovely place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2011

I actually won a two day break to stay here and would be more than happy to pay for the pleasure in future. Really warm and well run place. The owners are fun and very organised and seem to go the extra mile to ensure their guests are happy, providing up to date information and advice. Breakfasts were pretty good with 'entertainment' provided by mine host. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel in Helmsley go elsewhere and I bet you won't receive better service. If you are happy to stay in a '6 star' lovely guest house then you can't go wrong here.

Room Tip: Only tried the one room but am sure they are all of similar high quality.

We stayed here recently just for one night and chose it by chance.It was a lucky find. Our previous night we had stayed in a hotel and it certainly didn't stand a chance against Carlton Lodge.

This is a beautiful old house impeccably maintained with lots of period features. The decoration is sympathetic to the era of the house with all the modern comforts you might need. The room was lovely with T.V. and DVD. We were able to borrow a DVD from the hosts to watch in our room. The room also had a lot of nice little extras to make your stay more comfortable. We found it quiet and warm. We are bikers and often find accommodation can be cold when we book in but this room was cosy and welcoming. Breakfast was gorgeous and Margaret and Chris go to a lot of trouble sourcing local products. Nice to support your local producers.
It is only a few minutes walk to pubs and restaurants, all on the flat with foot path the whole way. They also have Wifi which is FREE. This is a really nice place to stay after a day on the moors and we highly recommend it.

We have stayed at The Carlton Lodge now many times and have never been disappointed. Chris and Margaret Parkin are perfect hosts. They have had a number of years experience in the hospitality industry and it shows in their attention to detail. The rooms at Carlton Lodge are spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Breakfast is first class with most of the ingredients sourced locally and cooked to perfection. When staying in this part of Yorkshire I would certainly say this is the place to stay with plenty of restaurants nearby for an evening meal.

We were welcomed by the owner who carried our luggage to our room. The room itself was equipped with everything you would expect in a good hotel but with the nice added touch of free bottled water. Although evening meals are not served there are several places to eat within ten minutes walking distance. The English breakfasts were first class and came with fresh orange juice and proper portions of butter, not the usual wrapped variety. This is an excellent base to explore the lovely countryside and attractions.We thouroughly enjoyed our two night stay and hope to come again.
