Galtres Lodge is an independently owned hotel in the very centre of York. Small yet perfectly formed, these two Georgian townhouses have been combined to make this charming 13-bedroom hotel and restaurant. Step out of the doors onto the busy shopping street of Low Petergate, and turn the corner to see the magnificent York Minster, situated immediately behind the hotel. The neighbouring area include some unique boutiques in characterful buildings, specialist stores, and some of the best luxury brands in the UK. There are also numerous bars and eateries, though you will also want to try the excellent restaurant at Galtres Lodge. “The Shambles”, York’s oldest and most famous street, is just a few steps away, A popular place for visitors and tourists, this narrow, cobbled pathway is lined with beautiful Elizabethan buildings and was the inspiration for Diagon Alley in Harry Potter. Galtres Lodge has been privately owned for many years, meaning that personal service and attention to detail are second to none. The hotel has recently been bought by new owners, and there are exciting plans afoot to make the hotel and restaurant even better.
