When do you want to stay?

Placed about 8 minutes walk strait down the road from York city walls and its Royal entrance called Micklegate Bar. The Victorian period building in which you can stay has a number of classic features for you to enjoy within it. Keeping the place in character means you get a real feel of what the city is made of.

Our location close to the city walls puts you within walking distance of the major attractions in this cathedral city. As you walk into town through Micklegate Bar remind yourself that this is the gate the Queen uses when she comes here as well.

All of our rooms have ensuite facilities for your privacy. The are also equipped to modern standards. So you get the best of the old and the best of the new when you stay with us.

The character of the building strikes you immediately you see it. It continues to shine through as you walk through the front door. The high Victorian ceilings give you an immediate feeling of space and elegance. The lush furnishings and splendid wooden staircase let you know you are staying in a historic city with charm.

We have a splendid restaurant in house that serves you up a great meal each morning and evening if you so choose. There is also a hotel bar here for you to enjoy a night cap with your loved ones and unwind after a day out in the city.

Ancient and modern, medieval and mystical, our city founded by the Romans nearly 2000 years ago is steeped in history and waiting for you to discover its delights.

York Minster - the largest Gothic Cathedral in Northern Europe and the Jorvik Viking Centre are the most visited sites in York. Warriors, craftsmen and traders who made their mark on this fine city. Marvellous museums paying tribute to Art, Brewery, Rail, Richard III, Castle and Dungeon are all top priority. For Theatre goers - Theatre Royal and the Grand Opera House are two of the favourites.

View the city from a different vantage point by taking a boat trip down the river, sun yourself on the sun decks, enjoy the English summer and sip something cool whilst taking in all the sights.

Leisurely lunches, coffees and people watching whilst you relax and then perhaps head for some serious shopping along Coney, Parliament and Spurriergate. Browse around the ancient streets where the ladies of the night once frequented - Grape Street - now home to exclusive shops and restaurants, Petergate and Goodramgate - home to the oldest row of houses dating back to the 14th century.

Take a tour around the city walls, part-take in a ghost hunt and perhaps visit the psychic museum on Stonegate for some insightful and interesting Revelations.
