One thing many travellers will say is that they don’t care about where they stay on their holiday as long as it has a clean bed and a shower. Which we totally understand, after all, we all travel for different reasons.

But on top of amazing attractions, York can offer accommodation you never knew you wanted, but now won’t be able to forget about. Take a look at some of the hotels and spas in York you won’t want to leave.

Grays Court


The only hotel in York with a direct access to the Medieval Walls and over 1000 years of history - Grays Court is a stunning place to enjoy your city break. The hotel’s rooms are named after the previous famous inhabitants of the house and are decorated with antique furniture not without a modern twist. Beautiful views of the iconic York Minster and even a copper bath to relax in – everything at Grays Court says you won’t be rushing home.

The Grand, York Hotel & Spa


It’s the only 5-star hotel in Yorkshire – what else do we need to say? From the moment a porter opens a door for you to enter the former Victorian headquarters of the North Eastern Railway, to the time you indulge into one of the range of available spa treatments, you won’t want to leave. And then when you try the delicious Yorkshire tapas at The Rise Restaurant, you’ll know that a stay at The Grand, York Hotel & Spa is an experience on its own and you won’t regret a penny.

The Principal York


Just a step away from the York train station, you will find yourself at the place where old meets new, where sand-coloured Scarborough brick and historically high ceilings combine with modern decorated bedrooms and high-tech amenities. Balance is what we love about this hotel, and whether you are travelling for leisure or business, The Principal York will easily make you feel at home.

Middlethorpe Hall & Spa

For those who like to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, Middlethorpe Hall will prove a wise choice. The Hall is surrounded by the beautiful gardens and an 18th century courtyard and offers a relaxing and luxurious stay for all of its guests. And did we mention it is pet friendly? Delicious breakfast, comfortable quiet rooms and green gardens to enjoy a walk with your four-legged best friend. Honestly, are you still thinking?
