The historic Principal York hotel is adjacent to the train station and enjoys views across its private gardens to stunning York Minster. Originally opened in 1878, the hotel’s impressive heritage is immediately apparent from the yellow Scarborough brick and impressive Tadcaster stone dressing.
A multi-million pound investment in 2015 has restored the hotel to its original splendour: luxuriously appointed bedrooms and bathrooms radiate from the splendid, sweeping main staircase; elegant, high-ceilinged public spaces and banqueting rooms sit alongside the stunning Garden Room, which is perfect for tea and coffee - or a glass of Champagne. In addition, a fantastic restaurant – The Refectory Kitchen & Terrace – opened in November 2015, serving fresh, seasonal, local produce. The Refectory is perfect for a Race Day Brunch and serves delicious Sunday Roasts; whilst next door to the restaurant is Chapter House bar, serving cocktails, craft ales and snacks.
Every element of the bedrooms and bathrooms has been enhanced during the renovation, from new bed linen to bathroom amenities to upgraded, superfast, free Wi-Fi. Respectful of its past but focused on the well-being of the modern, The Principal York combines the best of old and new with a genuinely warm welcome and authentic sense of place.
