What used to be the headquarters of the North Eastern Railway Company is now Yorkshire’s one and only five-star hotel. And not for no reason. This magnificent Edwardian building has a total of 107 rooms, each an en-suite bathroom, and some with views of York Minster. You’ll also find a gym, pool and spa in the basement vaults and as far as sustenance goes, its cocktail bar, whisky lounge, and restaurant – the three AA Rosette Hudson’s – are a hit with guests and locals alike.
York is one of the most popular getaway destinations in the North – so no wonder you’re looking for a hotel here. With its much-loved collection of museums and historical sights, including Britain’s largest Gothic Cathedral, York Minster, and the Jorvik Viking Centre, as well as its beautiful, atmospheric old town, York is understandably one of the UK’s most popular city breaks. And when it comes to places to stay, it also has some spectacular offerings, from remarkable Victorian behemoths to 900-year-old boutique hotels and even a cosy convent. Here’s our list of the very best hotels in York.
