York Hotel Accommodation


York is a stunning medieval city with a history that goes back to to before Roman times. It is a fascinating cathedral city in the heart of Yorkshire with some of the best preserved historical buildings and structures in Europe.

York offers a wide range of accommodation to suit most tastes, and some of these are listed below: 

  • York Backpackers (, 88-90 Micklegate, tel 627720. Located within a few minutes walk of the railway station, with all the facilities you would expect of a great hostel.... The opportunity to stay in a superb Georgian mansion (1752) with a stone-flagged entrance hall, grand sweeping staircase, original panelled rooms, vaulted cellars and a fabulous rococo ceiling featuring Shakespeare'?s head. A variety of rooms and dorms. The private, candlelit basement bar is 400 years old and features great value bar meals, Happy Hour, and really late closing! Cafe open daily for the sort of breakfast that keeps you going all day!

  • The Grange Hotel ( a few minutes walk from Bootham Bar, this is one of York's premier (and most expensive) hotels. A Georgian town house, it's gone for the country-house-chic look - all deep sofas, open fires and unobtrusive service. There are three restaurants ranging from a seafood bar, through contemporary cellar bar to the full-on French silver service. Not cheap, but deeply luxurious, and a real change from the standard pre-packaged international chain hotels.

  • The Dean Court Hotel - they don't come much more central than this - it's right outside the front door of the Minster, and the city centre is just streets away. An imposing Victorian pile, this Best Western hotel has recently been renovated downstairs, and now sports a contemporary 'wine bar' look that's in complete contrast to the red-brick exterior. Unfortunately the refit didn't make it past the ground floor, and the bedrooms are beginning to look somewhat tired. Food is over-the-top nouvelle cuisine style, and they've got prices to match the location. Great if you're looking for something at the heart of the city, but not particularly good value given the standard of accommodation at the moment.

  • The Monk Bar Hotel - just outside Monk Bar, on the inner ring road. Perfectly adequate unspectacular Best Western-style hotel, but beware the bedrooms at the front - they overlook the inner ring road which is exceedingly noisy during the morning and evening rush hours. Not particularly good value for money, as the accommodation is unspectacular and food could best be described as adequate.

  • Queen Anne's Guest House - approx., 7 minutes walk from Bootham Bar (near the Minster), this is a small friendly guest house we were very impressed with, a simple Full English Breakfast awaits you in the morning, after a refreshing sleep in one of the clean, quiet rooms with en suite. Good value for money, the key to the front door issued on arrival ensures you do not have to tote bags around all day.
