Best hotels in York from 5-star luxury to bargain digs

Best hotels in York from 5-star luxury to bargain digs

A medieval walled city, packed with genuinely unique sights within a compact area – it’s no wonder York is one of the UK’s most popular city breaks.

Most of the hotels on our list are in the heart of the city centre, and even those further afield are an easy and enjoyable walk into town. Historic properties abound here, with accommodation for travelling judges’, centuries-old mansions, and elegant townhouses just some of the options available.

The best hotels in York are:

Grays Court

(Grays Court)

Neighbourhood: City Centre

The oldest continuously inhabited house in England, dating back to 1091, this tranquil boutique hotel is a few steps from York Minster, right in the heart of the city. Grays Court somehow manages to combine opulent, expensive decor with a homely atmosphere. Silk wallpapers, reproduction Louis XIV furnishings and crystal chandeliers wouldn’t naturally make you think “child and dog-friendly”, yet both are welcome. As you flop on your four-poster or pad along the medieval hallways, you’re unlikely to encounter staff – this isn’t a five-star hotel, even if it looks like one – which leaves you free to poke around the various nooks, crannies and lounge areas of this Grade I-listed building. Add to this the peerless views of the Minster, a beautifully manicured garden, and the only private access to York’s city walls, and you may not want to leave.
