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.
Celebrating the history and pedigree of this grande-dame, railway station hotel, bedrooms and suites are a comfortably mix tradition and modernity. The majority of the rooms are in the main house, and the grandest of them look out across the gardens to York Minster in the distance. All bedrooms are thoughtfully furnished with simple detailing and rich materials such as oak and brass to create a relaxing environment.
At the Refectory Kitchen & Terrace, the best ingredients from York and the surrounding countryside are celebrated to produce traditional British classics. Just next to York Station, guests can choose to dine in the modern, light-flooded dining room or on the outdoor terrace. The Chapter House serves wines, craft beers and classic cocktails, along with a bar menu that highlights local produce.
The 11 meeting rooms available at the hotel offer a flexible configuration; all combined, The Principal York hotel can hold meeting for up to 410 attendees. With its stunning Victorian architecture, manicured lawns, and views out to the York Minster, The Principal York makes also the perfect setting for your wedding day.
A gym, heated swimming pool and sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi are open every day for use by hotel guests as well as to members.
