Information about The Principal York Hotel

The Principal York, steps from the train station, is the perfect base from which to discover the historic city of York. Blending the grandeur of late-Victorian architecture with the comforts of modern travel, Principal York offers its guests the warmest welcome this side of the Pennines. Award-winning interior architects Goddard Littlefair have refurbished and restored the hotel’s rooms and public spaces to create 155 elegant, comfortable bedrooms and suites in balanced, neutral tones that offer more than just a place to sleep. Free, superfast Wi-Fi with a maximum bandwidth of 100Mb is available throughout the hotel and if you decide to visit us by car, the hotel provides a car park for guests’ use at a charge of £15 for 24 hours.

Chapter House is an award winning bar and was part of the multi- million-pound investment in The Principal York hotel. The main bar and next-door snug are warm, welcoming and comfortable- whether you are a local looking for something a bit different, travelling to and from York by train, or a guest staying in the hotel. Chapter House serves cocktails and local craft ales, wines and spirits and bar bites, all served by our friendly team of bartenders.At the Refectory Kitchen and Terrace, we celebrate the best ingredients from York and the surrounding countryside to produce traditional British classics. Choose from dishes such as Short rib mac and Swaledale cheese and R and J Butchers venison haunch with parsnip and honey glazed beetroot, followed by Yorkshire Parkin, a deliciously sticky ginger cake served with Yorkshire beer glaze and custard and a Dark chocolate cheesecake with pistachio crumb and steeped blackberries.
