Our luxury, 4 star hotel offers everything you’ll need for the perfect stay in the beautiful city of York, whether visiting for business or pleasure. We’re only a few minutes’ walk from York’s historic city centre, offering the perfect base to explore what has been voted ‘best and most beautiful UK City’, as well as the ‘safest city in the world’.
Our boutique style hotel, is a Grade II listed building in the affluent ‘Bootham’ part of York, built in 1830. On entering, the original sweeping staircase with cast iron balustrade welcomes guests, the interior dotted with period antiques and luxurious Regency style décor throughout. A significant refurbishment in 2016 has enhanced the appeal further with the addition of lifts to all floors, premier ground floor rooms and the development of the historic cellars into ‘The Ivy Brasserie’, our stunning 2 Rosette restaurant.
A warm welcome to York, for four legged friends
We understand that your four-legged best friend is just as important and may wish to accompany you to your hotel in York. We make well-behaved dogs very welcome – always with advanced notice please. In consideration of other guests, the only dining area in which dogs are permitted is The Dante Room on the ground floor.
A charge of £20 is added per stay, which includes a bed, bowl and a homemade “Pooch’s” treat bag.
When it’s time for walkies, nearby Museum Gardens welcomes dogs on a lead or a walk along the river is always a hit.
