Principal York, just steps from the train station, is the perfect base from which to discover the historic city of York.
Award-winning interior architects Goddard Littlefair have refurbished and restored the hotel, blending the grandeur of late-Victorian architecture with the comforts of modern travel to create 155 elegant, comfortable bedrooms and suites in balanced, neutral tones that offer more than a place to sleep.
Celebrating the history and pedigree of this grande-dame, railway station hotel, bedrooms and suites at Principal York 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.
At Principal York, we use some of the finest ingredients Yorkshire has to offer. The Refectory Kitchen & Terrace serves classic British dishes, while Chapter House Bar is the perfect place to try some local craft beers and expertly made cocktails.
The Principal York boasts one of the largest event centres in Yorkshire and the north-east, with 10 meeting and private dining rooms with capacities that range from six people to as many as 400 in the event centre.
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.
