This is the perfect jumping off point for visiting old York City centre. Leave your car in the hotel’s access controlled private car park and its only a five minute walk to York Minster and onto Shambles in the city centre. The hotel has plenty of history itself, built as a private mansion, commandeered to be an army HQ -hence the Winston Churchill connection and finally becoming a splendid hotel. It has AA rosettes for culinary excellence and we thoroughly enjoyed dinners and breakfasts. The aptly named luxury room was very comfortable, quiet and had a modern en suite bathroom. We loved it and will be back.
