5 Decadent Spots for a Hotel Suite in York

Places for a Decadent Hotel Suite York – There are few cities more beautiful than York with its magnificent Gothic cathedral, Roman remains and Medieval architecture.  The city centre is compact and easy to walk around to visit all the tourist attractions.  York has some fabulous bars and restaurants and makes a perfect spot for a weekend away.

Have a look at our suggestions for a great hotel suite in York.


The Principal, York

Station Rd, York YO24 1AA

The Principal York (formerly known as The Royal York Hotel) is an historic Grade II listing building.  Built in 1878 and the North Eastern Railway Company’s flagship luxury hotel.  It is right next to the York Train Station.  The hotel is beautifully decorated throughout in soft shades of grey.


“Our Minster View Suites are the best rooms in the house with listed interior details and an authentic Victorian feel. The suites are spacious and designed to give you the luxury you deserve with magnificent views of the York Minster and hotel gardens.”

Free WiFi is available through the hotel, and the leisure club includes a sauna, steam room and heated indoor pool. Try the Twilight Afternoon tea that is served in the Garden Room (one of my favourite places in York).  In the summer, Sol Ast takes up residence in the Principal’s gardens, a lovely way to spend a balmy evening after a relaxing spa day.
