About Us

"As part of a still-working convent in a historic building, this is one of Britain's more unusual guest-houses and a worthy contender for York's best-value accommodation." - The Telegraph

For a truly unique experience, enjoy a stay in England's oldest living convent.

We're proud to offer comfort, convenience, great value and a friendly service in our magnificent Grade I Listed building. The location of the Bar Convent is second to none: just around the corner from York Railway Station and a stone's throw from the city walls and all of York's restaurants, shops and attractions.

There are twenty guest bedrooms, with options to suit different budgets, and all bookings include our award-winning breakfast.

Within the building, you can also enjoy a visit to our café, serving some of the best scones and cakes in York, our beautiful private garden and conferencing facilities. Guests also receive discount entry to our exhibition, which tells the fascinating three-hundred-year story of the site.

Whether you're visiting York for business or pleasure, we promise an enjoyable stay with a welcome you'll want to return to.

Opening Times

Check-in for guests is from 3pm, except by prior arrangement. Check-out is by 10am on the day of departure and we are happy to store your luggage until 9.30pm.

Our café and garden are open to the public from Monday to Saturday between 8am and 3pm each day, with hot food served until 2.30pm.

The exhibition, chapel and gift Shop are all open Monday to Saturday, 10am until 5pm.

Please be aware that some parts of the Bar Convent (including the chapel) will occasionally be closed for private events. If you're making a special trip, please call ahead on 01904 643 238.
