About Us

The Principal York, located just steps from the historic York Railway Station, offers picturesque views of the York Minster and serves as the perfect base for exploring the city's splendour.

Opened in 1878, The Principal York is a stunning example of late-Victorian architecture, featuring sweeping central iron staircases, viewing galleries, and original high ceilings that showcase delicate craftsmanship, grandeur, and opulence. These historical features are seamlessly integrated with modern comforts, resulting in 155 elegant and inviting bedrooms and suites. Decorated in balanced, neutral tones, these accommodations provide more than just a place to sleep.

Relax in the tranquillity of the garden room, which offers views across private gardens to the stunning York Minster. Or enjoy a unique dining experience at The Refectory Kitchen & Terrace, which serves fresh, seasonal local produce. The hotel is also home to the Chapter House bar, where you can enjoy cocktails, craft ales, and snacks in a sophisticated setting.
