The Principal York is a beautifully restored and magnificent grade-II-listed hotel just outside the Roman walls that enclose the heart of one of the country’s most historic cities. The hotel has been sensitively restored by Goddard Littlefair to create a hotel that combines historic architectural detail with all the comforts of the modern day.

Originally The Station Hotel, The Principal York opened on its current site in 1878 and features an impressive Italianate façade of Scarborough brick and Tadcaster stone. Situated adjacent to York station, The Principal York can be accessed straight from the platform as well as by a short driveway to the front of the building. The hotel, once a stopover for Queen Victoria en route to Balmoral Castle, can now be reached in less than two hours by train from London’s King’s Cross Station.

The hotel comprises of a beautiful lobby lounge; reception; several meeting and event spaces as well as a gym and indoor pool. In addition to all of this there is the Garden Room where you can enjoy traditional British afternoon tea whilst looking out across manicured lawns to York Minster; the Chapter House Bar serving local craft beers, spirits and cocktails; and The Refectory Kitchen & Terrace Restaurant where the menu changes weekly as the chefs design new and exciting dishes that reflect local and seasonal produce.

The hotel features 159 bedrooms and suites and the winner will be staying in a 20 – 21 sqm. fully refurbished Superior room designed to offer comfort and luxury with intuitive technology and modern design values. The hotel also offers free, superfast Wi-Fi with a maximum bandwidth of 100MB throughout.

The prize includes bed and breakfast each day plus one three-course evening meal for two and one Afternoon Tea for two that is valid for the winner and their guest. The dinner includes three courses from the Kitchen Menu in the Refectory Kitchen & Terrace Restaurant.

Principal is a collection of city-centre hotels based in landmark buildings in exceptional locations across the United Kingdom.
