In a city that has been home to Romans, Vikings and Saxons – not to mention the more recent Georgian upper classes – you’re going to want to stay somewhere historic on your visit to York, and Marmadukes is just the ticket.
Slightly outside the city’s medieval walls, the hotel is set in a pair of old Victorian townhouses. The décor perfectly fits the setting, with beautiful antiques and period furnishings running all the way from the lobby to the rooms. Service is friendly, with staff that will go above and beyond to ensure you have a good stay.
A great breakfast is included in most room rates (check detail below). When the hunger pangs arise again, the hotel's fine dining restaurant comes highly recommended, run by Michelin-starred chef Adam Jackson. There is also a bar – perfect for that pre-dinner cocktail.
As with many hotels in York, some of the hotel’s 21 rooms can come up a bit small, so opt for an upgrade if you're after more space. We’d particularly recommend the Loft Suite as it comes with its own barrel sauna – talk about lavish.
You're well-placed for exploring here; the hotel is just a 10-minute walk from the historical centre. The York Minster is a definite must-see, as is York Castle, which is a 20 minute stroll away.
No pets are allowed.
