We have a new selection of Red, White and Rose wines and spirits on offer and plenty of soft drinks too!! (J20, Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Tango etc. Between the hours of 11am until 7pm we are introducing a daytime snack menu, which will offer lite bites to the hungry traveller.
During the summer months we have started to include tap filtered bottled water in the bedrooms and for the light sleepers complimentary earplugs can be requested from reception.
From the 30 September 2013, Sky Sports will be available in The York Priory Bar, Yey !!!!! This will be a nice surprise for our sport orientated customers, who would prefer to just sit and chill instead of the sightseeing and shopping that York is famous for. Lee our bar and entertainment manager, will be looking forward to entertaining you there, being a local lad (and a loyal York City fan) he will enjoy exchanging football banter and yarns.
Also from 30 September 2013, ALL Superior Bedrooms will have the full sky home package including movies (excluding Sky Sports). This tv package will also be available in Room 201 adjoining family room, in the main bedroom only. The rest of the bedrooms will still have the standard freeview package.

We are going to have a guest and family party on the 31 Dec 13, to see in new 2014!! All our guest that book for these dates are welcome to join us celebrating the end of 2013 and start of 2014.

We continue to listen to feedback and make improvements wherever we can.
Many thanks to family and friends for your continued support in loving my business.
York is a reknowned Hot Spot for a great night out. It is very rich in vibrant cafe bars, bars pubs, restaurants, live music venues and night clubs.
Just about every Saturday there is always something on
My most favourite free music venue to go is The Roman Bath A pub right in the heart of the city at St Sampsons Square. Live entertainment is on most days 9pm – 11.30pm. On the 1st day of every month there is a black board with a list of bands playing over the next month. The venue has several rooms and a beer garden in which you can smoke. Be warned if the band is popular then the venue can get very very crowded. I can recommend 3 bands I have watched recently.
The Black Pearls
The Dark Flowers
2 other Free music venues in the area are The Golden Lion and The Old White Swan Goodramgate
At the end of the evening I usually head towards Plonkers Wine bar. This is a fabulous wine bar situated opposite the Grand Opera House on Cumberland Street. Plonkers is open until 2am and from 11pm-2am a DJ plays music.
When the evening has finished Plonkers is situated right next door to Streamline taxis ideal transport to your next destination
The city centre was packed with christmas shoppers even I ventured out to absorb the atmosphere. The festival of angels is a great event created by the city of yorks traders as a thank you to the York citizens
