Some frequently asked questions below. If you’re still unsure, then just give us a ring or drop us an email.

  • What are check in and check out times?

    You’re welcome to check in from 3pm – if you arrive in the city earlier and need us to store some luggage we’re happy to oblige. Check out time is 11am.

  • Is the hotel dog-friendly?

    We have 1 dog-friendly accessible room and provide a cosy bed for your four legged friend to sleep on. Whilst we do not permit dogs into our restaurant or other public areas they are very welcome in our sun lounge area as well as our outdoor dining area. 

    Unfortunately, our dog rooms are currently out of service. If you would like to bring your dog to York, why not visit our sister property, The Judges Lodging? 

    Dogs are not permitted in our cottage rooms.

    To book a dog-friendly room please call us on 01904 611570.

  • Is there a car park?

    Yes – unusually for such a central city location – we are blessed with an onsite car park. Access is via a barrier and you will need an exit code from reception. Charges are £12.50 per night. Spaces are limited and cannot be reserved but we have several local car parks just a few minutes’ walk away should the rare occasion arise that we are full. Use the postcode YO1 6DU.

    Why not book direct with us? Not only do we guarantee you the best rate, you will also get free parking for the length of your stay. Free parking is only available to guests booking direct and is subject to availability.

    We have family rooms that can take up to 2 adults and 3 children. The Sir Joseph Terry cottages can accommodate up to 6 people and are ideal for larger family groups. We offer high chairs, children’s menus and cots/ extra beds too.

  • Do you cater for special diets?

    Yes – we have a team of talented in house chefs and if you let us know – ideally in advance for more unusual requests – we’ll do all we can to ensure you can enjoy a great meal with us. Vegetarian and dishes made with non-gluten containing ingredients appear on our main menu as the norm.
