Award-winning interior architects Goddard Littlefair have refurbished and restored the hotel, blending the grandeur of late-Victorian architecture with the comforts of modern travel to create 155 elegant, comfortable bedrooms and suites in balanced, neutral tones that offer more than a place to sleep.
Celebrating the history and pedigree of this grande-dame, railway station hotel, bedrooms and suites at Principal York comfortably mix tradition and modernity. The majority of the rooms are in the main house, and the grandest of them look out across the gardens to York Minster in the distance.
The Refectory Kitchen & Terrace serves classic British dishes, while Chapter House Bar is the perfect place to try some local craft beers and expertly made cocktails. We also offer an in-room dining menu that can be delivered direct to your room any time, day or night.
