Most Popular Areas in York for 5-Star Hotels

Between York's half-timbered Medieval townhouses and fire-crackling pubs, you can find a smattering of 5-star hotels that ooze English charm, style and opulence. Many occupy the old brick mansions on the western side of the historic centre of York, gilding Coney Street and the leafy River Ouse with their antique facades. Others occupy centuries-old buildings in the shadow of the mighty York Minster, replete with 4-poster beds and soothing garden bowers. Others dot the rolling moors of North Yorkshire. They are further from town but steeped in country character and rustic vibes.

Top 5-Star Hotels in York

The beautiful façade and Neo-Classical adornments of the Grand Hotel & Spa on the western side of York carry on within. The interiors are packed with bespoke furnishings, while rooms come with sprawling en suites with freestanding Victorian baths. The Principal York flaunts elegant rooms with soothing colour schemes and a fusion of classical and contemporary styles, not to mention an indoor pool to boot. And then there's Judges Lodgings York, sat on the edge of the old centre with its British fine-dining and cosy countryside charm.

Where to Find the Best Restaurants in York

Head to the hodgepodge of crowded lanes that is the York Shambles and you're bound to discover everything from Italian trattorias to refined French brasseries between the more casual gastropubs and teahouses. The new side of the city – home to many York 5 star hotels – across the River Ouse also comes packed with plenty of top-rated restaurants. You can settle in for hearty English fine-dining there, all crafted from locally sourced ingredients. There are also some snazzy steakhouses and modish cocktail bars lining the Ouse itself.

The Most Popular Things to do in York

A visit to York is all about unravelling the rich Medieval past of Northern England. Start with a trip to the towers of the great York Minster to see a menagerie of gorgeous Gothic art and architecture. Then move to the old town of York, being sure to organise private tours of the cobbled streets and the Harry Potter-esque Shambles – some parts of that date back to Roman times. And when you're done with heritage and history, there's always an opportunity to leave behind those York 5 star hotels and drift down the leafy River Ouse on your very own boat.

Best Ways to Get Around York

Many luxury hotels in York sit close to the tight-knit old city where overhanging Medieval townhouses crowd the blocks. Even if it was possible to take a car down the narrow alleys there, you wouldn't want to – part of the enchantment is getting lost in the labyrinth of streets. For travel into the countryside of North Yorkshire or around the suburbs of the city, private hire cars with dedicated chauffeurs are available. It's also possible to rent boats to sail the Ouse River with a glass of champagne in hand – a great way to get about when the sun's shining.
