Choosing the perfect setting

Our luxury hotel offers a stunning setting with a choice of elegant event space and rooms to reflect the size and style of your occasion. In addition to 11 internal event rooms, many of which blend historic and ornate features from the original Victorian hotel with stylist and contemporary decor, our modern Event Centre is a purpose-built space ideal for larger parties, celebrations and balls.

Our beautiful gardens, with manicured lawns and views of the historic York Minster and Roman Walls in the distance, also allow you to add an outdoor element to your occasion. From marquees on the lawn to BBQs and drinks receptions on the terrace, we're always happy to help bring a breath of fresh air to make your celebration even more unique.

Savouring finest quality event menus

We know catering can make all the difference to an event and we're proud to showcase the culinary delights our Executive Chef has expertly crafted in our sumptuous event menus. We're confident our range of menus, which are bursting with seasonal flavour and local provenance, cater for all palates, offering everything from amazing appetisers to splendid four course taster dinners.
