Why you NEED to book a staycation in York

Now then, there’s plenty of reasons to stay in many cities over the UK, but we know where you really need to go...York.

Our hotel in York has totted up some of the top reasons why you NEED to visit York this year. Take a look, and see if we can entice you back through our doors.


We have the weirdest names for things

From streets to ancient landmarks, York is a quirky place with even quirkier names. The shortest street in York is named Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate. Take a ‘long’ walk through Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate, and through the city walls, to happen upon the dreaded cell of nightmares named Bitchdaughter Tower. Can’t say we didn’t warn you!


The Shambles

Europe’s oldest shopping street is right here. Known as The Shambles, their legendary weekly markets are all the rage among tourists and locals alike, where you can find some of York’s finest independent businesses and support the local community. In fact, The Shambles is so old, some of the buildings date as far back as 1350!



The city was voted one of the happiest places to live

Yorkshire folk are renowned to be some of the most friendly people in the UK. Known as God’s own city, York is committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2030, and the city was recently named as one of the happiest places to live! Just a few reasons why you should have a goosey-gander around our city.



York City Walls

An iconic landmark in York is the historic city walls. For the best panoramic views of our city, the walk along the city walls is best observed early in the morning. Believe it or not, the walls are so old, they date back to 71 AD! Enjoyed by many locals and tourists alike, a morning walk with a cup of coffee is a breath-taking start to your day. 



Spooktacular Ghost Walks

Our city is full of spooky tales, and fans of the supernatural won’t want to miss the chance to take a haunted walk! The Original Ghost Walk of York, The Bloody Tour of York & The Shadows of York are all award-winning performances that lead you through the haunted snickelways of our city in the dead of night.



 The UK’s Chocolate Capital

Everyone’s favourite sweet treat can be found in every corner of York. From the York Chocolate Story Museum, York Cocoa House Chocolate Emporium, to York Cocoa Works. Even our boutique York hotel pays homage with chocolate-inspired rooms! See if you can spot something that points to our decadent history in your rooms.

Plant-based lovers will be delighted to know Tempt York has a range of plant-based artisan chocolate up for grabs too - there's something sweet for everyone in the UK's chocolate capital!


If these reasons aren’t enough to entice you back to our York hotel, we bet our exclusive offers will!

As a Yorkshireman, York is one of my favourite places to visit and I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit York as it will add to your overall experience. I visit many hotels in the UK and Europe during the course of my job and I can not remember feeling so pleased with my choice of hotel.

Hotel Indigo York Reviews



A lovely hotel within walking distance to the centre of York. Very friendly, helpful staff on reception, bar area and dining room. The rooms were immaculately clean and well presented. The bed was absolutely huge and was extremely comfortable. The hotel has a modern, funky feel to it and was very welcoming. The breakfast was superb . Would definitely stay here again.



<p>Conveniently positioned within easy walking distance of the city and Minster. This was our third visit so obviously we’re fans. That said although the previous visits were excellent this time the stay was even better. On check in we were given a complimentary upgrade to a superior room as IHG elite members. The room was spacious, clean and well furnished. Large TV. Massive comfortable bed with high quality bedding. Complimentary snacks with fresh milk and the bonus of a Nespresso coffee machine complete with six “pods”. Decent sized bathroom which was clean and well stocked with quality toiletries. Breakfast on both mornings was excellent. Wide choice of hot and cold items. Plenty of quality juices and smoothies. Service excellent even when busy nothing seems rushed. Very highly recommended.</p>



Excellent hotel. Rooms very nice and extremely clean and quiet. Friendly staff both at reception and restaurant. Breakfast had fantastic choice. Location was really good lots of nice bars and restaurants just minutes away. Short walk to the Shambles and they offered parking just 2 minutes away for a small daily charge. Would definitely stay again. 5 Stars.


Perth, Australia

We have found that it’s the little things that make a huge difference when you’re travelling. They’ve nailed the little things here! You’re always warmly greeted when you pass reception. Comfortable bed, soft towels, immaculate room and free chocolate in the fridge! Breakfast is delicious and finally a coffee I enjoyed. Location is fabulous and parking was easy. Well done to the Team at Hotel Indigo.



We stayed at the Indigo for my birthday recently. It was very modern with quirky room features. The breakfast was world class - such a great variety of treats, including a good selection of gluten and dairy free food. The staff were very helpful and attentive.


Milton Keynes

Stayed for 2 nights, very good quality modern hotel with good sized rooms and breakfast. Cold buffet and hot food freshly cooked to order . Great location within a 5/10 minute walk of York center. Would highly recommend.



<p>My partner, daughter and I stayed for 3 nights on a city break in April 2018. The room was great, Fresh milk in the complimentary mini fridge, fantastic big bed, really really clean, excellent room service and thick black out curtains. The service was excellent from all the staff at all times - reception staff were helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was also fantastic, so much choice on offer and again, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is really well located for the city. It was excellent value for money and we would definitely stay there again. Absolutely 10/10 all round.</p>

This is a nice hotel in a quiet area of York, but still within easy walking distance of the city centre / shambles walls etc. Lovely continental breakfast and a quiet bar area. Ideal if you want a bit of peace in a busy city.



Stayed one night in this hotel ,was very impressed. A warm welcome on arrival from the receptionist and the room was ready ahead of check in time. The room was lovely, very luxurious with lots of nice touche. Biscuits, chocolate and drinks in fridge. Very close to main town and York Minster. Had a lovely evening meal in the hotel restaurant, very reasonable priced and a nice breakfast in the morning before leaving. Would definitely stay here again.



Lovely hotel close to York centre and near all the main sites. Within 5 minutes walk to the Shambles. Excellent staff and facilities. On arrival complimentary mini treats in room due to it being my Birthday. Complimentary water and chocolate and biscuits in room together with tea making facilities. Made the 2 night stay in York most enjoyable. Would definitely stay there again and recommend.


Greater Manchester

We had a very pleasant stay on a Saturday night when visiting York. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the Shambles and central York area. The staff were all good and friendly with good check in service and also in the bar. The breakfast choice and service was also very good. The room and the hotel was decorated very well. We stay here again if staying in York.
