A lovely building with modern décor. The location is excellent right next to the railway station and just a few minutes walk into the centre. We had a nice welcome and found all the staff to be friendly. Our room was perfect, very comfortable and well equipped. Public areas are all nice, very relaxing. Recommended.

A lovely hotel and grounds within walking distance of the centre. We had a friendly and efficient check in and our room was very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed a couple of hours in the nice bar before walking into town to check out the local restaurants. Breakfast was good but service for clearing tables a little slow. Overall a very nice and enjoyable stay.

This was a return visit to York after many years and have to say we couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The location is central and the building beautiful. The room we had was a delight, well furnished and decorated, nice toiletries. We decided to eat in the restaurant at night which was excellent. Breakfast was good although a little chaotic. We wouldn't hesitate to return and can recommend.

Stayed at Principal York on business, in a great location opposite the train station and walking distance to the town. Lovely room that was comfortable and stylish. Tasty breakfast that was cooked to order. Well appointed indoor swimming pool that was heated to a perfect temperature. I will be back when next working in the area.
