York's Hidden Gems

The beautiful city of York has an abundance of attractions to explore, from the famous York Minster to the City Walls and Shambles. But what many people don’t know, is set back down winding alleyways are a number of hidden gems just waiting to be discovered.

In this blog, our boutique hotel in York explores some of the city’s lesser-known hidden gems, read on…

 

Treasurer’s House

 

A swanky townhouse which dates back to medieval times, Treasurer’s House was the first ever house given to the National Trust. With a history spanning 2,000 years, it offers a complete collection of antique furniture, textiles and paintings for visitors to admire. The house is complete with stunning gardens, which have won Gold in the Yorkshire in Bloom competition for the past five years! Located just metres away from York Minster, you don’t have to travel far out of our boutique York hotel to discover this beauty.Treasurer's House York[photo credit: Treasurer's House]

 

Bedern Hall

Discover the hidden medieval Bedern Hall, the 14th-century dining hall of the Vicars Choral of York Minster. The hall certainly has a story to tell, from Victorian slums to a bakery and butchers and the building that it is today. Like many historic buildings, Bedern has undergone restoration yet still has many of its original features. Enjoy a coffee, glass of wine and savoury snack in the quaint courtyard café! Bedern Hall can be found tucked away behind the bustling Goodramgate.Bedern Hall York[photo credit: Bedern Hall]

 

Mansion House

Said to be one of York’s best-kept secrets, York Mansion House is the earliest purpose-built house for a Lord Mayor still in existence. Undergoing one of the biggest restorations since it was built in 1732, the house has a fascinating collection of civic artefacts for you to discover. Standing in the heart of the city, Mansion House is can be found on St Helen’s Square, near Betty’s Tearooms!York Mansion House[photo credit: York Mansion House]

Hotel Indigo York Reviews

Sarah,

Lincoln

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.


John,

Southport

<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>


Christine,

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.

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.


Carol,

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.


Mark,

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.


Ian,

Bandbury

<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>


Brian,

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.

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.

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.


Dale,

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.
