Probably where Lenny Henry would stay if he were to ever visit York, this Premier Inn hotel on Blossom Street is a great starting point to explore the city, head out for a night on the tiles or spend a day at the races.
Hotel Facilities & Location
If you’re travelling to York by train the Premier Inn Blossom Street North hotel couldn’t be in a better location. Turn right out of the main station entrance, walk a couple of hundred yards and you’re there.
Whilst not slap bang in the middle of town, Parliament Street – right in the heart of York – is a leisurely 10 minute stroll. Just outside of the city walls at Micklegate Bar, the main route into town also passes numerous pubs, bars and restaurants.
Inside the hotel has all the standard Premier Inn features: comfy bed, air-conditioning, choice of pillows and blackout curtains. They also claim to offer free “unlimited” WiFi however if you read the small print the data limit for each device is actually capped so it’s not unlimited after all.
The main downstairs area facing onto Blossom Street is home to a Costa Coffee and there are meeting rooms available if you’re in town on business.
You might have noticed that you have a choice between two separate Premier Inn hotels on Blossom Street – North and South. The North version is the older of the two but it has a car park which the South hotel doesn’t. The parking is limited though and offered on a first come first serve basis (and is also charged). However, there is also an NCP car park nearby that cost £10.80 per day.
Premier Inn advertise two rates for each room – Flex and Saver. The cheaper Saver rate is non-amendable or refundable – so you might save a few quid but if you don’t end up visiting for whatever reason you won’t be able to get your money back.
