Although not in the city centre, Premier Inn York North West offers a great value stay in York. Close to the ring road it’s also in a very handy location for those looking to make an early start and avoid the rush hour jams.
Hotel Facilities & Location
The hotel comes with all the usual Premier Inn features like luxury kingsize beds, choice of pillows and blackout curtains. They also guarantee a good night’s sleep – and if you don’t get one they’ll give you your money back. There’s a lift to the upper floors but unlike at most Premier Inns there isn’t any air condititioning.
The in house restaurant is a Beefeater, however if this doesn’t take your fancy there are a couple of other places to eat nearby. Breakfast is served between six-thirty and ten-thirty – and for £8.99 you can eat all you want.
The location of the hotel itself definitely isn’t glamorous. Just off a junction of the main outer ringroad, the Premier Inn is on the edge of a business park. The only things of note nearby are Maxi’s (a Chinese restaurant), a Wetherby Whaler and a Bannatyne Health Club & Spa (you can get a day pass for £15).
Whilst York is technically walkable from the hotel, it’ll take you about an hour to walk into town. However, there is the park and ride nearby at Rawcliffe Bar or alternatively you can catch a train from the station in Upper Poppleton (although this isn’t a particularly frequent service).
If you have a car then there are a number of car parks in the city centre where you can leave your wheels – although expect to pay between about £6 to £10 for a long days sightseeing. Parking at the hotel itself is free – which is a handy bonus.
There are two rates for rooms – Flex and Saver. Saver is the cheaper of the two, however once you’ve booked that’s it; you can’t change your booking or get a refund if your plans change.
