The President’s Lounge

We have created a saloon on the first floor that is available to all of our guests. President George Washington presides over all proceedings from his vantage point above the fireplace.

The lounge offers a beautiful setting in which to relax, read your holiday novel, perhaps learn an insider tip from a fellow guest, or to kick back and sip a glass of your favourite tipple, all the while relishing your stay with us in the beautiful city of York.

We offer a happy hour every day from 5.30pm when guests can enjoy a beverage from a pre-selected range of wine, beer and soft drinks. Other alcohol and a selection of Rowntree and Terry’s chocolate (these chocolates were invented in this city after all!) are available for purchase. We also have a selection of parlour games.
