Hotels in York with Parking – York is a small city with lots of historic buildings and so parking is at a premium.  Lots of hotels just don’t have the space to have parking. 

We have lots of car parks in York and an excellent Park and Ride, but if you are coming by car and staying in a hotel then you are going to want on-site parking.  Fortunately there are plenty of hotels that offer it. 

I have mentioned below whether they have free parking or whether a charge is involved,  I have listed the prices for parking below as a guide, but do check with the hotel in case they change the price.  Have a look at our list of York hotels with parking.

The York Marriott is around a mile and a half from the city centre of York on Tadcaster Road.  It overlooks the Knavesmire and is very close to York Racecourse.   Family rooms have two double beds.

Try the Twilight Afternoon tea that is served in the Garden Room (one of my favourite places in York).  In the summer, Sol Ast takes up residence in the Principal’s gardens, a lovely way to spend a balmy evening.

Grays Court – Parking Available (£15 per night)

Chapter House St, York YO1 7JH

I have a great fondness for Grays Court as it was part of St John’s University when I studied there in the late Nineties.  I remember fondly my lectures in these beautiful rooms.  It has since been transformed into a boutique hotel with a fine dining restaurant.  They won the Visit England Award for Excellence 2020 for Small Hotel of the Year.   It’s very central with amazing views of the Minster on one side and the Bar Walls on the other.  There are lots of great restaurants and pubs on Goodramgate too.

“The rooms at Grays Court have been lovingly restored to provide a mix of ageless character and modern comfort. From the William IV poster bed of the Willoughby to the double monsoon shower in the Cumberland; delight in the luxury of a stay at Grays Court. From a wonderful family get away to a romantic weekend for two, we have something to suit every occasion.”

Due to limited space, parking is available for hotel guests only by prior arrangement at a cost of £15 per car per night.
