Experience an idyllic countryside styled retreat at the Marmadukes Hotel York
The Victorian styled 4-star Marmaduke Hotel is located in the quaint city of York set within a lush garden space offering a peaceful country house feel that makes it easy for guests to slowly drift off into a relaxed holiday mode. The hotel itself has been standing for quite sometime and was once a resting house for scholars and gentlemen from the upper classes with the interior still retaining much of its original character, yet boasting many modern upgrades for your comfort and convenience. Just 15-minutes from the town center visitors can experience the best of both worlds; the quiet calming effect of nature and the hustle and bustle of the main city space. There is also a wide choice of restaurants, pubs and entertainment venues dotted through out the surrounding locale, as well as a number of popular tourist attractions such as the massive shambles shopping center and the local castle ruins.
The interior of the Marmadukes Hotel can only be described as elegant with touches of modern convenience; from the inside there is an overall sense of timelessness and age old Georgia/Victorian hedonistic revelry which is multiplied by the fantastic natural garden views seen from almost every window. There is a range of 20 plush room choices available including the petite single, executive double, deluxe double, four poster rooms and the larger loft suite each boasting a cozy homely atmosphere complete with a variety of top quality furnishings and visitor amenities. All guestrooms come bearing an array of creature comforts such as lush Italian and Egyptian fabrics, antique furniture pieces, large en-suite facilities with complimentary toiletries, flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, an in-room safe and free hi-speed WIFI access. Rooms are also provided with full internal heating, a breakfast in bed service and daily newspaper delivery.
The Marmadukes Hotel York also offers all guests a convenient 24-hour reception desk that can be approached for help with arranging tours, luggage storage and document processing for those who require it. In recent years the hotel has become a popular venue for weddings; fully licensed to perform religious ceremonies the building and area provides couples with a truly romantic setting for their special day.
