SINCE 1091

One of the most historic buildings in England; Grays Court is the oldest inhabited house in York. Witness to political favours courted by medieval Minster Treasurers and three royal visits, the building provided home and sanctuary to the illustrious Gray family for two hundred years.

Owner and manager, Helen, is friendly, considerate and dedicated to ensuring everyone gets the most out of the hotel. Her policy is “go anywhere where the doors are open” which is great for enjoying the space.”
