Celebrations at the Abbey Guest House in York

Do you have a special occasion in mind – perhaps a wedding, anniversary or birthday? Let us help you celebrate in style!

We have a great location in a wonderful city and can provide more than just accommodation, so you can celebrate knowing that it’s all organised for you.

So why not arrive by train, or leave your car in our private car park, and simply meander along the river into the city centre for all of York’s historic attractions and fantastic restaurants!

Exclusive use of the Abbey Guest House

This two-night package gives you exclusive use of the whole guesthouse, five double bedrooms for up to ten adults from 1500 check-in on your arrival day to 1000 check-out on departure. The package includes:

  • welcome tea, coffee and a homemade cake of your choice on arrival day
  • two nights’ accommodation
  • full English breakfast each morning

Our rate for a two-night stay midweek is £109 per person, or for a weekend two-night stay is £115 per person (rate is based on 10 people sharing, midweek is Monday to Thursday).

We will do all we can to make your celebration as special as it can be and have developed many contacts who are also able to enhance your event, from Flowers to Photography and everything in between.  Please contact us directly to discuss your specific requirements and our availability.
