Marmadukes Hotel

Recent guest reviews

A hotel with a difference and lots of character . We felt welcomed by the Staff and we were happy to be able to park our car in their grounds . This can be reserved which we would recommend . The room we stayed in was eclectic. So if you like old furniture but with style this is a great place for you . The hotel was in a handy location . We could walk into the City centre easily from here . The evening meal was one of the best we have ever had . Thoroughly worth every penny . We would return to this hotel . It is a little dusty in some areas but this did not distract from our enjoyment of staying here

Stayed at Marmadukes for 2 nights in one of their four poster rooms. From beginning to end the customer service was amazing. Emily was super organised in arranging all the surprises that my boyfriend had arranged for me. Scarlett and Laura ensured that our stay was comfortable and attended to our every need with extra consideration and thoughtfulness including the parking arrangements, housekeeping and check out, going above and beyond our expectations. The room was absolutely beautiful and looked even better than the pictures. The bathroom was very spacious. There was a freestanding bath with a shower attachment which gave the option to either bath or shower. The location was perfect, being only a short stroll from the main highlights of York. Thank you again for making my birthday so special -hope you enjoyed the token of gratitude we left for you in the fridge :)

We love York, so my husband surprised me to one night stay at this hidden gem! When we arrived the on duty manager helped us take our bags to the loft suite, if you can, book this room as you have your very own sauna in the bathroom, own living room area and massive double bed! Which was very spacious and clean. Great location, 5/10min walk to the Shambles area of York were we had a few drinks as we arrived early so our room wasn’t ready. £7 parking, which is reasonable for being right in the city and got a space straight away! The food - wow! Even if your not staying here I would recommend to dine here - dinner or breakfast Dinner was included in our midweek deal - which was a 7 course tasting menu, which made the stay extra special! We do love a good tasting menu and blogged it on my Instagram page - NETastyTreats All staff made us feel welcome! Thanks, we will be back!

We stayed here for a wedding September 17. Small and perfect affair. The room we had (2+1 child) was lovely with four poster bed and small camp bed and sofa. Bathroom fine. Old fashioned deep bath which filled quickly but just a hand held shower so if you like a stand up one then choose a different room. Room for the wedding was lovely and bright and perfect for the gathering of about 40 people that we were and was transformed quickly into the Dining Room. Reception canapes were amazing and free flowing! Good selection of bar drinks and spirits. Wedding breakfast (meal) was fabulous. The marmite butter as a side to the bread was to die for ! (a speciality I understand). Next morning the breakfast got us all back on track. This is a great place to have a celebration or just to stay overnight for a weekend away shopping or chilling in York as it is only a short walk to the centre. Staff are friendly and service great. If you are a light sleeper take ear plugs as I did as there will naturally be noise as you are in a city centre. If I was to nit pick it would be for thicker fluffier towels and a shower in the bathroom but a fantastic wedding and fantastic stay. Thank you!

This is my 4th stay at Marmadukes, and it was another excellent stay. The breakfast was a superb start to the day. I was there with 2 friends and it was the ideal place for our university reunion. The quality is high and very consistent. Thans to all the staff.

Very good home type B&B, the breakfast it’s really good with healthy and local products. The room are really Victorian age so is nice with bath but not shower and beautiful furnitures. Haven’t elevator so it’s difficult if you have heavy luggage. The staff isn’t friendly I think in a zone you can find better options.

Stayed 2 nights, room was a little on the small side, lighting a little dim, but we didn't spend a lot of time in our room so weren't terribly bothered by that. We sat in the lounge in the main building to read one evening and brought back lunch and sat in their back garden to eat it, people are very nice and we found the breakfast was very good.

A beautiful town house tucked away in a lovely quiet area, away from all the hustle and bustle of city life but only a five minute walk into the city when it was required. Marmadukes is quality and value for money, that's why we return again and again.

quiet leafy surburban location.10 minutes from the centre .comfortable clean and spacious rooms with free standing bath. this was our second visit and is the perfect hotel for a short break in what is a beautiful and historic city

Cozy, charming and full of character. Everything you want from a hotel in York. Breakfast was great and staff friendly and attentive. Difficult to find fault. Highly recommended for solo travellers and couple alike.
