For a unique, memorable stay in York, try the Bar Convent.

Our guest house has recently undergone a major refurbishment project with all rooms being newly decorated and some are brand new rooms.

The location of the Bar Convent is second to none; just around the corner from York Railway Station and a stone’s throw from Micklegate Bar which is the main entrance into York’s historic walls, with an easy ten-minute walk into the city centre.

We also offer guests the use of a kitchen, comfortable seating area and laundry facilities.
