It’s the most wonderful time of the year and no sooner than you know the Christmas season will be back in no time at all with all that festive tinsel, glitz, and sparkle.
York, is a pretty perfect destination to enjoy some seasonal cheer with plenty to do, the city has an amazing atmosphere and the Christmas markets are awesome!
The hotel Indigo York, located in the historical medieval neighbourhood of Walmgate Bar is an ideal location to soak up all that York has to offer.
Warmly welcomed by the team, this beautiful boutique hotel provides a snug and cosy home away from home whereby the end of your stay you do not want to check out!
The Christmas tree by reception cleverly had all the hotel staff photos attached, made you fee right at home, part of the family. The hotel felt festive, as they had hung out all the decks to make it feel super special for all their guests to enjoy.
Before checking in we explored the city including the Christmas markets, The cobbled shambles and had a few glasses of mulled wine along the way.
Then our afternoon got more fun, fabulous, and festive with an amazing Afternoon Tea with the hotel No 88 Walmgate restaurant.
A perfect way to escape the Christmas Craziness outside, sit back relax and sip a few glasses of prosecco while enjoying fantastic finger sandwiches, scrummy scones with jam and clotted cream along with some super sweet treats including this cute little gingerbread person.
Our stay started next level, as we had been allocated a luxurious Superior Premium room, that is fully air conditioned, a big cosy bed with fine 100% Egyptian cotton bed linen and a lovely personalised welcome message scribed onto the vanity area mirror – just such a lovely touch!
It’s all in the details and I love how Hotel Indigo York have incorporated York’s historical past by including an eclectic display of historic pictures showing how life used to be.
Our Superior Premium room came with a fully stocked tea tray with biscuits and coffee pods with a quirky themed Yorkshire message that made us giggle. The lovely team has also put a few extra Yorkshire treats for our celebrations which we really appreciated.
Once you are all settled in, you can freshen up in the wonderful walk-in open plan spa inspired, bathroom with a deep sunken bath, a walk in double rainfall shower area along with complimentary toiletries – just divine.Continue reading
