Award-winning, four-star Middletons Hotel – part of Daniel Thwaites – proudly welcomes families across the UK to enjoy an action-packed city centre staycation in York. When it comes to hotels, Middletons is that little bit different. Located in the wonderful city of York, the hotel has 56 individual hotel rooms spread across six characterful buildings – Lady Anne House, Cromwell House, Chaplin House, Sir Joseph Terry Cottages, No.56 Skeldergate and The Organ Factory – all Grade II or Grade II* listed buildings steeped in history.
‘VI Little P’ packages: expertly designed for little guests on-the-go – The ultimate ‘VI Little P’ package at Middletons Hotel gets the kids’ seal of approval. From the moment they check-in, to their departing goodbyes, children are given the full royal treatment they deserve. Aiming to go above and beyond for their little guests, all little visitors will find a fun-filled welcome pack when they arrive. During their stay, each child gets their very own fluffy ‘VI Little P’ bathrobe, personalised cookie, fresh milk, tempting snacks and an exciting activity pack to keep them entertained throughout their visit. In the award-winning restaurant, young diners will find a delicious, dedicated menu filled with a flurry of firm favourites.
Family-friendly rooms: sweet dreams are made of this – For families looking for a truly unique stay, the hotel’s two Joseph Terry Almshouses, Chocolate and Orange – a nod to the hotel’s heritage – offers guests a spacious, comfy stay for larger families of up to six. Featuring a plush king-size bed for adults and bunk beds for children under 12, there’s plenty of space to unwind in after a busy day exploring. Each individual room has been designed with a great night’s sleep and lazy morning wake-ups in mind. Guests can also enjoy the little extras such as homemade biscuits and fresh milk provided to make them feel right at home.
City-centre location: the perfect base to explore York – Set inside York City Walls, Middletons really is a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle of the city, whilst being only a stone’s throw away from the tapestry of child-friendly attractions that historic York is famous for. Wander through the quaint shops of the Shambles or visit the many historical monuments, including the renowned York Minster. Take a river cruise or walk the walls for an alternative perspective of the city. Be inspired by the streets, enjoy the change of scenery and explore some of the hotel’s favourite places including York Chocolate Story, JORVIK Viking Centre, Clifford’s Tower and National Railway Museum.
