Race Season

Dear Guests,   During the busy summer months when the York Races are on, we politely ask that you read over the following information to make your stay with us as smooth and enjoyable as possible:   -If you are staying for the races and need to get changed before 2pm, we will do our very best to let you quickly get ready in your apartment before it has been cleaned, which we know isn’t ideal but at least you can get changed in time!  This cannot be guaranteed though.   -Please check with us if you are ensure about sleeping arrangements in your apartment, preferable before you have made your booking.   -Please plan your trip in advance, for example make sure you book a taxi days in advance, as there can be waiting times of up to 3 hours on the day!

Why Bennett House is the perfect Hen Party accommodation…

York is a popular hen night destination due to the wide array of bars, clubs, restaurants, and other fun activities to do all within the city walls. The one thing York doesn’t have is a wide array of accommodation for large groups. Many hen parties are forced into booking multiple hotel rooms to accommodate for all their nearest and dearest, and it’s no fun! In our previous blog post ‘The York Hen Party Guide 2016‘, we mentioned our beautiful town house Bennett House, but now we’d like to give you the full tour. You will be met at the house by a member of staff who will give you the keys and a full tour of the house, and answering any questions you may have about the house.  We will also do our best to answer any questions about the local area. The house is conveniently located next to the River Ouse within walking distance to most popular bars and attractions in York. The spacious kitchen and dining area has all the amenities and appliances you need for the perfect hen party getaway, and includes a small breakfast bar and family sized dining table for your party to enjoy a […]
