The Watergate Inn Information


With a peaceful garden overlooking the beautiful River Foss, The Watergate is located within the vibrant and lively heart of York. We are inside the historic City walls in a fast upcoming locality that is rapidly becoming the ‘foodie’ part of town. There’s an excellent real ale brewery almost next door as well as plenty of lively local bars. Indeed, all visitor attractions, shops, Cafés etc. are within an easy stroll. Rooms all feature flat screen TV’s along with en-suite bathroom and Tea/Coffee making facilities. Guests relax in the peaceful riverside garden. Our Bar is closed pending refurbishment. Free Wi-fi is available. Our reception is only open 4 hours a day, but we have staff available to assist you on site 24/7. We regularly allow customers to self check in with the information we supply in our Welcome email. We offer free, secure on-site parking for our customers.
