Middletons Hotel in York Celebrates New Transformations this Spring

Historic Middletons Hotel in York and part of the nationwide group of hotels, spas and inns, Daniel Thwaites, is delighted to unveil its recent refurbishment.

The four-star property which boasts 56 bedrooms within five impressive, listed buildings, complete with a pretty central courtyard, focused its latest renovation project on the Grade II* listed Lady Anne building. Eighteen characterful bedrooms, bathrooms and public spaces have been upgraded to lively playful places, while air-conditioning, windows and insulation have also all been refurbished or replaced.

Inspiration Behind the Interiors

The transformation of Middletons Hotel in York combines quirky British sensibility, blending the old with the new. Refined and comfortable, the design vision – brought to life by interior designer Rachel Wootton – gives a nod to both the history and unique location of the property. This investment in the building, erected in 1829 as Anne Middletons Hospital, now better reflects its Georgian heritage, preserving and restoring the special architectural and historic interest of the listed building.

The Heritage Suite and House Suite rooms have all been given a fresh and modern yet luxurious look, while the wildlife-inspired décor found in the Cosy Rooms reflects the nature found in the nearby courtyard garden. Medicinal plant design details also link back to the heritage of the house.

The latest project to be completed within this extensive Middletons Hotel in York renovation programme, the Lady Anne building has been sensitively transformed by building contractor Murray and Willis, which has also previously refurbished Cromwell House, originally an old sawmill, plus the hotel’s two Sir Joseph Terry Alms Cottages and more recently, The Sawmill restaurant, bar and lounge areas.

Middletons Hotel Location

A stay at Middletons Hotel in York – which recently scooped the ‘Large Hotel of the Year’ accolade at York Tourism Awards 2023 – places you in the heart of the beautiful and charming city of York. Based within York City Walls, the hotel is just a short distance from York Minster and the 800-year-old landmark, Clifford’s Tower, as well as being perfectly placed for visits to York Racecourse.

Although close to the bustling city and York’s top restaurants, Middletons Hotel in York is also fortunate to boast green spaces and therefore no detail has been overlooked within this latest phase of the refurbishment programme, with the addition of bird boxes in heritage colours outside Lady Anne House also added to encourage more wildlife to the hotel’s garden.
