The Bar Convent

The Bar Convent is a memorable and convenient place to stay to visit York. Situated next to the City Walls, the convent is less than five minutes' walk from York Railway Station and within easy reach of the City Centre.

The building originally dates back to 1686 when it was established as a school for girls. The fine 17th century buildings now house a 20 bedroom Guest House, Exhibition and Gift Shop, together with Conference Rooms and a Café with an excellent reputation for food and service. Our breakfasts have earned us a coveted Visit England Breakfast Award (2017), and we were a finalist for Best B&B in the Visit York Tourism Awards 2017, receiving a commendation as runner up. We also hold a 3 Star Silver rating from Visit England (2017).

All of our rooms have quality mattresses, duvets and pillows and are supplied with tea/coffee facilities with biscuits. Although most of our rooms are now en suite, we also offer a number of rooms with access to shared bathrooms, for those travelling on a budget. All of our rooms have modern flat-screen TVs and have benefited from extensive refurbishment over Summer 2015, including the installation of several brand new en suite bathrooms.

Unlike many other accommodation providers, we also offer a fully-equipped kitchen for guests to use, which is ideal for preparing evening snacks or other home comforts during your stay.

We warmly encourage you to visit us in stunning York, and stay in a place with a rich and fascinating history.

It is offered for view and acceptance purposes at enquiry stage, prior to providing any personal data. It is assumed that this privacy policy has been viewed and accepted prior to making a booking, a copy is also sent to you with your booking confirmation for your records.

Regrettably we have to operate a cancellation policy like the vast majority of UK accommodation providers to discourage late cancellations, which result in lost business. Our policy is as follows:

In the event of a cancellation, if a guest notifies the Guest House 28 calendar days before the first nights stay the deposit is refundable. Thereafter, 50% of the deposit will be refunded if a guest notifies the Guest House 14 calendar days before the first nights stay. No refund will be provided for cancellations made within 14 calendar days of the first nights stay. All cancellations must be made by telephone or email and acknowledged by a member of staff to be valid.

We strongly advise customers to buy travel insurance when travelling.
