Family-run boutique hotel brand GuestHouse is to open its second property in York this December.
Brothers Tristan, James and Tom Guest took over the former Grange hotel in the city this year and it has since undergone a refurbishment.
It will reopen under the No.1 by GuestHouse name, with 39 bedrooms, including a Georgian drawing room and library that have been restored to create two large suites.
The hotel will also have a lounge bar serving afternoon tea, a bar with a functioning miniature steam train, a restaurant serving ‘wild British food' and a private dining area. The cellar, which was used as an air raid shelter in World War II, will be transformed into a spa and treatment rooms. Rates will start from £165 on a room-only basis.
A Brighton GuestHouse, named No.124 Kings Road, is due to open close to the seafront in 2023.
