They’re celebrating at a York pub after it was named the Best Historic Hotel in Britain. And to make it even better, two other city venues were named in the top ten.
The Rose And Crown on Lawrence Street was crowned best historic hotel in the Simply The Guest awards run by LateRooms.com.
These national hotel awards are based purely on guest reviews. And the glowing reviews for the Rose And Crown include these beauties:
