The Park Inn by Radisson to undergo multi-million-pound refurb

The hotel includes conference facilities, an in-house gym for residents and parking facilities for up to 51 cars

The Park Inn by Radisson York City Centre on the southern bank of the River Ouse is set to undergo a multi-million-pound refurbishment. The property, which employs 61 staff, will also be the first Radisson-branded property in the north of England. 

It is reported that the refurbishment plans will transform The Park Inn from a three-star midscale offering to a four-star upscale operation. Work is due to start in September and is set to be completed in the spring of next year. 

The seven-storey hotel was originally built in 1969 and has since undergone a number of other refurbishment programmes, with the most recent being in 2015. The hotel includes conference facilities, an in-house gym for residents and parking facilities for up to 51 cars. 

Part of the new offering will see the inclusion of many local brands including Harrogate-based Yorkshire Tea and Sheriff-Hutton’s Guppy’s chocolates and hot chocolate for guests. 

All bedrooms will also be fitted with Chromecast technology for guests to use their Netflix and other streaming services when they are away from home. Guest room decor will follow a sleek Scandinavian style and the restaurant offering will be upgraded.

Dinesh Kunder, general manager of The York Inn, said: “We’re pleased to announce the news of this exciting renovation on Yorkshire Day. It will bring an elevated offering for local visitors as well as for those travelling for business and leisure. 

“It’s very much business as usual for us while the transformation takes place. As the work is internal and we have two wings in the hotel, we will be able to minimise any disruption.”

He added: “All of our 200 bedrooms will be extensively refurbished and there will be investment in the public areas such as the gym and meeting rooms. With this investment in facilities we are very much committed to offering guests, including businesses near and far, an enhanced visitor experience. 

“Our staff have worked extremely hard over the last couple of years and we are all very excited to see the extensive transformation that is about to take place.”
