So much more than a country hotel!

An abundance of local activities and facilities make it an attractive destination and a fantastic place to live. York has a resident population of approx 3200 and visitor numbers to the town have almost doubled in the last 12 months. The York Palace Hotel includes:

  1. An attractive Manager’s apartment with full views of the main street
  2. 5 period hotel rooms in a variety of configurations
  3. 15 recently constructed “Terrace Rooms” fitted out to a luxurious standard all ensuited.
  4. A beautifully presented Bar & Restaurant (York’s “go to” venue for its resident population’s celebrations)
  5. A quaint and popular (summer) beer garden

All this on a 2883 sqm footprint of freehold land which has a “commercial” zoning The premises and business trade with the benefits of a full RGL “Hotel” license (No 6020034629) The property has had in excess of $3,000,000 spent on it, over the last 10 years and presents even better than the day it was built.

The accommodation component of The York Palace Hotel trades 7 days/week, whilst the food & beverage component (bar/restaurant) trades the more “civilized” hours of Friday to Sunday lunch and Thursday to Sunday dinner (opportunity to extend trade to 7 days/nights should a buyer wish).

Trip Advisor top “Value for Money – Accommodation, Bar & Restaurant” in York. The property & business are operated by an elderly couple who are looking to “finally” retire. They have very realistic expectations on price and will consider offers in the region of $2m (WIWO).
