Stag Accommodation in York
At the heart of any stag weekend is the question of accommodation. Without a roof over your heads then you don't have a stag weekend.
The problem nowadays is that fewer and fewer hotels allow bookings from Stag groups. Even if you pretend that you are not, the management always finds out and he ho your cases are in the street!
York, like many big cities, reckons that there are enough tourists to keep them busy so why bother with a group of lads that are celebrating and perhaps letting off a bit of steam at the same time. Yes- you can phone round dozens of hotels and apartments to check the availability of rooms but as soon as you mention the rooms are for a big group of guys or even mention anything to do with stag then suddenly the phone goes down!
At StagDoParty we have worked with dozens of hotels in York and present only those that actually want Stags. They represent great value for money and are normally located within staggering distance of the nightlife- a very important consideration.
We divide the accommodation down into a number of ranges which are explained below with some pros and cons of each.
Multi occupancy rooms:
This is basically rooms that sleep 6 to 12. They are exclusive to your group so you will not be sharing the room with some random smelly backpacker. These are the lowest price but are also great fun. The group bonds better with the incessant banter and laughter because of the communal nature of the room. A lot of stag groups spend little or no time in their beds so why splash out on fancy amenties that you will never use. Breakfast is not normally an option but there are dozens of great places to eat in the morning like KFC or McDonalds in York. Plus breakfast is often finished by 9:30am in a hotel and you guys have missed it again.
2 or 3 star Hotels:
These are Hotels in York that offer the clean basic rooms and are stag friendly- so no worries there! The accommodation is normally 2 or sometimes 3 in a room with single beds or sometimes a sofa style couch as the third bed. Breakfast is not normally included in the price and we ask that you enquire about the availablilty of breakast at the time of booking. The hotels are generally close to all the nightlife and well located for city centre pubs, bars and amenities.
4 and 5 star Hotels:
A lot more luxury and generally city centre locations. These hotels have a lot of facilities and amenities- but are you going to use them? Breakfast is normally included in the price- but consider this- after a late night on the lash are you really going to make it down to breakfast by 9:30am?
Apartments are variable in size and are all self catering. The facilties are good and have the advantage of being both flexible and versatile. They are often great value andloads of fun with small groups interacting. They are dotted about all over York and are never far from the central attractions
All the accommodation options in York are limited especially in the peak summer months. If you are considering York for your Stag weekend then at least get the rooms booked early- without rooms you don't have a weekend. Don't worry about exact numbers as at StagDoParty we can reserve all your accommodation for a tiny deposit with the room numbers remaining completely flexible up to about 6 weeks before your Stag do.
