Royal Station Hotel

Royal York Hotel 2008

1878AD - 1878AD

A five-storey building of yellow Scarborough brick, the Royal Station Hotel was completed in 1878, a year after the new station opened.  It featured elegant, high-ceilinged banqueting rooms and 100 large bedrooms for anyone who could afford 14 shillings a night.

A 27-room west wing was added in 1896, named Klondyke after the US gold rush of the time. The hotel was later renamed the Royal York.

This was York's second Royal Station Hotel, the first had been built adjacent to the first station.
