Christmas hotel room launched in York complete with snow carpet and free mince pies

Inside the York Christmas room

Yet to feel fully festive? Perhaps a stay in York’s Christmas-themed hotel room will change that.

The special family room comes complete with a tree, snow carpet, red and white bedding and mince pies.


It is being trialled at the new Monks Cross Travelodge. The room is available to book from Monday 17th December 2018 to Sunday 6th January 2019, with prices starting from £45 per night.

Featuring a mural of Father Christmas, shiny red bedding and a 6ft decorated tree, it should cheer up even the grumbliest Grinches.

We love Christmas

A survey for the hotel chain found that 80% of adults in York reported they love Christmas. Shakila Ahmed of Travelodge said:

  • Christmas is such a magical time, so to mark the opening of our latest hotel, York Monks Cross Travelodge, we thought it would be fun to create a ‘Wonderful Christmas’ themed room.

    The magical Christmassy setting within the room provides an extra element of festive cheer, for customers staying away from home during the holidays.

She added: “Our York Monks Cross Travelodge team are super excited about their Christmas room and can’t wait to see customer reactions. It certainly has the ho-ho-ho factor.”
