The review is in!

We recently welcomed the editor of Plush Magazine to stay at The Fort. As a lifestyle magazine, we felt that it would be the ideal place to showcase just how beautiful The Fort is.

Not only did we receive a thumbs up for The Fort’s quirky décor, but we also received praise for our breakfasts served in Kennedy’s Bar and Restaurant (served from 10am).

We are pleased to say that not only has The Fort received a full page spread, but also features in the Leeds Guide, available as a hard copy at numerous vendors across Leeds and also visible via their fantastic website.

Another piece of exciting news is that we welcomed a journalist from the Guardian, who is compiling a review of the best of York. We can report that he not only had a great time at The Fort, but also took advantage of the sumptuous breakfast that is provided at Kennedy’s Bar and Restaurant. We will keep you posted and feature his review in the when it appears in the paper and online.

For all info, and not to mention updates of what there is to do in this great city, please feel free to check out our Facebook page.

New delivery at The Fort

We recently decided to invest in a computer for use in The Fort’s communal area the other week, and we are thrilled to announce that it has been delivered and is being prepared for installation.

As we are so keen on shouting about The Fort online we felt it only right that you should be able to have a free access point to the internet at The Fort. Although we offer complimentary WiFi, you may not have a laptop or smartphone with you so we hope our new edition will provide you with the opportunity to access our website, designed by the very talented team at York’s digital design agency Nugenko. From the website you can find out what’s happening in York along with access to our various social media sites (including this blog!).

As soon as the computer is linked up we’ll send a tweet and put a picture on here and Facebook.

Just to note that our beautifully designed lift is currently undergoing some TLC, so if you are heading over to stay with us in the next few weeks you’ll have to bare with us. As soon as it is brought back to life we’ll let you know. (You can read the interview with Simon Gornall on how he came up with his concept for the lift’s interior by clicking here.)

Freebies with The Fort

The Fort recently ran a competition in Kennedy’s Bar and Restaurant’s e-newsletter, where one lucky entrant could win a night’s stay in a double room of their choice here at The Fort. We can now announce that the winner of the competition was Shannon Potts from York.

As part of the prize, we request the winner offers a few words about their stay, so we look forward to Shannon’s words when she takes advantage of her night here at The Fort.
