A new boutique hotel has opened in York, claiming to offer a mix of ‘Parisian chic, Yorkshire heritage, pop art and period patterns’.

Clementine’s, formerly Marmaduke’s on St Peter’s Grove in Clifton, opened in late June following a £1m makeover.

The 28-room hotel occupies a historic townhouse once owned by a Victorian gentleman, and is just a short walk from the city walls.

“Blending classic art with modern-day mischief, Clementine’s sees cheeky interior touches including vibrant art and a full blossom tree adorning the reception, complete with purple neon lights,” a spokesperson for the hotel said.

Each bedroom has been individually designed in a contemporary style with bold colours and patterns - greys, greens and blues accented with mustards and reds – that the hotel says befits the historic building.
