York hotels see slight occupancy rise in 2010

The number of people booking York hotels went up by one per cent in 2010, with the slight increase being helped by room rates remaining the same as 2009, according to new figures.

Visit York's Hotel Occupancy Survey took data from eight guesthouses around the city and found that there was an average 78.8 per cent annual occupancy figure.

This is the highest rate since the tourism board started undertaking the research back in 2007.

Furthermore, 2.3 million visits were made to York's top attractions last year, including the National Railway Museum and Jorvik.

York Dungeon saw a 14 per cent increase in visitors, with 512,000 passing through its turnstiles, while Clifford's Tower had 11 per cent more people queue for entry.

Gillian Cruddas, chief executive of Visit York, said that the results were "positive" given the economic climate.

Later this month, York Dungeon will open its Gladiators of York show, just in time for the Easter holidays.
