Cocktails and courtesy
Reviewed 6 hours ago

Came here for lunch, and had the best time imaginable. Concierge service second to none, they couldn’t have been more obliging and helpful. The barman was brilliantly knowledgeable and mixed the nicest cocktails and told us a bit about their history. Food superb, location brilliant, we have had a lovely, splendid time. Can’t recommend it enough.

Fabulous hotel!

My husband booked this very last minute for a surprise birthday night away as i had mentioned that I wanted to stay here sometime. Lovely setting,beautiful old hotel with great history and lots of original features remaining. Valet parking,plenty of staff around foyer to help with bags. Fast check in and when the receptionist knew it was my birthday she offered us 2 glasses of prosecco - nice touch! The room was very much in contrast to the old part of hotel - newly refurbished and very modern - super bathroom and shower (no bath in our room). The hotel seemed very quiet and only 2 others in the bar. Great selection of gins. Concierge very helpful with maps and directions and a fabulous breakfast room. Top hotel and can’t wait to stay there again! Brilliant!

Beautiful place to stay, definitely recommend

Stayed for one night in a beautiful double room on the third floor of the hotel, it had everything you need for a comfortable overnight stay. It’s was clean, neat and the room looked nice and inviting.
The TV was a smart television which was quite good to have, whilst having a morning brew before check out.
The bathroom was a bath / shower room and had the dressing gowns in there. The bathroom I couldn’t fault. So beautiful and relaxing. The toilet was separate and was also a really nice tiled room.


The staff were friendly, accommodating and helpful. I couldn’t fault the service from the staff at the hotel.

I would recommend this place to anyone staying in York. It’s really local to the town centre, so close to the shops, restaurants and bars and all the other attractions that bring you to York such as the castle walk or the Market

Absolute perfection

My stay at the Grand Hotel and Spa was way better than expected. From the moment I stepped through the door, to the moment of my check out, every single member of staff I encountered made sure to smile and offer assistance, or at least be there ready to help. The place is impeccable and really well looked after. The rooms are very large and ridiculously quiet. I have never stayed anywhere where the TV actually worked (Yes, I know, that's probably the best sign of any star stay). It not only worked, it was easy to use and unlike during other stays, I did not have to waste time to figure it out. The insulation was fantastic, easy temperature controls, exemplary cleanliness and tidiness. I cannot wait to be back!

Luxurious room
Reviewed 3 days ago

Let me first say our room was HUGE with 20 foot ceilings, a king comfy bed with a bathroom that had heated floors. We absolutely LOVED our stay. There are special details throughout beginning with the fact that this was once home to the North Eastern Railway Offices and the wood cornices and the huge safe are all there for architectural fans like me to enjoy. The staff are super helpful. Of course plush robes and slippers and salted caramel shortbread are also provided for guests. Definitely a place for relaxing.
