Lovely hotel

Stayed at The Grand for two nights. We had a room on the second floor in the new part of the building. Absolutely lovely room. Super comfy bed and all amenities you could need. We were on a bed & breakfast basis and the breakfast was very good. Lots of choice on offer. The service we received was mainly very good. Occasionally the bar service was a bit slow, but overall everyone we encountered did everything they could to help you have a wonderful stay. Would not hesitate to return if we visit York again.

I’ve never written a review before, but I have to say the Grand Hotel & Spa in York is a wondrous little beauty, rich with the absolute utmost of traditional British hospitality. I was very fortunate to procure a little room in the 1906 bar (free of charge) for a little gathering I had planned for my Japanese students. This was arranged by a young gent named Marcus, who I’d like to thank first and foremost for preparing the arrangements for our gathering. I would also like to comment on his first-class customer service and his ability to make visitors feel right at home. I believe the Grand Hotel & Spa is very lucky to have employees such as Marcus working for them.

Furthermore, I would also like to thank the rest of the 1906 lounge staff, who unfortunately there names I did not get chance to note; your hospitality is by far above anything I have ever come across in my experience to this date. You’re truly outstanding employees, and once again the Grand Hotel & Spa is lucky to have you.

There is also a third party I would also like to thank, and that is Laura Tichmarsh for making sure that our time at the Grand Hotel & Spa was as memorable as possible.

The Grand Hotel & Spa is a remarkable place, but I have to say it’s the staff that make the visit ten times more special. That’s why I recommend the Grand Hotel & Spa to anyone looking to stay in York, as well as those wanting to grab a drink, or a bite to eat. I will spread the word about this wonderful little marvel, and I’ll be sure to visit again.

If I could give this place ten stars I would, but unfortunately we are limited to mere five.

Wishing you all the very best.

Until next time.


Excellent Hotel. Door men who meet you when you arrive were great with your bags and if you needed help with directions to attractions in York.
We were bed & breakfast which was great and the rooms were fantastic .Never used the hotel bar as we were out in the city at night,
