- Dine on a slab of tender steak at the brasserie in the hotel's brick cellar
When you’re visiting a city as historic and beautiful as York, you need somewhere to stay that fits the tone – no minimalist box will cut it here. You need ivy tangling its way up the heavy stone walled exterior, roaring fireplaces, dramatic high ceilings and gold-framed portraits to survey the grandeur of the room. And that’s exactly what you’ll find at the luxurious Grange Hotel.
Just half a mile and a 10-minute walk from the city center, The Grange Hotel is a Grade II listed building, built in 1830. Solid and imposing from the outside and filled with luxe boutique Regency design inside, it’s a heavenly base for a trip to York. The grand lounges offer a cozy spot for a post-shopping chill out and dining here is a feast of good old British home-cooking in The Ivy Brasserie.
Using the hotel as a glamorous base, you’ll be able to explore the sights of York, from the numerous high-end designer shops, independent boutiques and excellent drinking and dining options to the narrow cobbled streets of The Shambles, the pretty Museum Gardens, afternoon tea at Bettys (a must-do!) and the majestic York Minster cathedral.
How to Get There
Stayed at the Grange Hotel. A great selection of hot and cold food available for breakfast. We had an evening meal as part of our package and the food was superb. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
The hotel room was immaculate and well stocked. Location was reasonable too.
I will definitely return to this little gem.
Spent 2nights on a deal, and had an excellent time. Food in the restaurant was 1st class the staff staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Asked for a room with a shower one of the best walk in showers I’ve used. Will definitely recommend to friends will be back
Stayed 2 nights in March for a weekend break. Arrived by train late Friday night and took a 5 minute taxi to the hotel (could have walked in 10 but it was pouring!).
Hotel is in a beautiful grey stone building just a short walk from the City Walls and Abbey Ruins. Gorgeous welcoming entrance hall and several nooks and crannies with comfortable sofas and armchairs to take a drink from bar in. Interesting books and magazines on hand too.
Standard double room was lovely - very comfortable bed with excellent linen. Bathroom was fabulous - very modern, lights at floor level for night-time visits, power shower and large bath. Plenty of hanging space in wardrobe and separate space for hair/makeup prep!
Breakfast was excellent - lots of cold to choose from and a good hot menu with great friendly service. Really good coffee too.
As part of my booking (with Secret Escapes) we had the afternoon tea included - due to leaving early PM on Sunday the hotel kindly did us a 'packed afternoon tea' including cake, sandwiches, scones and bottled water in paper bags to take on the train :)
We spent one day at the Railway Museum (10 minute walk) and the next strolling around the city. On the Saturday night we googled local restaurants and by chance booked the excellent 'Cafe No 8 Bistro' just a few minutes walk away - it was superb. Small fresh menu, lovely cosy place with great wine list and service.
A friendly and warm hotel located close to the centre of York. Staff are very helpful and friendly especially Reception staff.
Rooms are nicely proportioned with great facilities including a walk-in shower.
A very good restaurant is located in the hotel where food and service are good.
Thoroughly recommended this hotel.
Just returned from a 2 night stay,had it on a deal and was completely satisfied. The room was well equipped with a large comfortable bed. Breakfast and evening meal was al la carte, serving first class food. All the staff were polite and friendly. A great 4 * hotel, conveniently located to all that York has to offer.
