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
Lovely hotel situated perfectly less than 10 minutes walk to York Minster. Pay the £10.00 parking fee as it's a challenge parking in York especially at this time of year. We arrived a couple of hours before check in and we able to park up which was a great help. Had an upgraded room with A/C which is a must even in December as rooms are very hot. Room was very spacious, super comfy bed and pillows. Rooms can be quite difficult to locate as hotel is like a rabbit warren - with rooms in no particular order. Dinner and breakfast in the Ivy both delicious. Would definitely return.
We’ve just returned home after another excellent stay at The Grange Hotel. From the moment we arrived to the time we left we were made to feel welcome and received excellent service from all the staff. The hotel has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and the rooms are spacious, spotless and have excellent facilities. The breakfast menu is extensive and all the hot food is cooked to order - and we appreciate our “well done” brown toast - especially when it’s prepared (and served) by the hotel manager!! Thank you Suzanne for another great break at the Grange and to all the staff who looked after us so well. We will be back!!
Me and my husband have just arrived home after a long weekend in York
We stayed at the Grange Hotel from Friday to Sunday
It’s a lovely hotel, rooms very tastefully decorated, the only downside was there was 2 xmas parties also booked in, one on the Friday night and one on the Saturday night, so we where unable to use the restaurant on these nights, but there’s always somewhere in York to get a meal
The breakfast at the Grange was really lovely, everything was cooked perfectly and the service was very good
We would definitely return to this hotel :)
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend
We stayed here for the first time and couldn’t believe what a lovely place we had found. The hotel is very comfortable and the staff are wonderful. We had a deal which included one evening meal. The food was delicious as was breakfast with some great choices. Our room overlooked the car park and had a very comfortable bed and a lovely en-suite bathroom.
It’s walking distance into York and when you’ve had a long day seeing everything in town, you can relax in one of the many settees and enjoy a drink by the fire. Superb.
My wife and I stayed in this conveniently located hotel to all the beautiful city of York attractions. We booked two nights stay of standard room with one night meal and breakfast. They gave us a bigger room in the third floor, premium one which is very much appreciated with courtesy morning newspaper. The room is excellent : great size with large bathroom and separate shower, it has free safe and a fridge with fresh bottle of milk already there, so no long life packets of milk, and you can put there anything you may wish to bring with you, like wine or cold drink etc, we didn't because the hotel has a lovely bar cosy with live fireplace and very comfortable and luxury to sit in , great sofas and armchairs , newspapers and magazines etc. The food both breakfast and dinner is of high quality and served and serviced very well indeed, even you can have speciality coffee like cappucino included. Instead of talking too much about it I would summarise it as : very good all in all and we really enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The only unfortunate downsize which can not be helped the hotel is on a main road which you can here road traffic , this can of course be avoided if you choose a room on the other side of the building f quieter ! Their car park, not free and charged at £10/night, located behind the building and can access the hotel from it.
We will definitely consider it in our next visit to York .
