The Grange Hotel York
What We Love
- Stay in a 19th century boutique hotel in central York, including breakfast and dinnerThe breakfast and three-course dinner, both complimentary
- Attending afternoon tea at Bettys – a must
- The quiet location, even with the city center just a 10-minute walk
What To Know
- The 1830 hotel has a warm ambience, with antique paintings and a wood-burning fireplace
- It's an easy stroll to the medieval city walls and York's historic center
- 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
The Hotel was picked for the beauty of the hotel and its location to the City of York.
We were very pleased with our room and had a very comfortable bed.
The food was excellent and the staff in the Ivy Restaurant were exceptional. Especially Andy who obviously enjoys the work very much. Breakfast was beautifully cooked and my Husband and I had a wonderful stay. It was great value and they even had a wide range of Vegetarian food. I highly recommend this hotel and would stay again if visiting York.
beautiful venue - the rooms are gorgeous. However its the hottest hotel I have ever stayed in! We were there for a wedding which was really well put together.
The staff were great and we had a great time
Our stay here as A family could have been better. Firstly I will say the ivy brasserie restaurant staff were very attentive. The food was also great
Unfortunately the rest of the experience wasn't great. It was a night away with my partner and son (1yr). We were allocated a room that was what felt like an assault course to get to, a lot of steps. This was also after the reception staff saw we had a pram. The room was adequate,glad we chose the premier room as we only just had enough room with the little one. however felt the charge (£15) for the cot was a bit unnecessary. Never been charged anywhere before.
Also although the staff and food were great in the restaurant they did not have a children's menu, they did russle us something up though but choice was limited to say the least, and the charge was extortionate for what we got.
We booked through secret escapes, with an offer for afternoon tea. This wasn't explained when we could have this, communication was very minimal from booked and reception team
All in all I would not recommend if you have a young family. Which is a shame as it's a beautiful looking hotel.
Wonderful reception Lucy couldn’t do enough for us showed us 8 rooms for us to decide Would highly reccomend this hotel so warm and cozy lovely food especially breakfast and the staff gave a brilliant sense of humour we are going back as soon as we can. Very close to York town centre but quiet
My partner and I stayed just the one night in this charming and friendly hotel. We arrived ahead of time but were nonetheless able to occupy our room immediately and spend the afternoon viewing the sites of York.
This townhouse style hotel has been lovingly restored to its Regency architectural origins and yet still manages to retain a homely and informal ambiance.
Our room was a standard,(room 22), very comfortable, well appointed with an excellent bathroom and, most importantly, a very comfortable and spacious bed.
We enjoyed our evening meal in the cozy, intimate Ivy Brassiere. Excellent selection on the menu. The food was expertly cooked and delicious, served by the friendly, attentive yet unobtrusive Laura and Michael. Thank you.
All in all a most delightful stay and one we are eager to repeat in the future.
