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
Excellent hotel: helpful staff,beautiful ambiance. Food so good that we dined there for the duration of trip.Highly recommended! All of York 's attractions within easy walking distance. I will certainly book this hotel again should l revisit York.
No matter how many times we stay at The Grange we are always impressed by the friendly and efficient service we receive from Suzanne and her team of staff. Our last visit was no exception and it’s so good to be able to leave the car in the hotel car park and take the short walk through Bootham Bar into the city. The hotel is ideally situated for sightseeing and exploring York’s wonderful streets and buildings, and it’s lovely to come back and relax in our spacious and well-appointed room. As usual, the breakfasts and dinners were delicious and served by friendly staff and the standard of cleanliness in our room and throughout the hotel was excellent. We’ve already booked our next visit and look forward to another great stay!
Ideally placed to explore York on foot, rooms small and dated but very comfortable and well equipped. Modern en-suites. Great friendly service, good food in the Ivy Brasserie, particularly breakfasts which are superb! Using the Daily Telegraph offer this was exceptional value for money.
