Once the headquarters of the North Eastern Railway, this hotel echoes its grand architecture with grand style. Only minutes from the train station and a short walk to all the historic attractions in York gives this hotel a great appeal. We were greeted on arrival by doormen, our bags taken care of and a warm welcome from a smiling receptionists.... More

My partner and I spent an afternoon in the spa at the Cedar Court in April 2014, we're a young couple from London, seeking a relaxing break from our usually busy working lives so this seemed like the ideal place. Staff were friendly, and the spa was lovely. The gym was a a tad dated, but there was a nice... More

Looks great feels great but service needs a big training session all round. Arrived to find out that we had to pay £20 for Car park when I asked about this when booking was not told about this but they did take it off, we went out and came back to have a drink in the bar, ordered kir royale...

the hotel was booked for one nights stay in a standard twin room. This trip was booked by my daughter as a treat for a 'special' birthday. We arrived at the hotel and were too early to book in but it wasn't a problem for us to leave our luggage. When we returned to the hotel we were told by... More

We wanted a comfortable central hotel for a short stay with our daughter and her two children (aged 9 and 7) so that we were close to the places of interest - and York Station, as we were travelling by train. The Cedar Court had been recommended to us by two un-connected friends, one of whom is in the hospitality... More

This was out fifth stay at the hotel and the experience was just as goods as the first time. We found every member of staff polite and welcoming and they certainly have the knack of making every guest feel special.

We stayed one night, but felt as refreshed as if it'd been a week. The staff at this hotel are incomparable: from booking, to concierge, to check-in, to housekeeping, to dining - nothing was too much trouble: the staff are universally cheerful, accommodating and professional. I'm usually picky, and yes, the secondary glazing is somewhat inadequate, but nothing detracted from... More

Visited for our 10th anniversary and wasn't disappointed. Hotel is finished as you would expect with all the main public areas being beautifully presented with a nice reference to its old Grand train hotel past. Our classic room 318 was very spacious with all mod cons. Decent deep bath with audio link, powerful shower, m&b toiletries, separate toilet suite. If... More

Very firendly staffs in a grand historic building with good interior decoration. The courtesy welcome drink and especially the hot chocolate to my four-years-old daughter is great and heart-warming. Very close to the major spots in the city and takes 10-15 minutes walk.

One night is not long enough ! Just returned from my first visit to York and what a fabulous first impression. We drove - but as the station was only a stones throw away we will probably do that next time. Sat Nav took us straight to the door where my door was opened for me and a lovely Yorkshire... More
