Have just come back from a 2 night stay here and loved it! The rooms were large, spotlessly clean and the bed was the biggest and most comfortable I have ever slept in. All the staff we met were polite and would do anything they could to help you. We used the swimming pool which was nice. The hotel itself... More

In an age of on-line check-ins and electronic kiosks that dispense precoded room entry cards, the Cedar Court Grand is a haven for those who crave to be greeted personally (by name!) and treated like an important guest, even if only for a short while. The facilities are very much to stuff of legend, but in my view, the key... More

Had a great weekend here for my husband's birthday. I'd booked an Executive room but we were upgraded to a Deluxe room upon arrival which was huge. Rooms are well appointed and bathrooms lovely. The only downside was there was no view from the room apart from a car park but it didn't really matter. Great breakfast both days -... More

The Cedar Court Grand lives up to its name - the public areas are elegant and beautiful and the room and bathroom definitely the most spacious of any I have ever experienced in the UK. Our room was fantastic - spotlessly clean, tastefully furnished in a traditional style and extremely well-appointed, and we only booked the least expensive room type.... More

I'd booked a 2 night stay as a surprise for my husband to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary weekend and decided to book here after reading good reviews and I wanted something special!

I stayed here before and thoroughly enjoyed it, 5 star claims, 5 star pricing therefore I had high expectations. The hotel felt like a different place.... It started on arrival where I had to struggle up the steps of the hotel vs being assisted with the bags. The welcome at reception was warm but one of the rooms I booked... More

Yes it's comparatively expensive but it's five star and having enjoyed a one night stay this week we've come to the conclusion it's the best (only) hotel to stay in while in York. Simply first class all round...loved it.

Everything was outstanding. The hotel is a grand building and the rooms very generous in size. The staff were friendly and helpful, spa was a welcome haven, well laid out and clean. Dinner in the Brasserie was excellent and highly recommended. York Minster only a few minutes walk away. I could not fault it.
