1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Wrote a review when we recently stayed, just wanted to reply to the manager. Your hotel is run down. Customers are given a false review. Food cold rooms shabby. I asked for low level room and was put on 6 the floor. Seagulls tapping on my window. Single room for a double. Horrid place won't be staying again

We arrived around 12pm but check-in was not available until 3pm. The lady at reception did all the paper work, took our luggage and off we went for a stroll. The hotel is very well located, only a short walk over the bridge to go up the Minster. While we were out, the receptionist called us to let us know... More

Ideally situated 5 star hotel just two minutes walk from the train station and 5 minutes walk from the town centre. Check-in was efficient and the reception staff so well mannered and turned out. Huge bedroom on the 3rd floor with very comfortable bed and decent sized modern bathroom. Nice range of TV channels but unfortunately no SKY sports. That... More

We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions before; I wanted to take my daughter away for a girly treat and I thought The Grand would be perfect. I wasn't wrong! When we checked in we were informed that we had been upgraded from a junior suite to a full suite. My daughter and I were taken to the... More

All the staff we dealt with and come across were all friendly and helpful. Our room was perfect, two bathroom, lounge area, and a lovely big bed!!! The hotel immaculate, it's... More

Stayed here with my wife for two nights this month and the service and room was still of the highest quality. Breakfast was outstanding and items not on the menu were provided with no problem whatsoever. Just a couple of minor issues. There were ring marks on my bedside cabinet so had not been cleaned perfectly and when we ordered... More

We really enjoyed our three night stay here in August. Friendly welcome from reception who also escorted us to the room and explained how everything worked. We travelled with our one year old and there was even a tiny dressing gown And slippers for her. The pool area was really nice and not too busy in the morning. We had... More

The room was nice and clean the bed was comfortable, however the bathroom was a bit outdated and could have done with an update. Great location with ample parking which was free, only a short walk into York city centre.

We came for an over night stay at the hotel, and were very pleased with the staff and hotel. Staff were chatty, helpful and friendly. We were delighted to return to our room after eating in the wonderful restaurant to find our bed had been turned down. In the morning your continental breakfast was very good, with the fruit being...

My partner and I had a great time whilst staying here. The staff are very helpful and overall the stay was very satisfying. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The spa was lovely where we enjoyed the pool and sauna. Would recommend to others who consider staying in York. The hotel is perfectly situated in centre of York.
