it was my boyfriends birthday so we decided to stay here for a night. Check in is at 3, but we got to York for 2, so wondered if we could check in early. The receptionist was lovely, and let us check in early, even though our room wasn't ready yet. She gave us a welcome letter in an envelope... More

Just spent a fantastic weekend in York staying at the Cedar Court Grand which was the perfect place to stay. From the moment we arrived the staff were fantastic and the concierge's were friendly and very knowledgeable about York, helping us to make the most of our stay. One of them even took time to provide a tourist map and... More

Bed turned down each night, tv sound or music in bathroom, bottled water and slippers by the bed. Staff very friendly and obliging. Lovely food. Would not stay anywhere... More

After reading trip advisor reviews on this hotel we had high expectations, we were not disappointed. We arrived at 12 noon and our upgraded room was ready, a deluxe room that was huge with 2 bathrooms and everything you would wish for on hand. The hotel is recently converted and very impressive indeed, original features retained and sympathetically restored. It... More

Booked an executive king room for one night (11/8/13) to celebrate my wife's birthday . Warm and helpful greeting on arrival . . glad to find that we could store our bags because we arrived before our room was ready . Went out in York for lunch and returned at half 3 to be told our room still wasn't ready... More

When arriving at The Cedar Court Grand Hotel and Spa you are greeted by a uniformed doorman and two bell-boys. Your luggage is immediately whisked away and a valet appears to park your car while the concierge accompanies you to the front desk. The formalities are quickly and expediently performed before you are escorted to your room with a detailed... More
