4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

This hotel is only a few minutes walk from the Minster and centre of town. The rooms are small but cosy. Dining room has two rosettes and the food was delicious, but the black tables without cloths were not appetising, as they are getting worn and look grubby even though they were clean. Staff is friendly, foreign and eager to... More

Our wedding was a fantastic day to remember and the staff at the Grange were helpful from start to finish in helping us to achieve this. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone planning an intimate wedding reception in York. Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate our perfect day!

This is a hotel that's seen better days. The exterior and common rooms were beautiful a few years ago, but showing some wear and tear. But worse was our room, which was really tired - stains on all three chairs, saggy bed, bland decor. Bathroom had cracked tile floor and stains on the grout. We went because Karen Brown recommended... More

Paid £253 for two night B&B so expected a lot more than we got. Room 9 is a small room on the ground floor at the front of the hotel, I couldn't get to the mirror to get ready as a chair was wedged between the bed and the wall, we had 2ft space at the end of the bed,... More

Hotel was very nice, the staff and the food were excellent. We stayed in Ebor room which was nicely decorated but with very dark wallpaper and paint, some of the decor was a little tired but everywhere was very clean. Overall very good.

Thank you for your recent review and lovely comments regarding the food at The Grange; I shall pass them onto our chef. Our rooms are all individually styled and vary greatly. Whilst we are about to undergo some refurbishment I can't guarantee that all rooms will be light and airy. I agree, The Ebor is quite a masculine room and... More

It's good to read that this property will be subject to refurbishment in the near future. It's a 10-minute walk from a city gate and it has great "bones" (as they say), but it is looking shabby. I must also agree with another reviewer in that it's overpriced in its current condition. I wanted to love The Grange. I just... More

The Grange remains among my favorites and it continues to provide a high standard of room and service. The staff are excellent - I wish they were provided with name badges so that I could pick them out here. We only got to know "Davy" who is a real asset to any business - polite, helpful and with a wide... More
