Recently attend a wedding here. What an amazing venue to get married at. Situated on a tiny little cobbled road in the centre of York the entrance to the hotel which is very quaint hides the beauty of the interior and the very surprisingly large gardens at the back. The hotel is brimming with history which you can feel in... More

Stayed in this beautiful, old hotel for 2 nights. Situated in the centre of York, a stones throw from the York Minster. The staff were welcoming, although we got the feeling that they were understaffed. The room was lovely with a beautiful bed and two big windows, one facing the Minster so we were able to hear the bells. The... More

We visited Grays Court as a birthday treat for my partner and was very surprised by the beautiful surroundings and pleasant atmosphere. This hotel is filled with character and is presented to a very high standard. The staff are friendly and attentive, although sometimes you may have to go looking for them. The room itself (we stayed in Edwards) was... More

Stayed here for the first time - how did I not know about this place before?! Upon arrival I thought wow - breathtakingly atmospheric and beautifully styled, I bet the staff are inflated and a little fancy-pants hard work. How wrong I was. The staff were fantastic. This place is a little gem and smells of Jo Malone lime basil... More

So forget the comfy bed, disregard the superb location, ignore the attentive staff, don't consider the amazing building, turn a blind eye to the lovely furnishing, pretend the food isn't superb. And what are you left with? Only somewhere I'd be happy to go back to as often as I can get there. What an absolute joy - why can't... More

We had a two night stay at Grey's Court, staying with elderly parents and our daughters. The hotel is beautifully furnished throughout, with antique furniture and modern bathrooms. The food was excellent, and we were able to take advantage of the lovely gardens due to warm and sunny weather. The staff were overall very polite and helpful, especially the waiter... More

A beautiful building in a fantastic location. Beautiful gardens. Our room (Aislebie) pleasant with views of the courtyard and towards the Minster. Extremely peaceful for a city centre location. We slept with both windows open and the most noise was the dawn chorus! Could not connect to the wifi and please can we have hooks in the bathroom for robes... More

This lovely historic hotel is in a great location, close to York Minster and all the sights of York's historic area. We parked when we arrived on our first day and did not move the car until we checked out. The room was comfortable, the restaurant was good, and staff was awesome.

This is a small but beautifully and sympathetically designed hotel in a fantastic location right next to York Minster. Our room was a little on the small size but it was very tastefully decorated and since we only booked 2 days before it was more than adequate and extremely comfortable. All the staff were very helpful and did all they... More
