A return visit and nice to see standards had been maintained. Always a welcoming atmosphere and nice to see that the same staff recognise you from your last visit. I would recommend this B&B for anyone thinking of stopping in York

Lovely hotel, in easy walking distance of York minster. Staff are excellent and breakfast selection was extensive and all freshly prepared. Wife had the continental breakfast and said the fruit salad was fabulous. Hotel is well maintained and impeccably clean and tidy. Arrived to find that we'd been given an upgrade to the Botham suite. A large modern suite in... More

Really nice place, good service, nice rooms, adequate parking. We were two couples so we got to see two different rooms. We stayed on the top floor (our choice). There is no lift but I like to be high up. The room was very nice. However, if you have tender feet, the floor in the bathroom was the pebble floor... More

Stayed here recently for a few days during a trip to York. Hotel is ideally situated, about 10 mins wals from the city centre. Hotel is clean, rooms are great, staff are very friendly, breakfasts are excellent. Pefect for a stay if you are visiting York. It's our second time here and would definitely stay again. Highly recommended.

We really like The Groves in York and the staff are just marvelous, but there are a couple of niggly things now about this hotel which I will explain below. The room is good enough for the price and time of the year and the breakfast is simply wonderful. One of my gripes is that we booked through Ebookers, it... More

We were given a handicapped-access room, so it was very spacious. Staff was extremely helpful and open. Superb breakfast, lots of options. 10 minute walk to the Minster (don't try to drive it; the traffic is awful).

Such a pretty little place to stay. The staff are super friendly and the accommodation was splendid. Stayed in the cottage with another couple. Rooms in the cottage were fairly big with all the facilities. Breakfast was included including fully cooked or continental breakfast options. Accommodation was only a easy 10 minute walk from York.
