My wife and I recently stayed at the hotel for two nights and it was a fantastic experience throughout. Emma was the perfect host; the room was immaculate, spacious and extremely comfortable. The hotel is perfectly situated and is only a short walk from the Minster and city centre. The breakfast was outstanding and the staff went out of their... More

Stayed for a couple of nights at this lovely and friendly hotel when visiting York for the very first time (coinciding with my birthday!) Lovely little room and just a ten minute walk from the town centre- which is just perfect as we wouldn't want to stay right in the middle anyway. The staff were just excellent- friendly, knowledgeable and... More

Found The Groves on the net travelling between Scotland and Cambridge. Great place to stay with the convenience of only being a 15 mins walk to York city centre and attractions. Off-street guest parking was a huge bonus. Very comfortable room, friendly service and very good breakfast cooked to your liking. Would certainly stay here again if visiting York in... More

Firstly, the photos on here do not do the hotel justice! My partner and I stayed in the Bootham Suite which was amazing. It was much larger than expected and very comfortable. The staff were all friendly and pleasant, with Edward being particularly helpful! The only small issue we had with the toilet flush was resolved quickly and efficiently. The... More

We were very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. It was very clean, the staff were very helpful. The bathroom was out of this world, it had both bath and a full size shower, not the normal square box you have difficulty in getting into. The breakfast was part self service, with the cooked breakfast cooked to order. All in all... More

Very pleased with our stay at this hotel. Good room and facilities, staff very helpful and affable, and an excellent cooked breakfast included. Easily walkable to city centre. Would most definitely stay here again.

Have stayed in Bootham area before on my visits to York. First time at this hotel. It was situated in a quiet cul de sac 5/10 minutes walk to centre. We were in main building. Double rooms were spacious and really clean. Tea/ coffee facilities with a note if further requirements ie fruit teas etc can be requested from reception.... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this gem near Bootham Bar. Absolutely AI in every way. Last time we were in the main building, but this time we were in a lovely, specious family room in the annex. I can't really add to the comments I made in March 2012. The staff, many of whom I recognised... More

We were delighted to read your review and most especially enjoyed your comments regarding a recent guest using the review process to give us an unwarranted browbeating !! Thanks for noticing the little extras too - yes the bacon is local - it costs more but it is worth it and keeps our farmers farming! It is very satisfying to... More

We have just returned from a weekend in this lovely hotel we stayed in the Bootham Suite which was superb. Staff very friendly and helpful, Short walk (about 10 mins) into the city which was very pleasant to walk. Short cut to the station / train museum. Breakfast excellent. Situated in a very quiet cul-de-sac in a pleasant area. Would... More

An excellent base to explore the city. We were greeted by friendly staff who persisted in being considerate through out our stay. We were roomed in the annex to which I was abit apprehensive but as soon as we saw our room we could not believe how spacious and homely it was! The rest of the hotel was to a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Personal summary by the owner: The Groves provides first class bed and breakfast accommodation in a pleasant tranquil setting just minutes on foot to the historic city centre. Rooms & bathrooms come in all shapes and sizes - you pay for what you get - yet we are proudly competitive price wise. If you are staying for 3 or more nights or travelling long haul, we highly recommend, subject to budget, taking a large room if available. You will have a clean en-suite room, comfortable bed, a complimentary refreshment tray, and a hearty Yorkshire breakfast. We provide a polite unpretentious helpful service in a 'non-chain' quirky charming environment. We are owner operated and not complacent realising your free time is valuable to you and us. The Groves is unsuitable for groups wanting to party excessively. Other groups contact us for further information. Free parking until checkout. Wifi(that generally has a good signal) flat fee of £4. The accommodation is over 2 floors - no lift. We have ground floor accessible rooms by request. Room fans but no air conditioning.
