The Groves is a lovely red brick building outside the Bootham Bar in York, about 10-15 mins walk to the medieval city gate. The location is lovely - a quiet cul-de-sac in a leafy suburb. Away from the rowdiness of a weekend in York!! Our room was a double in a building to the rear of the main building, and... More

The staff is very hospitable and friendly. This small hotel is a lovely walk into town and located on a very quaint street. The jam selection at breakfast is to die for! The room we had was quite adequate and the towel warmers was much appreciated.

Had difficulty getting in to a hotel in York on the date wanted. So followed Tripadvisor - and glad I did. This a super place, friendly welcome, easy parking, spotlessly clean, lovely room, great breakfast, sensible cost... What more can I say? Lots. All good!

This is a small hotel and certainly the room we stayed in was quite cramped. However, the room was spotless and comfortable. The breakfast was superb. Plenty of choice and the hotel provided gluten free sausages and gluten free cereal. The staff were , without exception, totally friendly, efficient (had minor problem with loo roll holder, instantly fixed) and very... More

Nice stay for a quick jaunt around York - only there for one night but seemed a nice place and is really well located to the centre of York. Everything was clean but having to pay for parking is a little much - although still a heck of a lot cheaper than parking in York!

We stayed for one night at The Groves which is nicely situated near enough to York city centre to walk there but far enough away to not be bothered by rowdy folk.
