The hotel is really hitting all the right notes. Rooms immaculate, quiet and very comfortable. Staff are all very friendly and helpful. Parking is included in price and hotel is a short walk from centre of York. Breakfast was excellent with real sausages and bacon! in a very pleasant setting. When you look at the price it is really amazing... More

I stayed here for three nights and though our room was next to the stairs we never heard anyone arrive or leave. It was a lovely hotel with friendly staff who were always happy to help. The breakfasts were delicious and filling for the day. The fact that it had parking and was within walking distance of the centre of... More

This hotel was selected following excellent reviews on trip Advisor as we required a centrally located hotel during a recent family visit to York. The hotel is based around a very large period house, located in a street of similar proportioned elegant buildings. The hotel has a range of room sizes in the main building and annex buildings and caters... More

We stayed 1 night in Feb at the Groves Hotel as a city break.

The Groves is a lovely hotel outside of the center of York. Everything functioned well (great wifi), and breakfast was good and varied. The service was top of the class, and we found all the warmth, friendliness and personality one normally associates with a really good B&B, but only in a hotel setting. By not living right in the center... More

Our only regret was that we could only stay one night. Lovely, cosy room with a fabulous bathroom. Spotlessly clean. Friendly staff. Several breakfast options rather that just cooked or continental which was great. We would definitely stay here again.

Very easy to book, very warm welcome when we arrived. And it's just 10 to 12 minutes walk from the city centre! The bedroom and bathroom were extremely clean and spacious. A wee bit too hot in the room for my liking though... :-) Lots of choice for breakfast and very tasty food and in good proportion. For sure if... More
