One of the friendliest places I've ever stayed at. The staff, from check in through breakfast to check out never stopped smiling and it felt very genuine. Stayed in room 25 with four poster bed, extremely comfortable. Cleanliness was exceptional. Location is described as 10 min walk to Minster and is very accurate, the walk is very easy and flat....

Made a very late booking, and stayed fro one night. We were welcomed warmly, and after arriving early, (just before noon), we took a 15 minute walk into York centre, and had a lovely day. We checked into our room which was very comfortable. The shower room was large, and the shower its' self was excellent. We enjoyed a nightcap... More

We stopped at York on our way north to Scotland, and enjoyed a pleasant night at The Groves. The man who checked us in was very friendly and gave us several recommendations of reasonably priced places to eat. Our group had two rooms: a double and a triple. Both were quiet, comfortable and welcoming. Our breakfast was hearty and delicious,... More

We booked late for a one night stay on a Sunday night in early October. We had the same room as before, number 20, which is compact but represents good value. The bed is most comfortable but takes up most of the room. The bathroom is much larger with a very nice shower. The hotel is at the end of... More

Warmly greeted by Emma who gave us car parking as we arrived early and helpfully booked a restaurant for us. Everything they said in their welcome was accurate and fair. We can see they are working on upgrading this "Faded Lady" and good luck to them. The room itself was adequate, but as they say most positively themselves "If you... More

We were given a nice spacious room with a modern bathroom. The furniture is either a little dated or 'country style', depending on your perspective. Either way, the room was spotless and comfortable. A great breakfast is served up every morning by very attentive staff who probably wish management would buy them nicer uniforms. Overall the service was top notch.... More
