We spent 2 nights in this hotel in Jan 2015. A family of 2 adults and 3 children (ages 14-7). We booked two rooms- one was in the main house (room for 2 with beautiful old bed) and the other was in an annex at the back of the property, past the parking lot (3 beds). Both rooms were clean,... More

We have just returned from a fabulous weekend break in York staying at the super Groves B&B/Guesthouse. Excellent service from all staff (check-in, breakfast, check-out) and excellent choice and quality at breakfast. The room was great (in the separate building across the carpark) - large and comfortable with everything we needed. Even had a lovely roll-top bath for a nice... More

Stayed for one night, found all the staff extremely friendly, the room was great and the breakfast was perfect. Only a ten minute walk (maximum) from the Minster. No complaints at all! Thanks very much.

Nice B&B, delicious breakfast but average service, can sometimes hear noise from the outside (corridor). Not a very-satisfying location as well, a 20-min walk from centre, pretty quiet at night to walk to the hotel which is not good for residents withourt cars/ single-travellers. Old bed.

Sorry to hear we did not live up to your expectations but glad nevertheless you enjoyed your cooked breakfasts with us. We are generally a 10 minute walk (or 0.6 miles) from York minster and the city centre at an average pace, providing excellent value accommodation in York and FREE on-site parking (only for those booking directly).

My girlfriend and I stayed at The Groves for one night on our way back from a trip to Scotland. The hotel was easy to find, very welcoming and nice and close to the centre of town. As an added bonus we were even put in a family suite. Only a couple of points that I'd mention: our bathroom was... More

Exceeded my expectations of a B&B. Very impressed with the room. (Stayed in room 25) Good value for money, and a great breakfast. Parking on site and only a 10 minute walk to the shops. Parking can be extended on the day of departure which is chargeable (however it's cheaper than parking in the centre car parks) Would recommend!

Parking on-site is only free when you book your stay direct with us with the option to extend beyond check-out so you can enjoy a full day in York if desired. We hope... More

We stayed overnight at the Groves just before Christmas and chose it because of the free parking, a rarity in York. Although we arrived earlier than check in time, our room was ready for us and was situated in the building behind the main house. We had a large bedroom with an even larger bathroom with a fabulous bath which... More
