We stayed for 2 nights in The Groves, which is situated about 10 minutes from the centre of York. It is an old Georgian house, beautiful architecture and the room was clean and seemed to have been fairly recently been refurbished. The parking is free, as is the internet and the breakfast is very good. I would say that the... More

The Groves was a great place to stay. Parking on site and a short stroll into the center of York. The bedroom was lovely, comfy bed and a big walk in shower. The breakfast was great continental or full English with plenty of coffee. All the staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. With it being situated... More

Thank you for your comments and we are all very pleased you had an excellent stay. As noted we are situated on a very quiet cul-de-sac 10 minutes walk from York minster with FREE on-site parking. Also a great tip there with regards to mobility. We have ground floor rooms available plus one wheelchair accessible ramp access room with roll... More

I booked The Groves after reading all the rave reviews and I can honestly say that we were not disappointed. It's only 10 minutes walk to the city centre and all the main attractions but also very quiet down a leafy residential road. As soon as we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome and shown to our room,... More

Found this place on here, and thought it sounded good. Well its lovely, down a leafy side street, great location for a wander to the city. About 10min and you'll be stood at York Minster. A 20min walk across to train museum. I stayed in the cottage which is separate from the main hotel, basically behind and across the car... More

We spent two nights at The Groves and it was a great place to stay for a weekend. The Groves is situated in a quiet road only a ten minute walk from the city centre and we really liked its character and charm. We visited the Minster, walked the city walls and went on a ghost walk, which was great... More

We were given The Bootham Suite in which to stay. This was very spacious, well appointed and with a large comfortable bed. The location is perfect for The Minster and other attractions in central York. St. Peter's Grove is a quiet cul-de-sac, no traffic noise (this compares favourably with other more prominent hotels.) Breakfast was traditional but of good quality.... More

Great location (10 mins walk to York Minster and the walls). Great breakfast (a super fresh fruit salad in the continental breakfast - I counted at least 10 different fruit!). Friendly and helpful staff. Ample sized shower. Rooms we're clean, although decor slightly dated, but this did not detract from the stay! Would definitely revisit.

The Groves is a little gem of a place. We were located in the cottage, outside of the main hotel but it was all clean and very quiet. The staff were all extremely polite and the breakfast was very nice. The location is ideally suited for a quick walk into the city of York and the wifi speed puts all... More

Hotel as said before iclose to Minster and set in a quiet area. It has a courtyard at the back near the car park which would be a nice area to relax in good weather.

A lovely old house with lots of period features. Our room (21) was comfortable & despite being directly over Reception there was little noise. The room above had creaking floorboards & early risers staying in it but again we weren't disturbed too much. The staff are excellent, friendly & efficient. Breakfasts were superb, freshly cooked & good portions. I particularly... More
