We were so impressed on our first visit we booked up again to as we planned a weeks visit to York. The service, and excellent food was spot on. The Groves is just off the town centre and is ideal for anyone wanting to explore York..... and you have off road car parking. We will be back Thanks

All I can add to what's already been said about this fantastic guest house is that it runs like clockwork. The service at breakfast is quick and charming, the food tasty, our room was large and pretty and the bed was comfortable. Room 25 was very quiet at all times. The walk into the city is ten minutes if you... More

A quiet friendly hotel in a very good location. However, not without it's challenges. We were perhaps unfortunate in that I understand we occupied the smallest room in the hotel. The ensuite was very small and the shower had a very poor flow. That said we would return again as the friendly staff and excellent breakfast went a long way... More

The best welcome we have ever received at an Hotel. It was a comfortable , welcoming establishment topped off by an excellent breakfast service. The cooked breakfast was almost surpassed by the fruit and yoghourt of the continental offer. Gluten free bread / toast, cereal , and sausages were readily available.
