The Groves is in a great location. Easy walking distance into the city but in a very peaceful road. My room was on the 2nd floor reached by a spiral staircase. As some previous reviewers have said - the bathroom in my single room was small - but most importantly was spotlessly clean and I found it fine. Plenty of... More

The Groves is a nice b&b, 10 minutes walk from the Minster side of York. Staff were friendly and the breakfast excellent. Only "complaint" would be the sound proofing. We were in room 21, at the top of the stairs from reception. We could hear everything as though we were in the same room. That being said, at night the... More

Convenient location close to town centre, friendly staff, very good breakfast but beware small room, even smaller bathroom and disappointingly you have to pay for parking !! plus rates increase dramatically if a race event is on.

The location is excellent. York is heavily congested with car traffic during peak hours so to be able to leave the car in the car park practically untouched for three days and walk everywhere was a treat. Ten minutes walk from the hotel to York Cathedral. The interior decor is a bit drab but don't be fooled by the uninspiring... More

The hotel is on a tree-lined street in a fancy neighborhood a short walk from the Minster. There is a country feel with knotty pine furniture and functional bathrooms, nothing overly fancy. The breakfast is decent, and the help was outstanding when my wife became ill. Only one reservation. Our room was on the second floor of the annex. While... More

Just returned from a lovely weekend in York at The Groves. What a lovely place. The atmosphere was perfect, the staff were friendly, the breakfast was lovely (although a little small) and the rooms quirky. We were in an attic bedroom and it was a bit hot and stuffy with no view as the window was high up, if I... More

We stayed five nights at the Groves in mid- May. The hotel is a lovely place to stay, at the end of a quiet cul de sac but still close to the centre of York.
