My partner and I stayed at the Grove Oct 26-28. We were very happy with the hotel. To be honest, Im am usually quite critical about hotels. However, from the moment we checked in at the Grove, I knew we'd made a great choice. The hotel is located a very convenient 10 minute walk from the City/Minster. Safe car parking... More

This guest house is lovely. The decor is tasteful and rooms are spacious. Staff were all friendly and helpful and made us welcome from the minute we set foot in the door. Emma in particular delivered efficient service and has a great sense of humour. Our group consisted of five "mature" ladies and we were all full of praise for... More

This was a little gem ! Great location , lovely room , staff most helpful. I stayed in a much more expensive place in Suffolk last weekend which won a tv award for B&b places . This would have won hands down . Loved the attention to detail , reasonable costs and a thoroughly lovely stay

The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Bed was comfortable and all was clean and tidy. The biggest plus was that it is so Disabled friendly, no steps all level, ramp to the entrance etc. Dedicated parking for disabled. All very thoughtful. The only real minus was a smell of damp in the en-suite. The base of the shower unit... More

We are all pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. A good point to note regarding reduced mobility access. We have no lift here but ground floor rooms are available upon request and we do have one fully accessible wheelchair access room with a roll in shower. It is always best to call us to book these rooms as we... More

Stayed two nights attending a weekend seminar at the nearby York Sports Club. Was in the annexe, the room was comfortable and well appointed, but a little on the small side and there was nowhere to put one's case down. Breakfasts were good and staff very welcoming and helpful. It is within c10minutes walk to the city centre and has... More

Selected this hotel after reading previous Trip Advisor comments and it lived up to it's billing. Staff very friendly and efficient, bedroom clean and bathroom lovely. Free parking and Wii a bonus. Breakfast was good and the only very slight niggle was that it seemed a bit further from the centre than advertised. Definitely would come back and would recommend... More

Really glad to hear you had a great stay with us and we lived up to your high expectations. Great satisfaction all round. As a general guide we are located 0.6 miles/900m from the steps of York minster. We generally advise this takes around 10 minutes. Of course some may walk quicker than this whilst others a little slower. Thank... More

We stayed in "The Cottage", a building behind the main hotel. The rooms are characterful as opposed to modern and 'sterile', similar to a typical guest room at a house. The room had an ensuite shower room which was clean, the ensuite also had good quality shampoo and shower gel - a nice touch considering the very reasonable prices. Breakfast... More

I would highly recommend The Groves. Spent three nights in October and had a fabulous weekend. The accommodation was excellent - spotlessly clean room, excellent breakfasts and very helpful staff. Within a ten minute easy walk of the Minster this is the place to stay.

Originally I was a bit disappointed we couldn't get into one of the "haunted" B&B/Inns in York, however this feeling quickly changed, as we were really pleased with our stay at The Groves. Just outside the main city center, it is on a quiet street that has more of a nice neighborhood feel, only a 10-15 minute walk into town... More
