Stayed here for two nights with two friends in a triple room in the annex for a pre-Christmas break. The room was well equipped, warm, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent on both days with a good choice, the staff friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Parking on site and a ten minute walk into the town centre is an... More

Our one night stay this week was too short! Excellent service, very good location and the real bonus in York of car parking. The Groves is very comfortable with friendly staff and - as mentioned in so many reviews - a delicious breakfast. The bar is a cosy place to return to in the evening. We are really looking forward...

Came for a pre-Christmas weekend break with friends to York as we try different places every year. York is absolutely beautiful blowing our last Canterbury trip totally out of the water! What a gorgeous friendly City York is! The Groves is lovely, no questions asked! The staff are all absolutely fantastic and friendly. The hotel is in a nice quiet... More

Very pleasing to read your comments here. Thank you for recommending us. We try not to be a corporate 'magnolia box' place offering something a little different just a short walk from the minster with on-site parking, cooked to order breakfasts and local, knowledgeable staff. Note all our double rooms do have standard sized beds (4'6'') with our four poster... More

Have stayed here before for a weekend just me and the good lady. Brought our daughter (9 y/old) for a second visit this time. Things have been kept the same. Excellent owner & staff. Had a family room which was in the main building. Our daughter loved it all. The breakfast cannot be faulted, and service not OTT, but very... More

This is my third or forth stay in this hotel and it never disappoints. The hotel is close to the city centre (10 minute straight walk) and has parking-a bonus. Although I booked a single room I was offered (no extra cost) a large family room in the annex-very comfortable. Staff very helpful and friendly and the breakfasts good. My... More

We've stayed here a couple of times now, most recently in November & would happily recommend this hotel. Free parking, close enough for a nice walk into York, but good location to access roads to explore outside York itself, great breakfasts & lovely rooms. We will be back again!
