We stayed here for two nights. The concierge greeted us outside the hotel & took our car to a nearby car park. This was very convenient and competitively priced with local car parks. All the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to help. The hotel is a fantastic conversion of former railway offices with spacious bedrooms and tasteful decor... More

Enjoyed a Friday to Sunday stay with a friend to celebrate a special birthday. We arrived in York earlier than expected but this was no problem, we used the valet parking and the hotel kept our luggage until our room was ready. They sent a text message as the room was available earlier than the scheduled 3pm. The room was... More

This hotel was fantastic. The service as soon as you walk in the door is great. Valet parking and help to your room with bags from cheeky and friendly front of house guy Sam is just what you need after a long journey - that guy runs rings round the usual stuffy sort you get in some other hotels.

An excellent city centre hotel with great staff, great rooms and great food. The hotel is first class in every way from the "valet parking" welcome, to the very gracious check out staff, nothing was too much trouble for the superbly trained and altogether pleasant members of staff that we came into contact with. It was an altogether enjoyable stay.... More

My sister and I visited The Grand today as a nice start to the summer holidays and we enjoyed one of the best afternoon teas I have ever had (and I have tried quite a few over the years!) The food was delicious, the service impeccable and the surroundings were absolutely lovely. I would definitely recommend afternoon tea here as... More

Our fourth time at Cedar Court and it didn't disappoint. We stayed a week and had a wonderful time. I loved the Molton Brown bathroom products ....heavenly smell. The little touches like lip balm and weather reports were a nice gesture. I want to thank the receptionist staff as they were so friendly and helpful. Staff through out the hotel... More
