Tried to book a table for 6 at their Xmas Black Tie Dinner on 9th December 2016 I was told there were spaces - but tables were shared with other guests NOT 5 star treatment in my view - more like herding people onto tables like cattle I will book to go to better location that can offer a simple...

I'm struggling to write a review. Simply the best Hotel. Stopped on Saturday night for my wife's birthday and spoilt rotten. Upgraded to the Penthouse suite which was very special. But the thing which makes this hotel is the genuine Yorkshire welcome from all the staff. Particularly Wayne's on arrival was great. Food in Hudsons restaurant divine, massage in the... More

My wife booked this hotel for an overnight stay for my 25th Birthday. I must say, first impressions mean everything to us, we were blown away on how beautiful this hotel is. What really stood out for me was that we were greeted by a gentleman called Wayne, he asked if we had a reservation at the hotel and our... More

We spent Friday night at the Grand for our 31st anniversary. The hotel were aware of the anniversary and kindly upgraded our room and left a card and ballon for us. A great gesture. The room was on the first floor directly over the main entrance to the hotel and with views of the ancient city walls. It was a... More

We were greeted by an excellent doorman, who took our bags and arranged for the car to be parked. There are a few parking spots outside the hotel and lots more at the nearby NCP and both cost £25 per night, which I had no problem with, as it was a good service. The hotel is located in a nice...

My partner and I stayed here this week and found the hotel and the staff absolutely excellent. Every member of staff we encountered during our our measly one night stay were very polite and nothing was too much trouble for them - very professional. As it was our anniversary they kindly provided a couple of glasses of champagne upon arrival... More

What lovely, spacious, immaculate rooms! All the amenities included daily biscuits and complimentary bottled water. The location was excellent, just a short walk from the train station and also close to most other historic sites in York. Very reasonably priced, as well. I would move in tomorrow if I could!

I recently spent four nights at this hotel with my wife on a long weekend getaway to York. We loved everything about The Grand. It's location is great, just a hundred yards or so from the train station, and easy walking distance to the centre of York. The hotel is situated in a beautiful old railway building, but the interiors... More
