I've stayed in this place for work regularly since it opened. It seems that the rate I use has been changed to exclude breakfast. Huge shame that that wasn't mentioned when we checked in: being left £60 out of pocket was an unpleasant surprise, and the front desk staff weren't in the least bothered. The hotel's lovely. But left with... More

Complimentary car parking was the order of the day. We were met with suspicion! Obviously the car park has been abused in the past...not a nice start to the break but all is forgiven as quite understandable! At least the few car parking spaces are protected! We arrived early well before check in time which wasn't available but guaranteed by... More

We had a wonderful afternoon celebrating mums birthday! We were met at the door and as mum is disabled they let us park outside. She was then walked in on the arm of a wonderful doorman who took us to the restaurant. We had an amazing afternoon tea, very different tastes from the normal run of the mill and my... More

Well run hotel in a prime location in York. Clean and serviceable rooms and attentive staff. Lovely small Spa facilities too. Valet parking is at an extra cost of £25. It's a nice touch but next time we would park car round the corner ourselves for a fraction of the price. Breakfast was tasty, only negative was that the tables... More

We had a 2 night stay at this place in March and the whole experience was excellent, relaxing and simply enjoyable. Would recommend the restaurant for afternoon tea - splendid. We will be back The service at all times was first class and they cared about their customers which many places don't these days

My wife and i have been here before and the service, friendliness of staff etc have been fantastic. Enjoyed the spa, sauna/steam room/jacuzzi and pool and the hudson restaurant all of which are recommended. My only gripe not with the hotel, staff or service is those people who bring very young annoying kids here who don't like the word "no"... More

My friend and I spent 2 nights at the hotel and we can't praise the whole experience highly enough. We had a wonderful welcome and service from the concierges, reception and restaurant staff. The Spa was a joy. We both loved our stay in York and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and hopefully we will visit it again.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights from the 23rd to 26th August and it really does justice to its name. The service at all times was excellent, food was good and the bedrooms really are GRAND. The hotel position is great and the hotel staff are friendly and provide a excellent level of service at all times. It... More
