We have now visited the Hotel four times, we have just stayed again for two nights & had a wonderful time, the staff give First Class Service in all areas of the Hotel.
We also had a lovely meal in the Grill Room Restaurant , having just been on the Queen Mary Ship at Christmas & dinning in the Queens Grill Restaurant each evening we would like to say we enjoyed the food in your Hotel far better !!

We stayed at this beautiful hotel in January. All the staff were very professional and welcoming. We were upgraded to a suite and were treated so well. We would certainly recommend this hotel and would definitely go back there if we were up in York again. The best hotel we have stayed in by far.

Room Tip: All rooms are extremely good, the higher floors have less noise.

Absolutely fabulous - just returned from a night's stay with two friends and can't wait to go back. We were made to feel truly welcome from going through their doors to leaving this afternoon. Nothing was too much trouble. The classic room was large and very comfortable and very well equipped - robe, slippers, luxury toiletries etc. We ate in the Grill Room and the food was to die for. Can't rate this hotel highly enough.

After staying two nights at the Cedar hotel and spa we have had a truly relaxing stay. Spa & pool area never busy (Weds & Thurs) staff great and the room lovely. Location ideal if you want to see the sights of York.

I recently stayed here with my soon to be wife and mother in law as a late Christmas present.
It was our first time in a five star hotel and the overall experience was excellent. The staff are incredibly helpful and go out of their way to make you feel at home, particularly Jordi the concierge who deserves special praise. The rooms are large and well decorated and the beds are big enough to lose yourself in. Even the hotel was reasonably busy, there was very little noise in the corridors and communal areas, possibly due to the very thick carpet ! The building itself is a lovely old railway building just opposite York station and has been converted very elegantly. The one downside was the food which wasn;t the best, we expected more of a five star establishment, however, the excitement of having Stephen Hawking at the next table to us at dinner more than made up for this, although maybe we wouldn;t have been so forgiving without that major distraction !

The Cedar Court in York is a truly fantastic hotel. Their service is impeccable, from the valet service to their room service. I booked a classic room which was extremely large and comfortable.

The spa facilities were great, the pool was a perfect size and very warm, and the jacuzzi/sauna/steam room was excellent. Location was ideal, just before the bridge into town, in short walking distance from the Minster and shops. The bar and restaurant are lovely and stocked with fantastic food and drink.

A few VERY minor quibbles - the pillows weren't particularly great - I actually had a horrific night's sleep due to this, coupled with an extremely annoying set of flashing lights from the modems/routers which were behind the TV set. I had to drape a towel over them to block them out.

It wasn't cheap, but if you want the best you have to pay for it. It was a brilliant experience and would thoroughly recommend staying here to anyone.
