“Excellent, quaint hotel in great location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Me and my husband celebrated his birthday at The Grange on 9th February.
We stayed in room number 10 which was tastefully decorated, very clean with a very comfortable bed.

The hotel provided us with complimentary champagne and chocs as we were celebrating a special occasion. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was high quality and served hot.

The hotel is about a ten min gentle stroll to the Minster and shops, bars etc. The hotel is very quaint. The main restaurant has fairy lights dotted around which I love. The Grange has character rather than being a modern contemporary hotel which I personally prefer.

All in all a wonderful stay and we would definitely return!

A very pleasant hotel about fifteen minutes walk from the Minster. Comfy lounge and bedroom, which was clean and quiet (overlooking car park). Excellent brasserie (the "American Grill" ) where I had a really great plate of ribs. Shame there weren't more people there, very quiet for nine on a Friday evening. I would try the restaurant upstairs next time. The breakfast was good and varied. The only big let down was wifi - I tried to access it unsuccessfully on iPad, iPhone and a PC - as I was there for business this was a real let down, though the staff - very friendly and helpful - did their best to solve the problem. Apart from that - and I will check it's working if I go again - I would definitely visit the Grange again for a business or pleasure trip to York.

A short taxi ride from the station took us to this charming hotel where we were welcomed by the friendly staff. David the porter immediately realised we had a problem. My sister found the stairs difficult to climb and without asking she was immediately allocated a large beautifully decorated ground floor room. This type of thoughtful service continued whether we were dinning at breakfast or dinner , whether we were enjoying an evening cocktail at the bar or had asked for an additional newspaper in the morning. My room was very comfortable and the bed wonderfully soft and restful. The bathroom and shower recess was large,clean and easy to use. I declined to try and use the spar with a TV screen at the foot of the bath. A younger guest undoubtedly would be more adventurous. We really liked this hotel .

Room Tip: Tell the staff what you prefer. I feel confident they will do their best to accommodate you.

Unlike lots of over-specced, designed within an inch of their life boutique hotels, the Grange is the real thing. Comfortably elegant, friendly and welcoming. I had a perfectly relaxing one night stay. Room large and serene, staff lovely.

We have stayed at the grange three times over the same period between Christmas and new year. The same warm welcome greets us, staff are so friendly here, this makes for a stress free restful break. lovely room (worth an upgrade to superior). Location to shops and centre approx 7-10 min walk. Car park limited so may need to use imagination if you arrive later in the day. Ivy restaurant struggled a bit this year, large party held up starters, polite apology and wine offered. Happy to book again.

The food was excellent, the staff were helpful and efficient. Our hotel room was comfortable and spacious with one of the best walk-in showers! Great position for York Minster, only 15 minutes walk away, didn't need to use the car, so able to leave it in the hotel car park all weekend.

‘The Grange’ has aspirations and prices far above its ability to deliver. We had two meals, one poor, the other inedible. After two months of repeating the complaint we have still not had any apology. At £189 a night we expected better. The Grange managed to get my previous review taken down yet they still have no apologised to me.

Room Tip: Not bu the cleaner's station.
