I found the hotel to be excellent and the staff friendly and efficient. I wish I had found this hotel sooner. The lighting in the rooms was especially noticeable as nearly all modern hotel rooms have very limited overall room lighting. The bathrooms were also good - although I think the TV in there is a little OTT! Good location for leisure travellors to York as well - near to Minster etc.

Lack of Sky Sports is a minus - as a business traveller this is something I like. Two different restaurants to cover various tastes.

Dear Guest

Thank you for expressing your views on TripAdvisor. I am delighted to learn that you enjoyed your stay with us.

I am sorry for the lack of the sports channel. From a recent market research we carried out, in general guests’ request for such service was not a decision maker and considering the price tag attached to subscribe to such channels it would make the bedroom tariff SKY high.

Once again thank you and hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you again to The Grange in the not too distant future.

Yours

Stayed the first night of our recent weekend trip to York. The car park was full upon arrival however a staff member managed to aquire a spot for me. Once inside First impressions were very good. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpfull. We stayed in room 4 ( i think ) which is on the ground floor near reception. A large extremely comfortable 4 poster bed awaited us. The bathroom was clean and the shower was excellent. There was however a light draft from the windows however this was soon sorted by closing the wooden shutters. We ate at the bar in the cellar and i opted for a mixed grill. Both the food and the service here were very good. We both had an excellent nights sleep and were up early the next day ready for sightseeing. The breakfast was delivered fairly quickly, however i was slightly disappointed that the toast was cold and the egg slightly underdone. I got the impression the kitchen was a bit busy so I forgave them fot that. Still, feeling a bit on the hungry side, I was able to eat it..
Overall we had a very pleasant stay at the Grange and I would certainly recommend staying there.

Dear Guest

I am delighted to learn that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for expressing the same on TripAdvisor. I am sorry to hear that the service at breakfast was slow, regrettably that is the consequence we have to accept for cooking a fresh breakfast instead of buffet style serve it, but hey why the rush when you are on a leisure break. From your comments it sounded as if you appreciated its freshness and quality.

I hope we will have the pleasure of accommodating you when you visit this vibrant city again.

First of all we would like to thank the Grange for another wonderful stay at there fabulous hotel. We have just returned from yet another short break at the Grange Hotel in York. This hotel deserves every one of its stars plus more. We have returned to this hotel every January for a number of years now and the hotel and its staff just excel themselves every year. The room we received was lovely but we did ask to be changed as we prefer the room with a walk in shower and this was no problem for the staff this was done with no fuss or unpleasantness. There are quite a number of hotels who should take notes from the Grange on customer service and standards the food is excellent and the hotel is elegant warm and friendly. The entire staff at this hotel cannot be praised highly enough for their effiiciency and willingness to please. The owners/management should be really pleased with themselves and proud for having such fabulous staff working for them. Once again thank you all for such a wonderful experience.

We stayed for a night and had the best nights sleep in a hotel ever. The staff very very friendly and helpful. The food was great and the whole atmosphere was very informal but still of a great standard without being too stuffy.

This is are first visit to York and the Grange, also our first Christmas away in a hotel. York is a wonderful City, it has many and varied shops (we arrived in time to shop) very interesting to explore. It is an ancient city with the beautiful Minster which the hotel laid on a guided tour, the manager (George Briffa) accompanied us and pandered to all whims.
The hotel provided a wonderful service, the staff went out of their way to ensure we had a Christmas to remember. The room we stayed in has a magnificent four poster bed (very comfortable), it had everything we needed, the en-suite was delightful.
We could not find fault, thanks to George and all his wonderful staff.
