“80th Birthday Celebrations”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

We booked our parents in to Gray's Court as part of our mother's 80th birthday celebrations. The owners and staff were extremely helpful and attentive making the stay a great success. There is a family connection to the original owners of Gray's Court going back to the 18th century. For our mother the hotel brings back strong childhood memories and their are still historical touches such as the memorial to the Grays who died in the First world War and the stained glass family crests in some of the windows. As our mother says 'how good it is to be able to see such an historic house being used so that the public can experience the feel of a building which they wouldn't normally see'.

The hotel is located within about 100 yards of the Minsters grounds, a superb location for all tourist attractions, the hotel itself is situated at the end of a courtyard, and to be fair is not the easiest place to find the first time, on arrival we were welcomed and shown to our room with the offer of a tea/coffee. The room itself was comfortable with all the amenities normally found in hotel chains (except Tea/Coffee). Breakfast was served in one of the rooms on the first floor and was superb, cereal, fresh fruit, juice etc. and breakfast cooked to order, my wife had pancakes, syrup and bacon, it looked lovely. The service was prompt, friendly and well, just good! I can thoroughly recommend this hotel as a base for visiting York, or even just for a nice place to stay away from home.
