Location perfect for train arrivals. Staff really helpful. Spa beautiful. Our room was really nice, got a free upgrade. Would recommend this hotel without question. York, being quite a small city, was on our doorstep. Plenty to do, great museums and friendly pubs. Will return and definitely stay at The Grand

Nice hotel good transport connection to the city staff were excellent as is the service only problem we had was when we had tea and there was stale custard in side the milk jug other than that our stay was very enjoyable
Picked this hotel because of location and although it was a pleasant stay I think I could have gotten a similar room over the road at the travel lodge for a cheaper price.
Good points: location, clean room, quiet/high floor as requested, great shower, kettle with free mlk/tea/coffee and biscuits, free wifi (slow though), quick check in and room was ready early to put bags in
Bad points: expensive, small room, car parking NOT included, breakfast not included, bed small and uncomfortable (for me), didn't like the fact they take £30 out your bank INCASE of room damages that can take 10 days to go back in your bank
A very well placed hotel with all the sights of York within easy walking distance. The room was fine but standard rooms don't have a view of the river or Minster. I would have liked a bar of soap in the bathroom as well as the hand/shower gel provided. Also body lotion would have been appreciated.
I got a good late deal in economy room which was beautiful and comfortable. Reception staff were all outstanding including the guy who went on a late night hunt for tooth paste. The public rooms are country house grand but the scale is friendly .
Breakfast good value and lovely.
There is an amazing paint effect room imitating a tent atbthe races. Apparently it's going to go for more bedrooms. A real shame. Please don't!
Lovely room with good facilities. Very clean,nice bedding and decorations. Mini car very expensive ,complimentary tea and coffee.
Excellent location for York centre.
Lovely restaurant facilities . Had breakfast which was ok but not worth £16.95!
Room great but woken at 7am by noise above which went on all morning. Did complain on checkout to be told there was a young family above and they were sorry so cancelled my parking charge! That was fine but would have preferred not to be disturbed!
All in all would recommend
Once enclosed by ancient fortified walls, York offers a wealth of cultural and historical sites, including York Castle, the National Railway Museum, and York Minster, a Gothic cathedral in the city center. The Shambles is a pedestrian-friendly street dating back to mediaeval ages, where it housed butcher shops. Today the scene is less gruesome, with quaint boutiques and tea rooms lining the road.
