This was my second visit to the Grand and I am already looking forward to returning. The service is superb from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. A special mention must go to the concierge desk who are incredibly efficient, polite and friendly. I would also like to pay tribute to the front desk, and most especially...

Myself and my partner visited the Grand as part of my 21st birthday celebrations. From the second that we arrived at The Grand, I was blown away. We were greeted outside by a very friendly gentleman who took our bags and showed us to the reception. Following a speedy check in process, we were escorted to our room whilst being...

Fantastic rooms, building and atmosphere. Spa is small but very well done. Breakfast is very good but dinner menu was a let down. York, one of the finest cities in England, has been under serviced by top class hotels for too long. This is hopefully changing but The Grand is so far ahead only the pricing will decide if it...

This is a lovely hotel, with great facilities and fantastic service. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable, with good room and maid service. It has a lovely bar area with quieter whisky lounge which has an extensive selection of whiskeys. It's what you'd expect from a five star hotel. The only one thing that let it down in...

We stayed overnight this week and it was excellent. We were met at the door and the car taken from us to be securely stored. We checked in and went to the whiskey room and had coffees. We were shown to our room, it was lovely and big, the only downfall was that there is building work at the hotel...

Our stay at the Grand was absolutely "grand". We felt pampered the entire time we were there. Our room was clean and comfortable and beautiful. It was so much fun to explore the city by day and then relax at the hotel in the evening.

Brought my partner here for a surprise trip away and it was the best decision I could have made. The staff are all friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room was just breath taking with a view of the ruins across the road, it was spacious, the bed was beautifully presented and they even left us some complimentary chocolates to celebrate...
