Had an enjoyable stay at the Cedar Court Grand Hotel & Spa over 17th & 18th November. York is obviously a very popular and exciting place and the central position of this hotel offers more than most of its class. The service is good and the spacious nature of the surrounds is beautifully decorated. The rooms are equipped very well and the Restrooms are excellent. The Car-Parking Valet service is smoothly operated and the Northern charm is always only a step away. Would recommend this Hotel.

My sister and I stayed for just one night for a shopping trip to York. Cedar Court is a lovely hotel and the staff were very helpful and we were made to feel very welcome. Our room was superb although a little dark. The breakfast was excellent. The location is excellent also. I would certainly recommend the hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for a girls weekend with my mum's 65th birthday. The staff were all very helpful and made us feel very special! The food and service in general was outstanding! The afternoon tea is a must do and our meal in the grill restaurant was wonderful and delicious! I would definately stay again and intend to take my husband for a romantic weekend!

My only mistake was to only allow time in my travels for one nights stay at the Cedar Grand! What a stunning hotel, great location and amazing staff.
By far the best night sleep I've ever had in the UK. Nice soft mattress, which I find hard to find. Perfect climate control. Washrooms were beautiful.

A night free from children to re-charge the batteries at the Cedar Court Grand was what the doctor ordered! Amazing surroundings and service. The room was fabulous and the size of the shower absolutely fantastic. Excellent maintained throughout and very attentive staff. A nice romantic meal nearby (Rustique) provided excellent value for money. Upon coming back to the Hotel a turn down service had been provided; nice touch. Breakfast on the day of departure provided a great end to a stay at a great Hotel. Back to reality now!
