“Feeling happy and relaxed”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

I am just back from a one night stay at the Cedar Court Grand (only one night as it is really expensive). A friend and I went with the intention to spend the weekend Christmas shopping. From the minute we arrived we felt so welcome and comfortable it was hard to leave the hotel. I have never been to a hotel that I didn't want to go out before. Our room was really comfortable. We spent a a couple of hours each day using the spa which is really relaxing. We used the hotel bar and went to the Mad Hatters Tea Party. The Mad Hatters Tea Party was great but I would think if you were going with kids it would be magical. The staff really could not do more to make us feel welcome. Breakfast was one of the best I have ever had. Book and enjoy!

Merry Xmas to the staff at Cedar Court.

Excellent Hotel and location was first class. The room itself was first clean and more than comfortable and the added touches of Molton Brown products in the bathroom were nice.

The spa facilities I have to admit where relaxing and both me and my wife enjoyed relaxing in the environment the hotel provides.

Excellent Hotel and I am sure I will be looking for more offers in 2014, to return to the hotel.

First class hotel and in my opinion the best in York.......

My daughter booked a one night stay for the two of us to celebrate my birthday. The hotel staff were very helpful and the premises were immaculate. The spa was very enjoyable. Being so close to the train station and within walking distance of the shops, I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting York.

The staff are wonderful and nothing is to much trouble, the turn down service with little presents was a nice change from chocolate, it was the extras that made this a wonderful place to stay.

We stayed Dec. 2-4. Our deluxe room was huge and beautiful. The concierge met us at the train station and helped us with our luggage. He made dinner reservations for us at a great restaurant and gave us recommendations as to what to see. He took us to our room, where he proceeded to explain all the features. He was fantastic! His name is Peter. We were offered complimentary tea when we checked in. We were made to feel very special! Kudos to this great hotel and its wonderful staff, most especially, the concierge.

Room Tip: We had a deluxe room, which was huge! Some rooms have more light than others, so choose accordingly.

Stayed two nights at this excellent hotel. Situated very close to the rail station and only a short walk into town. The hotel certainly ticks all the boxes for us. Rooms large and very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was very good. Also used the spa during our stay which was very relaxing. A true 5 star experience and will certainly make a return visit there on our next visit to the UK

My mum and I booked a Sunday night package with spa treatments for a reaxing, pre-Christmas shopping break.

The excellent hotel staff made the stay really enjoyable and the facilities at the hotel were lovely.

We had a twin room (number 9), a short walk to the right of the reception. The room was large, and very comfortable with all the expected facilities. Breakfast the following morning was a very high standard.

We had half hour spa treatments booked on the Sunday afternoon which were really nice, the spa was very relaxing and just what we were expecting. I had a Facial with a lady called Charlotte who was very professional and friendly. Best facial i've had!

My only criticism from our stay was that after our treatments we used the pool and other spa facilities. Unfortunately, there were some other hotel guests also using the pool, they had children and were jumping in and out of the pool. This was not the hotels fault, but felt more like a pool in butlins than a spa.

We also had afternoon tea booked on the Monday afternoon. It was served in the restaurant and was really yummy! Again, the hotel staff were very attentive and courteous.

In particular, Pete, the concierge was very helpful and attentive. He made our stay very enjoyable.

Room Tip: We had room number 9, twin room, great room, not a great view, but we were not there to look out the...
