Reviewed 29 June 2014

We love staying at the Cedar Court in York, York has so much to offer but we still just stay in the hotel sometimes. The pool is always warm and inviting and the food is so good too. Pull up outside and your car is taken care of until you leave, no worries about parking.

Room Tip: Penthouse is worth the money....

Holy moly. What a fantastic place. Possibly the most luxurious hotel I've ever stayed in. It was, after all, as the concierge reminded us, the only 5-star hotel in Yorkshire. (Or possibly the first?)
Super convenient to the train station, huge rooms (15' ceilings?), very comfortable beds, great big bathtubs, and friendly, helpful staff. No complaints whatsoever. Can't even imagine what anyone might possibly find to complain about.

Never been to York and decided to celebrate our anniversary there, chose the hotel based on reviews. Couldn't fault it. Will be going back to make more use of the facilities. The hotel even waived the bill for the meal in the Hudsons restaurant, thank you cedar court absolutely fantastic

Myself and two girl friends had a spa package at this wonderful hotel,it included afternoon tea and an hours spa treatment overnight stay and continental breakfast and apart from a tiny hickup on checkout I cannot fault the place, the staff are very friendly and helpful (all of them) rooms were sheer luxury, drinking a Hendricks gin out of a china cup and saucer was a different experience and I had the best back massage ever, looking forward to our next trip.

Had a four night stay at Cedar Court. Wonderful welcome at reception. Car whisked away to be parked by porter. Another one showed us to our room which was clean and spacious. The cocktail bar was relaxing. All the staff greeted us warmly but the best staff were in the dining rooms and I have to mention my favorite who is Sabbi a lovely friendly man who put us at ease straight away. He told us to try the afternoon tea which was fabulous we couldn't move afterwards!
Bye Cedar we will be back.

Room Tip: Ask whether there is a function going on when you book.

Having spent two hours enjoying drinks and a fantastic afternoon tea sitting on the terrace life doesn't't get much better than this. From entering the hotel the staff made us feel very welcome with their friendly and cheerful attitude.
