“Christmas 2011 ~ shopping trip to York”
Reviewed 23 December 2011

We very much enjoyed our stay at The Grange Hotel, during the weekend before Christmas 2011. Service at the hotel was polished and professional ~ due to the staff and the highly visible General Manager (Mr Briffa), who clearly took pride in his work and the service to the guests, and ensured a highly presentable appearance of the hotel. Our room was excellent ~spacious, clean, well-serviced and the bath towels were exceptionally large and fluffy. Regrettably, we weren't able to book a table at the hotel's finest restaurant: "The Ivy" (as we had left it too late). Nevertheless, we had a pleasant meal in their basement restaurant: "New York Grill" and sampled their various cocktails! If there was one negative, it was the cold plate on which breakfast was served on our first morning (making the food lukewarm) ~ but this was corrected on the second day, after we had pointed it out. We would recommend the hotel to others, except that we intend to return, and don’t wish the hotel to be full and prevent us from coming back!

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the hotel and away from reception and the restaurant are (clearly) going to be...

Our initial impression of the The Grange Hotel was very favourable, and we were delighted with our room. When booking, your staff were most helpful and efficient, putting us in touch with a local taxi company who collected us from Leeds Bradford airport. After an enjoyable first days shopping in York, it was lovely to return to our very comfortable room. On our first evening we ate in the New York Grill, and found the quality of food to be excellent. We particularly enjoyed the service and chat with the barman who was on duty that evening. Breakfast the next morning was excellent, and could not be faulted. The service and the quality of the food was first class. After another busy days shopping, it was lovely to return to the open fire in the morning room.

We had a very pleasant stay at The Grange and would like to thank the management and staff for making this possible. We will certainly recomment The Grange to our friends and hope to return again some day.

Room Tip: Room 10, beautiful, comfortable, clean, quiet, spacious, excellent

Comfortable Hotel, (no lift) with Excellent chef!! Very close to York city centre, good for concerts at the Minster and Christmas shopping.Some parking. Very pleasant stay, and we will stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at back will be quieter, there is no lift so check if this is a challenge. We found the hotel...

Other than a modest attack of mildewed grout room v pleasant. Building as spectacular as always-stayed here since it first opened. BUT- soft furnishings in drawing room are knackered, artificial flowers bar an odd bunch of roses, and for the third time in a row food dreadful. Sent main back as close to inedible. This used to be such a good hotel, all that remains is the lovely building and the price tag.

We stayed at The Grange over the weekend of the York St. Nicholas Fayre.
The hotel is very conveniently situated for walking into the City Centre.

We booked a small double room which was suitable for the two of us. The room was clean, warm and the bathroom well stocked with toiletries and a constant supply of clean towels.

The staff were very poilite and extremely helpful.

On Saturday evening we had dinner in The Ivy, the food was wonderful, well presented and once again the service was exceptional.

Breakfasts served up a variety of food - something to suit all tastes and appetites.

We would certainly stay here again if visiting York.

Six family members stayed at this hotel for the weekend and a private dinner party for 12 was held in the Library/Drawing room, hired at additional cost. Every detail of the complicated organisational arrangements was carried out to perfection by friendly staff. The elegant ambience of the Library/Drawing Room was ideal for the occasion. The food was excellent and service impeccable.
The hotel itself had a very comfortable and characterful atmosphere. All the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. They gave the impression of really enjoying their work, an attitude which permeated throughout the hotel.
