My husband and I stayed for 1 night at The Grange, and were lucky enough to have a four-poster bed in Room 35.
Based on the decor of the rest of the hotel (dated and dark), I was pleasantly surprised that the room was decorated in whites and pale blues, with white-washed furniture and a modern bathroom with rain shower and tub.
The reason I have only scored the hotel as average is mainly because of the DREADFUL room service breakfast! We ordered scrambled eggs with bacon, and poached eggs with smoked salmon. Our tray contained literally that. No accompanying toast, condiments etc. The food was stone cold, and honestly inedible. Cold eggs for breakfast are just horrible.
I was disappointed with the way reception handled this as we called up straight away and were told that whatever we didn't eat would be taken off the bill. We then had a lengthier than necessary checkout, as nothing had been done. I don't want to waste my time talking about cold eggs to the hotel manager, when the receptionist should be able to just sort it out and apologize.
This hotel is well-situated for a trip to York, well-priced and if you get the right room (35 in our case) and avoid room service, you could have a good stay!
