“December 2012 young couple”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2013

The hotel is very well appointed and is just a few minutes walk into York centre.
The receptionist was very helpful and polite as were all the staff.
My only gripes are that the hotel was overheated to such an extent that even with the windows open (in winter and after a skinfull!) I was unable to have a good nights sleep.
Also the vegetarian breakfast (which cost £10 extra )was almost inedible and took ages to arrive.
Decent quality food really doesn't cost that much and serving up some frozen muck just ruins the good work of the other staff.

Excellent stay, excellent staff, excellent atmosphere ( very chilled and relaxed which is what we wanted ). Excellent food. Excellent staff (did I say that?)
What a great Christmas we had at the Grange Hotel in York. We have nothing bad to say.

Room Tip: Choose it.

Just got back from spending our first Christmas at the Grange and hopefully it will not be our last.A beautiful hotel with lovely comfortable rooms a very stylish restaurant serving delicious food, friendly, efficient staff and only a short walk from the Minster. There were lots of little extra touches from champagne and canapes before dinner, chocolates and fruit in the room and a visit from the owner to welcome us and to ensure that we were all enjoying ourselves. There was a visit from a choir who sang carols by a magnificent christmas tree on Christmas Eve and a real fire and fairy lights. On Boxing day, there was an optional excursion to the Herriot museum in Thirsk, before which we were treated to a superb lunch at the Crab and Lobster in Asenby. A magical Christmas and excellent value.

Room Tip: our room overlooked the car park, which was handy for ferrying luggage back and forth and there was...

Friendly staff, even though weather was lousy they made stay pleasant. Rooms was individually designed, nice toiletries and a generally pleasant one night stay. The hotel was close to city centre and there was plenty to do in one day. Wifi was free and that is always a bonus nowadays.

I attended the Grange for business recently and had a great stay - beautiful surroundings, gorgeous meal and lovely atmosphere. However, it was the kind and caring attitude of the staff that stood out. Unfortunately having left the hotel I had a fall outside, my own fault entirely, but the hotel could not have been kinder or more caring. Their genuine concern, swift action and the thoughtful care they provided made me so incrediably grateful. It makes such a difference to encounter such kindness, especially under such difficult circumstances. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Some colleagues and I have an annual overnight business meeting at The Grange every December, and have been doing so for a number of years. Still works for me!
York is a great and atmospheric location - particularly at Christmas. The Grange is a lovely, charming period hotel. I notice it is linked with The George at Hathersage and The Cavendish at Baslow. They do have clear similarities.
Still as comfortable and welcoming, though I did notice that the Christmas tree that towers through the spiral staircase was a floor shorter this year - though it never ceased to amaze me how they got it in anyway.
Food is fine, breakfasts great. Someone earlier was complaining that the Breakfasts were too small..............how much do you eat!?
For Business it is fantastic, you can hire the Library and adjoining Drawing room, which works really well and they will serve you a private dinner in the Library.
I keep promising to go back one December with my wife, as it would also make a very romantic location.
Not cheap, but overall I would highly recommend.
