I chose a two day stay in York at The Grange as a present for my fiancé for his birthday. When we arrived we were greeted by the friendly girl on the front desk who was very helpful, told us where to park and that we had been upgraded. I don't know what our original standard room would have been like but the room we were upgraded to was beautiful, spacious, clean and gorgeously decorated. The White Company toiletries were a lovely touch.
Breakfast was delicious, plentiful and a good selection. The freshly squeezed orange juice on the first morning was lovely, shame that the next day it was from concentrate. We had afternoon tea on one day which was great - some of the best scones I have ever had.
Only a couple of minor negative points. The first was that the housemaids didn't always clean up after themselves in public areas and so there was a laundry bag outside our room for a good few hours, and the storage cupboard was left open outside our room as well. The second is that hall areas and reception could do with a bit of decorating. It looks a bit tired, wallpaper flaking, chipped paint etc. None of these negatively impacted on my stay, but stopped it being a five for me.
Overall a great stay in York. The service was excellent, staff could not be more helpful, the room was beautiful, quiet and very comfortable and breakfast was fresh and delicious. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone going to York.
Thank you for helping to make my fiancés birthday a memorable for the right reasons.
