Reviewed 15 January 2014

We visited The Grange Hotel in York which is about 10 minutes walk into the city centre. There was a lovely greeting from the lady on the reception desk. We found the room very comfortable, bathroom exceptional, very clean and loads of hot water. The only drawback was that the room was situated down the side street, you could hear all the traffic and bin men come and go. Also the door round the back entrance you could hear opening and shutting all the time.
The building itself was very interesting and straight away you get the feeling that it was a former house of gentry, in fact two houses converted together.
The food also was excellent in the evening and we enjoyed it very much, the service from the staff was also excellent. The breakfast was as we thought going off the food and service we had in the evening. We shall certainly return to this hotel when visiting York again. Many Thanks for a lovely break. Mr & Mrs Jones.

My fiancé and I stayed at The Grange for eon night to celebrate our recent engagement. Upon arrival at the hotel. We were wowed by its beautiful exterior and we're greeted by a very friendly young lady at the desk. We were given the keys to room 10 and were very impressed by the decor, everything matched and it was absolutely beautiful. The chest of drawers in the room however might be on the more shabby side of shabby chic with the rickety drawers and broken knob but I thought the furniture added to the character of the traditional decor.
On the dresser, the staff had left an engagement card for us which was a lovely personal touch. The products in the bathroom were all from The White Company and they smelt wonderful, the couples bathrobes were also a lovely touch too. My only complaint about the bathroom would be that perhaps the tiles could do with regrouting.
There was a fridge in the wardrobe stocked with sparkling and still water and fresh milk for the tea of coffee, the range of which was extensive might I add, even having peppermint and chamomile tea.
We had some trouble with other guests playing loud music both very late at night and very early in the morning. We called reception and both times our complaint was dealt with swiftly, just a shame the guests didn't listen the first time round!
Overall a fantastic stay and we would be delighted to stay again.

It's about 3years since we stayed at the Grange in York, the hotel is in a great location a few hundred yards from the city walls,accommodation was very good,double room was well presented and cosy,we stayed on a bed and breakfast deal as there are lots of choice of pubs and restaurants nearby,the hotel interior is quaint and welcoming although the car park was not very big and surrounding streets have parking meters that should'nt put you off as we would definitely stay there when visiting York.

Room Tip: Recommend higher floor room

This is a charming "country house style" hotel within a short walk of central York. Plenty of parking at the rear of the hotel (but this was during the week). Very comfortable lounge to relax in and the hotel looked charming with the remains of the Christmas decorations in the restaurant and lounge. Very comfortable bed with quality sheets and duvet. White Company products in the bathroom. Plenty of towels. We would certainly stay here again. The staff were very helpful and professional.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the Hotel.

Very comfortable hotel. Friendly efficient staff. Cosy lounge to relax in, maybe with coffee after a meal. Excellent Ivy Restaurant with imaginative fine dining. Clean comfortable rooms. Good location with short walk into town, or across the river to the station or railway museum. Loved it.

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the back away from the main road. No lift.

We stayed at the Grange from December 30th- January 2nd. We had an amazing time, every was great! Our package included 3 meals and 3 breakfasts all of which was delicious, service was very high quality.

We were in a premier room which was spacious, quiet, romantic and had everything we needed. The hotel itself was about a 10 minute walk to the minster, the location was ideal.

I highly recommend the hotel to anyone looking to stay in york- espeically over new year- was magical!
