Reviewed 10 April 2014

We booked this hotel for one night, for a mini-break with my husband, and didn't expect a great deal given the bargain price for a last minute king room. The hotel exceeded our expectations: it is located a short and pleasant stroll from the minster and has real kerb appeal. We managed to park in the car park and our room was large and beautiful and even though it was on the ground floor and at the front of the building, right next to the road, we had a great night's sleep with very little road noise. Really lovely.

One of the best beds I've slept in, brilliant sized room furnished very nicely. Although the bathroom was a bit pokey, could use a little updating. Never got round to the breakfast, would have been nice not to have to leave so early due to check out times.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review The Grange. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and had a great nights sleep. There are some bathrooms that are on our 'to do' list and will be undergoing refurbishment soon.

It's a shame that you didn't find time to have breakfast. Room service could have been the answer or organising a late check out. Perhaps next time!

We look forward to seeing you again,

Kind regards, Jackie

We had a long weekend at The Grange in mid-March to celebrate a wedding anniversary. We had room 4, just off the main lobby and overlooking the car park at the rear of the hotel. We thought that might be a problem with noise but were proved wrong. The room was comfortable with a large four-poster bed, plenty of storage and all usual amenities. The fresh milk for tea and coffee was a plus. We eat in the brasserie on Friday and in The Ivy restauarant on Saturday. Both had plenty of choice on the menus and the food was very good. A bit of confusion with our meals in The Ivy was handled well and rectified quickly by the manager.

There was plenty of choice for breakfast with fruit, cereal or cooked all available. I went for the full English which set me up for the day. There is a comfortable lounge for a relaxing sit and a drink after the exertions of exploring York.

The Grange is a ten minute level stroll to the MInster and then a few minutes more into the heart of the shopping area.

We would also recommend 31Castlegate restaurant near the York museum where we had our meal on Sunday evening. A small, intimate place but first- class food and service.

We would certainly stay at The Grange again if ever we venture up that way in the future.

Lovely hotel, perfect location. Would most certainly stay when visit York again. The Breakfast was very nice, very hot and cooked to a high standard . Nothing was too much trouble for the staff . It is only a ten minute wall from the Minster and Shambles.

My wife and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary with our 3 month old baby daughter. All the staff were extremely accommodating and highly pleasant. I cannot believe there were people in the reception moaning that there was no lift, or that the floor boards squeaked! Obviously trying to pull a fast one to get money off their check out bill! You know who you are!
We cannot recommend The Grange highly enough, especially when the staff were more than happy to help me jump start my car!

Staff= wonderful
Food = delicious
Decor and atmosphere = stunning
Attitude of particular guests = outrageous

Many thanks to all at the grange for making our wedding anniversary exceptional.

I can whole-heartedly recommend the Grange Hotel in York. It is a medium-sized hotel in walking distance from centre and railway, handsome building, stately sitting room and comfy restaurant. Best thing was comfort of bedrooms - gorgeous huge bed, fluffy towels and everything as it should be. The staff were enthusiastic and friendly but just a tiny bit chaotic. All the hotel needs is a ward matron-type manager to go from very good to excellent.

Room Tip: We were in Room 10 which was easy to find and well-appointed. All the rooms I saw were of high quali...

A very comfortable and well run hotel, with exceptionally helpful and welcoming staff. How nice to find an hotel which has a beautiful guest lounge with roaring fire. We stayed in the suite, with large bright rooms, perfectly prepared each day. Love that there is fresh milk for early morning tea!
The Brasserie is relaxing and the food there is good value. Our only disappointment was the restaurant which is less bright in every way than it should have been - the dinner did not live up to the expectation created by the hotel website, and the dining room itself is tired and lacks sparkle. That said, we would stay here again for there is a great deal of charm to the place, it is so convenient for walking to all the sights and there is car parking!
