Spent 3 nights in York at the Grange and after reading their appointment to the Sunday Times Top 100 Hotels in the World, thought we'd be in for a treat. We got a 3 nights for the price of 2 offer which I felt was still overpriced for its location, services and amenities. Ordinarily this type of room would have cost us in excess of £500 for 3 nights.
On the positive - Great looking room, albeit small, obviously recently refurbished but the finish around the room was a little poor - badly grouted/ siliconed bath area/ wallpaper peeling at edges. Good location - 5 minute walk to town. Mostly very friendly and efficient staff making your stay as enjoyable as possible.
On the not so good side - Car parking a problem - whilst the hotel offer to take your keys and move the car in to a space when it becomes available (great idea!) we had to wait for 10-15minutes on two occassions for the hotel to come and move cars that had blocked us in. TV in the bath was great but it only had 4 out of the 15 hotel channels available to watch. Food was average- i had to send my main course back one night - the beef was so dry it should never have got sent out. The prices are high enough,, so why not the quality of the food? Breakfast was OK, but on the small side.
As other reviews suggest, could be so good but lacks a few things to make it a good hotel from an average one.
