We had a lovely afternoon tea. Service was fantastic. Really nice and attentive. Especially the lady who was seating people / reception and a nice young chap serving us. The Only issue was the ratio of savoury to sweet ! I would suggest less desserts and more savoury options as we left over half of the desserts (they were tasty...

I don't usually write reviews but I feel that after the phenomenal service that the Grand Hotel & Spa provide, I just had to let others know how amazing it is. My partner and I first visited probably around 3 years ago. Literally from the first moment you arrive at the hotel, the concierge takes your car keys and takes...

After meeting my brothers at the hotel, we booked in and were shown to our very nice rooms. I have great difficulty walking but the staff were marvellous and helped me at all times. The food in the evening was out of this world, we had the tasting menu and I would strongly recommend it. As I mentioned I have...

I really like this hotel - it is not just in a good location (near the minster, river and museums), but is also nicely decorated with good sized, well equipped rooms. The bar is lovely, if a little cosy and the whiskey menu is super and reasonably priced. Definitely will be back!

We enjoyed every minute... The hotel is located in a historical beautiful building, the rooms are big and spotless, the bed and pillows are comfortable but what really makes it remarkable is the excellent crew, they are so attentive, polite, professional and caring. We are all ready planning our next visit.

We stayed here on a 3 day trip to York and were very pleased with our choice. We arrived by train from London and the 5 minute walk from the station to the hotel was very convenient. The hotel is in a great location and we were able to walk to most of the major sites in town in less...

From the moment we arrived by car and they parked it for us, we didn't have to lift a finger. All the staff were so courteous and friendly. In particular Wayne the doorman. What a lovely true gentleman. He unloaded the bags from the car and always there to give advice on locations. Molton brown toiletries in the room. Bedroom...
