Booked 1 day before we went, On their website £155. So we thought for that price for a room, afternoon tea and Breakfast it would not be up to much staying in a 5* hotel, eg box room, continental breakfast ( bread roll and a bit of ham ) afternoon tea ( scone and a cake ). How wrong were...

We have been to York several times and often walked by the Grand, which is a very impressive building. The rooms were exceptionally spacious but not particularly grand, the furnishings quite ordinary. The concierge on duty was very pleasant and helpful, as was the man taking the bags. They were both particularly nice. The breakfast and restaurant service very much...

Visited for our second visit with my sister. Room was beautiful, spacious and very comfortable. Beds, bathroom and all service was excellent. Beds turned down and relaxing music greet you on return to room in the evening. Tea and coffee facilities are great- good filter coffee in caftiere. You can even ring down for fresh milk if required. Breakfast was...

Booked through Secret escapes we had a two night break in an executive room. Our room was gorgeous and spotless with every amenity. There is some building work going on alongside the hotel but this did not disturb us. This Grand old building did not disappoint. The staff could not be more obliging. We had breakfast which as you would...

We have stayed previously at the Grand and again found the staff from Wayne who greeted us at the door, the porters and waiting staff helpful, friendly and attentive. Our room on the fourth floor was good but the window so high up I could not see out and did not have the wow factor of our previous stay. The...

Lovely hotel. Very beautiful building and decor. Lovely staff. They couldn't do enough for you, and volunteered to do things you didn't ask for. Lovely spa. Very comfortable. Lovely bar. Very good martinis. You have to mention when you pay the bar bill that there is a discount on the website for two cocktails for £15. Not one bad thing...

We've just returned from an overnight stay here and although the hotel was very good we would have been very disappointed if we had paid full price as it does not reach 5 stars in our opinion. The building is very grand with spacious hallways and well furnished cosy bar lounges. Great location not far from railway station and town...

This was my second visit to the Grand and I am already looking forward to returning. The service is superb from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. A special mention must go to the concierge desk who are incredibly efficient, polite and friendly. I would also like to pay tribute to the front desk, and most especially...

Myself and my partner visited the Grand as part of my 21st birthday celebrations. From the second that we arrived at The Grand, I was blown away.

Fantastic rooms, building and atmosphere. Spa is small but very well done. Breakfast is very good but dinner menu was a let down. York, one of the finest cities in England, has been under serviced by top class hotels for too long. This is hopefully changing but The Grand is so far ahead only the pricing will decide if it...
