Lovely old building in a perfect location in York, just minutes from the station and 5-10 minutes walk from York Minster and town centre. The staff were welcoming and very attentive. Our room (we were upgraded - for no specific reason - but happily accepted) was just lovely, plenty of room and facilities lacked nothing. The bathroom was huge with...

We stayed here as a birthday present from my sister. I could not have asks for more, the hotel staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. The spa looked amazing but unfortunately we did not have time to use it. The lifts were fast, we never had to wait long, the corridors were the widest I have seen, and very pleasantly...

This hotel certainly lived up to our expectations, every single member of staff said good morning and smiled at us, the afternoon tea was incredible, so much cake we had to box some up and take it away with us. Our room was huge and beautiful with spotless bathroom and lovely toiletries. Little touches like fudge and fruit and a...

This is a beautiful period hotel very close to the main station and five or ten minutes walk from the centre of town. Service from all the staff was excellent. We chose a fourth floor, deluxe bedroom which was large, quiet, very well appointed and very comfortable with a separate seating area. We stayed for four nights and enjoyed all...

Stayed here for 3 nights last week, we booked a classic double room, check-in was quick and easy - the receptionist with short cropped blonde hair (I'm not sure of her name) was really lovely and gave you service with a smile!

My wife and I decided we needed a break from all the stress that has been part of our life for the last year. We chose York as the destination and The Grand for the promise of a top class hotel. We were not disappointed. From the beautifully appointed room through the mouth watering dinner menu to every member of...

Different people will always have different opinions on this hotel - but having paid around £1400 for a 3 night stay in a Suite then my opinion is that its not worth that kind of money. The breakfast was acceptable on the one morning and substandard on the other two and was only just warm. We had a meal sent...

Firstly it is a beautiful building in a very good location in York. The staff were also very pleasant. Though at £286 for a room with cold breakfast for one night we wanted a bit more than smiling helpful staff. Unfortunately the Cedar Hotel Group haven't quite done the building justice. The furniture in the rooms is more a weak...
