Had a two night stay with dinner on the second night. All staff receptive, welcoming and extremely professional. Check in smooth and efficient. Room was very spacious comfortable and clean with anythong that you could possibly want during your stay. Tea, coffee, water and all toiletries replenished each day. Hotel was very quiet with a sense of serenity. Whisky lounge...

Having been bought, for Christmas, a Champagne afternoon tea package at the Grand, we decided to make a short break out of this and what a super choice we made! The Grand has been turned into York's only 5* hotel from one of its many old railway heritage buildings - in this case the headquarters of the North East Railway...

Be advised that at the moment a large construction site is running at the back of the super hotel they have just finished work 1750 .26/04/17.This is obviously a large project and has been going on for some time but no mention when you book so it's buyer beware.james Fletcher room 9.

I could not fault this hotel. All staff were friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Hotel was very clean even in the swimming pool areas. Our twin bedded room was very good, quality of bedding excellent. The location was perfect, 5 mins from station and town centre. Would recommend this hotel.

Incredible hotel which stands out from the surround buildings proudly. Attentive staff and great porters! Food looked amazing but we didn't eat. It was nice to go into one of the lounges and not have to fight through crowds of people for a seat, very grown up atmosphere. Some of the furniture in the lounges did look tired and mine...

We'd booked a deluxe room. I was slightly surprised to have been charged, in full, two months before our stay. This has never happened before and we have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world. On arrival my credit card was taken and a further £200 was immediately charged 'on account'. Fine with me but I've never...

Hotel was fantastic. Car parked for us on arrival and reception were friendly and helpful. Room was large, clean and had everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Food was great but it is a little bit pricy. With that said, I guess you need to expect that when you stay in a 5 star. The spa was...
