I recently visited the Grand Hotel & Spa for a second time, confirming that it is by far one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The staff are superb, Alan on the door being a big star in particular. I cannot fault the Grand. It's not cheap, but the quality is priceless. Thank you for giving me another...

Firstly let me say how much we enjoyed staying at The Grand. In general this hotel is an excellent base to explore York but there are a couple of points I'd like to make. Our room was very spacious and generally in good working order. The only thing I will mention about the room that let it down slightly was...

Stylish, comfortable hotel. Staff polite and helpful. One or two small instances where they lost their way but not sufficient to downgrade them. Good location just along from the train station and not too far from the city centre. Room service food was splendid by standards. Would certainly recommend this hotel

My husband arranged a surprise visit here for my birthday. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome. The room was beautiful and they even provided slippers and dressing gown for my 4 year old daughter which she loved as well as an activity book. We had afternoon tea which was delicious and the spa facilities...

A stay at this hotel and an evening at The Theatre Royal (Margaret, Murder and Me) was a Christmas present. Not here to talk about the theatre, which by the way was most enjoyable, but our lovely experience at this awesome hotel. From checking in, the comfortable and spacious room, the friendly, professional and helpful staff to the great breakfast,...

My boyfriend bought me a voucher for the grand hotel for Christmas for an overnight stay. We booked near valentines to make the most of the voucher. We have stayed at the grand hotel previously and it was absolutely perfect. We were not disappointed this time. From the moment we walked in the door we were welcome by warm, friendly,...

It's easy to review if a hotel is great or bad. A bit harder if it goes a bit wrong but things happen and they step up to the plate here. A few too many computer system changes means that even if you have stayed a previous year... your preferences/room choice etc. are on the old system. However, with a...

A special mention to Alan,,Graham and Daniel who all offered exceptional friendly and helpful service.( Jess talked us round the one way system over the phone when we got lost due to road closures). We stayed on the third floor and the junior suite as fine if a little lacking in natural light and with a corporate feel. This was...

We booked afternoon tea here as a Christmas gift for my mum and booked to come on Friday. The whole experience was fantastic- from the packaging of the gift voucher to the quality of the food. The service was wonderful, attentive when needed but we were left to enjoy our afternoon tea without being interrupted. A glance in the direction...
